Re: Product Design in Los Angeles

Very cool! Fellow Industrial Designer here. Looking to do the same thing as you and start my own studio, but I am still a year or two off.

If you are not already familiar, check out www.coroflot.com. Great site to get exposure and to also find work.

Re: New and different dual extruder idea

Tim!!! This is great work! My BBP1S arrived last week and I just dove into solidworks to start planning out my machine. I am going to go with a fresh build as I would like to have a printer with a larger build area. (I love my M2 Dual just the way it is, prints better than any other printer I've see...

Re: Glowforge laser printer

Folks interested in a laser cutter, check out the openbuildlogs 2.0 laser. I am getting ready to fire my version of the design this weekend. 40 watt laser with a 600 x 400 cutting area. Laser specific DSP and I did it all for right around $1600. If people are interest, I will start a separate topic ...

Re: Where to purchase V4 nozzles

Thanks!! Got them ordered. Sometimes I can be horrible at navigating websites. I am much better with technology that manufactures things!

Thanks again.

Where to purchase V4 nozzles

I am in need of a new nozzle fairly soon. I looked on the website and only found the V3b nozzles. I have one at home and compared it to the V4 and the V3b is definitely a little larger (top to bottom). I emailed support, but haven't heard back (I imagine they are super busy assembling and designing ...

Re: Using a Mac for S3D and Printing

I have run S3D from both my Mac and my Win7 machine. Both worked great sending prints over USB. No issues.

Re: New and different dual extruder idea

There is actually plans for a dual carriage bukobot on their website: http://bukobot.com/creating-a-dual-x-carriage-bukobot. firmware changes and all. I must say I had not considered parking the nozzle on top of a $2 egg-beater blade. "When I get to it" is always a limitation, but I hope I can see ...

Re: New and different dual extruder idea

If you go for two separate heads, why not have them on two separate belts? as far as I can see, you can put two belt drives in parallel (add one behind the current one) and have one carriage with longer extension backward.

Re: New and different dual extruder idea

Are you talking about something similar to this? https://www.bcn3dtechnologies.com/en/ca ... cn3d-sigma

My next project was a dual x carriage 3d printer to park the non active extruder off the build platform.
