me again... heh... DSE Stage 09 - Heater Checks and Fan Shrouds I'm a bit worried about the second extruder... When I fed the PVA-filament into the second extruder, it immediately began to smoke with a very strong smell. It seems as soon as I put the power on of the printer, extruder 2 goes to 255°C, while extruder 1 doesn't heat up. In the preheating step I can warm up the first one perfectly, but the second extruder stays on 255°C, no matter what temperature I set, it won't cool down. It's nozzle turned a bit black... probably from the silver pva-filament I guess... Am I doing something wrong? Thx again :-)

DSE Stage 7 - step 13+14 I may have a problem finding the centre of the platform for both X and Y. Also the auto-levelling goes about 2cm off the platform (left side + frontside) It looks like it's rather the probe which levels above the centre of the platfor instead of the nozzle. It also looks as if the centre of the platform comes a tiny little higher than the 4 corners. Not problematic during auto-levelling, but not sure if this is ok... It looks as if the platform is not 100% flat... Should I be worried?

I'm on "DSE Stage 7 - step 10 : probe alignment" now and figured while the nozzle still has about 1mm space above the bed, one of the second print fans is already thouching the printbed, which prevents me from sliding a folded paper under the nozzle. Should I slightly bend the second print fan mount (DSE Stage 3 - step 3) to lift up the fan a little bit?
