PLA - I’m doing something wrong?

by Milql


I’m printing flat plate and normally I would expect to see lines of material from layer on the top, but in my case I can see also later under. On the end I’m getting strange looking pattern.
I’m using i3 Mega s with newest original firmware and replaced drivers to TC2209. Slicing I’m doing in Cura.

I don’t know it this should look like this or I have some hardware issues or wrong settings.

Please help to understand if this is correct by checking files from the attachment.

Hotend only heats up to 135ºC-140ºC

by lurosset

Something is going on with my printer's hotend.

I just finished changing my i3 Mega's PTFE tube and brass nozzle, reassembled it, always taking care not to damage the heating element wires.
Then I check the temp and it was cooling down, despite the set temperature being high (210º). I turned it off, let it cool down and turned it back on. I set it again to 210ºC and it only reaches about 135ºC-140ºC, not going over it.
So I change the heating element and thermistor for fresh new ones and the same behavior takes place: not heating up beyond 140ºC.

Any ideas on why this is happening or how to fix it? I checked the connectors and they all seem to be fine. Cooling fans run normally as well.

i3 MEga S shows wrong time to complete, ideas?

by HeliTom

I have a brand new Anycubic i3 Mega S. I have been working with Anycubic support for the past several weeks. The issue is simple. During the print process, the elapsed time and percent complete displayed on the screen are good. When the print completes, a display pops up that says it is done and the elapsed time is displayed. The problem is that the elapsed time is anywhere from 6x to 10x off.
So a print that takes 1 hour 15 min, will show taking 13H 13M. (see attached file)
they have sent me new firmware that I have loaded, but it did not fix the problem.
Now they want me to use a Mini SD card and load new firmware into the display board. I have decades of software programming experience and an very skeptical that the issue is there.

Does anyone else have this issue?
