Malyan M200 poor print quality

by philvanhoutte

Help! Print quality on my Malyan M200 is very poor lately. I had a clogged nozzle and bowden tube and was able to clean all the tubes. Then I also changed the nozzle itself and relevelled the printing bed. Now printing on 230°C and printing bed temp 70°C. But there seems to be not enough filament coming through. I think the printing bed might still be too close to the nozzle. Looking at the pics, what is your opinion/advise?

Pause at Layer to change filament

by electronron

I wanted to do a name tag with a color change at a given layer.
To do this I used the Pause feature of the MP Select Mini but I knew there had to be a better way.
The plug-in for Cura doesn't work for the MP Select Mini so you have to do it yourself but it's easy.

I found out that the G-Code M600 does the same thing as pressing pause.

Here's the procedure.
First you will want Notepad2, I got it from Source Forge (https://sourceforge.net/projects/notepad2/)
Now load your STL file into Cura and save the G-Code.
Use the Layers view to find the layer where you want to change the filiment.
Load your G-Code into Notepad2
Use Find to search for the layer in the format of LAYER:n where n it the layer number you are looking for.
Enter a blank line before the ;LAYER:n
Enter M600
Save the G-Code.
That's it, just run your print, change your filament when it pauses then un-pause.

Here's a portion of the G-Code I edited and successfully printed. As you can see I made my filament change to take place at Layer 6
G0 F3600 X63.636 Y60.808
G1 F3300 X64.353 Y61.525 E217.03716
G1 F2400 E212.53716
G0 F3600 X72.011 Y66.700 Z1.500

I hope this helps anyone wanting a simple way to pause at a given layer.

Cat -mixed success printing it

by kenwag

OK this doesn't seem too active a group, but here goes.
I successfully printed the sample cat on the SD card supplied with the printer, using some fluoro yellow PLA.
However I tried again unsuccessfully with some black and some red PLA. The cat broke away from its raft while printing each time.

Anyone else had the same issue? Seems like a design flaw, that the connection to the raft is too fragile. Only gcode is supplied, so hard to edit.

Anyone know were to get the latest compatible firmware for the malyan m200?

I’m almost ready to get a 3d printer, but I can’t find anything about firmware or find a english official Facebook group dedicated to the m200.
