Re: MIC6 preorder number 3 *back for sale*

I'm finding that the actual bed temp is about 4 deg lower than set temp. (had it set to 64 to get to read 60 on the IR gun after having it sit for an hour). With the stock Kapton on glass set up, I read between 59 - 61 on the gun depending on where on the surface I point it when temp is set to 60 wi...

Thanks atomic_peach for the answers. Glad I asked about acetone compatibility. So, it sounds like ABS juice is no, no for PEI then.

Re: MIC6 preorder number 3 *back for sale*

Am I supposed to peel it off before use or is it part of the PEI? Also, do you have a link to the corner mount stl file (I belie...

Re: bed temperature accuracy

Just to follow up. It turned out that I had a bad or a thermistor with incorrect value (measured 195kohm at 18deg C). At room temperature, the bad one read only 9 degC while the hotend one read 18 degC. Makegear shipped me a good one and now bed temp reads correctly. Note that the thermistor is moun...

bed temperature accuracy

Hi All, New to the M2 family. Just had my kit assembled a couple of weeks ago and printed perfectly on my first print. I did notice that bed temperature reading is about 7 deg.C or more higher than what my IR thermometer reads. Is this a concern? Is there some sort of calibration of the thermistor u...

Re: Different Versions of Extruders

In case others are wondering, I got a clarification from Rick. At present, assembled units are shipped with V4 but kits are shipped with V3B.
