Re: tenative test for mesh leveling

I'm just happy that this feature is finally getting into Marlin. It's been fantastic on the Smoothieboard, but it's a bit over the top to insist that everyone needs to replace their entire electronics board and firmware just to get grid-based correction. But when you think about all the posts on th...

Re: PLA Filament cracking when sitting in printer too long?

I'm not a big pla user but, Inland (eSun) pla did that a lot to me when i was using it for a project. I didn't have that problem with other brands i had on hand.. but.. maybe i was just lucky.

Most hybrid stepper motors are rated for an 80c teperature rise. some are just 80c that is pretty darn hot... personally i don't like to see them above 70c, just to have a sa...

Re: Esun black petg kicking my hiney

Several even coats of hairspray, sprayed on the glass while it is cold, works pretty well. I had really good luck doing the hairspray over Kapton tape, with bed temp of 85°.
