1 week 4 days ago - Commented on Have large 3D Printer that stops extruding and still moves

With prints that large, you should be able to use Simplify3D to generate G-Code to start printing at the layer where the problem occurred.  Then it would be a matter of figuring out which line of G-Code to actually resume (you don't want it to re-print any existing lines, only pick up where it left off). 

 

Other than that, yeah, you'll need to hook up a sort of filament sensor to the pusher and wire that into a P-Stop on your controller.

You wouldn't happen to be using Inland PLA, would you?  They recently changed their formula/manufacturer and needs to be printed hotter (about 10 degrees hotter) than before.

 

p.s. Only for some of their PLA :-)  I had the experience with their Grey 1.75mm PLA.

Thanks, yes, I see my hub is there again.  Now to get back to my order.  Sure would like a post-mortem on what happened.

Update: Just received a message from support, they're working on it:

This is the part that worries me:

It lets me upload a part, but not select a material.  I hope someone is aware of the issue.  I tried calling the US number, but customer support just says to email them, then hangs up.

I certainly hope it's just a temporary issue.  Have either of you opted into the "instant order" option?  I hope this isn't a strong-arm tactic to force us into it.

It appears someone deleted my hub without any notice whatsoever.  I have no access to any of my previous orders, and I'm unable to communicate with a customer that just placed a new order.   Has anyone else had this problem?

If you're looking for very small holes, your only chance would be to do it in resin.  The feature size (x/y resolution) on my resin printer is 0.047mm, however, getting a clear hole through a part that small is next to impossible.  I've printed some pretty tiny parts that required holes on the order of 0.6-0.8mm and that took considerable time to tweak layer cure times and then post-processing the pieces (alcohol wash to clear out left-over resin in the holes, etc).

 

I'm curious about what kind of part you have that needs holes that small.
