Re: Multiple Extruders - Why?

What about using two different nozzle diameters so that you could squirt out non-critical sections quickly but still get high detail/precision on certain parts of a print? You could print to two different tolerances or detail levels, in other words. Oh! I get it! Blinded by my own ignorance Open de...

Re: Multiple Extruders - Why?

I would like to understand these items in the list a little more [Edited] Speed - Two heads means more area printed. Slicing software can split the job between two extruders. I don't see the advantage to this, Much of the time, only one could print any way. Any examples of something like this? [Edit...

Yes! this is probably the most used tool in the typical bench jewelers studio. Next might be a jewelers saw (small coping saw) In fact, I have (and most others do) if you choose to use a dremel, you will burn it own in less than a year.

Re: Make Log: Neurascenic

I have a Foredom as well and love it. I would love the files for these clips. Is each clip specific to a particular hand piece ? I have 3 but can't remember which 3 off the top of my head.

Re: Current issue list

Hrrm, the size and arm issue might be because I started with the Tricklaser Carbon arms on the printer. Anyone else have numbers for adjustments after adding those? Thanks! The arms are exactly the same length, so that won't be the case. Brian actually has a very nice jig that keeps the assembled d...

Re: Current issue list

Hmmm... A ratio proportion, might be a quick way to adjust such things. At least a way to get closer to the desired result. of course, won't do a bit of good if that isn't the issue.

Re: Sainsmart PLA

That sucks! I am running their white now, so far without issues. At least at work, where we get rolls of fabric, the rolls are flagged that they are split. Of course, I have seen rolls (100 yards) that have 4 splits in them. Besides loosing your business... You should throw them a severe complaint!
