Re: PLA temperatures

Well, the print finished and I guess the nozzle temp at 264c was too high, because all the details are melted.

With the PLA setting, the nozzle should be around 194c as it shows on the maintenence screen.

Re: PLA temperatures

I dunno, still won't print and I've tried all kinds of ranges. Only when I go back to ABS with a platform temp setting of 100c will it print. Could it be the software? I'm still using v1.12 and and never updated the ROM ? Looks like it is printing the PLA ok at the ABS settings, but only viewing the...

Re: PLA temperatures

Hi Peter,

Thanks! So I'll try and shoot for a setting between 47 and 53 degrees.
Although, when I had it set at 50c I wonder why it wouldn't work?

Re: PLA temperatures

No, I don't get any errors, it just won't start printing. The reason that I built my own platform is because of problems in getting too hot and I got that message. Since I installed the pot, I can go to the maintenance screen and "dial in" the pot and read what the temp is on screen. For the ABS, I ...

Re: PLA temperatures

Hi Wilsonj,

I set the temp to 50c for the platform and sent the file, but my machine won't start printing.

Any clue? It always worked great with ABS.

PLA temperatures

Hi All, I just am getting around to trying out PLA material. I know that the machine has a setting for PLA material, but does anyone know what the machine temps are set for, nozzle and table? I have built my own heat powered table and have replaced the sensor for the standard table with a potentiome...

Re: Changing Raft parameters

Ok, so if the lines adjustment doesn't affect the raft, what does it do?

Is there any other documentation that fully explains all the adjustments available in the setup?
I've been through the manual many times, and I don't have a clear picture as to what all
the values can change.

Thanks all -

Re: posting

Does anyone know how many posts it takes until the "newbies" monitoring goes away?
This is most frustrating to wait so long to get help or make a comment. I realize that
there must be a lot of spamming in these forums but it still is a royal pain in a time
where things happen very fast. :?

Changing Raft parameters

Hi Everyone- I've been experimenting with some settings in my attempts to find a better way to separate the Raft from my parts. I made a log sheet and have tried to change only one setting at a time to see the results. The attached photo shows changes to the support only as I stopped it before it fi...

Re: UP! Software and ROM v1.17 Final

Hi EyUP,

So could I just install the latest rom, then install the v1.17? or do I need to go through all the
earlier versions and work up to the latest?
Can you help me with what version I need to install next?
Thanks

Can anyone tell me about posting? I posted 2 messages in another forum yesterday, and I
don't see them appearing? I was hoping to get some help with a problem, but without
my posts appearing, no one can help me.

Re: UP! Software and ROM v1.17 Final

Hi All- I've been having the same problem with getting 1.17 to run on an original machine. I've read about installing 1.14 and update the rom to 6.03. I downloaded the file, but it is an .exe file instead of the zip files that I have for 1.12 and 1.17. My v1.12 unzipped to a folder with several file...

Re: UP! Software and ROM v1.17 Final

Hi Everybody, Ok, so I'm a bit new to this game...I have an original machine and also can't install the new v1.17. I've read the suggestions about installing v1.14 and I downloaded it, but unlike the v1.17 which was a zip file and contained a bunch of new files, the 1.14 is only an .exe file. When I...
