Re: Coming soon from 713Maker.com

So this will replace all the melamine parts from a V2 machine...very interested in cost.

Re: XY-Layer shifting with warm Machine

I had a problem like this on my old FlashForge machine when my glass bed wasn't clamped well enough to the heated build plate. Don't think the probability of this happening on an RMax is high, but worth making sure it doesn't move around. Also, more details on the machine would be helpful. Is it bon...

Re: Effects of microstepping and segmentation on print qualty

Well it looks like my printer doesn't respond to layer thickness like yours does. Here is a print that is comprised of 3 different layer thicknesses. 0-18mm has 0.1604mm thick layers, 18-34mm has 0.1618mm thick layers, and 34-50mm has 0.15mm thick layers. The striping looks the same for all 3 layer ...

Thanks for the explanation. I'll give it a go tonight with a 0.1604mm layer height.

Re: Effects of microstepping and segmentation on print qualty

Interesting. My steps per mm is actually set at 80.7. I calibrated that with a dial indicator (modified it until a Z axis move command equaled the change in reading on the dial).

How did you come up with the 0.1618 layer height?

Re: Effects of microstepping and segmentation on print qualty

I'll play. I've always had a light amount vertical banding on my Rostock Max and it has always irritated me (one of the top 5 reasons I'm designing a new printer right now). If changing something simple would improve this I would be ecstatic in the mean time. As for my machine, I'm running a Rostock...

Re: Aluminum Cyclops Water Cooling :D

Yes it would definitely require a mill, which luckily is something that I have. You basically have to mill fins into the path where the water flows...it is really just like doing a CPU water block for a computer except no need for such detail I don't think. Here is the design I have been working on....

Why do you think machining a whole new block would be better? I have approximately zero knowledge regarding thermals and water cooling, but I can't imagine you'd get much more surface area exposed to the water....

Watercooling my Chimera block is something that I have been thinking about for a while.

Not that anyone missed me, but I did just kind of vanish from the 3D printing world for a while (shut down my 3DHubs, stopped developing my V3DR printer, sold my FlashForge, and only printed when I actually needed something). That's all changed now and I'm back full force with a new full time job in...

Windshadow, Just to add fuel to the conversation, I also do mechanical design for a living using PTC Creo and am currently using both Fusion360 and OnShape at home. While I still think Fusion 360 is the better package currently, OnShape is growing in functionality pretty quickly and I wouldn't be su...

nice work good choice for wheels those Open Builds dual bearing V wheels work really well. By the way, the open builds wheels run fine in the groove of plain old "1 x 1" aluminum extrusions like the 8020 brand. You don't need to use the vslot extrusions. I am not sure, but the 8020 may sa...

I know it can be tiring to change a design once you feel you have something perfect but I'd like to offer you a suggestion for removing part of the model that grips more firmly on the towers and this is why.

For F360 and OnShape it's the little things...measurement tools are definitely lacking functionality, Fusion 360 can't export a STEP of distributed designs (have to unlink everything), I really don't like the way that mates are stored in their own tree (can't select a part and just edit the mates......
