Re: Easy "Manual" ZProbe Calibration

Just want to thank you again for your post. I use it often and I think it is a very useful post. Your welcome! Actually, I have kind of evolved the method using a excel spreadsheet to get all the feedback, and now is my only way to calibrate: no screws at all. And, can calibrate to very I have been...

Re: Continuos Liquid Interface (CLIP)

The consensus from those who've looked at the patents appears to be the novelty is using the relatively new PTFE AF 2400 sheet tensioned as what hobbyists call a stretch vat. This alleviates the need to break the surface seal so you can print continuously. That's the bulk of the speed win, the rest...

Continuos Liquid Interface (CLIP)

Hey Guys, I guess you noticed the "Continuous Liquid Interface Production" (CLIP) announcement from Carbon3D. At first glance, I thought it same technology as LittleRP/DropLit, the hype was just marketing, nothing new. Indeed, it is A LOT of marketing BUT, also, the "only" new id...

Re: Best moisture-free filament strategy?

Thanks to you, I had a (no so good) idea ! I think the best way to prevent moisture recovery, is to work in a printer which is totally close and a bit heated (I will not speak there about the interest of printing in a closed volume, but it would increase a lot most of printings...) If your spool is...

Thank you for you interest.. Your idea makes sense, yes, but I can't confirm that it will work.. Furthermore, if you encouter a moisture issue, you just have to put you filament to oven at the good temp and during the good time, you would not damage anything... Just look at this datasheet, this is ...

Quick question, how could you measure the moisture *inside* the filament? is it an easy way? (not the environment surrounding it, but the filament itself?)

Re: PEI print bed surface experiments

I can see that the filament is well extruded and has a nice and thick extrusion that covers the PEI well. But after some time it just seems to let go for some reason. I will try en...

But you can run the Tri hotend with only one or two nozzles inserted. The heat sink has more than enough cooli...
