Re: Rostock Max for Sale

I am thinking it might be better to take it apart and split it up into several packages. I believe that would bring the shipping cost down quite a bit.

Re: Tips for Nylon printing without a heated bed

I picked up some cheap felt with a sticky backing on it from my local Wally World last night. I started experimenting with it tonight when I got home from work. I have yet to have a print fail. I'm getting no edge curl or separation from the bed even on large prints. The only problems i am having wi...

Re: Getting Nylon to stick to the bed.

Ok, so i've been experimenting and i have discovered that, plain felt taped to the bed works really well for me. Plus its super cheap!

Getting Nylon to stick to the bed.

I started experimenting with nylon a few days ago and for the most part i like it alot. The one problem i am having with it is getting it to stick to the bed. I have tried glue sticks, tape (white and blue), cardboard, double sided sticky tape, cotton fabric, canvas, and burlap. i have also tried ha...

Re: Charge-out Rate

This is none of my business but I was wondering why you couldn't find enough work even with lower charges. Would you say that location played the biggest role? Location was a factor, at the time that i started my shop the local economy had just lost the last of its major manufactures. The area beca...

Re: The "PartDaddy" Large Format 3D Printer

That is cool, I have been debating on building an all metal max 2x the size of the original RS-Max. This is just insane though.

One of my thoughts would be to mount the tip of a mig welder for the hotend and actually make large metal parts with this beast.
