Re: Slicer limitations

Without sufficient information, it's difficult to properly respond. You could include the STL, screenshots, slicer profiles etc. All that would help. You could also have a look to see if other slicers handle the model differently, which would give a clue as to whether the problem is with your model ...

Re: When repairing the hot end assembly...

Blue leads 12 volts Red leads 24 volts Joan No. Blue - 30 Watts and red = 40 Watts in both 12V and 24V. I didn't find anything to determine the voltage in the E3D shop, so it may be down to measuring the resistance :( Peter EDIT: Some PR printers were shipped with 30W heaters and later ones with 40...

Re: slic3r supports fail with curved bridge.

Simplest thing to do is to use MeshMixer to add the support you need and then slice without support in Slic3r.

Re: Cheaper (possibly slower) shipping?

Peter, We are in total agreement Not sure about that. Cheaper = slower and less reliable. Slower = more time in transit = more time for damage to occur = less customer satisfaction = higher costs for Prusa Research because the customer wanted to "cheap out". Only my experience of courier services.....

Re: Q: Printing actual different materials using MMU

An idea would be to change the temperature at the begining of the changing process if it has to increase, and at the end if it has to decrease. Actually, an ideal situation is to change the temps several times during unload and load. What you need to do is to unload the filament with a clean tip wh...

Re: New video on the MMU

Why doesn't it wipe into the diamond part of the infill too? The purge block could be shrunk even further that way right? You could even have the software balance out the purge in the diamonds evenly so that the parts center of mass is not effected. Rather than asking why it doesn't do something, ...

Re: Q: Printing actual different materials using MMU

But of course you have to set the new temperature as soon as the filament left from the extruder No, that's not correct. Consider this: You are printing with a filament at 240 degrees; the new filament requires 200 degrees, but there is still about 40 mm^3 of old filament remaining in the nozzle. I...

Re: New MK2S different hotend?

Heater cartridge wire colour denotes approximate power, where blue = 30W and red = 40W.

Re: PINDA probe LED flickers then goes off with ABS

Raise Z to 100mm. Heat the bed to 100 degrees and go to the "Show End Stops" menu option Put something metal (coin) under the probe; you should see both the probe light and LDC switch states for "Z". Then do the same close to the bed, near the point where calibration fails (usually the right side). ...

Re: I inherited a problem :D

Yeah, still looks like a cable/connector issue. Or it could be the small printed black plastic cover at the bottom of the lead screw too tight.
