Re: My Zesty Nimble review...

So all in all. Would you say this is a better extruder to side with rather then the bondtec? I know you review was unbiased. But seeing as you have more time under your belt with the dual drive extruder. Would you choose this one if you had to do it all over again? I ask, as I too am looking to repl...

I built it for prototyping bike frames. So I needed a printer tall enough to make tubes as long as possible. Hence the very tall delta.

Re: The story of my 6ft tall printer

I dunno about counterweights - they increase the mass and therefore the force required for acceleration. How about setting up a landing pad of some sort for the effector platform, and setting up the G-code to drive to that position at the end of the print? That definitely could work. I could rig up...

1. Aren't your extruder motors going to get hot like that? 2. Counter weights. I'm using an old hard drive as a counter weight for my flying extruder. I thought that would be a problem as well, but so far the motor temps have been fine. Im going to redesign the motor mounts as soon as I have the du...
