Interesting, I wonder if the heatbreak was not inserted enough?  2 mm is a large amount of shortage.

RE: Unofficial Prusa Mini Wait Thread

@matt-14

I did a few cold pulls seem to make no difference so I replaced the PTFE tube with another one, I actually purchased some Capricorn tubing before I got the printer incase this was needed. After reading all the stories on the forum I figured lets do that incase and it turned out that was a good idea. I also made sure in one of my first few prints was a PTFE cutting jig 😀  So cut a new tube after installing that it seems to be back to normal.

 

The old PFTE tube I pulled out looks identical to the spare one provided by Prusa it was not shorter or damaged so Im not 100% that was the problem but we shall see. Going back to my printing again today.

Im disappointed for sure because my Monoprice printer has been solid for over one year and not needed anything doing to it apart from grease the rods. I really wanted the Prusa so I can leave it alone with trouble free printing but I guess that will not be the case. I only used about half a roll of filament on this days old machine before it went wrong. Really hope Prusa refine this so its better in the future at least we should be able to get the upgrade kit from them.

The first time I tried unloading filament in my new Mini+, the filament got stuck in the PTFE tubing between the filament sensor and the extruder.  There was a blob on the end of it up inside the block.  I managed get it out and it was working fine last night, but that was pretty frustrating.

I'm otherwise happy with it so far.  It's quiet, it's fast, the interface is cool, and it prints at least as well as my Mk3S.

Just had the initial email saying mine has been packaged and a shipping number has been generated, which is 5+ days early, unless it won't actually move until the 8th.

Satin sheet works like a charm. So far ive had issues getting the textured to work, but still need more time to confirm user error XD.

Tip for assembly, make double sure the pressed in nuts are pushed in all the way. Disassembling to push them in more can be frustrating.

Also heres my current testing setup 😀

Hi all,

now the first part of the assembly video, stay tuned ;):

PS: It's in 4x Speed, if you want to see more details, just set the player to 0,25x Speed.

It took me a while to figure out the textured sheet as well, the Z height is farther down than I expected.  There is a big difference in thickness between the smooth and textured.  For the 'perfect' first layer with the smooth sheet the setting is -1.005 (for my Mini+, every machine is different) but with the textured sheet it is -1.320. It doesn't directly correspond to the actual measured difference between the two sheets.  Instead I use the 60mmx60mm model in the prints library and then use a micrometer to make sure I am as close to 0.20mm thick as possible.  I also run it again when I change material type and tweak Z as needed to nail 0.20mm.

Every sheet is different and not just between textured and smooth.
