I stuck a Keenovo 250W/24v heater directly to the underside of a MIC6 plate, and I'm using your bracket to strain-relief the corregated tubing. Hopefully it goes well :)
Excellent idea! I'll give the same I try next time I need to tear one apart.

Re: Issues with the X-axis

You can stop using that horrible lithium grease in the carriages. It's supposed to be a very thin machine oil. The lithium was for the old metal-on-metal Z axis. Take the carriage off, clean it out with WD40 and alcohol until it's dry, then lubricate with 1 drop per side of sewing machine oil. Clea...

Re: Issues with the X-axis

This issues been plaguing me again. I've ignored it for almost a year, but it's steadily gotten to the point of keeping me up at night haha. Do I need to just replace the carriage every 6 months or so? Would it be worth the extra $75 to replace the rail as well? It only acts up around the center thi...

Pre-Rev. E HBP Wire Bracket Upgrade

I've used so many of you guys' amazing mods, figured I'd finally contribute :D I recently picked up an older used Dual M2. The Z motor was unfortunately failing, and I decided while I'm at it I'd just upgrade everything to Rev. E. I was not feeling the exposed HBP wires, especially after reading how...

Re: Sudden uphill battle with PETG?

Thanks for the info guys! I had no idea the nozzles had such a limited lifespan. Regarding the hot end, can the physical hot end itself have any issues? Would swapping out just the thermistor/nozzle/heater cartridge have the same effect? Checked the potential feed path issues, all seem ok. Another q...

Sudden uphill battle with PETG?

Little bit of background info to start: I've printed around 40 spools of ESUN PETG, and I believe I have a decent understanding of its characteristics and required settings. I print costume helmets for clients in pieces, and many of my prints are 24 hours plus. PETG has been a great filament for thi...
