I'm not familiar with the amazon pla, but the 101 needs a lot of experimentation to get the settings for different types of pla right.

Trouble shooting / Re: Printing problem
Last post by 101nico -
Hey guys, I know the problem, because I had the same in my first week with my 101hero. The Problem were the metal spears (guide rails) that hold the extrude. I used WD40 to make it more smooth and it works fine since this little change.
Maybe you can try this small test.

best wishes...

YOU are awesome!  Nice work all the way around.

Are you saying the 101hero uses the bi-polar hack on these little stepper motors?  That makes sense now...

Have the stl files for the vertical towers been done yet?   I'd love to do the mods and still preserve the original parts.
 
Also, can you sell me the metal top and bottom?

101Hero / Re: My 101 hero stopped reading my sd card
Last post by sbucher -
I tried various things.When I put the card in the slot it's spring loaded and locks when you push in it releases. I think that's how it should work and it always has.
It stopped working in the print process,I'm just not sure what else to try. The socket seemed tight on the board. Does anyone know where to get a replacement sd reader that has the proper socket?
