Re: Bondtech BMG on M2

Yes, I upgraded my M2 with a BMG and an E3D. I use the metal motor mount flipped around and a replacement V4 single extruder mounting plate cut in half. I also replaced the stepper motor with a smaller one. I now am able to print with ninja flex without any problems vs problems with the original ext...

M2 REV D Upgrade Instructions?

I just got my 4 point spider and new Z top kit but no instructions. Is the final released version posted somewhere? The wiki page is empty and I can't find them on the tester thread. Its mentioned that they were emailed to testers.

Re: Using machineable wax filament

The machineable wax filament is difficult to print. I got a roll of the 1.75mm from machineablewax.com and gave up on it. It lifts and curls like crazy. Moldlay prints much better but is not that much easier to post-print process than PLA. Not sure what size your parts are but you might consider pri...

Re: Printing with MOLDLAY

Thanks for the link. Post pics when you get going. Yes, the size requires that I print the furnace in parts and then glue it together. Not a big deal since I'll need to remove the forms anyway after casting.

Re: Printing with MOLDLAY

On the tongs, you can buy them from budget casting supply or similar but they can get spendy. Brian's tongs are very cool. Looks like he designed them in a CAD package and had them fab'd in stainless. MyFordBoy has a nice combo set as well albeit lighter weight. Nice work on the burner. I have a nat...

Re: Favorite Print Surface?

I've been using PEI glued to the glass. Works well for PLA and ABS. After breaking the glass the other day, I stuck a build tak sheet on the replacement. It works too well. I'm having trouble getting PLA unstuck. Its back to PEI when I get a new piece of glass.

Re: Printing with MOLDLAY

Check out myfordboy's furnace build. Very well done. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HFaA218gT2k Brian's keg furnace is top notch but a little too big and heavy for my current needs. I'm currently building my furnace from a couple of propane cylinders. I'm printing the hot face mold in pieces with the...
