Re: PETG hair

Could try some coast (.2-.5) and possibly 5-10% more fan. Coast will stop the extruding (decreasing back pressure) before the tool move. Fan will help to lock that extrusion in place. Jimc is probably right, that might be the best you'll get...

Re: Problem with wall thickness in single outline mode (spir

To extrude 100mm, Machine Control Panel -> Jog Controls -> Extrude 100 button

May need to use the arrows to reveal the "Jog Controls" tab/panel.

Re: Problem with wall thickness in single outline mode (spir

I think you're just getting to know your machine. :) What is the nozzle diameter? Typically the extrusion width should be between 105% to 170% of the diameter. So expecting a 1mm wall (spiral vase) from a .5 nozzle would be a stretch, IMO. In a perfect world, you should get .75mm width if the multip...

Re: Is there a way to slow down the X/Y printing during fill

Maybe that's the lowest layer height recommended for the machine. Getting under .1 is ambitious for any FDM machine. If you're trying to achieve a smooth as glass finish... that's better achieved with a SLA type printer. Looking at the print from the other machine, its not completely artifact free.....

Re: Filament diameter should be per extruder property

The filament diameter can be stored in the "Quality" autoconfigure profile through the following tag: <filamentDiameter>3</filamentDiameter> It requires manual manipulation of the FFF. I haven't tried to print with the profiles with the new tag, but have validated that adding the tag does change all...

Re: Lulzbot Taz5 FlexyDually V2 profile

That's what you get for being an early adopter. :) Congrats, BTW. So if you can't wait, start by loading the base dual extruder profile for the TAZ5 then start adding Material/Quality sub profiles. LB's Cura stores the FlexyDually V2 profiles in: On PC - C:\Program Files (x86)\Cura_17.10\resources\q...

Re: Is there a way to slow down the X/Y printing during fill

Do they punch these things out so fast that the dies start to get worn and I got a "BIGGER" one? I just did a simple filament load test for 30 and then printed a single wall cube for a bit... BOTH measured 0.64mm!!! :o :shock: not the standard .48 to .50 that I see everywhere and what S3D has plugg...

Re: Processes and layer height ???

Cross section tool and some math.

height (mm) / layer height= layer?

layer height * layer = height (mm)

Re: Issue with Ooze Shield?

More likely a problem with the retraction. Try increasing to help keep the ooze in the nozzle... it may also be a sign that the extrusion temp may be too hot by a 1-2C.
