    yeah figured it was aprogrammer thing.

    So my ongoing openscad issue - how to make inported stl's actually work in a full render.

    I used to load stls into tinkercad and export them back to my...

    you might be better off with an fdm printer rather than resin.

    A resin printer will almost certainly NOT print a layer as thick as 0.3mm
    It will happily print several layers at smaller layer...

    it does go up and down - technically that's moving :-)

    But I guess if you start out on i3's the rest of the industry is kind of different :-)

    So when you getting a delta ? totally non-moving...

    grey ?
    Hmm, I had a really bad roll of grey filament this year.

    2 amazing rolls and one that just killed nozzles.

    It happens.
    Not very often - actually pretty rare these days.

    But...

    honestly - a solid corexy doesn't notice the extra weight of even a hefty extruder like the bond-tech - pretty sure that's what mine uses.

    cool :-)

    At least 95% of my filament is pla - so that's sustainable and enviromentally friendly :-)

    ewww - that's not stringing - that's either a partially blocked nozzle or a partially blocked nozzle :-)
    Or dodgy filament that's blocking the nozzle.

    have you got any other pla to try - that...

    programmer code lol

    why do you lot always write it back to front ?
    Ie: the modules last and the final instructions first ?

    sounds like the voltage and stepper motor settings in the new firmware have changed.
    No clue on the bltouch, but changing firmware will usualy bugger something up :-)

    I always try and avoid it. ...

    okay well first you are using temps for abs not pla.

    pla temp settings should be 200c nozzle and 65c bed temp.

    So did you mean abs or is it just you've got the two mixed up in the settings ?

    was there a little plastic ptfe tube in the hotend when you removed the original nozzle ?
    If so it;s either not there any more or it;s been pushed up the heatblock.

    The other thing it might be,...

    okay well at least part of the problem are your retraction settings.
    you have a bowden printer - so anything under 3mm is just not going to work well - period.

    Try setting retraction 4mm and...

    'sustainable' in what way ?
    Do you mean the filament composition, the printer life span, how long a print will 'last/be sustained' in use or something else ?

    and a questionnaire where we don't...

    you say you tested the supply 'wires' - did you test the pins in the actual socket or just the wires ?

    Broken wires are really common- had a few over the years - dead fan sockets - not so much.

    try using prusa slicer (does anyone really use cura through choice ?)- and it's most likely not moisture - never had any issues with that and pla.

    If not, why is it better than looking out a window to see if it's raining ? ;-)

    Ah - excellent explanation - so the stepper acts as it's own endstop sensor - clever - odd, but clever.
    Presumably that means it can home in either direction.
