Re: How long can you keep filament

for the most part, if you can keep your filament stored at relatively low humidity, it will last a while... i have filament that 3 years old, that i recently used... and it was all good. i've had filament break down in less time... and i think it has noting to do with the storage temperature, but mo...

Re: Excellent Filaments Resource - Blog

follow up on the shaxon filament... I did finally get a reply from SHAXON on their metal infused pla density. the density is 1.24 g/cm3 which is the same as plain ole PLA. so like eSun's Bronze filament, there is very little actual metal content. I confirmed their density they gave me by actual weig...

Re: Filaments that play nicely together in same nozzle

Here is what i do. when going from one type of filament to another, i will use cleaner filament at the temperature of the previously loaded filament or perhaps a couple of degrees higher to make the old filament more 'liquid'. once i have purged out the old filament successfully using the cleaner fi...

I used it a few times when i was making many copies of a very small print. it was limited to the size because of the fixed distance between heads...having the ability to have the heads at much wider distanc...

Re: possibly failing mosfet?

I've been looking into some large format 3d printers recently... but noting really floats my boat at a cost i am willing to pay. i've been toying with the idea of building my own. lots of stuff out there though... a few here run multiple m2's and are very happy. best place to learn about a printer i...

Re: possibly failing mosfet?

i would preheat thigns, and watch the graph, and move some wires around. also just monitor it while it is just idle and preheated. if its a bad wire / connector, you should be able to reproduce it by wiggling wires. if its a bad thermistor, should go wonky while idle and preheated. i don't wanna sca...

Re: ABS prints are slightly bent.

Well the main reason I am using ABS is because that's what I have been using. So it's what I am familiar with. I WAS a bit ABS fan.... i'm hooked on PETG now.. give it a try.. i would opt to print a large print with PETG over fighting ABS. I've not tried solvent welding with it yet though, PETG is ...
