Hello Everyone, I purchased a R1+ refurbed a couple months ago. Got around to using it recently. Seem to be having a couple issues with the machine and printing. 1) Manual XYZ control in MatterControl either works, or it doesn't and theres no consistency in its operation. It may operate an axis in one direction but not in the other. May state values in one direction of movement but the axis does not move. Requires closing the program and starting it again. (Seems the concensus here is that MC is terrible.) Is this normal behavior? 2) Told machine to print a calibration circle. Noticed stringing issues/oozing. Left filament in the nine auto level points. Ran stock at 210c/50c medimum quality but had a skirt with four loops for adhesion. Print looked okay besides the stringing of PLA filament and a zit. I noticed in the software, the temperature control readings seem to swing from values of -3 degrees below target to +5 degrees above. In order to combat the stringing issue I changed the extruder target temperature to 205c which swings down to 202 and up to 209/210. At this point I tried to see how well it could create a 20mm XYZ calibration cube and after initially heating the extruder nozzle to the 205c target temperature the oozing settled down and im getting less to none in the nine level points. Printed the cube out, flat surfaced sides look fine but the X and Y sides have problems. Y side as it reaches the split for the arms of the Y looks recessed and melted. Followed by arching for a couple layers on the top of the right. Similar on the X side as well. Decided today to try again and see if there was consistency in the output results, first attempt my printer apparently was not homed properly. It tried to start printing above the bed. Made sure EEPROM was reset, even though nothing should have touched its values. Shut the machine completely off, also took the time to extend the wires on a z-stop as it appears it wasn't exposed with enough slack and one of the connectors was bent. Printing of the second calibration cube yielded repeatable results with the same imperfections on both the X and Y sides of the calibration cube. Any ideas on this issue? Spoiler: Images 3) Thought I might try to print out some feet risers to raise the machine up. Set quality to high, preheat bed and extruder. Watched it put down some layers. After awhile I noticed that it didn't seem like it was moving the spool at all. Canceled the print and told MC to extrude filament, nothing. Tried again, nothing. Released the tension on the PLA and pushed down on the filament. Made sure extruder was up to temp and a smoking glob of PLA oozed out of the hot end. Did my nozzle clog or is it likely the PLA came loose inside and it was not able to push it through the extruder? 4) The corrugated tubing that runs from underneath machine, up the right side and then down to the assembly that protects all the wires. Is it supposed to be attached to the case of the machine somewhere? The entire thing is free to move anywhere it wants, which seems to cause catching on the PLA as it feeds down from the top. It also has a habit of sandwiching itself between the z axis rods. Once these quirks are worked out I do have an enclosure, xxl lcd and an e3d v6 hotend waiting inside a box but don't want to install those until I can eliminate possible existing hardware issues. Considered swapping out the firmware as ive been following those threads, think I would want to stick to auto bed leveling if I did. Have a few other slicers already installed if I have to dump MC. Any help would be appreciated.
