Cubex Print issue

Cubex Print issue

Postby natholego11 » 09 Mar 2018, 10:41

Hello All,
I am fairly new to the 3d printing world, at least in owning my own, I have worked on and with projet's, objet's, and the like for many years. but I came across a pretty good deal on a brand new unopened cubex. so I have had it now for about 8 months and have been having moderate success with it. but have been really trying to get the settings tuned in.

so I ran the calibration wall and they looked... ok I guess, but shortly afterwards I ran the calibration cube, twice (and by twice I mean I ran it once, took it off and ran the exact same print again. not I ran the same model twice on the same print)
here were the results:

As you can see there is one part that consistently doesn't turn out well. so I left it for a few weeks and didn't try anything, then I printed a decently large cylinder for another project and had similar results.

Then last night I printed some dies for my Bead roller before I machine the right ones. and here is how they turned out. again there is this consistent "lack" of material in the same movement on the X and Y axis. it occurs both inside and outside the part:

Has anybody else seen this before?
any thoughts on what it might be?

Hey there and welcome

Have you done any modification on your printer?

Is everything still from stock?

I looks like you have problems with your flow. Have you tuned in your M227 and M228 settings?
These are your prime and suck setting when finishing and starting a path.

What temperatures are you printing at?

I have done a lot of modifications on mine 2 cubeX and they are printing fairly OK and constant.

The only things I have done to the printer were to add a rip-rap heater to the build platform, which I need to redo because it doesnt fully heat the build area.
and I enclosed the printer with plexiglass and added a door to the front. other than that the printer is completely stock from the factory.

as far as all the settings go please check out the file I attached it has screenshots of all the settings I have used for this print.

Hi,
looks like a M227, 228 issue.

first try to set M228S = 0

if it's better but not enough you have to reduce the other parameters M227 & 228.

Look into the old posts ( here on this forum or into the Goolge's goups, Cubex or Kisslicer group ) I've described how these parameters works.

Looking for that value, but I dont see anywhere that says M228S or M228P anywhere in Kisslicer, where is this value you are talking about?

Ok, so I tried a print with M227S at 0 that helped but not enough, so I changed M227P to 0 and that made it worse. Here are the results from that print:

The last pictures you sent show at least 2 different problems.
1 - seam problem related to M227 M228 parameters
2 - some layers are weak, you have to solve this problem before the seam problem.
Look this :
viewtopic.php?f=20&t=1262&p=3413&hilit=heat+sink#p3395
read the document into the Motor.zip file and check the diameter of your filament.
Use standard parameters like those :
M227P =0.06
M227S=0.02
M228P=0.0
M228S=0.01

After you solved the problem and your printer can print all the layers the same you can refine the seam parameters.

well, I started to do this work, and fried the motherboard. so there goes that printer.

Thanks for the help though, It was a good run!
