Re: All metal head/fan? 24v blower fans.

Thanks, I am modelling a true ducted blower attachment to fully encircle the hot tip output. This will give slotted air output from the blower right near the filament lay area. Most of the manifold vents I have seen are open bottomed and this won't actually do much at all. Currently the blower fan r...

Re: All metal head/fan? 24v blower fans.

Odd that there is a fan blowing over the nozzle cooling fins (I appreciate that is why those fins are there). I can only assume it is to stop the heat softening the filament before it hits the heat zone. Allowing the feed mech to operate. So I would not lose a fan, the fan that keeps the plastic coo...

Re: All metal head/fan? 24v blower fans.

Yes, Comic Sans, a crime against sanity.

Well, I was under the impression if I got a metal head then I could lose the head fan completely, or do i need a full metal head for that (without the peek tube)?

It is all working fine but just asking.

Re: VB3 temp offset/simplify3d.

Thanks all. I had sort of assumed S3D would have the offset built in as it has a profile specific to M2?

Re: Solid thin walls, how please?

Hi, am using S3D and I also use Repetier with slic3r.

I thought it was to do with nozzle output width in relation to model profile?

VB3 temp offset/simplify3d.

Hi

One of my M2 machines has the new head requiring the 20 degree temp increase to allow for sensor position.

Does simplify3D allow for this?

Currently I am putting 215 to 235 on for temp to approximate 195 to 215, it seems to be ok.

Anyone know please?

PEI?

Hi

I have come across using PEI coating or sheet as a base board for cold and heated prints as it seems to have the right combination of stick and hold for reliable prints.

Anyone tried it?
