Re: Connectors for making Hootend / extuderswaps easier

10A for those crimps should be a walk in the park, at least while they are new and tight. I use the "butt splice" ones to wire some quite large electrical motors regularly.

Re: What kind of print defect is this?

OK, one more picture:

This was a failed print, for other reasons besides the horizontal holes. However, it shows no signs of underextrusion that I can see near the holes. So I would say that the "Extra prime" setting is the way to go.

Regards,

Paulo

Re: What kind of print defect is this?

Well, that test part was a loss of time: the holes were too big and not so close to the edge to show the underextrusion. However, a mistake I made with Cura while printing another part seems to confirm my theory: I forgot to reset the "Extra Prime Amount" setting to it's last known good value (0.64)...

Re: What kind of print defect is this?

I think so. I'm just now printing a small test part and will post the results later today.

Re: What kind of print defect is this?

OK, finally managed to get some pictures - and host them. Here is one of the defects: http://i.imgur.com/Qn7aiAs.jpg It seems to underextrude after the hole. Another part, this one with the "Extra Prime Amount": http://i.imgur.com/hTIjhvA.jpg That seems to improve thing a bit. :D I will also try to ...

Re: What kind of print defect is this?

OK, some news.

My latest prints show some improvement with the "Extra Prime Ammount" setting. It seems that my bodged extruder "oozes" as soon as it is turned of and so it fails to extrude just after it retracts.

Let me see if later today I can get some pictures.

Re: What kind of print defect is this?

Hello, Stefan, I really don't know if slowing down the print would significantly help. For what happened to me yesterday... I have to say it wouldn't help much. You see, out of pure frustration I started a print at about 60 mm/s - usually I print at 40 to 45, even though I think I can go up to 80 or...

Re: What kind of print defect is this?

Seems the same problem I have with horizontal holes/slits near the edge of the print. As far as I gathered this is related to slicer settings rather than printer hardware. I've seen it in a few places and even on a 3d printed part featured on a Youtube channel - non 3d printing related, BTW. Theory ...
