Re: Questions for Guillaume about 3.1 upgrades:

I have another question.

I notice that the upgrade kit comes with a new extruder drive wheel. Is the diameter of this the same as the existing one? Will we need to update the firmware to use the new wheel?

Many thanks.

Re: E3D konversion set - TWO version

Satoer, Mate, trust me I tried everything. It was weeks of stuffing around with every conceivable option. There is not much wrong with the Felix hot end. The main reason that they created the E3D was for very high temperatures where the PEEK melted (or didn't perform well). Most of us don't print ov...

Re: E3D konversion set - TWO version

I have used the V5, and never had a jam anymore. But, in my experience I needed to heat the hot end a lot hotter. This might be the cause of a wrong thermister setting.(so the real temperature is the same). Now I'm testing the E3D V6, same performance till now. I've released the designs in my signa...

Re: E3D konversion set - TWO version

After a lot of use and MANY problems with printing PLA using version 2 I have moved back to the original Felix extruder. The version 2 extruder mount does NOT have enough cooling efficiency and the PLA gets stuck after a while. This is definitely caused by insufficient cooling. I tried enlarging the...

Re: Taulman Nylons

Even though it is not suppose to absorb as much moisture, I found that you still have to thoroughly dry it out (about the same as 618). So the only advantage to bridge is that it will actually stick to something.

Re: Replaced my Extruder gear

I had problems with the allen key in the grub screw. Turns out the allen key was a bit worn, so I cut off the end and it's all good.
