Thanks for the supplied STL's Guillaume
I'm printing them at this moment in ABS and using slic3r.



I already did an emergency modification (cut and ripped off the air duct).

Is there a a possibilty i could get the STL for the airduct too ?

already finished part :

Do you use inkjet sheets? Do you get any warping?

Yes i did have some warping. Plus the sagging extruder during printing did not help either. But i was able to fit the parts.
The sagged PLA counterpart is a lot more deformed then the little ABS warping i encountered.
Lets hope the ABS last a bit longer. Cant just keep printing spares and replacing them.

I used capton tape with hairspray : a vintage 5 years old bottle of L'Oréal Paris Studio Line Invisi'FX Spray Super Strong.
Back from the days i still had enough hair to spray :-)

Here are the STLs for the base.
Extru_base_v10_F2_0.STL
Extru_base_pt4_V3_F2_0.STL

On the electronics board there is a soldering jumper.

When you remove that the voltage to the main fan will be 12V. Now with the jumper on it is approx 5V.

Kind regards,

Hi can you show an actual picture of the change of wiring setup? Do we just move one wire (pos +) or both (+ and -) ? thanks.

:(

Now I have some sagging in the extruder. Good thing I printed replacement parts.

It seems that these printers are not capable of printing anything other an PLA. That's a bit disappointing.

I'll have to try and see if I can get the extruder parts printed out again in ABS from somewhere.

No I disagree, I've been printing ABS no problem, however I did mod the fan to 12V first and I also put some insulation under my build plate.

I did get the sagging y-Axis, however this happened on when I was printing PLA, it was due to me setting the Y-Axis motor current too high which was causing the motor to run hot.

But I'm happy with the ABS printing ability, I haven't tried nylon yet but have some samples that I'll have a go at.

so what are you printing the ABS on? Every attempt on every setting I have tried, leads to warping. The best I got was 110 degree bed (on kapton).
