Re: Want to be a pilot, not after watching these.

Back in the 60's, the Canadians developed the beartrap system for ship-based helicopters to widen their weather window. Basically, the specially equipped helicopter lowers a cable, which is secured by the deck crew to a special winch on the landing deck. This allows the helo to pull the wire taunt ...

Re: Version 2.2 is out

I had the cash and feel it has been well worth the purchase price. Speed, no other slicer even comes close to as fast as it is, no matter the complexity of model. This is one of the very biggest pluses to me. I have not ever had any model of any size or complexity take over 1 minute to slice and sli...

Re: A new player in town

I don't really see this as a competitor to seemecnc at all. Perhaps even be good for them in the end. Not competition because honestly they will be losing money on each printer here. So the chances of the quality being on par and including all the listed features seems to be beyond the scope of real...

Re: E3D has released new hotends!

Volcano, perhaps a hotend capable of unhear of higher temps, perhaps not limited? Also could incorporate feeding plastic pellets rather than filament only? Keeping them hot in a reserve like magma under the earth?

Re: E3D has released new hotends!

The cyclops is exactly what a dual extrusion hotend evolution should be. It says experimental, but I'm in. No multinozzle calibration, proported quick media change on the fly.

This is going to be great stuff here, or the begining of it anyways.

Re: Unsolved Mystery. Weird Z0 behavior around build perimet

For certain it is a cost driven issue, for exactly the reasons you list plus the fact that there is zero hardware and firmware made for this market as of yet. But for those whom cost is not the only high priority but perhaps on par with there quality priorities it may be worth it. Servo's also offer...

Re: Unsolved Mystery. Weird Z0 behavior around build perimet

You're hitting on something that I think is the next big thing in home CNC... Closed loop positioning. It's starting with ZProbes, but eventually I think we'll have it on all movement. Could switch to servo motors instead of steppers. I've been pushing this idea for some time now. There seems to be...

I have heard that he has restarted development somewhat, although I have yet to see any substantial gains in this area to speak of. For now I would not go for the pro version and just go for the free version. Until regular updates begin to start again.

Re: E3D's answer for dual extrusion printing is the Cyclops?

Different plastics and temps use aside, I feel that using one hot end for multiple streams of plastic is the way to go. Far less issue with calibration issues and less weight on the effector to be moved around. Obviously this will not work for different temperature plastics through the same hotend. ...
