Rostock Max v3 Bowden tube length

Hello all, I have been having issues with my hot end printing fine, getting stringy and then stop extruding after 15 mins to 1.5 hours into the print. A couple weeks ago my Bowden tube "burst" just below the EZ Struder. I'm thinking I over-retracted the filament enough to make the filament...

Surround sound wall speaker mount

Hello all, Here is the latest thing which I have made since it's better to spend 1.5-2 hours designing, 7 m and $0.62 of filament and spend $4.30 on mounting hardware, rather than drop $6.97 & shipping on amazon for the same thing... It's a wall mount for my home Surround sound speaker. It is de...

Re: Worn & eaten belts / bent Motor mount

Hey Rootboy, Thanks again. I contacted SeeMeCnc(SMC) customer service and they are doing me an huge solid by sending me new injection molded mounts. So one good turn deserves another, I bought new belts from them. I appreciate all your help and the next time around (which I hope will not happen for ...

Re: Anniversary lamp for my sweetie

Hi Xeno, I made the lithophane from my photo using http://3dp.rocks/lithophane/ and selected the Curved option and large border(arbitrary) and made it 8mm thick. Make note of the "Positive/Negative" switch on the image settings page, I had it wrong the first time and had to go back and exp...

Re: Anniversary lamp for my sweetie

Thanks for the support guys. I reported this <person> to the admin. Being proud of my gift for my wife, this was the first post I made on this forum showing what I designed and made. At this point, I am wondering if I should bother with this forum. I made my Max v3 from a DIY kit (2nd printer) and n...

Re: Anniversary lamp for my sweetie

I'm not breaking into my wife's work to prove my work to you - and she is happy which matters. I post a lithophane for my 25th Anniversary which took 4 total days to design and print posted not warranting any attack from such a small person as yourself. Shame on you. And you have proven that you ARE...

Buddy, No trolling please, it's a lithophane printed the MakerGeeks White Raptor PLA, with a Phillips warm white LED bulb behind it. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Philips-40W-Equivalent-Soft-White-Clear-Classic-Glass-Dimmable-B11-LED-Bulb-with-Candelabra-Base-3-Pack-470591/301301259?MERCH=REC-_-PIPHor...

Re: Worn & eaten belts / bent Motor mount

Thanks for the replies! Rootboy: I appreciate the suggestion for belts, they are not available, so I'll keep looking... And I don't have enough $$ to get new mounts hogged from bar/billet stock, so I'll see if I can get new original ones through SeeMeCnc and less torquing. If I had my enclosure done...

Re: Anniversary lamp for my sweetie

In addition, I bulked up the supports too much, so use care removing them, but the wiring channel came out great.

Re: Anniversary lamp for my sweetie

Hi Roberts_Clif, This was made out a few prints. 1 for the lithophane (MakerGeeks Raptor PLA White), 1 for the frame (2 parts MakerGeeks Raptor PLA Black) and the hearts were printed separately (HIPS Red that's been lying around forever) and glued on. I'm still dialing it in before I take on (if I d...
