Offer - Botfeeder Filament Review

Hi Everybody, I just finished using up almost all of my Seemecnc filament and really need more. I am still learning how to use my MAX and I would say I have a 60-70% success rate with most attempts. That being said I use a lot of filament trying and testing things out. Since no one seems to have tri...

Re: Print just stopping dead after about 1 hour.

I had the problem on large prints. My solution was to print from the SD card and I have not had any issues since. And yes the SD card prints of the same sliced file worked when that file would fail hooked to my MAC.

Re: Strange STUTTERING on complex parts

I noticed my max stuttering today and it was a result of my MAC not sending instructions to the MAX's queue. The MAC has power to spare so after some playing around I was able to duplicate the issue. When I am working on a very complex (meaning curvy) shape with honeycomb infill, I better set the re...

Re: Cork gaskets to make steppers quiet

Could someone who does this mod please record a before and after and post it on YouTube? That would make it a slam dunk for those sitting on the fence.

Or just an after and one of us can try to mimic a before since all these max's are the same.

Re: External Perimeter Delamination

Ok so I did another albeit shorter version of the calibration tower from the first post. As you can see I no longer have any issues with perimeter adhesion or layer consistency, however I still have a major problem when it comes to crossing over the honeycomb infill. Thoughts??? Side View, Top View,...

Re: External Perimeter Delamination

While not perfect, it is much better. The only difference between these to was actually calibrating the extruder. The new print is much better but still has a fill issue in one of the light pods. The only issue I have with the printer is I do not know what it can do yet. So after a print unless it i...

Re: External Perimeter Delamination

Ok I am redoing my 0.5mm test wall. I have the default extrusion set to 0.55mm and am getting 0.6 to 0.58 with a multiplier of 1. I will adjust it to try to get closer to 0.55, but I am using an old dial and cheap (Chinese) set of calipers so anything between 0.54 and 0.56 will have to do. I also ha...

Re: External Perimeter Delamination

OK I need to rephrase that, the single wall test looks good, but the wall is about 1.1mm thick. I say "about" because it varies as high as 1.2mm when I turned the feedrate multiplier up to 175% because I wanted to see if the shape would hold. I also just finished the first tower at the slo...

Re: External Perimeter Delamination

Yes and it turned out great..... I am printing a test now, same part with perimeters at 30mm/s (80% for external) and another at 60mm/sec and 60mm/sec external. I am trying to rule out the change over to my MAC in the event the slicer or host is not 100% for a MAC. It should not matter but after man...

Re: External Perimeter Delamination

Could some of you please post your perimeter extrusion settings.... 30,40,....80mm/s

This may help me realize why I am having these issues.

You may simply not be able to run this technology at fast perimeter settings since it takes too long for the hotend to get back to its spot.

External Perimeter Delamination

photo 3.JPG This was an enlarged tower from the "Essential Calibration Kit" on Thingiverse which i cut up to inspect for quality validation. It was printed in ABS (230e/115b) with the default (slic3r not manual) settings for speed only and honeycomb infill verse rectilinear. Any ideas, I ...

Oh I will, Infact I have already contacted them and am waiting on them to ship it. I just wanted to rig it to I could play with it and get familiar with the printer. I am having peeling issues with the ABS because I cannot get the glass hot enough since it is off the bed so much, but other than that...

Re: I may have the most warped Onyx bed Yet.... LOL

I think an adjustable mechanism in the middle of the bed would be a great idea for this particular issue. I love the idea of a heated aluminum/steel bed similar to what the $500k machines at my work have, however I think I would rather make an Onyx bed work on my $1000 printer than make a $500 bed f...

I hate for this to be my very first post, but check out how warped my bed is!!! I have not even hooked it up yet, I simply put a strait edge on it to check and was a little amused to see the gap.....
