I recently picked up eSUN black PETG. I read that it is wonderful once you get the print settings down. Unfortunately I spent about 4 or 5 hours yesterday with different settings I have found on the internet, to no avail. I am using Simplify 3d and I am hoping that someone already has a template for the settings for this filament.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
edit: If someone has a .fff profile for S3D I would be so grateful.
Love hate relationship with this printer, not had a good experience with XYZ support, my cartridges are either not recognized, or they set to 200M instead of 240M, I have ordered, but not received yet the 3rd party cartridge resetter only because support is so bad and i cant afford to throw away 40M of filament or a whole spool (out of 5 cartridges 1 is unrecognized and 2 have set to 200, then the head clogged and ticked a cartridge down to 170M when in fact it had only layed down the first 2 layers of a print)
When i look at the heater bed bracket it is not even straight and had a chip of plastic out of the right hand side by the lower bearing, and the glass on the bed chipped early on so definatley had my issues. The thing is, when it works, it works great, and i mean fantastically well for the price.
If they opened up all the printers to 3rd party filament, they would sell twice as many printers in my opinon.
I have the latest firmware, but if anyone knows why he 200/240 issue is happening I would be very happy.
I have the da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3D Printer and ordered a new roll filament of PolyMax PLA (black). As recommended i have set the temperatures as 190 degrees centrigrade for the extruder, and 60 degrees centigrade for the bed.
Printing a testcube went fine, but printing parts, the filement starts to curl, and bridges are horrible as you can see in the pictures.
What am i doing wrong?
I have a Jr with well over 1000 hours of print time on it, and so far it has been working well for what I print. However lately after not using it for quite a long time, it seems to not want to recognize the filament roll after one print or when I first turn it on. I thought maybe it was the roll, so I returned it for a new one and I still have the same problem. The only way to fix it is to tell the printer to re load the filament. I checked my firmware, and even deleted and re loaded XYZ Ware on my pc. Any suggestions?
