What you think? You have more experience than me on this 3D printing. I trust your judgement.

I would be interested in an aluminum version of the effector that I can attach the balls to instead of using ABS. Due to the fact that I will most likely be printing at high temps. Could you provide me with an aluminum effector for this magnetic system? I would pay you for it.

Not quite perfect, but a big improvement. Click to zoom in. The rough part on the stock arms side I believe was where the loop starts after a retraction and move. Kisslicer staggers the start point on each layer. The other side of the Vica sculpture looks great on both prints.

EDIT:I've replaced the photo because on further inspection, the issue with the rough part on the stock arms print may have been retraction-related rather than an arm issue. The quality of the print is much improved with the magnetic arms, and this updated photo is a better comparison of print quality. Notice the better layer alignment on the magnetic arms version, which was actually printed faster.

That is a noticeable difference. Did you see the one I printed with stock arms, came out close to yours with the stock arms. I can't wait for my CF tubes to arrive.

I noticed after the print that one of my cheapskates was a little loose. That could account for the few imperfections that are left in the print with the magnetic arms. I won't have access to my printer until tomorrow, and I'll try another print then.

Check those cams, make sure they are tight. I had the same problems cause I forgot to tighten down the Cams. Once tight cheapskates were firm, no wiggle.

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 piece forward. It is super quiet! These are the extruders I use on all my other printers like the Behemoth. A little pricey though as the stepper and gear are about $50 to $60. For me it is well worth the price. I have hundreds of hours of use on these and they just keep on going and going.

In the pics you can see I put the hole in the wrong spot for the bowden tube on the laser cut piece. Doh!

The files are up on my github https://github.com/xnaron/Xnaron-Magnarms-for-Rostock

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 alignment! These delta's are amazing!

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 :) As soon as he does I will link it on the first page.

..all I want is to be able to print out a good bridge. Wow.

with bridging it is important that you have your flow rate and nozzle size specified correctly. I always go about 10% higher for nozzle size (extrusion width). So for 0.5mm nozzle I specify it as 0.55mm. Just for fun try setting your extrusion width to 0.7mm and see how that affects your bridging.
