Re: PETG failing to feed, any thoughts

Sorry! V3b nozzle.

Few more questions while I have your attention, since you rock!

Can the Makergear use Stainless Steel nozzles?

If I use a larger nozzle, will it help to print larger prints faster?

Also, what is difference in the V4?

Re: PETG failing to feed, any thoughts

Let me try that, thanks for the idea!

Short Run Plastic Enjection Molding

Got my M2 about 3 weeks ago, and my project is already on track!

My question is this: once I am ready to move to the beginning production stage, does anyone have any experience with getting mold/parts made?

Any suggestions? Any good companies to recommend?

PETG or ABS for parts I need to join? Best brand on Amazon?
