Re: Second Extruder Motor not working

I've proven it's not the motor itself by connecting that motor to E0 and extruding just fine.

Second Extruder Motor not working

Hey guys, I'm tinkering with a dual extruder setup. Finally got my second hotend in and was going to do some testing, but when I go to retract/extrude my second motor just kind of vibrates and doesn't turn at all. I've tried tinkering with motor currents in Marlin, but it hasn't changed the result.....

Re: Smoothie M2

I've seen this print crazy fast. I'm assuming that quality is still a factor when going so fast?

Very Hot Heater Cartridge Wires

Any ideas what would cause this? It was not touching the heater block, the wires just get hot.

Re: Semiflex (same makers as Ninjaflex)

I printed two iPhone cases for my friend's kids and one was in Ninjaflex and one was in Semiflex. It was really hard to tell the difference between the two, but I wasn't really doing a scientific comparison. They both flexed about the same. I agree that when it's solid, it's probably has hard as car...

Re: I am seriously wanting to purchase the MakerGear M2

The other think I don't like about the Zortrax is that they're forcing you into using their material and I don't really...

Semiflex (same makers as Ninjaflex)

I had been playing with Ninjaflex for a bit and results were spotty. Most of the time it would get wrapped around the extruder gear. After I learned retraction was it's enemy I got some successful prints, but they weren't ever clean and it would still usually end up wrapped around the extruder gear....
