Re: Bed levelling problèms _ PRINT int on glass

You will need to use the knobs on the bottom of the bed to level it. In upstudio you can click each corner on the calibration screen to move the hotend to each corner. Level the bed by moving it up and down using the software controls on the printer itself, then using the feeler card adjust each cor...

Re: Looking at buying UP300 but support?

I'll second what cj7hawk has said. For me it is a great machine, but the walls not sticking to infill bug has put a serious damper on my use of the machine. If GCODE support would be added I could make all these issues go away by using Simplify3D or Slic3r, Cura, etc.. I filed a ticket essentially e...

Hi.
I'm still lost. Every print? Why would you do an auto level on every print?

First post says:
The new version of UP Studio has a bug that is forcing a manual nozzle height check with the calibration card every time an auto level is performed.

Re: How to improve Extruder filament clamping pressure

Nice mod!! Looks very similar to the TPU extruder on the UP300.

Good to know there's options for extruder modifications.

Re: Filament coming up during printing

Have you cleaned the print surface with 100% acetone or isopropyl alcohol? Its essential it is clean, don't get fingerprints on it.

See screenshot attached. I guess the good news is they reverted. As a computer science student learning about version control, standardized software testing and the processes that go into vetting software I have to ask how this could have happened in the first place. What a joke. Thank goodnessI did...

Re: Up box+ stepper motor not working

Have you unplugged the extruder while the machine is initialized? So your printer isn't sending power to the extruder motor? Stepper motor driver chips can be killed if you unplug the motor while it is powered on. If this is the case you'll need to replace the main board in the back of the printer, ...

Re: 300_1.4.7_update no Touchscreen function anymore

:cry: oof. Yes that is a problem. I won't be updating my printer at the risk of the same thing happening. You didn't interrupt the update process while it was updating or something unusual like that? Honestly I'd file a ticket with the vendor who sold the printer to you. I've found that they are mor...

They sometimes take days to respond, other times as quick as an hour or two. Have you tried putting the older firmware version back onto it? I have a copy of the 1.3.22 firmware attached in case you would like to go back. I still had it saved and see it isn't available for download on the download p...

Re: Grinding on and on

I found my first layer was too low on the print bed. Get a good first layer height. I also found that when my material temperature was too low it would grind. Print at the recommended temperature for the filament since its UP branded you should be able to go off that I'm guessing, however I have fou...

File a ticket with support. The support team doesn't appear to frequent the forums so I doubt they'll have seen your request.

Re: ABS warping on the larger build plate.

I might put a PEI sheet on my one to replace "buildtak" type surface at some point if I don't like the buildtak for PLA (I have yet to test it). My Original Prusa i3 has PEI on the bed and its a delight for PLA.

Re: UP Studio 2.6.20.627

Yep. I'm having the same issues here. It would be even better if they just add GCODE support. I'll be able to bypass all the issues with infill, bugs, raft sizes etc and just use the tried and true Simplify3D software which lets me customize every aspect of it all. I had a ticket open for adding gco...
