Re: A Hack to Bring Print Diameter Nearer to Spec

I haven't hit my height cap yet, but I've been slowly turning in my z-height for other things. Is there any other benefit to longer arms than simply eeking out that last .5" on the build plate?

Re: New Layer Fan design.

I went ahead and modified the file to fit the stock 30mm blower from Seeme. Here is the file in case anyone wants to give it a go. It's a nice fit.

Re: New Layer Fan design.

I'm gonna try this out. I'll need to modify it for the fans from seemecnc though, since I picked up 2 more of those. (wished I would have known about these panasonic ones for 4 bucks!) Quick question about your wiring. Did you solder them all to the same layer fan wire?

Re: Mhackney's Rostock Max

Hmm, a window causes enough temperature fluctuation to make a noticeable difference? That is good info, I might have to rethink my printer location. It's right next to the AC vent too, at the moment.

To the gentleman wondering about how to mount your hot end under the effector, here is a photo. You just remove the standoffs and slide it on down.

Re: First attempt at ABS - How do you guys do it?

Thanks for all of the tips, the changes suggested definitely have improved things. Printing at a higher temperature has definitely made a big difference I think. I still have issues with tall models splitting, but I think the main fix for that is enclosing the printer.

Re: First attempt at ABS - How do you guys do it?

I wonder with the advent of the new filament types like pte+ etc if abs will go the way of the dinosaur. Seems like abs is not temperature stable, and you have to accommodate it in so many ways.
If I decide to enclose my rmx will it be useful for other materials as well?

Oh whoops, I meant 230. Oy, 280 would be pretty hot. Sorry about that, I'll update the post. Haha! The default was 228, but I upped to to 230 because I like nice round numbers. :D

First attempt at ABS - How do you guys do it?

I've been printing PLA since day one. It's been good. Thought I'd try ABS. I printed something small, and it warped off the bed. Just curled right up and delaminated into pieces. I decided maybe the roll maybe was to blame, so i started a large dragon print thinking it would fail epically. It did fi...

Re: Deviation of average diameter of filament

I got a test sample from quantum 3d. Testing my calipers on it showed very little variation, which is good. Unfortunately I couldn't get a good print out of it. Maybe it has special temperature requirements or something but it didn't print the stuff I usually print very well at all.

Re: A Hack to Bring Print Diameter Nearer to Spec

I'm mounted under the effector as well. It's what all the cool kids are doing, we like to drop it low. You lose a little z-height but as 626pilot says, it's nice to see the hot end. Simply removing the stand-offs will allow it to slide down. You could get shorter bolts or just let them be long on to...

Re: A Hack to Bring Print Diameter Nearer to Spec

Just out of curiosity I pushed my printer to the edge manually, and it does not quite make it to the white line. I suppose that would be disappointing if you bought the printer to specifically hit that maximum diameter. However, good luck finding any other printer near the build volume of the rmx fo...

Re: Of Pink Elephants and Melamine Bonfires

Smaller prints are less time consuming. I can make the joint lines along overhangs and make designs that need no support. By eliminating support I get smooth surfaces with great cosmetic properties. I can make multiple colored assemblies. I can orient the layer lines for strength in places where th...

Re: Circular Bed Size

In Repetier and MatterControl there is a place you can specify that you have a round bed.
The radius of your bed is 11" or 280mm in metric. I hope that helps!

1.8mm filament

I picked up some cool silver filament, and it works in my printrbot, but gets jammed up in my RMX. It's 1.8mm which must be causing too much friction in the bowden tube. Any thoughts on this, or is it a lost cause?
