Re: Our Military Men and Women

I mean, I totally understand people's concerns about raising minimum wage...there's got to be some ideal level it should be, and obviously you can't just boost it to saying everyone makes $100/hr, that would be insane. But for some reason people get stuck in the mindset of "Well if min wage is ...

Interesting! What's the thought behind the nut above the heater block, and the one below the cooling fins?

Re: Our Military Men and Women

I've got to weigh in on team Yay Raising Minimum Wage. If men and women in the armed services really are earning only 18K, then that's too low and should be raised as well. I live in Seattle, and I run a small business, so believe me I've been following the possible pros and cons of raising the min ...

Re: Planetary geared extruder variant on EZFlex

Okay, I just checked my configuration.h, and it looks like I have my extruder motor current set to 210, but I make no guarantees that that's the *optimal* number. It does however work well for the motor I'm using, which is this: m. The gearing on this motor seems to have a tiny bit of backlash, whil...

Re: Planetary geared extruder variant on EZFlex

No changes to the firmware, and I adjusted steps per mm in eeprom just be telling to extrude 100 without the bowden tube connect and seeing nudging the number till it was actually 100mm. I can go check it at some point.

Re: Planetary geared extruder variant on EZFlex

So Nylocke, funny story: the one thing I was going to change and didn't get around to was widening the path that the bowden tube runs through, since it's really really tight. But then I figured it'll at least help the tube stay super securely in place if nothing else. Then I tried printing a vase wi...

Re: Planetary geared extruder variant on EZFlex

The motor from TriDPrinting should work just fine...basically any planetary geared nema 17 will have way more torque than the default motor on the ezstruder. I'm slightly ashamed to say I made all of my changes with Sketchup, since I'm still learning Fusion360, but I can post the skp files if you li...

Planetary geared extruder variant on EZFlex

Hey all! One of my ongoing frustrations with my rostock was the extruder. I started with the huge, original one that came with the kit, which was a pain. Then I upgraded to the ezstruder which was better by far, but would skip when I stressed it too much (even after tweaking the current). I made a m...

Re: Tiko 3D

Here's a question though...delta 3D printers are all derived from Johann's work on the Rostock, which then became the Kossel, all of which is open source. If he put it all under CC sharealike licensing, then is Tiko allowed to keep their stuff closed source? Or is the concept of using a parallel arm...

Re: Tiko 3D

I think it's unlikely that the retail version will be only $179+shipping, but at least unlike some of the other super low cost printer kickstarters they have some actual info on how they've cut costs. The unibody plastic shell seems pretty clever, along with tiny light weight motors riding on the ca...

Re: Build Vat

Many vats are made with acrylic, just be sure you're using cast and not extruded. I tried using polycarbonate, but it got weird...the resin kind of stained it, so I have to assume it wasn't resisting it as well as the acrylic.
