No, really, has anyone tried the Matter Hackers glow in the dark ABS filament with a stock DaVinci 1.0 extruder? I understand that hardened extruder may be recommended because GITD is abrasive. Opinions?

I am just starting to experiment with 3rd party filament, and GITD is a favorite thing of mine.

Da Vinci 1.0A - PLA Curling

by DaVinciFun

Hey gang. I've been trying to print this spiral staircase on my Da Vinci 1.0A and I'm not having success. I recently installed 2 blowerfans that really do a great job of cooling but I still get curling by the 6th step. I tried printing two (2) at once and I get same results. I've seen pics of people printing it flawlessly in place with no supports. So it must be my settings.

Running on Repetier Host - Slic3r
PLA 1.75mm @ 200c. Purple glue on blue tape. No bed heat.
two (2) 12v blower fans blowing thru a fan duct.

Would someone provide a tip or solution to my issue? Thanks yall!

*Also, I tried reducing the extrusion multiplier (amount of plastic) to 0.9 thinking i was extruding to much but this didn't help.


**The recent 4 photos are of my fan duct.

E3D Thermistor issue

by checkplus

I did the E3D mod with a DaVinci 1.0 running Repetier firmware, and I'm having some trouble getting reasonable Thermistor values. I changed the tempsensor type to 8 in the firmware, and am able to sense temperature change through the connection, but it reads 80 at room temperature and comes back with a decoupled error around 170. I might just be picking the wrong setting, but everywhere I've checked has redoubled my confidence that my setting should be 8.

I have the cartridge thermistor with the short blue wires coming out, but I'm reading 130K Ohms across the thermistor when I would expect to be getting very close to 100k. I could have gotten a bad thermistor, and I have another one coming in a few days, but that really seems too easy. If I pull my thermistor out of the board and restart everything, I still get a temperature of 80. No matter what I disconnect, I always get 80-ish at room temperature from just the wires somehow instead of DEF which is what I would expect. Has anyone had this problem when putting in an E3D?
