Re: Want to build a or design a small printer

Re: Want to build a or design a small printer

I like it! That totally would be an awesome start and i like that the top and bottom are printed. Just out of curiosity how come you went with a belt system instead of linear track rails or wire?

Anyone here using OneShape?

w I've been messing around with it hoping to get away from tinkercad. Just wondering what other people here thought of it. I like that i can use it on mac or windows and i can work on parts no matter where i am. Thats what i like about tinkercad. I can start a part at work and finish it when i get h...

Filament Guide and Spool Arm

Just a small little model I made to keep the filament from rubbing against the melamine and causing friction from a sharp angle. I printed it in ninjaflex and it fits into the hole and holds a piece of bowden tubing. m I also did a mashup of two other spool arms. This is two pieces and you bolt them...

Want to build a or design a small printer

I love my rostock max v2 but it's too big and costs to much to build for a family member. I would prefer to source parts myself even if this is the same or more expensive than a kit. I would love to be able to build a delta and copy the tiko's more inventive aspects and size. I think this would be a...

Wondering if it will work with the RAMBO. I've seen a couple other auto calibration setups on here but i felt like the information was scattered.

Re: Filament Spool to Hard to Pull *lightbulb?*

Unspooling it manually did fix the issue, which was why i went down this path in the first place. I did actually get it printing ninjaflex successfully for a few prints after upgrading to direct extruder. m I did create a new spool and it totally does reduce the friction it takes to pull the filamen...

Re: Filament Spool to Hard to Pull *lightbulb?*

thanks captain! I'll keep looking to see what is out there. I'm gonna try making one with some ball bearings i've seen or maybe modify some of the rounded replacement arms. I just hope its enough to fix the issue.

Re: Filament Spool to Hard to Pull *lightbulb?*

Wow! If you're that dedicated that you want to build some kind of arduino solution, go for it. On the other hand, I feel like it would be a lot easier to just print a new low-friction spool arm. I'm sure there are designs with bearings available, or you could come up with your own. I think that wou...

Filament Spool to Hard to Pull *lightbulb?*

I'm having some issues with filament mainly ninjaflex being slowed down because of the force it takes to pull from the spool. If I manually keep the filament slack I have no issues at all and the prints come out great. I've seen only one solution so far where someone on here switched to a nice big b...

So this brought back an issue. If i adjust the Z height through the firmware sometimes it nozzle smashes into the heating bed when i start the print. I tried writing my changes to the eeprom to see if that fixes it and it made it worse by making my z position like 700mm when homed it should be aroun...

g.


Could you elaborate? Are you referring to resetting my Z height using the LCD? Doesn't this still require me to do calibration again?

bunny, profiles for filaments can be created in most slicers, they can include all the parameters, including hotend temp, bed temp, filament diameter and nozzle diameter. you can even include extruder speeds, first layer height and raft no raft option. the only thing you Cant do is have the machine...

Profiles with different height?

Is there any way to have different profiles where the hotend height is different? My replacement heating element arrived today as well as volcano parts for my V6.

Re: Need Advice On A Few Issues

It looks like the break and hotend had a gap. Whol;e figuring that out one of the wires to my heating element broke so I'm down for repairs till i get another. I might update my firmware to roll back to the seemecnc hot end if I'm feeling upto it.
