Re: anyone know if the THE OLSSON RUBY Nozzle works with the M2?

I've never considered stainless to be suitable proxy for hardened steels when hardness is called for, but it does of course depend on the hardening process. My go-to hardened nozzles for Makergear printers are these: https://www.3dxtech.com/makergear-m2-hercules-a2-hardened-steel-nozzle/, which shou...

Re: anyone know if the THE OLSSON RUBY Nozzle works with the M2?

This is an old post but I couldn't resist: I had switched my M2 from the V4 hotend to an e3d Titan, which required some time consuming modifications. After almost a year running that way I started to run into reliability problems which I could only attribute to the e3d (feed issues that I attributed...

Re: Input Requested: What are your favorite filaments?

1. What is your most commonly used filament grade and manufacturer? eSun ePC (like isnta, I have no use for ABS, ever, and don't see PETG as a great ABS substitute) 2. How would you rate its ease of use (scale of 1 - 5, 5 being easiest)? 3 3. What are some of your other favorites and their ease of ...

Re: Filament Drive Gear Worn Out by Carbon Filament

Thanks Jason, A relevant update: I received my (standard material) replacement in the mail today and just installed it. My M2 is from 2014 and the teeth on the original gear are very course as compared to the new, so no telling if it will wear the same way. Still, I assume the new style isn't harden...

Filament Drive Gear Worn Out by Carbon Filament

Hello all, the Subject says it. I can post a photo if there's interest, but my drive gear has a nasty groove worn into it since starting to use carbon-filled filaments with regularity. Incidentally, I already switched to this ( https://www.3dxtech.com/makergear-m2-hercules-a2-hardened-steel-nozzle/ ...

Rambo Price Difference?

I'm sorry for this unabashedly miserly question, but Ultimachine sells the RAMBo v1.3 for $150 and Makergear has it at $170. Is there a difference?

My RAMBo 1.1b smoked itself today.

Re: World Maker Faire

My husband and I were there too, on Sunday. It's funny, we came away feeling very much the same way. The combined qualities of everyone defaulting to the kid/family friendly, there not being anything we really haven't seen before, and the sense that there where fewer independent makers showing off t...

Re: Correcting horizontal banding (on other printer) in gcod

Thanks both,

Tim, I've been thinking that for a while and just been waiting for Simplify3D (or someone) to try incorporating it. It should be possible to characterize a machine well enough to do that!
