Absolute max print size

Just as the title says, is our M2's limited to the 8x10x8 build area or can we push it a little bit, I'm asking this because a) I'm at work and don't have my printer in front of me to check, b) because one of hte engineers at work wants to 3d print a robot attachment for a trade show, he asked me if...

Re: PLA breaking question

Sadly I've neglected to maintain humidity levels of that reel from gizmodorks, and just printed it, but still i didn't notice much difference in print performance, just know If I'm going to be inactive for more then a few days I need to cover the printer, the old v3a head got really clogged and coul...

Re: PLA breaking question

I don't think you 'need' to get rid of the rest of the roll, I just finished up a roll of 1.75 natural PLA, i hadn't used it for...maybe 3 months and it had snapped twice at the reel end of the guide and once at the extruder end, but I still used it and it printed just fine for maybe....20 test tile...
