M2 in Iowa For Sale Price Drop

With New ones still selling, has the market dropped out of the 3D world? I have a rarely used M2 with all the upgrades as maybe 3 years ago and you know what these sold for new. Works fine I just do not use as all my projects are gone. I do not have the OEM box (I don't think anyway) so it would be...

Re: Aging of PETG Filament?

I have some PETG that is maybe two years old, stored in the house and in sealed zip lock bags. How long are these good for and should I just test or toss?

Re: M2 Fire Report

You can not depend on electronics or circuits to be the fire shut off. The only really approved way and its UL listed is a thermal fuse mounted to sense over temperature and positively break by mechanical means, the power to the heater.

Re: M2 model

Does anyone out there have a model of the M2? I am going to design an enclosure and It would be helpful to have a model.

Re: Buying help

All 3D printers take some time to learn. 3D printing is not the answer for every project. This Forum is a great resource for the MakerGear.
