Re: MetalMax Delta printer - belt catching on new linear rail - need advice please

Hi Jonathan, Adding idlers to move belt path out should work fine. You will need one top and bottom. However, the belt can not have a 90 degree twist like shown in your picture. You will loose some maximum printable area using the linear rails. Personally, I feel you will not see any noticeable adva...

Re: Calibration Help

100 mm/s retract speed is way to fast for PLA.
Try 20 or 25

z-lift between 3 to 5 mm is a good idea also.

Re: Laser Engraver (picture to g-code) for Repetier

Very cool.
I have a 2watt laser, and putting together a super shorty Rostock MAX from odd spare parts laying around for the laser. Now I need to find the time to finish it.
Your software looks very interesting!

Any recent developments on this?

Re: Bond tech extruder question....

I have several bondtech and they calibrate differently than the suggested value. Keep in mind the type of filament (soft, hard, etc.) Will effect the extruder steps per mm. As will how tight you make the drive roller adjustment, more on softer filaments. Really if you want to be super picky you coul...

I agree, the retract speed is to fast for PLA
Try lowering it to 25 or 30

Re: High strength filament recommendations?

Atomics carbon fiber petg is what I would recommend also.
You should use a steel nozzle, it is abrasive and will wear out a brass nozzle quickly.

Re: SIMPLE CONNECTOR FOR HOTEND WIRING COMING SOON

Never put tinned wires in a spring connector. It really wasn't hard to open the spring release Spring cage connections work well with tinned wires, unlike screw terminals, these connectors are designed for both solid, and stranded wires. Use a push pin to open the spring works best. You can push it...
