Re: Thermocoupler reading odd - CTC sailfish

would that interfere with the reading of the sensor?

Should think so because its the thing heating do if that's not right the thermo coupler reading could be off I guess

But if you have got it working I would just cary on using it as is until it dose it again but hopefully it wont

Good luck lol

Re: Thermocoupler reading odd - CTC sailfish

Have you tested the heating element or extruder to see if they are working properly

Re: new printer issues!

It could be that if you are printing on glass that the glass is not clean I don't know if it works but I have hear hair spray on the bed can help it stick also is the bed heated and if it is, is it at the right temperature

Re: Newbie question.

New to it all to I'm going to use sd cards as I don't want to have Moore cables going to my pc and it is pretty much the only way I can have the printer in a different room to my pc

Yes it is a bit quite isn't it :roll:

Currently I have the print head 0.6mm away from the bed is this the right distance or do you guys gave any ideas of what I should or shouldn't have it se...
