Re: 1mm nozzle? Has anyone tried this with a MAX2

I don't think the stepper motor is going to be the issue, it being able to heat the filament fast enough. If in the end the print has to be 0.3mm a bigger nozzle isn't going to save you much time.

Re: MRRF 2017 Has a date!! March 25-26, 2017

Looking at the social media it seems there is quite an impressive list of 3d print personalities that are planning on showing up this year. Maybe SeeMeCNC can have a post with a list of signed up sponsors (like they had in graphic form in previous years) and a "scheduled to attend" list.

Re: New Slic3r Prusa Edition (rocks)

Is there a profile for the max v3? Our makerspace just finished building one and I'm looking for an open source slicer to use instead of S3D that I use myself.

Re: Dino Jam!

How hot is your extruder motor getting? It looks like your PLA is getting soft in an area where it shouldn't be and if your extruder motor is really hot that could be the cause. It may not be a hot end issue.
