Side Purge/Prime tower: edge of the bed?

I'm printing with the Mosaic Palette+, it uses prime/transition towers to purge between color changes. There is an option in Mosaic's software that lets you define to purge blindly off the edge of the print bed; ie, it will navigate the nozzle over the edge, purge, and resume printing. I know that p...

Calibrating a new effector help please.

I put together a magball effector i downloaded https://www.thingiverse.com/make:378011 Printed out pretty well, but it's hard/I am unsure how to tell for sure how well accurate it is; I am unsure if the magballs are alligned well enough. g32 Calibrated 6 factors using 13 points, deviation before 0.0...

PSU may be faulty? Could my duet get fried?

Also since, Octoberish, the PSU fan is starts/stays at full blast/loud, until there is draw put on the PSU ...

Re: Print failure, possilbe clogging, unsure,

The PG35L should have minute play on the shaft. We don't recommend turning the shaft by hand but if you tried it should very difficult. It is possible that the gears box has wear and the PG35L needs replacing. But... it is also possible that your hotend is causing your issues. Remove the idler, hea...

Print failure, possilbe clogging, unsure,

https://i.imgur.com/HnozSzX.jpg https://imgur.com/jAdG8Ev.jpg I lost my config.g by accident a couple weeks ago, and just went right into 1.19 to start fresh, and problems came with it; not because it's 1.19, but because what ever I did in my config.g to get things to play nice was lost. A year ago...

Re: Prints not concentric.

I'm exhausted. I've gone through over a lb of filament printing hexagons. I went over every bolt in the frame. I prioritized having the towers square and even as possible, 2 days later. I've evenly tighten the belts. I've measured the carriage magballs, to have them as equal as possible. I've auto c...

Re: Prints not concentric.

I'm not entirely sure I am following you on your steps right: 1. So I print the object, then record it's dimensions? 2. Then I disconnect the effector and reconnect it side ways and print again and record the dimensions? And if so, I do this for all three sides of the effector? 3. Then I disconnect...

Re: Prints not concentric.

I recommend using a framing square and go over your printer making sure the frame is square and the towers are parallel. Then use a caliber to measure arm lengths and whether they are parallel. Verify your MagBalls (magnetic arms) or Ball Studs (ball-cup arms) are seated and their spacing is the sa...

Prints not concentric.

I'm having a heck of a time trying to get somethings to print right on my stock d300vs. I have this 200mm disk I need to print accurately and balanced, a simple machined bearing pops in the center of it, but when you spin the disk it clearly is off axis/wobbles/etc. I've done many an auto calibratio...
