Re: size accuracy and finish

well, I guess it depends on how far up into the bracket you had the hot end when the starting height was first set. If it was just flush with the top of the boss you have room to push it up farther so it doesn't run into the glass. I pushed the HE all the way up and snugged the set screw Then send t...

Re: size accuracy and finish

There's a lot to learn, but the truth is out there ... and close at hand, too. Exactly.. but weeding out the truth from the internet.. can be hit of miss! Will do as you suggest, and no, I hit the first part of that info but have not done the rest. This is no different than learning my first progra...

esun epa question

I did do a search but saw no real answer. Will EPA stick to the polyimide tape of the M2 Build plate, or does it need other things applied? In general, regardless of filament type, when I see reference to glue stick and blue tape, hair spray, abs slurry etc, is this in place of the polymide tape or ...

Re: Synthetic Grease vs lithium

For the newer machines they have made a change to the Z screw.. also did not receive any lubricant.. we maybe I had better recheck the box.. Clean the X and Y linear rails, and the Z leadscrew, of grease, then apply a fresh coat to each - a dot of white lithium grease in each of the long grooves on ...

Re: size accuracy and finish

So I found the other thread on the thin walled boxes while my boxes were printing. I created them 40x40 1.2mm wide and 3mm tall. I printed them using the S3D options of allow single extrusion walls and allow single extrusion fills and have been and continued working with .1mm height. All boxes are t...

Re: size accuracy and finish

Well No I have not set the set the actual diameter of filament or messed with the multiplier yet. In preparation for that put my roll of PLA in my new food dehydrator over night at 140F to make sure it is dry. I just rechecked my starting height and level. I am using a factory plate with the factory...

Re: Synthetic Grease vs lithium

Thanks Ed, that is my take on it as well. Prior to my current career in the IT industry I spent 13 years as an auto mechanic. ON these rails there is no build of heat, no high contact pressure and very tight clearances. A very low viscosity lubricant would seem to be what is needed.. White lithium i...
