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...

Oh God that looks like a MF'er of a print (just watched the live stream).

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.

Re: So, what do we think about dual extrusion after a month?

For what it's worth, my dual-struder Ultimaker calls for some insane retraction when tool switching. They do 17mm retracts (on a bowden). When I get mine set up, I'm going to try tuning for 12-14mm retracts between tool changes, plus the wiper.

I've got one of the really old M2's ... back from the RAMBO 1.0 days and dual-PSUs. I've since upgraded to RAMBO 1.3 and 24v (before the official kit came out) but the rest of my machine has remained stock save a Viki I got from the MakerGear store. The problem I have comes from the E0 motor. The in...
