this is supposed to be OL unless +3vdc is applied... i think its broke You have to be cautious when buying those cheap chinese made relays. Its a hit and miss on quality. They're cheap for a reason.

Thanks....hmmm. know of another geared extruder that might work??

Re: Keep losing my balls.

In my prior testing, I could not get the balls to adhere enough. They kept coming off even with careful prep so I never installed this modification to my rostock.

Welding is the probably the best most reliable way of doing it. Unless you can find magnetic balls with studs already screwed to them.

Re: Print with sand at $160 a ton

That's interesting but printing with sand brings its own hazards.

sand has silicate in it, when the dust is fine enough it can get into your lungs and cause problems. I'd be more concerned about this than abs or pla.

Re: 3D printers emit potentially hazardous ultrafine particl

well anything that emits a smell, is particle emission but not all are harmful. If you can smell it, your sensing those particles entering your body. It may be true in this case, but it's not a good rule of thumb. For instance, if you smell bitter almonds in a chemistry lab, you should assume you'r...

Re: Calibrating, hitting the bed

better way to do this.. to absolutely avoid hitting the bed is... manually move it to about 5-10mm off the surface of the bed. Then slowly move downward. once you get close. use m114 command, to display current position. (or was it m119,, if forget which one) that' will tell you how far your z heigh...

Re: new extruder that works

A good way is just to measure (if you can) how much filament is moving out of the extruder with the hot end not installed. Like apache stated. then adjust the steps accordingly till your measurements are right so if you extrude 10mm, 10mm should be coming out the other end. generally a geared extrud...
