    I've found I run into a stuck filament in my Sigma R16 with Capricorn tubing. It's mostly with the cheap spools I bought from Craigslist, which doesn't surprise me in the least. I may have solved the...

    @starplanet, it is a bowden tube printer, so it's rather risky if you go that route with the intention of printing flexible filament. You could probably buy a remote direct drive system and adapt it...

    I wonder if the OBC filament I used is polypropylene based, as the documentation specified printing on packing tape, which worked fine.

    TPU filament may be of use to your objective. It's very flexible right off the spool and usually requires a direct drive printer (genuine Prusa i3 - good choice) although I've printed with my bowden...

    Based on your description, your problem may not be the design. If your filament is running cooler than optimum, the layers will be weak enough to create a failure. Consider to increase the nozzle...

    @printbus, I like to use the term assignment as a description in place of variable, to reduce the confusion new users might experience. Of course, the syntax appears to be the same, but as you...

    I didn't look at the nozzle temps in the g-code and I didn't examine it to every single entry. The "directives" in the g-code aren't telling the machine to move outward for the bulge. Even a change...

    The g-code looks good, which points to a hardware problem. Are you able to observe the nozzle temperature when it reaches the level of the bulge?

    I'm not a g-whiz g-code guy, but if you can attach the g-code file, I'll take a look at it to see if there's something strange in the slicer output. Consider also to use another slicer (PrusaSlicer...

    You're pretty close in your description. The STL file becomes a BREP file in order for F360 to edit it. The border does become a cutter, in a manner of speaking.

    I'd forgotten about Tinkercad, although a friend uses it exclusively. I just signed in and found that download and export (.obj, .stl) work, as does import. Something amiss?
