I have most of it figured out and have each nozzle printing the correct part. I have T0 printing the engraved plate with le...

Was reading the dated post and was interested in something like the zebra-plate described. Link is not active any more. Anyone know of something similar or better?

Bed Dropping

I am having issues with the bed dropping during a print and creating a bird nest. I have an early M2 and it was a reliable workhorse for years. No issues. A little over a year ago, I did a major upgrade to all current hardware and firmware. Not long after that, this issue started. I worked with Garr...

PETG fff

Would someone who is successfully printing with PETG mind sharing their fff? I saw a post in 2015 but was wondering if things have evolved.

Much appreciated.

Re: Fliament for outdoors

Thanks for the feedback.

I'll look into the PETG. These are fairly large parts. 4" x 4" x 1" approximately.

Jules, I've been out of the loop for a while. What is "insta"?

Fliament for outdoors

I purchased my M2 in 2013 and was very active for several years with PLA. The M2 has been an incredible little tool; very well made and essentially no issues. I have been away from it now for several months and configuration is a bit fuzzy in my mind. :D All my previous printing was in PLA. I need t...

Re: Rhino Plugin Bolt Gen

I downloaded, placed the file in the Rhino plugins folder, and ran tools/options/plugins. Boatmen does not show up to select and install even though I have display all selected.

Any ideas what I'm not doing?
