Re: Extruder now moving left too far - making grinding sound

Thank you for helping me figure out what on Earth was going on! I finally broke down & took the plunge to upgrade from my trusty V3b, and thought everything was going well until I tried to print and the initial homing resulted in KXKXKXKXKCHXKXKXKCHXKXKCHCHCXXKCHCHK! (Breaking out Ye Olde Superglue ...

Volcanoes

My daughter had to make "3D models" for her science class. Naturally, she decided to go the 3D printing route. :D We designed the volcanoes in Fusion 360, printed them -- and then she used a Creopop to fill in the lava. (Yes, the Creopop plastic did stick to PLA.) The Composite Volcano is my favorit...

Linoleum cutter holder

One of my larger prints. PLA, peeled up a smidge on the corners but otherwise came out pretty good.

One of my longest builds
Put used wine corks through it so the cutting blades stay sharp

My wife's got more cutters, guess we'll have to drink more wine :)

Re: Volunteer Editors needed

I'm happy to take a look / do some editing -- though it sounds like I should wait until the next version. :D

Re: Please don't share outside the forum.

That's very cool! :)

However, don't forget the forum is world readable -- I actually use Google to search it sometimes instead of the 'search' on the top right. So even if people don't actively tell others about it, it's out there... :geek:

Re: Day 1 M2 Mishap - Help recovering

For the Kapton, put it on with dish soap and warm water -- you can slide it around, and squeegee out the water & bubbles. Works like a champ. :) I caution against going bare glass -- I did that for the first few months, and then a PETg piece adhered so well it took some of the glass with it when it ...

Extruder motor shaft broke

How does this even happen? (That's an honest/serious question.) I had a print of about 3 hours stop half-way through. Figured it was a clog or filament jam of some sort. Took the filament out, checked the gear for blockages -- PETg often seems to get a stripped & bent wad right at the gear for me --...

Best Failure, 2015

As promised, the first thing I made with my replacement nozzle was a display for the one that blew it's tip & went from .35 to 3.0. I thought a trophy seemed appropriate. :lol:
