Re: Upgrading the HotEnd: Prometheus vs. E3D vs. ???

I would proceed carefully and not modify them at all. I've ordered well over 30 of the .4mm nozzles in the last year in 6 different batches and they have all been spot on. Did you get yours direct from E3D or from a reseller? If a reseller, I would raise the flag with them. If from E3D you might em...

Re: FABLAM !!

I agree, hence my interest. Bending the acrylic to pop-off prints is a great idea, although it probably costs some even-ness of the surface. Sooner or later you will get a bend that does not go away. And the temp acrylic can withstand without being weakened is about 60 degrees which is on the low si...

Re: Measured REAL temp

That is an idea, and my thermocouple is really small so it might fit. But the whole point is that we all have to use the same method, else it will still be guessing if we exchange temperature settings ;-)

Hmm, never saw that article on the website before so I guess it is pretty new. Would like to know what it is exactly, and if it works as intended. In my experience laminate gets damaged pretty easy when removing parts. In that regard it might be rather expensive.

Re: Recalibration after a 'crash'...?

I used to be within .02mm when doing the tower calibration routine, and now I'm off by .2mm in some spots. Check the firmness of the distanceholders under the bed. Probably one is squeezed a bit. I assume us use the glass to print on, so that is probably pretty even. In my view the endscrews are ju...

Measured REAL temp

So, after having seen many people tell about hotend temps, and seen many discussions about the difference of what a "guessistor" thinks the temp is, and what it in reality is, I ordered a simple thermocouple on bangood and did some measuring. I usually print ABS at 235 C set temp. I hung t...

Yes, I have positive experience with ABS juice. It did the trick for me without having to use expensive kapton or PEI surfaces.

Re: Under-extrusion on tall prints

OK I am beginning to suspect that my nozzle is clogged. If your nozzle is clogged, you would notice your filament slipping in the ezstruder. That usually makes a clicking sound and you can actually feel the filament going backwards after a pressure buildup. If that is not happening you probably hav...

I can add several send to position buttons in the next version (which will also depend on the bed diameter and z height). I will probably be able to do a couple updates in about a week.

Re: "Dauerdruckplatte" PEI coated Aluminum bed

I know that aluminium transfers heat pretty well, but would it be possible that the Onyx reports the temp at the onyx bed, while the temp at the PEI surface is just not there yet? I have no experience using PEI, but if I would have to print at 130 degrees I would not even want that experience... Lat...
