Re: Cool LED Mod for M2?

Hey apk,

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I've got a 5m strip of LED's and other single LED's I've been looking to use for a while. I'm not sure if I can separate the LED strip into sections though...I'm sure it can probably be done, I've just never done it before.

Re: V4 Extruder Disassembly and Hot Bed Position...Autolevel

Thanks for the detailed responses guys. Should have thought about using one of the little allen wrenches! Made due by heating a paperclip on my gas stove and running that through the barrel. Worked pretty well. Firing up a test print now to see if everything is back to official likeaboss printing st...

Filament Gear Inoperable

So what I thought was a clogged extruder has turned out to be something worse. The filament drive gear has zero drive forward or backwards. ...and I just figured it out...but thought I would post how I fixed it to help anyone else having the same issue. The M2 has a feature that prevents cold extrus...

V4 Extruder Disassembly and Hot Bed Position...Autoleveling?

Hi Guys, Ran into an issue last night with my filament drive gear not turning. Appears to be from extruder getting clogged w/ PLA. I read the other thread on disassembly, and got the nozzle cap off, but wasn't able to remove the filament from the main body of the extruder. Have the cap soaking in so...

The first backup parts you'd print?

Quick question on the M2 for those that use it a lot. What are the first parts you'd print of the M2 itself to have around as spares/backups in case something breaks?

Cleaning Nozzle and Inconsistent Flow/Filament Wraps Upward

Hi Guys, Have an issue with my M2. During the printing, the filament is wrapping upward back towards the nozzle and sometimes getting stuck. I'm not sure what would cause that? The nozzle has some buildup on it which only makes matters worse. A) What should I use to clean the nozzle? I'm not sure if...

Recommendations On A 3D Scanner?

Hi Guys, Loving my new M2, and have enjoyed printing a lot of things from stuff I've found online. I've come across a lot of instances though where it'd be nice to put something on a platform and have it render a 3D image file for me that I could easily reprint on my M2. I know zilch about 3D scanne...
