Re: Flexible Magnetic Build Surface for the M2/M3

Willi, You're doing a pretty good job of showing us how this thing goes together. Thanks. A concern with this system is whether it maintains it's flatness and vertical position through removal, extraction of the print, and re-installation assuming of course that care is taken that the lower surface ...

Re: new makergear extruder from ben heck

I was in a place where I couldn't play the sound while I watched it. It did look pretty neat, but if it isn't too hard to remember, what problems with the current extruder did he think his version solved?

Re: MakerGear still in business?

Ed, Your comments remind me of the old tv ad's showing the lonely Maytag repairman. The ad's would have you believe that he was lonely because Maytags never broke. My, as usual perverse, take on this was that you would be crazy to buy a Maytag. If it broke the repairman having had no previous experi...

Re: Anyone have an Ultra One yet?

I've been reading along here and am astonished that the folks from MakerGear haven't pitched in. You're clearly intelligent, methodical, and to the extent of my knowledge not trying to do anything bizarre. Surely they must have a grip on these sorts of problems, and could share their approach with y...

Re: Makergear cameo shot on youtube

I may be mistaken, but it looks like the Mosquito Hot End is really intended for a bourden drive printer. I emailed these guys and learned that they couldn't mount their really slick heat-sink setup on the M2 because the filament drive was in the way. So they left it off. My question then would be "...

Re: M3 ID REV 0 Enclosure made with printed hardware

It's pretty nice Dave,

Re: PEI bonded to Mic6

Hi Karl,
3/4 inch seems pretty substantial. Is this a thermal consideration? I stabilized the 1/8 inch aluminum bed on my TinyBoy by gluing 1/8 inch cork drawer liner under the heater element - or at least I think I did - it does work.
