Re: How to quiet Noisy Fans?

Lucky guys!! Mine extruder cooling fans are whistling like crazy! And on top of that they are singing even when not printing, which really really annoys me. The radial fan in the controller box is yet another story. It's soooooo loud that I have to replace it. And the funny story is that is over-dim...

Re: Project: Closed Loop Filament Sensor

Hmmm, nice and simple ...and could be even smaller with some re-engineering. Well done! I like the fact that it is truly a multi-purpose "sensor". It can 1st) check the continuity of the filament, 2nd) check the clogging and 3rd) the consumption. Though I think that the encoder wheel shoul...

Re: Bed took too long to heat - so I fixed the problem.

Wouldn't be just easier to use a relay? Preferable a solidstate and of course some resistors :-)
But, yeah a good design idea was to use the old "power source" as a trigger.

Re: Brand new N2 with unleveled bed

The bed is leveled and tested at the factory. Depending on where you are the printer may be shipped multiple times. Some times the bed will require truing after transport. ... Bull shit Brandon!!!

Re: Layer Offset after resume printing

So to make an advice. I would suggest you to buy a UPS quite a large one if your place is experiencing longer el. outages and if you want to finish a part in one go! But, as the UPS' tend to be very expensive the bigger they are the other option would be to buy a tiny UPS that last for a few minute....

Re: Layer Offset after resume printing

Agree with jetguy 100%. In addition to his excellent explanation... When you get a power outage the printer stops in one specific place over a part it's being printed. But since the hotend and the nozzle doesn't cool down immediately almost anytime the nozzle makes a huge blob of melted plastic in o...

Re: Printer Filament Monitor

Fixing it at different places won't affect its function, as long as you are using guiding tube (guiding tube is necessary part for it), since even on our side we have't design a seat for it. We will increase its cable to be longer so that you can move it to other place you want to install. cullymot...

Re: Buildtak problems - nothing sticks to it

If the buildtak doesn't have any adhesion from the very beginning when you start using this machine, you can shoot a ticket to make contact with us. No need Vicky! I don't think that I will ever use the BuldTak again. Even if you would send me a brand new one I would probably use it as a mouse pad....

Re: Buildtak problems - nothing sticks to it

So I bought a LokBuild an orange plastic sheet... and for me was an Epiphany. So far, using a BuildTak I've got troubles every single time I try to use it. Actually, as I already said, nothing sticks to the surface. If somehow the part sticked to the BT was because I applied a large amount of glue-s...

Re: Buildtak problems - nothing sticks to it

Actually could be a "simple" fiberglass plate no need for carbon. The key point here is epoxy resin. When heated becomes quite sticky.

I'm looking forward to test it with ABS, ASA and PETG. - I got PEI, but... PETG doesn't stick to it. Apparently this is a known issue. Also no luck with PLA (tempera...

Buildtak problems - nothing sticks to it

From the moment I got n2+ noting got sticking on my Buildtak. I was reading posts about how difficult is to detach printed parts from it... but in my experience it's oposit. So I tried all the usual tricks available on the internet; changing offset from the bed, preheating the bed (different tempera...

@walshlg You are right. But what use of a slicer if it is unable to make a decent support. The proposed solution could be actually a very easy fix for the problem of over-supporting & material wasting. Bottom line the only thing to be done is to give to a part a "support status" with a...
