Re: Hello From Virginia Beach

I think I'll let it ride for right now, do a few hours of printing and check for wear. I also ran wiring for led lights in that tube, so I might run one wire down each of the other two tubes, as they have a tad more room. If I every go for dual extrusion I'll have to figure out a different way to ro...

Re: Hello From Virginia Beach

Also, the manual doesn't say how much wire to leave on either end of the extrusions, what's your recommendation on that?

Thanks!

Re: Hello From Virginia Beach

Also, an 11mm socket seems to be the perfect tap to set the bearings in those selves.... I can tap just the outer ring this way.

Re: Hello From Virginia Beach

So far so good. Lost one of the Rambo mounts last night, spent 1/2hr searching last night and 15 minutes today. Decided to say f' if and put the support plate on without it. Turns out it a bit of the laminate covering was still on the peice and it got stuck to the underside of the base plate. Found ...

Re: Hello From Virginia Beach

I got all the peices out and shellaced them... I'm a few minutes, I'm gonna paint them (the shellac says I can paint in in one hour) my hands smell like smoke bbq mmmmm I don't think the glow affect is going to be that glowy. I did a test on a sheet of paper last night and you really have to hold it...

Re: Hello From Virginia Beach

Got the dew's in the fridge. I use the bottom for filament storage. I have a mini-dehumidifier inside to keep things nice and dry.

Re: Hello From Virginia Beach

I had meant to ask about that caulk actually. It says 100% RTV silicone. It says it's rated up to 400degrees F m Does that sound like it will work? Oh, and i do have Kapton tape, but it wasn't something i bought just for this. It's laying in a shelf close by. EDIT: Seems like your stuff is rated up ...

Re: Interesting new Diamond hotend 3x filament

The magnet idea is un-patentable. Raymond May is an example of prior art in the domain, while JJ's would also serve as prior art blocking Makerbot's patent. This isn't even getting into the magnetic bases used for physics experiments, which is where Raymond's design came from. Thus, the "inven...

Re: Hello From Virginia Beach

Give some thought to first building and using the kit hot end... (I find it much easier to get good results with it using PLA than the e3d...it can be tricky dialing in things like retracts with it) the e3d has been great with the Talman nylon for example... ABS has been fine with both of them so b...

Hello From Virginia Beach

Hello I'm Mike From VA beach. Excited is the word i would use. I had a Replikeo I3 prior to deciding to invest in a Rostock V2. It was OK for what it was, but it suffered a failure when some ABS broke off my print and jammed into the fan, and melted the ABS all the way up the bowden tube! While i wa...
