Re: Extruder Acceleration - Holy Crap!

This is some incredible work zemlin. Great, great work. I'm an M2 user but lately I'm commissioning a scratch-built large-format machine, and have been banging my head against a wall with some heretofore unseen artifacts. After weeks of eliminating potential causes, one of the only things I left lef...

Concertina Upgrade

These are replacement end plates for a Concertina Connection "Jackie" concertina. I posted these as examples of Hatchbox Wood PLA over in the "insta's filaments that work" thread, but my domain just changed and those links are dead, and it may not have been the best place to show off the filament an...

Re: instas "filaments that work on the M2" thread

Followup to my XT-CF20 posting: It's not as stiff as PLA but more stiff than PETG, and it's strangely ductile. I've also lowered the bed temperature to 50C and will try slowing the print speed, as even with high tension on the extruder there are problems with slipping. Just ordered Proto-Pasta carbo...

Re: instas "filaments that work on the M2" thread

Filament name: Hatchbox Wood Filament vendor: Hatchbox It was hard to improve on the normal PLA settings. Observations: It doesn't look like wood until you sand it, but when you do what you have is , for all intents and purposes, wood. The print quality pre-sanding is excellent and prints seem to be...

Laminated Print Surface on New Stock M2?

Hello all, I see the pretty new website and new revision of the M2. I noticed the amber hue in the new photos and this line next to "build plate" in the specs: "Borosilicate glass print bed with laminated, replaceable print surface." I'm surprised the forum isn't a flurry with information about this...

Larger ePC Prints with Enclosure?

I'm wondering if anyone here has tried large ePC (or other PC) with an enclosure.

Even if I get perfect adhesion with ePC (or other PC) with my PEI bed at 105C, larger parts stress-relieve as soon as they're removed and are no longer flat. It may be enclosure time.

Re: larger Nozzle diameter to prevent clogs?

FYI, I did switch to .5mm exclusively a few weeks ago and haven't had any clogs yet running PETG, ePC, and PC-Plus. Prints are noticeably faster even with the same layer height due to the extrusion width increase, and it's nice having the option to do sparse infill with a .2mm layer height.

Re: How You Too Can Achieve Printing Nirvana

Jules, THANK YOU for the nudge toward PEI. My MIC6 plate is now converted and I think that now, finally, the printer is in its ultimate state. I feel that your post was justifiably enthusiastic. The polycarbonate variants are sticking to it more reliably than with any other surface. No hairspray. No...
