Re: Reprinting Filament Drive. What material should I use?

Those of you who have printed the drive, what position do you place it in on the build plate. Default where it drops or do you alter it? Do you use support? If so do you modify the default support (s3d) and what support infill do you use? Only have an M2 so not dissoluble filament choice and was goi...

Re: Printing with Ninjaflex?

I do not have very good luck printing flexibles on the Makegear. The extruder setup lets the filament get away, and even with modified extruders I haven't had any sort of reliable luck. As airscapes mentioned, minimal retraction, and minimal speed changes are necessary. Our Prusas do good with flex...

Most notable on printers with moving beds. I know you like to r...

Re: Nylon

This bed did not really work for me any batter than glass and glue.. Maybe I didn't work at it long enough but Polymide tape works better for my non production environment. You also can't print anything that needs a hot bed (over 80) or the plate will warp.. Bed flatness is just in the stated tolera...

Re: Anyone have an Ultra One yet?
