Re: Brittle T-Glase

only go above 240 (246 i think its he crit temp for the PEEK part of the SeeMeCNC hot end and most say not to take it above 235C to have a safety margin... I would not go above 235 without using an all metal hotend such as the E3DV6

I will let the real experts comment on the PET-G as I have yet to start on the spool i bought based on the recommendations here on the forum... except to note that the recommended hot end temp for it is too close to the failure temp for the PEEK section of the stock SMC hot end for me to use it exce...

I would recommend that you make your effector (get a $5 spare effector plate here https://www.seemecnc.com/collections/parts-accessories/products/molded-platform-for-ball-joint-arms) and hotted combo quick swap with plugs and perhaps a pair of these http://www.themakerhive.com/shop/viewitem.php?prod...

Re: Hi from Boston, MA!

the main reason for painting the edges (other than it looks cool) is to control the odor of the laser cut Melamine. and i guess it will increase stability in very high humidity swing areas.

You have the parts for the stock SeeMeCNC hot end and its mount as they came with your kit. seriously consider using it and ABS to print your first two parts following GeneB's excellent instructions. get a fell for the printer with it and it does a fine job with ABS and PLA (for PLA many will prefer...

How did your printer do with the supplied SeeMeCNC hot end with ABS? as a side note the E3Dv6 is at its best with high temp filaments and is know to be a little bit finicky with PLA esp with retractions... I am still using the stock hot end and it works very well with PLA and ABS, but is stressed to...

Very nice and I have been using these folks for many years for metal as I live very far from the nearest shop where you can roll up and get what you need cut to order rather than in 12 foot or longer lengths the way many industrial suppliers work http://www.onlinemetals.com/merchant.cfm?id=60&st...
