I'll try that.. The filament is stuck in the extruder, I can't pull it out, and I can't retract it out. I'll let it heat up a little higher and stay at temp for a bit to see that helps.

The way that I've unclogged the hotend is to:

-lift the X axis up about midway to give yourself room to work
-let the hotend cool
-cut the filament coming out of the top of the extruder from the rest of the spool
-unscrew the nozzle very slightly from the brass heat block
-release the tension on the filament still in the extruder
-continue to keep the tension off the filament as you untwist the nozzle completely out of the brass heat block, with the extra filament still attached.
-pull the nozzle down away from the heatblock, with the extra filament still attached in the nozzle
-heat the tip and sides of the nozzle (I would usually remove the tip of a soldering iron, heat the iron up, and put the cone tip of the nozzle into where the soldering iron tip was)
-once it has been heated thoroughly, pull the jammed filament out of nozzle by the extra filament while holding the nozzle with a pair of pliers or a wrench

Try not to break the extra filament off, or pull too much on the extra filament until the nozzle is out and heated. This will work only if the filament is not also stuck in the throat of the hotend, and as long as you still have the extra filament to pull on once you have the nozzle off the heat block.

I just took it the hotend apart... Filament stuck in the top of the throat, right at the top before it get's to the PTFE tube inside of it... I'm going to use a heat gun and try to get it out, but I'm also about to jump on eBay and order another one in case this doesn't work...

So I got the clog cleaned and everything put back together, but now I can't extrude any filament. I can load it, and it will ooze out of the nozzle, but it won't push any through. Any thoughts?

My second print was not too bad but still could use some improvement... some sagging on areas where there is overhanging and some little bumps in the inner walls, the hardware need some fine tuning on the Y and X steeper voltages (Y could use some more juice!).



I think that this fan support should work fine until I give the print a second chance... maybe enabling the support material setting on Slic3r and adding the fan to the combination I can avoid sagging of layers where there is overhanging (I learn that from my M3D and most of my small prints are fine)

I figured out why I can't feed any filament, but I'm not sure how to fix it. When I try to feed it through, it retracts, and when I retract it feeds through. I checked my settings and they all look to be correct. Any help is greatly appreciated (as has been all the help up to this point!) I honestly don't know where I'd be without y'all!!

So I am getting beyond frustrated at this point. I have had several successful prints and a lot of fun with my printer but have continued issues with the repetier software. Sometimes it crashes when slicing actually almost always then. Sometimes in the middle of a print. Does anyone use any different software? I am very ready to try something different. Unless some one else knows a solution to this.

It may be the version that you are using since some of the newer versions seem abit bugged. I use version 1.0.6, and it does not give me much of a problem. The only real problem with it is that it commonly has connection issues mid print, but that may just be the nature of printing via usb. You could try using cura alone without the host to see if you still have the problems. Also, if you are having connection issues mid print, I would highly suggest getting a lcd controller with sd card reader so that you can print without being connected via usb.

My Repetier is totally unreliable when you give it a very large project to slice. For $12 plus shipping you can put, like Mach said, an LCD screen on your printer and have no more worries about connection problems.

Actually I have found that my issues are with Slic3r. If I slice with Cura, I have no issues. I do have the LCD but have never hooked it up. But even with that I would still have the issues. Sometimes with Slic3R it will shutdown or freeze the PC immediately after slicing. But with Cura I ran the printer for a 4hour print last night and had no issues. But now running Cura for some reason I am having real issues with bed adhesion. Even when running a 5mm brim. I have always used glue sticks when printing ABS and never had a problem. I tried hairspray and had ZERO success. maybe I should try painters tape or something like that.

Has anyone ever tried printing nylon? I am looking for more durability out of my parts since most of them are going to be really abused, mainly printing RC parts. Has any one tried it or printing TPU? I also was looking at different hot ends. I hear that there are much better ones out there that what this uses. I would also really like trying a dual head so I can run multiple colors, but don't think I am ready for that yet.

Thank you so much! That did the trick. I thought I had tried that before, but I think it was one of the axis motors that I flipped... I have my first test cube printing as we speak! I can already tell that it's not a great print, but for my first one after all the issues that I've had, I'll gladly take it!

More importantly.. learning lesson for everyone. As you find things that are wrong (at least for me, personally) it makes you dig into things like wiring and firmware.
For things like backwards movement on stepper motors.. you have two moves. One is invert them in firmware, or two, invert the plug. Honestly, mess around with everything, it'll help you learn. The info for this particular issue is in this thread but yeah, hard to find at this point

Just don't go inverting end stop plugs, stepper driver themselves, etc smiling smiley Think you've read enough warnings on them...

Thanks! I printed my test cube, but the top is kind of caved in, the cross support didn't print very well and started sagging about halfway through it. I then tried to print a sphere and did not get a good base, but the rest printed almost perfectly. I also printed a Batman Batarang, which was my longest print without changing any settings from the first two and it turned out pretty well, it just has some issues along the edges.

I can't wait to get home now so that I can make a few adjustments and get some more prints in!

Hihihi... my first print was like that... I set the infill to 25% and im going to add a 40mm fan to the extruder in order to cool down the PLA faster at the edges
Re: Folger Tech 2020 i3 Printer Kit (Official Thread)
November 02, 2015 12:26PM
I thought about adding a fan, just have to get one first. I'll have to change the infill and see how that helps.

Guys I really need help. First time builder, half way into building the printer BUT I CANNOT find a way to tighten the m3 nyloc nuts!

What tool should I use? Please be precise. Pliers? Ive been trying really hard with pliers but they never get screwed in by me.

How did you guys tighten the nut here?
[drive.google.com]

And how did you tighten the nut here?
[drive.google.com]
Also for this picture, is it possible to just use duct tape to secure the center 3d printer part? Or will it heat up too much and is dangerous.

Thanks guys!

Yea, the Nylock nut for the front pulley assembly is tough to get to. I just had to remove the corner brackets from the frame in order to make it easier to reach.

For all the Nylock nuts, I just used a small channel lock pliers that I had and it worked fine for most. There might be a better way, but without the right wrench or socket then you'll just have to improvise with whatever gives you the best grip on the nut.

I am so excited, since I just finished my build and first calibration cube. After reading though a lot of threads I was expecting a much worse failure than it came out. With 10% infill the top started to sag and the last corner was torn away as the print finished. Either way, I'm proud of how it turned out so I wanted to come here and share it. Thanks to Folgertech for making such a great kit. I've already recommended to a friend.

On a side note, after tuning the stepper drivers, they have a high pitch squeal just after moving. Adjusting the voltage changed the pitch and intensity, but I couldn't get it to go completely away for the X and Z axis. Has anyone else run into this that has any tips to silence them? Thanks!

Those are all a pain but I just used a pliers. I should get a 3mm socket or box wrench but I just keep using a pliers because I have it near the printer.

I just used a pair pliers and those were just small enough to fit into the small space. If you don't have a pair of those, you could try jamming something hard between both sides of the nut and bracket to keep it in place as you tighten the screw. As for using duck tape for securing the bed's belt holder, that not a option since the belt holder needs to stay precisely in place during printing or the positioning off the bed will get thrown off, ruining the print.

The motors will whine after you have activated them, and will continue to whine for about 20-30 seconds until the firmware deactivates them. This is normal. I believe you can make the firmware turn them off when not being used by setting all defines to true around line 315 in confg.h

// Disables axis when it's not being used.
#define DISABLE_X false
#define DISABLE_Y false
#define DISABLE_Z false
#define DISABLE_E false // For all extruders
#define DISABLE_INACTIVE_EXTRUDER true //disable only inactive extruders and keep active extruder enabled

I think that it's just part of the mechanics behind the inner working of steepers, if I understand correctly the electromagnets at the stator are engage while the steeper is on stop position to avoid it to move freely, what you are hearing it's just the vibration of the steeper pulling and pushing constantly while it's being feed with a pulsing voltage from the driver, if you change the voltage you change the vibration pattern.

My steepers buzz too when they are active, but I can't barely hear them when the printer is moving and usually after the print it's finish and the extruder is send to the center of the axis they get powered off and the noise stops...

What is everyone using for good bed adhesion? I was having good luck with glue until I switched slicer programs. Now I am having basically none. Parts are printing GREAT but are warping on the bottom side. Would I be better off using tape? I see some people say that works well.

I use glue stick with cura slicer. Have you made sure that the slicer program is not starting the print too high off of the bed? That is the only reason that i can see that changing the slicer would change the adhesion.

Hey THERIPPA,
I just got my lead screws in . Not sure what I should use for a starting number in the firmware, can you help me?
Think its what 8mm 4 start? What is the lead screw pitch? 1.25??
If so I should be plugging in around 2560.00 in the firmware for that axis as a starting point? or is the pitch on that lead screw different then 1.25?

Also, for the auto leveling with the proximity sensor... does anyone have a extruder mount that includes the holder for the proximity sensor? Just got mine in.

If so I should be plugging in around 2560.00 in the firmware for that axis as a starting point? or is the pitch on that lead screw different then 1.25?


Stop screaming at me! Change 4000 to 400...

#define DEFAULT_AXIS_STEPS_PER_UNIT {80,80,400,98}

THANK YOU!!!!!! LOL
