You can not depend on electronics or circuits to be the fire shut off. The only really approved way and its UL listed is a thermal fuse mounted to sense over temperature and positively break by mechanical means, the power to the heater. Think toaster, coffee pot, space heaters and the like. A UL lis...

I need a dual machine like I need another hole in my head..... but bigger prints.... bring it on.3DPrintingEgg wrote:I guess I am not alone in wishing for a bigger print bed over dual extruders. LOL.
But hey, I love the Makergear M2, so I will probably still pony up for a M3 soon.
Does anyone out there have a model of the M2? I am going to design an enclosure and It would be helpful to have a model. So if someone had a model or a real M2 where are you located and do you plan on seeing it in person? There are dimensions published on the website over on MakerGear and more than...

If the spring is applying tension to the screw it should not loosen. I do not have that sort of bed on mine, speaking from experience on other machines.
All 3D printers take some time to learn. 3D printing is not the answer for every project. This Forum is a great resource for the MakerGear. At one time I had another very well known brand, also made in USA. The build quality of the M2/M3 gives it a advantage over the other brands. It just works. The...
i have always said that 3d printer of any make and model need a secondary, independent overtemp shutdown. i have looked for small thermal switches before but like insta, i have not been able to find any with a high enough temp. i am actually surprised you dont hear about more accidents like this ha...
If I had a concern and I do not because my printing is done away from any combustibles I would wire in a Thermal fuse in series with the extruder heater. Non- resettable one time. Oops I see insta already suggested. It could be lower rated than the heater temp, just mounted close by and not on it. T...
It was a surprise to me also, and I had purchased the Book! I was using Fusion 360 but as I noted elsewhere on here it was slow as it requires internet access and then the constant updates. I found this ViaCAD 2D/3D V10 and it was easy to use and not very expensive, see my "other" post on here. I d...
