Re: removing and replacing nozzles

Invest in some eSun cleaning filament and use it between every material change and every so often of you never change material and you will never have to remove a nozzle until it is worn out.

Re: files

Tom, what are the file extensions on the files you have? What are the 3 letters after the dot in the file name? The extension tell determines what software can edit the file to make changes. If we do not have the proper software the file can not be changed.

Re: Questions from a new owner (of old M2)

Don't own a Prusa yet but from what I can see my M2 is like the big cast iron table saw they used to have in shop class or the one Norm has! The prusa is a nice aluminum table saw. S3D works, there is no license charge after buying it. I think the older 4.01 version has less issues but from what som...

Re: connect leftover filaments

If you are standing there when a roll runs out and your prepare, you can follow it with a new roll and not miss a beat. Well there may be a couple mm of under extrusion if you don't get the new filament into the drive right as pervious piece goes from the drive gear and stop. I cut the end of the ru...

Re: files

Hi Tom, what slicer are you using? The normal process to create a printable file from scratch is to use a CAD program to make your 3d model, export that model as an STL, then import the STL into the slicer software, and finally slice it and export the gcode. The gcode is what is sent to the printer ...

Re: Help with the fans

Knowing the printer model and revision would be helpful. MG had some pictures of the machines..

Re: Heat Insert Technique?

As I said earlier, I do this for large threads all the time. To fit this project, I need 4-40 threads, and they have to withstand multiple assembly/disassembly cycles in the hands of people who think that if tight is a good thing, tighter must be even better... Yeah I figured that was the case..Hop...

Re: Heat Insert Technique?

Have you tried just taping the plastic?? I have tried tapping PLA+, PETG , Nylon and ABS. ABS by far cuts the nicest, using a tapered tap and cordless drill and some compressed air as the tap is run in and back out. Attached is a part I have made a few hundred of and it is very fast an easy. 2020081...
