Can you acetone smooth PLA?

Can you acetone smooth PLA?

You’ll usually find that very cheap PLAs that have been blended with cheaper plastics to form a less pure PLA can sometimes be acetone smoothed. Sometimes, PLA vapour smoothing can be achieved with Ethyl Acetate or even Tetrahydrofuran (THF), but we strongly advise against using either of these chemicals.

Are there any problems with the Ender 5 Pro?

I’ve had problems with the standard feeder squashing PETG filament, especially on large parts (~7hr print) with a lot of retract/extrude cycles. Backing off that screw seems to be the magic trick. Long term, though, I’m probably going to get a BMG extruder or one of the clones.

What was the problem with the Ender 5 extrusion?

I disassembled the hot end and heat break and found a gap between the heat break and nozzle filled with melted filament. I cleaned out the clog and reassembled it.

What kind of filament to use on Ender 5?

I was told to not even bother using the white filament which came with the Ender 5 as it was very low quality. I used an orange filament from Hatchbox and, once I have learned to adjust my settings (I found it works better at 210-215 °C), it seems to be great.

Can a damaged Ender 5 be pushed through a Bowden tube?

Yes, I will post an Image of the damaged filament as well. I edited the post and added the klicking noise. See if you can push the filament manually through the bowden tube. In my case the zip ties were so tight that the tube was constricted at that point.
