Re: Raspberry Pi 3

Raspberrypi now has a RaspberryPi zero W version. The boards are $10 and are very small. They can be very hard to get though.

Re: In the middle of a enclosure build, need some advice

I run with a temp of 105° for ABS and get great result printing on PEI. I make cases for my customers and recently went to a new version that had tons of issues printing with the stock bed, and everything I could think of to help with warping in the corners. Not until I went to PEI with a bed temp o...

Re: In the middle of a enclosure build, need some advice

I went to Amazon and picked up an AC infinity air plate T3 $50. It's for electronic cabinets. The highest setting is 110°f and it usually holds the temp around 105°. Very simple to install and it comes with templates to cut the holes. My first enclosure, I went the route you are going, but it turned...

Re: Fix a gouged MIC6 Plate

If you can't get the scratch out completely, then you may just have to put a piece of PEI on it or flip it over. Using a stone will takes the high spots off, and leaves the valley. I was able to hand sand a similar scratch with mine, using very high grade sandpaper and a sanding sponge, but I wasn't...

Re: Ripple / Shadow effect on raised details?

Re: Extruder temp sensor issues and clogs?

http://makergear.wikidot.com/m2-hotend-assembly I guess there is no set screw for the older extruder. If you have an Multimeter you can check and it should read around 10k resistance around room temp. If you dont get a reading then you know for a fact its open and no good. If you get a infinity rea...

Re: Custom BBQ wifi controller

Thanks everybody.

I never thought that when I started getting into smoking foods it would lead me into electronics and finally into 3d printing.

Re: Extruder temp sensor issues and clogs?

The sensor shouldn't be loose. There is a set screw on the side of the extruder block. A temp sensor usually don't go bad, unless somehow one of the wires break, then your printer would not print. The temp sensor is made up two different types of metals and is welded together.

It's called an Heatermeter, and is freely available build if one has the knowledge to solder. I have been building and customizing ...
