nopick (love the seinfeld reference if thats where its from). I have only printed a couple parts (small brackets, fan shroud) and i didnt notice it happening.
The first time it happened was on like layer 150, not something that would show up in 200mm of filament.
Gordon, I know the fan is blowing on the heater block and i know this causes issues, and ive since dropped the fan speed way down (i think 30%). that blower fan is really powerful (kudos for putting a big boy on there).
It could EASILY be that. However if it was cooling the heater block too much and causing it to drop temp, why would the extruder drop 30 degrees and then stay there? it stayed there for an hour or two before i caught it. Just seems strange.
I am now looking for a decent fan for the 1.5xt+ that works with the E3D hotend. The files I found are of a fan shroud that is NOT stock on the max 1.5xt+. I can edit it, but i cant find the STL (or the cad file would be better) for the stock 1.5xt+ fan shroud.
