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,
Does your heater have a thermostat? You mentioned a thermometer? What temperature have you found to be best for printing ABS?

Re: cooling supliment

Hi Makeal,
What do you interpret in your prints as symptom of not-enough cooling? I feel I get close to perfect prints with my stock M2, the glass plate, tape, glue-sitck, and Esun PLA, using Simplify3d 4.0 with settings I'll share with you if you'd like.

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.

Re: Thumb screw for M2 Bed Leveling

If it is an ANSI threaded screw (this one isn't) and number 10 or smaller, I can usually shear it off pretty cleanly with my stripper/ crimping tool. If it's Metric (this one is) I grab it in a vise and using a cut-off wheel in a hand grinder (Dremel tool) cut off the portion that makes it too long....

https://softsolder.files.wordpress.com/2018/02/img_20180205_093112-m2-nozzle-silicone-applied.jpg?w=420 Looks hideous, works fine … Ed, Is this the nozzle you currently use? I ask because I agree that it isn't pretty. On the other hand, I run things which worked from the start and which I'd planned...

burned(?) PETG in prints

I seem to be getting this problem on most of my PETG prints. I'm using E-Sun "natural" THe PETG settings recommended at this site, 247C Extruder, 87C Bed, and in this case 100% cooling on from second layer. I get these inclusions of burned filament every so often. See photos. What do you think is ca...
