I’m about to chuck this machine out the window. Seriously.
I haven’t used the moai in a while, but I have a job that calls for the highest quality. Heck, since it has been some time, I figured I would update to the latest cura as well. I had been running 3.4.whatever for the longest time. I deleted that and got the new cura installed.
Not even sure if that’s the problem, but the new cura, 3.6, might not be ready for moai yet. So I uninstalled that, and then installed 3.5.1, which the internet claims is definitely ready, and they have profiles for it. I did go through and find the couple hidden folders that you are supposed to remove as well before I installed this version.
Installed the new profiles, and modified one to support my resin…basically just changing the speed and the infill %. This has always worked well in 3.4.
Again, not even sure if any of this is even related to the problem…just mentioning it because its something I changed recently. Also, I added supports to my models using chitubox this time, instead of the old ChiTu DLP slicer, which had been my go-to for supports.
I have been testing this for about 3 days, and keep getting crap results. Today, I happened to look at the machine, and saw that it just wasn’t doing any sort of peel at all between layers. I mean, that explains the crap, but why isn’t it peeling?
The machine does do the peel function when you first turn it on, so it is capable of doing it.
Is there something I need to change in the new Cura to get it to generate proper gcode? I changed the printer to Moai, and am using the new profiles.
I had this happen once before, and it seems like it resolved by getting a different sd card reader to save my files onto the sd card with. I’m still using that same reader, though. Formatting the card didn’t make a difference either. I don’t know what to do next.
Help me Obi Wan Community…you’re my only hope!!
