Re: Nylon

Try applying a PVA solution or glue stick to a cold bed and dont heat it up so hot. Between 40-90 degrees C should hopefully be enough. Also, try adding a significant brim to the part to keep it stuck to the bed. If that doesnt work then go with the extreme solution of just squriting white school gl...

Re: Nylon

Hmmmm. I tried the birch plywood last night, and again the nylon peeled itself off after the first few layers. It seems that Nylon has even more of a warp-tendency than ABS. I find that hard to believe, but there you go. I'll try the PVA solution on top of the plywood next (don't really want to put...

Well now that you mention it I do have some questions for you about the misumi linear rails. Which size EXACTLY did you get and how did you determine what rail length would be needed?

Re: trying to mount trick trucks

Do you have a pattern for a spacer to mount the ball & cup arms to the trick trucks? Ideally something where I can use those nice end stop thumbscrews you sell. If not, no biggie, I'm sure I can put something together in openSCAD. Thanks! This! It shouldn't be too terribly difficult to draw one...

Re: Solid Metal / Possibly One Piece Delta Printer

None of those, I remember it was a silverish metal and by open top I mean that I don't think the extensions were bound/secured together at the top in any way, shape, form or fashion. I wanna say it was called the "Metal Air" or something.... Anybody? EDIT: http://forum.seemecnc.com/viewtop...

Solid Metal / Possibly One Piece Delta Printer

I could have sworn that I had seen a user on here post their all metal delta printer, if I remember correctly it had an open top and it looked to be made of stainless steel or aluminum. I am not talking about the Max Metal, if anyone has any info/pictures on this I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks

Re: Strange Lulzbot TAZ 3 Behavior

So just turned the fan down in the LCD from 255 to 128, that fixed it. Oops

Yesterday though I did have the powersupply over heat and shut everything down mid print. I turned it on ten minutes later with no issues since. Any idea as to why?

I was fiddling with my layer fan connection just now and shorted something out.

Rostock Max V2 goes to DEF DEF when bed is above 90C

I normally print around 70-80C bed temperature, but without an enclosure, printing with ABS needs a bit hotter bed temp.
