Re: Favorite Print Surface?

Ship it with a can of hairspray. Of all of the solutions that I have tried, the trusty ole can of hairspray has by far worked the best for me. And if you are a single guy, shopping for hairspray is a great ice breaker, albeit odd, if you see a lass that catches your eye.

Wipe not clearing the build platform...help!

Ok, here we go. Been busy with my laser and building a new laser, so I have been away from my beloved M2 for the past few months(I did maintenance it every few weeks with some oil to feed the rails). I need to print some parts for my new laser design and the M2 started up and printed with relatively...

If i fiddle with a design that might work for my limited space and shoot it to you, mharter, would you mind taking a look at it and see if you can create it? (...

Re: Edges of part are lifting up

How do you cut your cardboard? Do you have any design files? I have a CNC knife table at work. I use ArtiosCAD (packaging specific) to create the dielines and cut them out. Any questions, just aks. I finally put this together :) It's housing my ONI right now, since it doesn't fit where the M2s are....
