Ender 3 producing furry print.

by Gregmac

I'm a relative newbie to this game and am experiencing an issue wherein my print is furry in some areas. I've tried altering nozzle temp but no joy. I do not understand very much about gcode etc and use it only when bed levelling with a bltouch. My machines has twin screws on the axis and a BLTouch otherwise it's pretty standard. Hopefully the video will demo what the problem is and someody will be able to help me prevent it in future prints.

FILAMENT RUNOUT FIRMWARE CAUSES HEAT ERROR E1

by 3d1947

TRYING TO ADD FILAMENT SENSOR

I have an ENDER 3 with an upgraded V4.2.7 mother board, and a CR Touch. Everything works fine.

I am attempting to add a filament runout. When I upgrade the firmware for filament the nozzle heat errors out with E1. Example, I set temp to 260C, the heat runs up quickly and steadily until approximately 250C, then stops and stays at 250C until the error occurs and the printer is stopped. This happens at all temperatures, the heating stops ~ 10C below the requested temp, and stays there until errror.

I have tried 3 different runout sensors and their cables, and 3 different motherboards. This occurs whether or not the sensor is connected, whether or not the sensor is turned on on the screen.

When I flash a firmware that does not include runout, everything is fine.

I have spent quite a bit of time with emails to Creality support, they have been unable to help.

I think this has to be firmware.

I can't be the only Ender3 that has installed filament runout. Has anybody had this problem with maybe a solution?

Thank you for any help,

Mike

filament recycling

by serenm

Hi everyone, I was wondering if there is a company in the UK that recycles filament scraps to make new filament. I don't want to buy one of the machines and I don't think I could make my own. Thanks in advance.

Project won't stick to plate

by MakerBotMakerBotMaker

hello. I own a Ender 3 Neo and my project won't print. It starts out fine but about 1/4 through it stops sticking and goes in circles and screws the whole thing up. It is not a problem with the file, as I tried three different ones. I manually leveled the printer plate 3 times around and did a auto level and it still doesn't work. any advice? what I'm really confused on why it works perfectly fine for the first 1/4...
