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!

Correcting horizontal banding (on other printer) in gcode

Hello, I've been commissioning a homebrew large format printer for a couple months now, pulling my hair out with redesigns to fix various mechanical issues as I go. This has nothing to do with the M2, but I thought people might be interested. The machine in question is large (24" square build surfac...
