Changing a M2 from 1.75 to 3.0 mm Filament

Can anyone give me a comprehensive parts list to use 3 mm filament on the M2? I don't mind spending some money for a turn key change over. If MakerGear has one for sale I can not find it on the website or a complete list of parts to buy.

Re: 3mm options

So where is the file for the part to be printed out? Its really not that big of a hassle. It's printing 1 part, undoing 2 screws, removing the old part, installing the new printed part with the 3mm hotend. Then set the filament diameter in your slicing software to 2.85mm (or whatever you measure it ...

Re: Finally got my own!

Seems like a no-brainer. I dont regret my 1am purchase of eSUN black PETg. Unfortunately I won't be able to play next week, I have STEM training upstate =D. Next year I'm teaching a middle school Design and Modeling class with Autodesk. Guess who's going to be asking a lot of questions around here....

Re: Looking for parts to make CNC plasma table

I thought you already had some stepper motors? You will also need to either build or buy a pretty hefty power supply. Don't go by the motor voltage you need much higher voltage. You will need motor drivers and then usually a Mach III controller the older ones required a working parallel port compute...

Re: Looking for parts to make CNC plasma table

Then there is the THC (torch height control ), you will maybe want to add. The other issue is the plasma cutter you will need to use with the table. Not all plasma cutters can be successfully be triggered remotely and then often they interfere with the electronics. Its a fun project, but lots of lit...

Re: Looking for parts to make CNC plasma table

Having owned the Cadillac of plasma cutters the PlasmaCAM I know a little. It was neat to run but I got tired of the plasma dust and handling the steel. It seems that the Mach III controller is kind of the default for homebrew plasma cutters.

Re: New member of the MakerGear family...

Thanks everyone! Looks like the time frame is significantly less than expected... I just received order notice of the printer being ready for pick-up. Unexpected! Would have headed out this afternoon but the work emergencies take priority. Tomorrow i'll head out early afternoon. Thought I had two m...
