M3 cooler on the M2

M3Cooler50mm-1.jpg MG finally released the M3 cooler STL's so I thought I'd give it a try on the M2. I enlarged the cooler to 126% so it would fit the M2 stock 50mm fan and had to make a quick bracket to fit my modify extruder drive. The new cooler definitely localizes the air flow right at the noz...

Pinion Gear Wear

IMG_4325.JPG This is what four+ years of everyday running can do to an extruder steppers pinion gear.

Re: M2 nightmare with soft filiment

I redesigned the stock drive to have a hinge and use springs for tension (see http://forum.makergear.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=3283) and I never have to adjust tension when switching between any filaments anymore.

Re: Extrude stops extruding (not jammed), consistent temp issues (m2)

3a. If the platform thermistor cable shows no problem, then you need a new platform thermistor. I don't know if they're available separately or if you're in for a whole new assembly. You can get these separate you just have to ask for them as they are not listed on the site. (they were about $15 la...

Re: PETG your favorite brand?

I use eSUN PETG and it works awesome. There is an entire thread on here too on what settings to use.

I usually get it on Amazon from INTSERVO but you can get it direct to https://www.intservo.com (Will is a great guy to deal with.)

Re: M2 octoprint on Pi what to buy

Will using the pi as the interface while the print is running cause the printer to stop when the pi is busy with me using the UI? I guess I don't understand what your trying to do... Usually the whole point of using a Pi and Octoprint is to free up a main computer and just have a reliable system fe...
