This is part of the reason why I don't use tape and print directly on hot clean glass. I find tape tears off almost every print and sticks to the part. Too much maintenance and bother for me

After homing once, my experience is that the firmware ignores the endstop if you tell it to move to a negative coordinate, like -20, so it certainly doesn't stop moves off the platform. I've no idea why this is so, and when I get around to compiling my own firmware that's on my list of things to cha...

I designed a really simple flute that prints fast and makes noise. :) Also useful to play with "minimum time per layer" setting. I'm down to 3 seconds per layer when printing PLA with the fan on (slic3r's default is 15). http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:297867 http://thingiverse-production.s3.amazon...

You can disable the timeout in your start.gcode with M84 S0. Reenable it in your end.gcode with M84 S300 if you want. I do both, and also have a button for each in pronterface.

I print PLA and slice with slic3r, and have always just used the default of "Slow down if layer print time is below 15 seconds". I've been doing some tall slim models without infill and got sick of the wait, so I figured I'd try to push this. Right now I'm printing 100mm tall 6mm diameter spiral vas...
No, but it's definitely on my todo list!! I don't have anything lint free available right now, and I did actually notice that the roll was a little dusty... So that's probably it.
Hey, I printed a twisted vase as well today. I designed it myself in openscad for practice (which was actually easier than anticipated), and I ended up printing a much bigger version than I intended, but here's a picture (with a spool for reference). Diameter is 10cm, height 18cm, plastic from Color...
@jsc, both ketil and kefir were taken on github, so I had to revert to kefir- even... Dissapointed with that, but hey, that's what I get for not being an early adopter! :) @j-rod, thanks, glad to hear it's of help. I'm happy to receive input if there's other configuration settings that improve on wh...
I'll go ahead an post a link to my Slic3r settings for printing PLA on the M2 here as well: https://github.com/kefir-/M2-config There's also settings for Pronterface that set the right dimensions for the bed, and add 4 really useful buttons to calibrate (level) the bed: Cal Y- ,Cal Y+, Cal X+ and Ca...
