Re: Energy Consumption

I did some quick test tonight.... Just turning the printer on I was drawing 135 Watts/1.1 Amps Turning on the Extruder (set to 215 Degrees) it was at about 315 Watts/2.5 Amps as it was coming up to temp. Once it came up to temp it level out about 290 Watts. Then turning the Bed on (set to 60 Degrees...

Re: Materials printed on M2

That's awesome. Out of the box settings with the M2 & S3D? Yeah I've had this M2 for maybe 5 months and I just recently started playing with S3D settings just to try to learn a little more about 3D printing. Up till now I load up a model select one of the stock setting and hit print and everything ...

Re: Materials printed on M2

I had a sample of Zen Toolwork's Dark Wood Filament I received with there flexible stuff I ordered so I gave it a shot. What better to try than a treasure chest. chest-1.jpg This first picture is how it came off the printer. I printed this with a .35 nozzle running the stock med. setting in S3D. (it...

Re: M2 part failure, HELP!

I was just looking at build pictures that helifrek had posted a link to in another thread and his Extruder Motor Mount is totally different so it looks like MakerGear is on top of things and have all ready addressed the hole/cracking problem.

Re: I have officially joined the community!

A good thing to do before its to late is to print back ups of your Extruder Motor Mount and Filament Drive (there are actually beefed up versions on Thingiverse that are an improvement over the stock ones.) It's actually not a bad idea to have spares of all of the printed parts, files can be found h...

Re: 40mm Fan CFM? (need replacement)

Just a follow up encase someone else ever has to replace a fan. The new fan I used sounds like it has a higher CFM (pushes more air) that the stock one. If you change a fan do pay attention to your next few prints as you temp setting may need to be changed. I started a print using the same setting I...

Re: M2 part failure, HELP!

Yeah that hole is a common weak spot where they always break, I think it's there to allow access to one of the mounting screws either way they should fix this problem. Try superguleing the crap out of it and you should be able to at least print a new one. Personally I when with this beefed up versio...

Re: 40mm Fan CFM? (need replacement)

32.4 haha i dint think there is any way you going to get that out of a 40mm fan. Thats about what a 80-90mm fan puts out. Sounds like some marketing bs to me. Like jdacal said, 7 seems right so any where in there. Yeah now that you mention it the bathroom fan I just made an airbrush spray booth out...

40mm Fan CFM? (need replacement)

So I stuck a screwdriver in my 40mm Fan last night and sheared off a few blades and I'm trying to source a new one locally to get back up running asap. Does anyone know what the CFM's of the stock fan are? I found a few options locally.... both are 12v but but one says its 7.7 CFM and the other is 3...
