    The zebra striped portions of the meshmixer display are reversed normals. That means that the panels are facing inward. STL files have surfaces which are inside and outside and reversed normals will...

    When I've seen problems of this nature, it can be attributed to just being outside the print volume. Reduce the size just a small amount and you may discover the print option returns. It seems like...

    All this time, I was searching for a model related problem, but now I believe that you are describing a software menu access problem.

    In what screen shot does the missing panel not appear? I'm...

    It's possible you have insufficient temperature on the hot end. The too-cold filament is binding, causing a delay until the heater dumps more energy into the filament. You've not stated that you have...

    I'm not sure what you mean by "top panel just disappeared." A screen shot may be helpful for that reference.

    Meshmixer determined four flaws on the head and repaired them. Simplify3D also...

    I watched a video recently about using UV curing adhesive to attach copper foil to glass. The creator warned against using alcohol or acetone on the copper, as any liquid of that type that reached...

    As with Arsoy's post and my question, how does this resolve the non-manifold surface problem and other non-printable features of the original file? The model is loaded with individual components that...

    Consider to either attach your STL files to the message for others to analyze or to use a model test/repair site such as Netfabb Online Repair service to determine if there are flaws in the model....

    The z-axis movement probably depends on gravity to reduce/remove backlash, which you've noted is in effect. The movement "lag" you've measured indicates that the z motor is dropping the nozzle lower...

    A wonderfully fuzzy image with unreadable dimensions of what appears to be a rotating cam with a sharp profile is not a gear, but I suppose it's a start in the right direction. I'm going to bow out...

    @SDAJosh, I think curious aardvark's comment is directed at me. Too many reasons to enumerate here why the dinosaur is still in the box.

    I was able to load the STL file into PrusaSlicer2 and after adjusting tons of settings, specifically aimed at the 0.1 mm nozzle, could get a linear print. Having to go through those gyrations made me...

    I've configured my slicer for a 0.1 mm nozzle with 0.050 mm layer height, which is outside my printer's capacity, but I won't be printing it (grin). Typically one would want a layer height of no more...

    Something this small is especially challenging to print when the cross section in the horizontal plane is so tiny. By breaking apart the design and printing flat, the layer lines allow fewer...

    It seems that Nikolas wants to stop the heat before the print is done. Using PEI, which I agree, is a great coating, would most certainly release the build prematurely.
