Re: GLCD on Smoothieware (Azteeg X5 Mini)

Do you just get a blank blue screen? I had the same issue and found out that I had to reverse one of the cables, don't remember which one.

Re: 3mm vs 1.75mm Filament?

I just started printer 3mm filament with my newly built Prusa i2. So far it's working pretty good. I'm wondering if 3mm filament jams up less, since there would be less chance of it swelling? Also, some of the best 3D printers like the Ultimaker use 3mm filament, so there must be something to it.

Re: Severe underextrusion with PLA, ABS prints perfectly

i have had similar problems when switching from ABS to PLA. Seems that some ABS might get stuck in the nozzle and cause the PLA to gunk up. I now use a different 3D printer for ABS, or buy some new nozzles and swap them out.

3mm vs 1.75mm Filament?

I'm building a Prusa i2 with a j-head 3mm hotend. I see lots of great deals on Ebay for 3mm Filament, but my questions is how does it compare with 1.75mm when printing?
