With those prices it could well be that they pay for the patent.

Re: ARTEMIS

There's currently an active patent (Stratasys I think) on heated chambers. You'll never see a commercial offering from any company other than them until that patent expires. Really innovative to use technology from 2 centuries ago to keep a small room warm and out of draft... Stupid USA patenting s...

Re: MetalMax Delta printer - belt catching on new linear rail - need advice please

Yes, I do not see why that would not work. You will probably need a similar construction at the bottom of each tower. That could interfere with how low your carriages can go, and therefore pose a limit to the max printable diameter. But for the rest it looks okay I think.

Re: Ziro brand ABS filament - Not recommended

Temps are: Bed: 110C, hotend: 220C I am not familiar with this brand at all, but I think sticking with this temp and expecting the same results as any other brand is not the way to go. You will need to explore more combinations of temperatures. Your spool could suddenly become a highly recommended ...

Re: PEI print bed surface experiments

Looking at the specifications (and safety warnings!) of this JBWeld product, it would make sense for it to be working great for glueing PEI. However I think I remember more people having tried it. It seems to loosen over time. The 3M glue sheets work fine, just apply dry. Because the glass and the P...

Hi Fellow Traveler (although I am not much of a traveler!)

Re: Z-Probe for Max V2? BLTouch or another option?

Depends on what you want really. I am not familiar with the BLTouch, but know that Repetier does not really do any auto calibration (besides the SeeMe branch that only supports the Boink-a-Probe Caliwhacker (not my invention!) The best way to do calibrations is using the tip of the nozzle as probe. ...

Re: Artifacts on high prints

With the printer turned off, slide each of the carriages slowly up and down the towers. Can you feel some irregularities in how smooth they slide perhaps?

Re: PCB smart effector and carriage adapters for Haydn Huntley's rods

I don't understand why these would be restricted to Haydn Huntley's magnetic rods and ball studs. I think it would not be a lot of work to fit the SeeMe barballs to the carriages. The idea of the tip of your hotend being the probe is appealing. FSR's do that, but introduce some error margin due to b...

Re: High strength filament recommendations?

Unless you need food safety, use the hardened steel. It has a better heat transfer coefficient (typically, there are so many kinds of steel that I could find you a hardened one with a worse one than a stainless, but E3D wouldn't have done that), and it is more wear resistant and cheaper. Price when...

You should use a steel nozzle, it is abrasive and will wear out a brass nozzle quickly.

Would you advise hardened steel or stainless steel (which is also very wear resistent probably?)

There is no autolevel nor calibration in Repetier firmware as far as I know... It can probe using FSR's but I found that pretty useless without a auto calibration routine (although it takes the hassle out of using a dial indicator). I tried calibrating a V2 using a dial indicator as wel (digital is ...

You should first calibrate the endstops by getting them as close to 0 as possible. Create a script to probe close at each tower. Then adjust your endstop screws a bit and home an rerun the script. If you want to reduce the offset. Of a tower, turn the screw clockwise. Or the other 2 towers counter c...
