One option for the enclosure is to duct it so the circuit board fan brings in outside (cooler) air. Exhausting air warmed by the circuitry should actually help keep the enclosure warm.

Re: Favorite way to prep your bed surface for printing PLA?

I've been having excellent results with hairspray on the plane glass back of my factory bed. If I move things around to even the wear, I can frequently get a week or two of mixed use before needing to clean it off and recoat. I can do 6 or 8 medium sized prints in the same location before I have war...

Re: Heatbreak PTFE Tube Replacement

Thanks for the tip! It never occurred to me to check that when I'm messing with my hotends. I'm assuming you used this stuff:

Re: Feed Issues

Do a search. There should be plenty of info on ABS settings.

Re: Ringing?

I had ringing problems after a couple years when my belts had stretched/loosened. Tightening them definitely improved things a lot.

Re: M2 just stops printing/moving

I looked, and there aren't any instructions I could find that are specific to this. The thermistor & the heater are held into the hotend block by small set screws. Here are instructions from removing the hot end, (although it sounds like you already know how to do that): https://makergear.zendesk.co...

Re: M2 just stops printing/moving

Does it stop at exactly the same spot, or is it random. If it's random, I suspect a loose/busted wire someplace. If it stops at the same spot, that suggests there's something in the gcode that isn't right.

Re: Prusaslicer 2.x

Thanks! I've attached the config bundle. I'm not real happy with their system. I have no idea what is being exported, and whether it includes any proprietary info on some of my print jobs from the "Plater" tab. Because they store info & settings in four different places internally, it's not nearly a...

Re: Prusaslicer 2.x

After a lot of tweaking, I have a PS profile working reasonably well on my M2E. I started with Airscape's profile, but if I remember, his was set up for a larger nozzle. Mine is configured for the stock 0.35 mm nozzle. I'll see if I can figure out how to export it the next time I have PS up & runnin...
