Re: Replacement lever for cappuccino maker handle

That is awesome! I love it that you can fabricate a part to repair something in a matter of minutes (well...perhaps a lot of minutes). Thank you guys for the compliments. I enjoyed working with my son and making something truly useful. Print time was 15 minutes. probably 3 hours in design/draw/conv...

Replacement lever for cappuccino maker handle

My son drew this up and we printed it last night. Fit just right the first try! Wife was very impressed :D Beefed up design with fillets and extra ribs, should last longer than the OEM part. This little lever folds up to hold strainer in place while banging out the coffee grounds puck. Keeps you fro...

H-1 Mod Z-axis feet

Added these simple "feet"
It eliminated almost all the wobble and shaking of frame.
This along with adding rods across top.
Now the machine is rock solid.

Re: H-1 Mod X-axis motor idler

Hello Mike, you may not need to bother with spring idler if your belt wraps around motor pulley farther like mine with additional idler. Then use your slotted adjustment on right idler to fine tune the tension. just a thought. Mine sure is easy to adjust and forgiving now. Would like to see what you...

H-1 Mod X-axis motor idler

This simple addition really helped. Belt tension is not so finicky...seemed to be either to tight, then axis did not move easily OR to loose and the belt would jump teeth of pulley. Also added another idler on right side in a slot to fine adjust the belt tension. Plus bearings in place of stock plas...

Re: H-1 Mod- Z-axis cross bars with filament holder

Looking good! How is the frame of the H-1 holding up to the weight of the extra parts and filament? Have you found any problems with the bent rods twisting or bending? I have not had any trouble. Actually it makes the frame stronger. A lot less shake/wobble than without cross bars. Still get slight...

H-1 Mod- Z-axis cross bars with filament holder

Here is my latest mod.
New cross rods to strengthen frame.
Raised with extra bar clamps so I did not lose 1" of build height.
Rollers are electrical conduit with bearings, spool rolls really easily!

Re: Hot end plugged up

Squirting hot plastic again... woo hooo :)
Replaced nozzle and clear tube. Also put more tension on feed rollers, I suspect filament was slipping slightly so extrusion was not consistent.
