Hi, I’ve been “printing” (mucking about) with a CreatBot DM 02 printer for about a year. The opportunity came up to buy a used Mankati XT.
I realise that one is a clone of the other but I simply cannot get the Mankati to print anything!
I’m using the Mankati software,
PLA, ABS, PETG
- I cannot get consistent flow, 50 to 60mm of bead on the bed, then nothing, for about 100mm, a few dribbles then a another 50 or so mm.
- The extruder keeps trying to push the filament, but it seems the filament cannot get out the nozzle fast enough, so the extruder slips. Tried the extruder at 98, 95, & 90%, still slips and chews the filament
- PETG is a nightmare, whatever I do, the nozzle gets more than goes on the bed. 215-250°C, bed 45 -80°C, fan ON, fan On after 2m, print speed 10 – 50mm/s, PVA, Kapton, Blue tape
- PLA & ABS, same range of settings, still NBG.
I know this is an old printer but has anyone got any ideas, help, tips, spare ABS/PLA config files they could share?
