Re: The MakerGear Website - input requested

I live in Canada, and would really prefer to order parts directly from Makergear when possible, but with how insane the shipping rates that the site offers, I pretty much avoid buying anything from makergear unless its absolutely not available any other way. For example, I went to purchase an X-Y ca...

Requesting guidance with wiring up PT100 board

Tech support with ultimachine just gave me the wiki from e3d and thats for a ramps board which I'm having a difficult ...

I saw a post about this today on one of my RSS feeds and thought it might be worth posting.

If it had already been posted, my apologies.

Suggestions wanted for effective Rambo cooling

the filtration and heat regulation setup that I'm working on will be taking case air and cooling it back down to ambient (outside the enclosure) temperature and then routing it directly into the electronics enclosure where it will cool the board and then exit into the case. My question is, where sho...

Re: Has anyone changed the fan in their power supply?

yes it should. Did you confirm that the voltage of the noctua is the same as the original one? Also, if its more than 2 wire, just confirm that you're hooked up to the correct wires. Both my noctua fans dropped in.

Re: Looking to purchase M2

you're correct, those are the specs for the printer, more or less. But what I meant was, which specs are you hoping to confirm, as in which ones are the critical ones that you need to be true for you to deem the M2 "worth the money"?

might help to post up the file, and the criteria you are looking for: ie. layer resolution, nozzle size (if smaller than the stock 0.4mm), speed, etc. the parameters that your looking for confirm on.
