Re: nema17 dampers

I finally put my dampers on....it's soo awesome! So quiet. Dare I say the print quality looks its best ever. I have only run one print though. I'd be interested to see how a tall skinny part comes out. I haven't had any issues with mine at this point. The only downside is that the fans seem too lou...

Filament Tuning Process in S3D

All, Is there any documentation that I can follow that will allow me to optimize my settings for each type of filament? The speed settings are pretty clear, but I have a poor understanding of how to set the proper amount of retraction, when to use Coast, Wipe, and ZHop along with how to properly tun...

Re: nema17 dampers

I just installed these on my printer and the difference is dramatic.

Re: M2 Auto-Leveling Kit (Beta)

Not that anybody else is going to try implementing the auto-leveling with random hardware purchased through Amazon, but for the record, the 2mm proximity sensor does NOT work with the Zebra plate. However, it does work on a strip of copper tape, so I think the problem is the thickness of the Zebra ...

Re: M2 Auto-Leveling Kit (Beta)

All,

Given that the sensor is good for 3-4mm, will it not detect the heat spreader through the glass? I ordered one of the sensors from Amazon since the site shows as being out of them, so I guess I will find out.. :D

If the CFM is at least the same as the stock fans and they are quieter, that seems like a win all around.

Re: Best of Day 2

Thank you... :-)

Jim,

Best of Day 2

I'm on my second day with the M2 and it has been running constantly. I have tried/tested PLA, ABS, and PETG on it now and it all works very well. My project this evening was to print this design and light it up with a Trinket controlled Neopixel. Here is a link for the shade, which I found on Thingi...

Re: What do you call a bunch of M2s in one spot

Hmm.... A different perspective.

A Gearbox?
A Transmission?
