Re: Makin fat stacks wit my Romax

^while I wait for my enclosure, there were a few small cracks in this on the corners. I used an 3D pen to fill in the cracks, sanded it down and abs'd it. Looks nice, imo. Try this as well " http://forum.seemecnc.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=5524 " I have always had good luck doing it thi...

Try a new USB cable and then if that does not work try a new port on your computer.

Re: Best moisture-free filament strategy?

I keep mine in individually wrapped bags with a desiccant packet in them.
I have yet to have any popping or surface quality issues.

I print with Botfeeder ABS that is almost a year old.

Re: lightning..

I experienced a similar problem when my computer could not keep the printers buffer full and the jerks coincided with the buffer depleting to zero and then filling again. There is no reason why this should be happening to you though as a result of lightening. Try printing from an SD card and let us ...

Re: Workin on DropLit

Question....... Why does the printer rise several revolutions per layer only to then lower again? I would thing you would want to limit the amount of Z-axis re-travel to avoid error stacking. Also how does the print time compare to that of a Max version?

Re: ABS Cooling Crack Repair

There is no noticeable surface deformation IF you keep the heat moving. My major reason for using a heat gun rather than my plastic welder was that I wanted to heat the entire area to see if I could relax the internal stress that cause the crack rather than try to melt the crack together.

Re: ABS Cooling Crack Repair

These are very small cracks (may have to click on image to see them), but they disappear when you heat the ABS. To me this indicates what many have already said about printing in ABS and needing a heated chamber. I believe this is a patented method (Stratasys, or 3D systems) ( :roll: :roll: :roll: )...

Re: 18 Gauge 4 conductor wire question

Also try to use stranded wire that is very fine and flexible. I had the stock wire break three separate times. Admittedly my routing played a large part in the failure, but I would still use fine stranded over the stock any day.

YMMV

I need to try this type of setup eventually. I noticed that my stock setup has a bit of play in it and I even shimmed it using 25 micron shims to insure a tight fit. I don't worry too much about it now because I run slow and still have a stock hotend. However, when I eventually go all metal and have...
