RepRap is humanity's first general-purpose self-replicating manufacturing machine. It is an open-source project that focuses on the creation and development of 3D printers that can print (some of) their own parts.

I need some help. I am getting this lumps that show up. It looks like I'm printing great until the effector needs to start retracting and moving to a different spot. I am printing with PETG at 240deg C, E3D Titan Aero extruder, Anet A8.
Has anyone had any success SLSing hotends? I've always wanted to try and I designed myself a small little hotend. I'm planning on ordering it off All3DP hotend service and I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience and would be willing to share their knowledge.
I've included the cad of my design
I have an issue with temperatures, my printer does not "obey" the temperatures set in the slic3r for neither the nozzle nor the bed. No matter how I change the settings, it always goes to 230°C and 65°C. I think it has something to do with the Marlin firmware, however, I don't know how to change it. I used the "M303 E0 S230 C8" and "M303 E-1 S90 C8" commands on g-code, to calibrate the PID, maybe it has something to do with it.
Also, sorry for any grammar mistakes, english is not my first language :/
I'm having issues with my e3D v6 old style heater block with this thermistor: https://gulfcoast-robotics.com/products/2017-version-hex-screw-in-m3-ntc3950-100k-thermistor-3d-printer-extruder-hotend
when it claims to be at 200 Celsius, it is read to be at ~160-170 on a multimeter thermistor. In firmware, I ran PID autotune, changed temp sensor to Marlin 11, and have raised the max temp to 300 like the thermistor can reach. How can I solve this?
