Hello @Nomad, it looks like you are getting some lift on your print. This is likely an adhesion problem, try these things:

  1. Print with a raft
  2. Level the build plate
  3. Clean the build plate with isopropyl alcohol to remove any grease that may have come from your hands
  4. Scuff up the build plate with sandpaper or whatever you can find

Hope that helps!

You have too much air circulation and the pla is cooling at different rates. We resolved this by placing a box over the printer.

Also, the other main reason for lifting on the edges is due to the plate being too far or too close to the print head.

Take some time to calibrate the print head against the bed as often as possible.

#18   — Edited

I think JD is correct and your print head is two far from the print bed,  try to do your leveling of the bed with NO TAPE on the bed then when you are finished put the tape back on the print bed,  this makes the extruder closer by the thickness of the tape,  another thing I would use is to turn on RAFT in your program this will adjust for the uneven bed. by adding a pad of plastic under your print object that you peal off.  leaving the printed object flat on the bottom.

the tape works very good here.but the cura is a bummer.losing serverconnection.printing stops .cura dont open. way too much settings.

I never use tape years ago I switched to using glass on the print bed and some hairspray.  the printed  parts stick with no warping and release easily when the bed is cool.  I never have to enclose the printer even when using ABS,  my filiament of choice though is PET G. no smell, easy to print, very strong, solvent fused, and can be submerged into boiling water.  won't melt if you leave your robot in your car on a sunny day. try that with PLA.

@Nomad 6R    Hi I like your B9, very nice  if you are thinking of printing transparent parts I recommend using PMMA filament it is very clear. print slower and hotter, and you can finish with acetone fuming just like ABS, for a great finish.  How long did it take to print your B9?:D

@Nomad 6R    For fuming I use a metal paint can and I put paper towels around the insides held on with a couple of magnets. then wet the towels with acetone put your print in the can on a small piece of wood in the bottom and put the lid on.  I do this outside as the acetone is very strong. use a test piece to test for time check every 10 minutes. for printing I print at 60  and the extruder temp is 240 deg. for clear parts do not use any infull if you can/

Hey @Nomad I've made pieces that attach to the micro servo output gear, it's actually exactly the same as the HDD servo output gear.

You just need to grab the U-Bracket (P24) STL file. It's located inside ARC under Project-> My Robot -> Design -> "Bit library" drop down menu -> Servos -> Lever servo (any) and then "Save STL" for P24. Load the STL file up in TinkerCAD then remove/add whatever you need around the servo gear section.

#107  

Yes Nomad 6R   When I saw the printer you decided to purchase, and after seeing all the parts you make, I knew it would not be long before you have to get a larger printer.   I use a delta printer as it takes up much less room, the bed is 185mm X 185mm 370mm height it is a FlSun large delta and I have used flsun model printers for over fifteen years with no problems, the printers come as parts and you have to assemble it, but this is a good thing as you learn alot on how your printer should work.  the only thing I added was the Printer Program Simplify 3D  Which I think is the best.  Delta printer's are faster because the printer head is the only thing that moves and it is light, regular printers have to move the print surface a large heavy plate that has a lot of inertia and has to stop and start quickly making it not as accurate, and slower.  I use a glass bed and hairspray, the printer has a leveling feature .  User-inserted image

@Nomad that temperature actually seems too low in my opinion.

At the office the filament we use is 190 to 220C rated as well and we print at 220C.

If you start seeing little burnt bits in your print or the plastic looks like it's bubbling as it's printed the temperature is too high, you can then dial the temp back a bit.

PRO
Canada
#131  

Hi Nomad,

That gear in particular doesn't "wear out".

You see the inner diameter gets locked onto a motor shaft with a set screw, so it doesn't wear down. The set screw can become loose, so you may need to tighten it.

The outer diameter which grabs onto the filament can get full of filament and start slipping. They teeth are only rubbing on plastic so they won't wear down. You can clean these teeth with a toothbrush or equivalent brush.

i did clean them out and indeed there is some flinters off filament in there. ok the gear is good.and i put in a new spring in and handle . its still do tok tok tok .i also notest i could not get the filament to retrack for excample to use another color

#133   — Edited

@Nomad6R  if you are hearing a noise, like a knocking noise the print head hot end is to close to the table there is not enough space for the filament to exit if it does this for to long it will burnout the stepper motor, it weakens before it eventually dies.  make sure your first layer is not to close to the build table, those stepper motors are around 25.00 u.s. on amazon.  I keep a spare as I had one burn out when I wasn't watching. that ticking is a vibration and can loosen the feed gear, like yours did.

PRO
Belgium
#134  

hi nallycat

i hear indeed knocking sound as in the video.at this moment the nozzle is on the print.not on the table. and am printing on a glas bed. learn something .thanks for the info.

#135  

@Normad6R   When you start printing the first layer is when you can damage your stepper motor if the print nozzle is to close to the glass bed the heated filament has no room to leave the nozzle. the stepper cannot push the filament so it makes a clicking noise.  the stress on just doing the first layer can damage the extruder stepper.  when you setup the alignment and bed leveling use 2 thicknesses of paper to raise the nozzle a bit more.  if the knocking is while the print head is several layers up, then you have a partially blocked nozzle. to test this before you print raise the print head extrude about 50 mm of filament, it should drop straight down if it coils the nozzel is partially blocked, so clean it.

what i learn is this.slight this under the nozzel when bed temp is atleast 30 heat or the temp that you use. loosen the screw untill the paper gets stuck under the nozzel.then gently tighten the screws and at same time pull the paper from underneed, the nozzel.here you will find two things .eather the paper chift in small amount from underneed the nozzel, or all the way.these two are your messurment,your setting chould be between these two . when printing a raft it chould look like this. see pic.no curls,no thin lines.no pullin back filament. User-inserted image then you will see a perfect raft .

User-inserted image

you can also see the color is very clear.no warping or lifting from the print. i use the UHU stick ones.on a clean bed.110 heat extruder.30 heat bed. half speed.

hi EricEZ

indeed starting with 3d printing can be tricky. the  most importend thing is the bed leveling. what do you use now? pla.

#160  

@EricEZ  What Problems did you have printing with ABS   You have to have an enclosure for the printer as ABS warps and lifts from the print bed, I have a large delta printer I use a clear Garbage bag over the Printer, I use a glass Bed with Aussie Hair spray, also the bed has to be hot and the extruder has to be hot, I use an all metal extruder because of the heat used.  it just takes practice.  for most of my printing I use PET-G filament, as it is stronger then ABS but is much easier to print with.  you don't need an enclosure.  but you have to use retraction as it is stringy if you don't.

User-inserted image

#179  

The correct bed tempature for ABS is 110 Celcius  for  Fahrenheit people that is 220  Fahrenheit.  but it is very hot.  if PETG is used the BED temp is 60 Celcius. if the day is humid I use 65 Celcius bed temp with PETG .  if you are printing ABS you need to put a box over the printer if your printer does not have an enclosure. do not DO NOT use the fan with ABS or PETG.  With these filaments including nylon filament using a fan causes warping and seperation. because I do not use that junk PLA I have removed the Fan from my printer.

#184  

if the glass is clean lightly sand the glass with sandpaper to make a few fine scratches don't  overdue this as the part will be hard to remove, use hairspray on the glass. use the tempatures I use and put a box over the printer if you do not have a printer that has an enclosure.  some print beds can only go to 100 degree celcius it should still be fine, if it can go higher use the higher temp.because heating the bed so hot can take a long time. that is why people do not like to print with ABS     EricEZ  is your printer enclosed. you can't print large without an enclosure.

EricEZ

do you have a picture of a failled print? that can be very helpfull.

#188   — Edited

@EricEZ  A failed print usually means that object did not stick to the bed, it will release if it warps. if the bed is not prepared properly, the first layer is made to far from the bed and if the speed is  to fast, and in the case of ABS cooling is to fast.   check your print nozzle to bed spacing the bottom of the print should be as smooth as the glass it is printed on  you should not see individual print lines.  Make sure you print on glass use hairspray, check your nozzle height from bed   one sheet of printing paper. in the slicing program slow down the first 2 layers. do not use a fan, cover the printer so it is warm inside the box or enclosure before printing.   IF all of this fails I suggest you use PET G instead of ABS, PET G is stronger then ABS but is much easier to print you do not  need an enclosure. bed only needs to be 60-65 deg C  hot end temp is the hottest suggested temp listed on the filament roll.  maybe 220c you must use retraction.  as PET G is stringy and you will get lots of strings if you don't, but to much retraction  will result in nozzle clogs.  I use 3mm with my all metal hotend, you may need more retraction if you use a regular hotend.    run a test print  2 test cubes on the build plate.  there should be no strings between the cubes if there is then increase  the retraction 1mm, test again until there are no strings.     I have built two Inmoov robots using PET-G and never have a Print failure or strings.    use weldon 3 to join PET G prints it is a solvent weld and is stronger then the print itself.

try the print without the raft.  there is an error and I am not familiar with your printer screen,  not sure what I am seeing.  reset the Printer to DEFAULT SETTING you may  have entered a setting that is not correct for your printer.  I print from my Computer using a USB cable using a very good Program called Simplify3d.    If the data flow to the printer is interrupted for even a second it can lose  it's  position and start printing in the wrong position.  if you are using a Mem card in the printer to print from   format that card and reinstall the .stl file.  if you are using a usb cable remove from computer and printer  cable and switch the ends.  check to see if you have the cable near a high voltage source like it's power supply and move the cable away from this. even shielded cable can loose the data flow with an  electrical pulse. remove all the stepper motor cables one at a time and reseat on the controller card. check your ground connection.

hello nallycat:D

question ,how can i reduce some support on my 3d prints? if thats a good idea ? i al using cura 4.5.0

#229  

@Nomad 6R   I do not use cura with the program simplify3d I can put the supports where I want, or reduce the amount  of support material I don't know if  cura has this capability. but usually I just reposition the part on the build plate, as long as the object does not have an overhang of more then 45 degree it can be printed without support, the change I made to your part that I checked for you. I sent it back to you on it's short side. there was an angle to the rest  of the part but it was under 45 degree.  and could have been printed without support  one overhang at the top may have been rough at the bottom.  another way of saying you don't have to print flat.  sometimes printing from a corner for example only puts support to hold the part in that position. that may reduce the support material.

#268  

@Normad 6R   PETG is the same plastic they use to make soft drink bottles out of,   it is not rubber but printed thin it has some flexibility.  use the highest temp list on the box for extruder the bed temp use 65 deg and make sure you use retraction if you don't you will have lots of strings.  to join 2 pieces together use Weldon 3 it is a solvent bond.  use acetone to bond ABS.  I do not use PLA as it deforms at 75 deg no good for robots.   PETG is very resistant to damage.  if you think differently try to rip a coke bottle good luck with that.

hey nallycat

the torso would be a good start.need to look how all fit together. good thinking off brucexD.

#317  

@Nomad 6R   to fit the torso parts together, and as long as you are using PETG  you boil water in a long enough pan to hold the edge of the torso parts and you hold  the edge with the dove tails  into the water wait about 30 to 40 seconds and remove from the water using a hammer put the dove tails  over the slots and lightly hammer the dove tails down into the slots, you get a perfect fit.   you join the parts together using Weldon 3 by wiping the joint with a brush.  this is a very strong bond.

User-inserted image

#319  

Normad  PLA is not acrylic  but PETG is and you can glue it with any acrylic glue.  have you watched Will Huff's Droid Bartender build.  it is PETG and you can join parts together using a soldering iron.  you are wasting your time using PLA on a large robot,  get yourself some PETG and start making inmoov parts.  I would not use PLA for anything used in robotics. If you printer can be used with ABS then start using that, save the PLA for owl sculptures.

#326  

Nomad, it’s a shame you don’t use Amazon, I have Amazon Prime and get free shipping on Filament. Obviously you have to be careful on who you get it from, but I haven’t had any bad filament yet!

Regarding how many rolls of filament I used on my InMoov I don’t know as I built it over a long period of time, and still keep adding to it. I think the main costs are the Servos and electronics. It is a huge cost and a lot of time in building a InMoov. But great fun!!

If you go into the InMoov website I’m sure people have asked about how much filaments is needed to build a InMoov before and have been asked many times in the forum, you can do a search.

What kind of string do you use for the fingers?

#330  

The string used for the finger is fishing line not string  1000 test the reason is not just strength but because the larger diameter causes less wear on the joints.  if you use PETG you can use much lighter fishing line as PETG is very resistant to abasing .

i found a way to control a continious rotation from start to finich. 1 make in the Movement Panel a motion stop and ad a port and set to 90 degrees. 2 make a script write  stop() 3 second script write move(d12,"forward") ( you can use any port ) sleep(100) controlCommand("Auto Position", "AutoPositionFrameJump", "Stop")

the lower the sleep the chorter the servo will move . sleep(10) is about 1 MM the higher the sleep the longer the servo will turn. the servo stops auto when reached the sleep.

Hi Nomad. Nice idea on using atto position for a CR servo. However what if the servo moves somehow after power down? How do you really know where your position moves will end up next time you power up?

#395  

Hi Nomad, nice to see the progress. I have a few questions/suggestions as I have built an inmoov before.  -The joint you are working on and showing in your pic is to tilt the inmoov chest, not rotate it, correct? -That is one of the higher stress positions in an inmoov. I am not sure that standard size servos will cut it. I guess you will find out and be able to tell us! -The servos need to be electrically connected such that they only receive one input signal. The reason Gael set it up that way is because you will never be able to sync them correctly after power down and during power up.

Great progress so far and thanks for sharing. It is an adventure to build an inmoov.

The purpose for those bolts is to hold the collar to the waist plate. You will notice the collar holds a set screw that engages the waste rotation gear as well. This is how he will rotate at the waste.

Also about the demo video you posted. If you put a pivot point in that cross bar like the inmoov is set up I fear you will start to have problems.

the ideas comes along with the modifying off parts . this is a great test for your mind. you need patients,presistents and focus , inventing stuff  .things where i have problems with . its amazing 102 files . that big .   for excample the designer made this part with the option of put in a nut . User-inserted image

on the other hand he uses plastik bolt , that easly break and hard to print . so i made from his part a bolt holder .

User-inserted image

bolt in on one side and a nut the other .perfect for bolt 3d parts together . 3MM bolt&nut .

BTW the riffle actully works .except no bullets flying out . but you  can smile the riffle and click . eject bullets . load magazine.

thanks

Speaker in chest - works well,

If you want a robot voice - audacity is what I used, it's free

Highlight the whole audio, then apply form effects, Vocoder at the very bottom of the effects, here are te settings:
