Filament holder with bearings
Hi everyone, I have designed a filament holder with bearings for my CR6. It seems to fix the large oscillations that the spool often has while printing, that I believe (with no real prove, I admit) can cause the extruder to flatten the filament, especially if it became a little brittle.
The link is here:
I hope it does something for you as well.
PS I think it fits other CR machines (CR-10 smart in example) but I cannot be sure.
RE: Mainboard versione on new Ender3 v2
@Gracy thanks, I was helping a friend and hoping he can avoid to open the printer or blindly upload FWs.
The mainboard chaos is quite difficult to sustain, makes difficult to suggest creality machines.
@admin should support in making this aspect more easily to recognize, in example just from the menu on the display.
Mainboard versione on new Ender3 v2
Which mainboard version is installed on new Ender3 v2?
RE: Continuous clogs
A different filament, not newer neither better kept, allowed the print to be finished.
However there wasn't a real clog. I just changed the filament and try to extrude the filament and there were no issues.
I believe that the filament, a geeetech silk pla, got a little brittle and the oscillations of the spool in retraction intensive parts increase the probability that the extruder ruin the filament, stopping the extrusion.
I will be doing some test, printing a new holder.
RE: Continuous clogs
@Gracy I have tried all the steps, not just once.
The weirdest thing that happens is the fact that I hear I little bang from the extruder, like a big missed step. Not sure if this is just the consequence or something in the extruder weakened overtime.
I have also tried replacing the original lock in the hotend with the one that comes with the capricorn tube, it went a little over, but I wasn't able to finish the model.
I will try with a different filament.
My CR6 keeps clogging, I have been unable to finish any pla print in weeks.
The issue seems to be associated to parts that need a fair amount of retraction. I have also installed a Capricorn tube, with no benefit.
I have also tried increasing the hotend temperature. Any suggestion?
RE: Can't get Bowden tube out of hot end.
The bowden tunbe can be tough, is your hot-end warm? I usually do this operation while checking the nozzle, with the hot-end at 200+, depending on the material I was previously using. If there is some material between the end of the tune and the nozzle would be otherwise impossible to remove the tube.
