Been running an all day print.  Recently fancied a fully ducted 3", truly a "big Inductrix", rather than a part arc guarded or thin ring type.

So, here is the first stage:-

3 Hours left to run!!

I only printed today to check 3.7.0, issued to correct the issue in my last post (which after several starts (not worth completing the print) seems to have solved it.

Having found a suitable lidded poly box, I started my heat box for PETG.  Before doing so, I loaded the latest "stable" issue firmware.

And immediately hit issues with the Prusa Mk3.

It was intermittently but more often than not failing its 9 point auto levelling, often at point 4, but certainly only before that point. Error message "Z levelling enforced".  Sometimes it would then calibrate Z a couple of times before it would run a print, and then only run past levelling occasionally. If it did run all way through levelling, the print was OK.

I read up on this and it was being stated by Prusa to people as faulty PINDA sensor, etc, etc, all hardware issues.

I reverted to previous stable firmware, and guess what, NO MORE error messages.

Several prints later, all OK.

Ages ago now I dragged my favourite headphones out of the drawer to find that the soft flex ear muffs had disintegrated.  :(

I have just started listening to music again after years not bothering, and caught up with a few CDs.

SO, I thought to myself, they were a bit too soft anyway, a sound seal is not wanted, but something soft enough not to be uncomfortable while not heating my ears with no heat escape.

Wonder if std "Flex" would do?

So, out came the rarely looked at till now Fusion 360 and a crude design was started.

Made a suitable first try, then the fun really started, getting the file into i3 Mk3 usable form. Save list on Fusion had NO comparator in Slic3rPE.  :banghead:

3D Print options allowed Repetier Host, OK, so jump via that.  Err, no, as RH not expecting to save files.

Eventually realised that 3D Print had to be configured to not tell Fusion anywhere to go, then after selecting the whole item by drag click, a save box appears with a .stl save option.  SO, hardly a user friendly process, if able to be done quickly once you know.


No one click way to get a .stl file out of Fusion ??  :banghead:  :banghead:

It is not worth a photo, it is basically a near hollow light thick soft washer with rounded inner and outer edges one side for comfort, and a stepped rear to fit the headphone shape.

While waiting for F1 and MotoGP, I'll do some more printing while listening to a "new" old CD in better comfort than otherwise!!

"My Oh My", the "Rain" is falling now, so I'll stay "Way Back Home" away from all the Brexit "Crazy People", and print a few parts, you know, "The Good Kind", cos I can't "Stand Still" and I certainly don't even remotely "Look Pretty". (Oh Dear, did he really do that Musical Clue?)   :shrug:    :help:    :whistling:    :D

I'm still plugging away making Micro Hovercraft for the school club (Two Thurs evening), Tiny Whoop Quad Canopies (two today), Quad Frames, and parts for "N" gauge railway like a few (quite a few!) buildings and a couple of carriage bodies.  Nothing exciting to show hence no reports.

I have been promised some rainbow filament in a few days time along with some Ruby Red.

My printer(s) are just work tools, no time for fancy stuff, especially as flying club has had to ban Multi's on ATC demand and so I'm busy reviving Heli's that are OK with ATC (Don't ask!) but not used for a long while. Oh, and FPV fitting three planes.

Not a biggie, since I can get in, but if I try to login via the top bar a login window opens with "error" in it.

If I login via the USER left hand column section it logs me in OK, but despite using "forever" it does not hold that login, and on the next visit I have to login again.  This is true even if I select other than forever and then go back to it to force it to toggle.

Forgot to say Windows 7, latest Firefox.

Yay..................  It's a keeper...............

I prefer the non-serif font default (which also meets DDA requirements).

And have now printed four more of the range.

All proving impossible so far on the Prusa as all slicers tried with it corrupt the files (or fail to correct errors).  At the same time it prints other files perfectly, so of the many tried recently, these are the only failures.

All have printed perfectly well via Repetier Host on the Fab II Mini.

Have never attempted to set up Repetier for the Prusa, partly as I don't want to risk screwing up the setup I have for the Fab II Mini which just works, reliably.
