Re: Length of a new spool? Determining amount of filament le

in simplify 3d after you select prepare to print in the top left corner it will tell you the length and weight of the plastic required. When you get a new roll weigh it .

Re: Length of a new spool? Determining amount of filament le

when you want to know how much is left throw it back on the scale.

S3d tells you how much you need for the print.

Re: First post. My modded m2 ServoFi'd

I don't understand. You replaced the stepper motors with servos (presumably modified for continuous rotation)? How does that even work, I didn't think you could get enough accuracy with servos. These are not RC car servos. These are brushed DC servos with encoders. They always know where they are. ...

Re: Makergear Z Knob

Maybe I am missing something. Why do you need the metal insert? There's a little metal collar inside the knob with a set screw that lets you lock it onto the Z-axis rod. I get its there. I have been working on a magnetic cluch system that will stop the z axis from falling. I have just been tapping ...
