Re: My own printer design, and it´s huge! Need feedback

I´ve redesigned large parts of the printer, now I use 2 Gates 9mm GT3 3M-Belts per axis. The ball screws need more parts to run than expected (+housing for lubricating and play-free adjusting, fixed bearing, floating bearing), that´s something I can´t do sufficient with printed parts. Now, I´m print...

Re: ESUN flexible filament

Hi livingstereo I´ve encountered this problem a while ago with colorfabb pla/pha-filament which is a bit softer, too. There are 2 tricks that may help: - Canola oil Rub a bit of canola oil at the first few cm of your filament. The oil will rest inside the nozzle and provides less friction. - More po...

Re: How to change X axis home location.

I have 2 possible solutions for you.

Nr. 1
You can try to make the X - axis-carriage - "wing" which enters the endstop a bit larger ( maybe simple tape is already enough)

Nr. 2
Print a new holder for the endstop, so that it comes closer to the carriage ;)

Re: My own printer design, and it´s huge! Need feedback

It´s going on: Here is my extruder design: Extruder 1.JPG Extruder 2.JPG Extruder 3.JPG Extruder cut.JPG I´ve decided to use a direct drive extruder, it seemed to risky for me to use a bowden setup, I think the length of the bowden tube would be a problem. I want to use the MK8 drive gear from Repra...

Re: Hot-end fan is not working

Hi Robot ;) You can connect the wires to the power supply input terminals. Just be carefull, you get easily copper debris when you remove the wires from the terminals, better look twice before it puffs again ;) . Of course, you can´t control the hot end fan anymore, it´s always on. It´s only switche...

My own printer design, and it´s huge! Need feedback

Hello folks I want to build my own, self designed 3d-printer, based on Felix-parts (codename: MOAP) First of all, I´m (not yet) and engineer, I´m "just" a mechatronic, so I have some knowledge about mechanics and elektronics. I´m sure this design isn´t perfect, and it will never be because I can onl...

Re: Hot-end fan is not working

Hi robots inc. You´re lucky that your board is still intact after the "magic smoke" appeared. You don´t need to get a new board, the hot end fans can be connected directly to the 12V main power wires from the power supply. The fans from the Felix 3.0 are rated for this voltage. That´s even better th...

Re: Y motor become hot

While 55 °C isn´t too hot for a stepper as far as I´m informed, you can try to reduce the motor current by adjusting the trimmers for the stepper motor drivers on the mainboard. This will also reduce the temperature of the motor but it will decrease it´s torque. If you reduce it too much, your motor...

Re: Photogrammetry with Autodesk 123dcatch

Simplify3d is basically a great slicer, but it still has some major flaws and some bugs. The software generates quite clean and logic G-Code with far less unnecessary rapid travel moves than Slic3r does. The worst thing is that they only offer one single infill pattern (line infill) which is the fas...

Re: PET+ Filament

Looks great, and it´s cheaper than T-Glase.

Did you try to print more solid objects, not only single wall?
How strong/stiff is it compared to PLA?

Did you have any curling issues because the fan was off?
