Re: Oh For Heaven's Sake!

I love UPS (not the shipper). Uninterruptable power supply.

Re: Oh For Heaven's Sake!

So, if the USB communication is an unlikely candidate, what happened to Jules's print? Any of the firmware experts able to confirm that: SENT: M105 WARNING: Firmware unresponsive. Attempting to force continue... is not a catch all error message and really means a communication error? Maybe the firmw...

Re: Does anybody want to sell your Makergear M2?

I would be interested in buying a non-functional M2. I'm looking for the mechanical setup. The more functional it is the better price you could get. Things I don't need to work are the power supply, electronics, hot end, stepper motors, cables. Would like the mechanical parts to be in good shape. 3D...

Re: Is printer speed really held back by CPU?

Re: High temp extruder?

What is the highest temperature that can be used with the V4 with PTFE liner?

I have some material that likes 265 to 275 degrees C. Can I get a V4 with the liner and replace the liner with a spacer material and get higher temperatures that way?

Re: 420 bake it

Yes. This confirms my decision to wait for the all metal V4. I guess I'll check back in a few months.

Thanks for the info.
