Re: Any FPV Drone guys here?

I haven't flown much as of lately, been really into the 3d printing and life changes! If you have any questi...

Re: Swiss cheese print quality issues

Another, thing could be that you are applying too much Layer cooling and cooling the nozzle to the point that it clogs/unclogs/clogs/unclogs... I saw this on mine when I used the stock Layer cooling fan mount and my new E3D...the stock layer fan mount point at the nozzle too much and over cools it.....

Re: E3D V6 and PETG

So I know this thread is a bit old, but I just started using PETG and it is a very finicky beast at best. Prints great at higher speeds, very shiny, strong, extreme layer adhesion, no smell, BUT it oozes something fierce, strings, and at slow speeds gets very..."sparkly/textured". I have h...

Re: Issues with overhangs and largeish print

I think the delaminating between layers is a matter of actually building a heated enclosure. I would disagree on that... I don't think you are printing your ABS hot enough, it appears that you may be having extrusion jams/slows that cause gaps or too little material being extruded. This can also be...

Re: Concentric layer fan shroud

Let's see, Protopasta has HT-PLA which when annealed should reject more heat. You could also use duct tape (Not duck, but the aluminized stuff) to cover the top surface. Personally, I like the Berd air as a concept (But I still have to nail down a good mount for it), as it's all aluminum. I like th...

Re: If I'm lucky.

That is one of the problems with this equipment, it gets to be very expensive. It would help if there was a capable firmware that fits the Rambo. There are still no newer "official" (read SeeMe) firmwares available. Does a auto calibration take so much memory that it cannot be fitted into...

Meh, small potatoes. No different than pulling models off Thingiverse and sending it to community printing services like 3DHubs.

Re: How do you guys feel about crowdfunding plugs?

On a side note anyone see this open sourced E3D printer? m People have early units and feedback seems positive, there are a number of things I like in the design, I just wish they'd copied the independent heads of the BCN3D for dual extrusion, but I don't believe any of the opensource firmwares hav...
