OK. Looking for help on some settings for a Maker Select v2 in the Prusa version of Slic3r.

I am having issues with bridging. Anybody have anything that could help? I am going at 60mm/s for my speed and my bridging speed.

I will post pictures once I take them.....

I have no help but how far are you trying to span? Why no support?

Seriously, not far. I would say about 5-10mm. I am trying to print pawpaws diii fan. I had issues with PETG with cura with the ciii fan and have since switched to slic3r. I am still fine tuning my settings and tried printing the diii fan and it gained about 1.5 hours in. I wonder if the small perimeter setting is affecting it

As pawpaw says, no supports are needed

What are your fan settings?

Fan speed: min 35% max 100%
Bridges fan speed: 100%
Disable fan for first 3 layers

Enable fan if time is below 60s
Slow down if layer print time is below 10s
Min print speed: 10m/s

maybe try increase the amount of retraction of the filament??
When I change filament brands I find that I need to change the retraction depending on the temp use for different filaments...
my 2c...

Thanks. I think it was my printer. I got myself an awesome jam in the nozzle to the point I had to swap out the PTFE tube. Also had to hold the dang nozzle over a heat gun to get it clear. It was a fun day.
I printed the same thing in purple and it turned out great. Pretty soon, I am just going to have to bite the bullet and maybe get myself an all-metal hot end.

I printed and connected pawpaw's Eiii Cooler and went to do a print with it on there. That is when my everything went cablhooey. I am not blaming the Eiii Cooler, but it seems like it did not work well for me. I was getting heat creep.
