Weird display reading

by EinProBlemo

Hey guys.
I´ve had this problems a few times now. But mostly on large Prints.

If i unplug the display on the Motherboard and plug it in again it its normal again for a few minutes, and then it gets weird again
Does someone of you have the same Problem? let me know.

Oscilloscope I think I need one ???

by cncjim4

I know this is the wrong group but many of you are into Arduino stuff

First of all I do not know anything about an Oscilloscope, and I am a Arduino hobbyist. But I think that I should own a scope, and I don’t want to spend a boat load of money for one. The used ones I have seen are analog most do not have probes. I have also seen new small ones for $50.00 or less. What do you all recommend for my hobby I am not big into electronics just an Arduino hobbyist. I guess I just need an easy to use basic scope.

TPU through bowden not printing consistently

by DostoJoe

I've been trying to get TPU to print a specific print for about a week now with over 30 failed prints. I've been trying to print the base for a square block however the print will almost always fail at the end of the first layer when the travel moves are the longest and the extruder is stopped. The result after this will be severe under/no extrusion and the idler bearing in my extruder will stop spinning where it would go faster and slower before.

I've tried everything I can think of and I've thought I'd found the right settings to make it work 2 or 3 times but whenever I repeated the print it would fail in the exact same way. My settings are as follows:
215C hotend
50C bed
30mm/s for all settings other than travel
150mm/s travel
Retraction off

I've tried different temperatures, both higher and lower, different flow rates and different speeds. I have also tried shortening my bowden to see if that was the problem however this only seemed to work for the first print after the change.

I have a Chimera clone dual extruder and it prints perfectly with PLA.

Any help will be much appreciated, I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure it out.
