Splice core starts jaming after several hours

Hi,

i’m using OctoPi with a Palette 2S Pro. Last Firmware is installed. I’m using the endurance Mode with (0,0,0) as Splice settings. The Splice comes out very nice, but after several hours of printing the core suddenly gets jammed (about 2-3 hours and nearly 40-50 splices ).

I tried the same print without the lid of the Palette and manage to get a bit further about 4-5 hours and 70-80 splices but not finished.

When i try to reduce the heating to stop the tube from (i think overheating over time) the splices are getting brittle and not useable.

Is this a good question?

Hey @markdermark, thanks for reaching out about this. Could you please try replacing your splice tube, turning endurance mode off, and then running splice tuning (start at 0,0,0 and adjust from there)? Please also make sure you are applying the splice settings to your projects in CANVAS via a material profile (step 4 of mm3d.co/splice-tuning). Lastly, we recommend using filament with a tolerance of +/- 0.03 mm or less to avoid jams. If you let me know the brand of filament you are using, I can double check this for you.

Hi @alina, thanks for the quick answer. I mainly using OWL-Filament and Geeetech as a Brand, so the +/- 0,03 mm shouldn't been an issues.

But i totally forget to put my settings into my Canvas Profile, so i try this, reslice and give it a go.

The Tube was swapped already and multiply times.

I will update after the next 2-3 prints.

Hi @alina, after updating the profiles online and reslicing, the settings worked like a charm.

Thank you very much.
