Re: Interesting symptom of an over-tightened carriage

Was there a flat spot on one of the wheels? I wonder if you'd feel a "tick" if you ran the carriage up and down by hand, or if the line in your print would have happened again higher up on the print? (one wheel circumference higher)

Anybody been following the teasers?

I hadn't seen anyone bring this up on the forum yet (not that I looked very hard), but the new pictures from SeeMeCNC have been making the rounds on FaceBook... Looks like we might see a new printer for Black Friday! https://scontent-ort2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/23456509_10105156917023948_304032772...

Re: Whip Clip Eliminator for HE280

Don't force anything. Insert improvised removal tool in the rectangular slots, and if the wire doesn't release, try pushing the wire in and then releasing it.

Re: e3d v6 problems

Check the accelerometer mounting hardware to make sure that you're not shorting anything on the board. What happens if you plug your HE280 back in? Is the wiring harness between the machine and the hotend new? If so, make sure that your thermistor wiring is right. The circuitry on the accel board pu...

Re: Which Thermocouple to buy ?

Using a thermocouple will require modifying the firmware and wiring. I've done this on a pre-V3. Basically you have the thermocouple, which has a 'polarity' and must be wired the right direction, it goes to a signal amplifier board, and then you connect power ground and signal wires from the amp to ...

Does that dip in temp between 21-26 minutes correspond with when your cooling fans came on?

Re: Water cooling questions

Nozzle apertures at or below .2 mm Work with materials such as PEEK, PEI, or other engineering plastic filaments, where the cost of a failed print is high, and post processing the exterior is insufficient remediation. Can you expand on those? Why does water cooling aide smaller nozzles or improve p...

Re: Water cooling questions

It's a lot of cost (like you mention) and an increase in parts count and complexity to address an issue that very few people actually have. Air cooling works just fine except in heated chambers or at super high printing temps. Plus, the cooling block and plumbing (and the coolant) would add inertia ...

Re: Fuse keeps blowing

It's hard to fix the issue if you don't know which wires are which. Figure that out, and what's going on will likely surface. The hotend fan runs all the time, so trouble with those leads could cause a short instantly without having to turn on fans or heaters... Seems like a good place to start trac...

Re: Formlabs form 2 prints for members

Hey Justin!
I've got a handful of other resin printers, and know a few people with a collection for testing, so I might have you make some test/calibration pieces to compare and contrast them sometime.

This is the hot model, at the moment. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1219068
