Re: Getting Rid of Blobs With PETG?

Ah! I didn't know that was an option. I'm still very new to S3D. In any event, I chopped off all but the top half inch or so of my model & trimmed it down to one corner where I see a lot of issues. It's working nicely as a test vehicle. I've cranked the "coast" setting up to 1.5mm. Any higher and I ...

Re: Getting Rid of Blobs With PETG?

I've done some digging, and it looks like the magic parameter is going to be "Coast", possibly balanced with tweaks to the Restart Distance, both of which I have turned off at the moment. Does anyone have suggestions for values to start with? I've seen coast numbers for PETG anywhere from 0.2 to 1 m...

Getting Rid of Blobs With PETG?

I have a MakerGear M2E, and I'm printing with HatchBox PETG. It's working pretty well, but I'm getting blobs of extra material in places. It is quite repeatable, so it's not a filament issue. I can see in the S3D preview mode exactly where they are occurring. It shows up as a small speed up in the e...

Have you read this? https://www.simplify3d.com/support/print-quality-troubleshooting/#layer-shifting-or-misalignment Yes, but I don't think it quite applies, other than that my nozzle may be whacking into the print and is getting knocked slightly out of position. I ran a test yesterday, with exactl...

Small X&Y Layer Shift in Mid-Print?

I'm just getting started in 3D printing, and have a new MakerGear M2E. For my first "real" print job, I grabbed a few accessories off Thingiverse, tossed them into S3D, and fired it up. I parked the parts on the bed somewhat randomly. They are three heights, with the shortest parts in between the tw...
