Re: Tri Hotend

The weight is in the range of 60 grams. It can't be exactly measured in practice because the bowden tubes and wiring are flexible and share their mass between the moving platform and the printer frame. Still, ~60 grams is good for three hotends right? And yes, it does have a screw to hold the therm...

Looking awesome!

Quick question, does it have a way to set up the thermistor with a screw, like the E3D?

Re: Config file repository for Slic3r with Taulman Bridge?

@mven42: just caught my attention that you are using the stock hot end?

If so, do not get pass to 247C or you will melt the PEEK tube inside! For that, you will need an all metal hot end (E3D almost everybody here will say, me included!).

Re: Easy "Manual" ZProbe Calibration

Was just reading through this an found an error. In my "new" (or V2) I got 80, but in the "old" (or V1), the result is 106.6667. This due to the pulleys are, in V1, 15 teeth, and in V2, 20 teeth. Everything else is the same. Not all V1 machines use 15T pulleys. They changed to 2...

Re: Spool finishing, how to attach new one mid print

I will splice mine on the fly during printing using a butane torch if I pay attention and catch it. Also if I have pieces of spools if will splice the pieces up while sitting at my desk and respool the smaller onto the larger. To splice I heat the ends of the filament by holding close to the base o...

Re: Spool finishing, how to attach new one mid print

As the title says. My spool is coming closer to the end, and i am not sure if it will suffice. So 2 questions, 1- If the filament were to be depleted mid print, how do i attach another roll? Just pause the print and thread the new filament in? Or wile i still have slack, use a soldering iron to att...

Re: Spool finishing, how to attach new one mid print

I had tried both methods with success ... as a matter of fact, I just tried (the one from the PC) just some minutes ago. They work! word of caution! before trying the LCD command, test it. The place were the nozzle will be moved is given by (I think!) the dimensions entered in the firmware. I am not...

Re: Spool finishing, how to attach new one mid print

I pause the print while it's doing infill, pull the filament, feed in a new one. hit start. If PRINTING from SD (repetier firmware) is even easier: 1- Hit "Pause" command in LCD (SD Card Menu --> Pause). 2- The nozzle will be moved to the perimeter of the print bed, avoiding damage to the...

I pause the print while it's doing infill, pull the filament, feed in a new one. hit start. Yup .... or, if printing from the computer: 1- Slow the speed 2- Aim to infill 3- Hit Pause 4- INMEDIATLY, raise the hot end 50mm (or any more, just to avoid the heat in the piece) - just hit the +10mm butto...

Re: Spool finishing, how to attach new one mid print

Is it possible to just feed a new roll behind the one that is ending and just let the new one push the old one down the Bowden tube? The retracts would not work, but once what was in the line was cleared it would be ok, right? No, not possible. I had tried and cannot make it work. once the filament...

Re: PEI print bed surface experiments

I had very tiny bubbles under the bed. But now i noticed that they have grown and merged covering several cm^2. So what i had in mind was to heat the bed to soften the tape and its adhesive and use weight to get it to stick. I did pile all of the weight in the center hoping to get a very very minor...

Re: Opinions on software, please...

The problem is that you're required to write a program in order to create a part. That's NOT how design is done. OpenSCAD is a means to an end, but probably the worst means I've seen. Others swear by it, people like me that do a lot of CAD work swear AT it. I suspect there may be situations where O...

I know line by line would have been cheaper. And may infact be better for bubble avoidance. But at the time i thought a single piece would be better and made the purchase. I have no idea why the big sheets cost so much more per cm^2 than the strips.


Oh, I see!
