Re: Aero Mount

I sent 713 maker an email the other day about this. Haven't herd back from them. The Areo looks promising and I like the fact that I can modify it pretty easy to set up water cooling. My question is how will the stepper motor perform in an heated enclosure around 70c? I wonder if that should be wate...

Re: BerdAir comeing soon From Yellow Jacket Concepts

I was thinking that since the end is metal it could always be heated to blow hot air instead of cold air on the part. If you needed more air flow but don't want it so cold you get warping. I'm using a heated enclosure which will be temp controlled so I prob won't need to use that idea if I just pull...

Increasing build size?

Let's say if I wanted to make a bigger printer using the same effector plate and carriages as a Rostock max while making longer arms and a bigger frame. How wide could I get my print area before I run into problems? Reason is aftermarket parts from say tricklaser and others are good to work with. Ju...

Re: Upgrading to ARM and 0.9 Steppers - Vertical Banding Iss

Does anyone have the max working with the smoothieboard yet? I don't know much like if our current software will run with a few setting changes.

I still have the old Rambo with 1/8th stepping so I need this upgrade soon.

What about printing nylon on this surface? I ask because I may just do this without the glass and stick it on my aluminum bed.

It would be nice if you can find the file but don't spend a lot of time searching if you are not sure where it is. The one that you are using looks good and has already been tested by yourself, that's why I asked. http://forum.seemecnc.com/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=1704" onclick="window.open(this.hr...

Re: Update 2-26-14 My printer is almost complete

thenewguy, great job on the printer. Looks fantastic and also seems to work great. I'm confused though: Why choose peltier elements for heating? How are you even getting 100C from them? Seems like a 110V coil wire would be much more efficient then the peltier elements, no? The peltier elements work...

Update

So I thought I would give you a good update. I have taken this thing apart so many times with constant upgrades I don't get to many chances to print. But I do finally have it working close to how I want it. I do still have to install the Arduino controlled glass window. Other than that
Enjoy.

Re: Printing with Line trimmer

Any ideas to fine tune this? It seems like the diameter of the trimmer line is keeping the print from better results.

Re: Thermister terminal problem - HELP!!

If you shorted the thermistor input on the board your host will read like -20. If so you can change to one of the other 2 inputs. However to get host to read the correct imput you have to go to pins h in arduino. Someone posted how this was done before on the forums. I have done it but don't know of...

How long did you leave it in there? What bed temp? g. 2 hours at 110 with very little acetone. (Was my first time) When I bumped it up to 115 with a few table spoons of acetone it really kicked in. I think I had to heat up the glass jar a bit more. Which is why I did the 5c bump. The key is to have...
