Re: Pre-Rev. E HBP Wire Bracket Upgrade

I stuck a Keenovo 250W/24v heater directly to the underside of a MIC6 plate, and I'm using your bracket to strain-relief the corregated tubing. Hopefully it goes well :)

Re: Mic 6 tooling plate

I found a handful of 7.75 x 10" MIC6 plates, about 4 left. mic6 [at] pingring.org if you want one.

Re: Large Overhead Filament Spools

I added filament runout sensors to my printers, now I just let them run until the 1kg spool runs out. The print pauses and waits for me to change out the filament, and everything works as I'd hope. With a simple print and a drill, you can also reload the 1kg spools from a 25kg master spool, too. Thi...

Re: (used) new makergear purchase

If it's a dual V4 extruder (vs a custom one) with a 3-point spider and a top-homing setup, it's a prototype dual -- so Rev D, ~ ish. I'd take the whole thing (carefully) apart, clean all the slides with WD40 / QTips over and over, and re-lube with sewing machine oil. Make sure the fans are clean and...

Re: Unexpected y-axis shift mid print

This is consistent across many different parts. Dropping those values to 2k (from 3k) al...

Re: Issues with the X-axis

You can stop using that horrible lithium grease in the carriages. It's supposed to be a very thin machine oil. The lithium was for the old metal-on-metal Z axis. Take the carriage off, clean it out with WD40 and alcohol until it's dry, then lubricate with 1 drop per side of sewing machine oil. Clean...

Re: Layer Shifting on M3 ID

That's definitely nozzle drag. Z-Hop / Vertical lift will fix it. You only need 0.20mm
