Re: M2, new heater, fluctuating nozzle temp.

I ship a lot of fishing tackle to Canada and there's just no cheap way to do it. It's close to 30 bucks Priority Mail from the US into Canada for a 2 pound package. And that's bare cost with no wages added for the person doing the shipping. It's supposed to be fair trade between our countries, but ...

Re: world maker faire NY who is goin...

To all wondering, it took almost an entire 5lb spool. I bought a clearance one (lime green) from Ultimachine. I also had to make a table-mounted roller for it since the spool was too large to fit on the side of the M2. Wanna know a kicker? That was the second one. First one failed at NINETY GODDAMN ...

Re: world maker faire NY who is goin...

For what it's worth I did do a print that filled the M2's bed. It was a sand mold positive for a small gearbox. It weighed almost 2 kilograms when it was done and stood 6" tall, with something like a 7.5 x 9.5" footprint (I couldn't use skirt on the default settings without going off the bed). It to...

Re: world maker faire NY who is goin...

What would that even be? My M2 has been nothing if not startlingly reliable. Other M2 owners I've talked to in person can echo that. It's not the fastest -- the XY gantry printers take that. It's not the highest resolution -- the resin printers take that. It just works every. single. time. that I hi...

Re: world maker faire NY who is goin...

On other printers, I've seen no ooze at all from a 2mm retract with ABS. It is possible but requires a few things: 1) A very short hot zone. The printer in question used a Hexagon hotend, which has a relatively small hot area. 2) A very good thermal break with active cooling. Same Hexagon, uses a te...

Re: Going soluble - printing PVA

Next time you're dissolving it, put a small aquarium airstone in the container, and a little submersible aquarium heater. Keep the water 80-85F and constantly moving.

Re: Right extruder keeps clogging with this model

Woah don't do that. You'll bake contaminants in.

Get a roll of Taulman 618 and do a few cold-pulls with it. It cleans nozzles really, really well.
