Re: Black MAX

Buying a Bondtech QR is the quickest solution, but costly. I have access to a full shop, lathe and mill, torches for heat treating. As the picture of my top board shows, laser cutting also. I think the geared stepper with dual gear extrusion is the way to go, and I have four extruders to make so far...

Re: Enclosure build to print ABS and Nylon bigger and faster

Not using the wedges will save you a step in the future if you add more wires; I had to modify my wedges with a hole so I can run additional wires up the cheapskate channel slots for a second hotend and stepper motor cables for dual head printing. I am using plastic banding strips from packages to c...

I did read one of their responses stating ebay will not allow posting links. I saw someone create just3dprinted login and post the same item with crediting where the file came from and who created it. They go on to bash just3dprint for not following the practice and list the part for $.99

I had the Peek fan cool the hotend while printing, so I now wrap F4 tape on the hotend. You could use kapton tape also.

I get better heat control on the hotend with it on also. The tape is Orange with a white strip, but it c...
