Re: Materials printed on M2

Re: Z-axis knob

Dale, Thanks for the help. I've attached a picture of the parts I'm talking about. I've printed off a few parts. When my printer is inactive, the build tray falls to the lowest point possible. In this position, a screw on the bottom of it (the one holding the spacer that triggers the endstop) hits o...

Re: Z-axis knob

I also did not use the hot end/fans mounting blocks rubber feet, as I did not see this in the instructions. Should I use them?

Z-axis knob

Re: Buying the M2: Help me start out right

My M2 came in today. I also purchased the recommended software.

Other than what is in the instructions, any tips on me putting this thing together?

Re: Dual Extrusion

Does the V4 or V3b come with the M2? Yeah printing with different materials opens the doors for a lot, though it does present a few small problems. It would be nice to see multi-extruders that mix in benefits of the single-nozzle dual extrusion (cyclops) with multi-nozzle extrusion (for different ma...

Dual Extrusion

Hey guys,

Can someone share their experience with dual extrusion on the M2? Would like to get to this eventually. How easy is it to swap hot ends? Could I go ahead and buy the dual extrusion hot end and install it in my M2 when it arrives in january?

Re: Buying the M2: Help me start out right

So I think i'm sold and am going to buy one of these.

Any advice on retailers, how to get the best price / receive it the quickest?

Any advice on accessories? I'm planning on making a simple acrylic enclosure to keep heat in and moisture out, but will look in to way to make it a better environment.

Re: Materials printed on M2

What is the max temperature you are supposed to print with the M2? I saw 250*C accord to this - http://makergear.wikidot.com/m2 - but I have concerns if that is true due to the plastic used in the extruder. http://www.makergear.com/products/extruders - this says it uses a PEEK extruder which I would...
