Re: Polymaker PolyWood Test

Hah, nevermind about the 40% speed first layer for ePC, I chunk of Zebra plate just came off with a print. I'm going back to 100%.

Re: Polymaker PolyWood Test

Hey Tim, since you're taking a look I'll say that I just yesterday decreased the first layer speed to 40%. I base my settings on what people do in this forum (of course), but I don't understand why people seem to be doing full speed first layers with ePC. Yesterday I had a print start to fail while ...

Re: Securing your bed: Binder clips, none, or other?

I just recently (two days ago) got to trying ePC and love it. I'm going to reprint mine with that too. The PETG softening hasn't been an issue for me runnign just PLA and PETG but that's obviously not going to be the case going forward with ePC. By the way, this is off topic but ePC seems to me to b...

Re: Polymaker PolyWood Test

It does look more like pottery in the pictures, but as is usually the case the pictures don't look right. In real life these prints look completely matte (no glossiness).

Polymaker PolyWood Test

I got a free sample of PolyWood from Polymaker at the NY Maker Faire last fall (http://www.polymaker.com/shop/polywood/). Being I had an unexected day off today (snow) I finally tried it. Initially used the same settings I use for PLA but then increased retraction to 2.1mm (from .9). This is my firs...

Re: Verbatim PLA

Interesting stuff, jsc, as for me, I print white almost exclusively. Lately I've been having layer bonding issues and can only seem to get a viable print with no bed fan at all. But I've had good eSun white PLA prints before so I'm not really convinced it's the filament, just looking for an easy fix...

Re: Verbatim PLA

Wow, Verbatim is making filament, cool! I didn't know. No I haven't tried, but I'm starting to get annoyed with eSun filament and coming to the conclusion that it's worth paying more for the absolute best quality material, whatever that happens to be ($50/Kg is about my limit). I was using Ultimachi...

Re: Securing your bed: Binder clips, none, or other?

Hi all,

There's this too: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1166497

I've been meaning to put up a video that would convey just how easy it is to deal with, the pictures don't quite do it. Binder clip free and very happy.
