Re: Xnaron Printable Magnetic u-joint option for Rostock Max

Xnaron: Would it be possible for you to post the squirrel cage fan mounts that you created to hold those squirrel cage fans you are using? oops I missed this one in my PM's. The fan mount was from os1r1s. I have asked him to share it. He is going to put it on his github. I will remind him again :) ...

Here is a vica I sliced with KISS at .25mm layer height in Vase fill with one loop. I am getting ever so slight stringies because I have the temp a touch low. This is with the cheap reprapper.com silver PLA. It doesn't print anywhere as nice as the ultimachine silver does. Checkout the layer alignme...

Re: Xnaron Printable Magnetic u-joint option for Rostock Max

Here are some pics of my new quick change extruder setup... I'm using a 5.2:1 geared nema 17. I am set to 60mm/s retracts and the Rambo current is set at 115. I think I can go even faster on the retracts. To change the filament you just push the two long springed screws down and pull the bearing pie...

How many perimeters for the boom ends and the arms? 10 perimeters for the boom ends. This should be a simple concept but not to me. What is meant by 10 perimeters for the boom ends? Number of loops in KISS. It is the number of perimeter loops around the object. 10 loops on this part will ensure the...

Eaglezsoar, you might try hitting Wal-Mart and get six CF arrows. Take a digital caliper with you to make sure they're the right diameter. If you're lucky, they may stock un-fletched shafts that you can buy. Most sporting goods stores should carry them as well. g. I did exactly that when I went to ...

Did you do any operations to the boom ends to clean up where they touch the balls, or did you use them as printed?


I used them as printed.

Did you have to drill out a hole onto the Chrome steel balls? Or did you just JB Weld them onto the screw? Flateric welded them. My kit will use jb weld. It works very well and has held up to many hours of printing. Ultimately I would like to be able to drill a hole in the balls and glue in a 3mm s...
