Hello people, I was having terrible problems with temperatures fluctuations and my prints didn't start when using octoprint because the temperature was too unstable. Recently I found a simple fix using a 10v1000uf capacitor in the board 5v pins. Now take a look at my temps after this change: They are pretty stable!!! and finally started to print from octoprint. You can do this really quick and for cheap, I found this information in the following video (method 2): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCtL0Yd_w0I I hope this helps people from the thread "Printing stops" and others reporting different issues.
Hi everyone. After destroying my flexplate trying to remove a PETG print, any advice on how to print and remove the printed object after without ruining the bed ? I ordered new ones but wouldn't want to use them for one print only, not telling you how much time it took me to remove the bed cover from the printed part. Wil glue ease the remove ? Maybe removing while bed still hot ? Any advice would be appreciated
Hi, Finally, after 2 weeks building it (this is my first 3D printer), I can print ! I had to solve few problems but now it kind of works. But I still have a strange trouble and no clue on how to solve it. When starting a print, the printer auto level then starts the first layer. On the center position, the Z height is correct but on the front side on the Y axis (towards the screen), nozzle is too high so hardly sticks to the bed while on the rear side of the Y axis, nozzle is too low so I nearly have no filament on the bed. This trouble is only on the Y axis. The X axis keeps the same Z nozzle height. As the printer auto level, I don't understand why this happens. I see no way to solve this problem. As there are 2 step motors for the Z, I tried to manually lower the front one to compensate before power on but it changes nothing. It's like the auto level is making a mistake. I have the dual extruder Proforge 2S and the upgraded heated bed and flex plate. This would be nice to find help on this one. Best regards, Yodine
