Read again. Martin from Bondtech said "Our reseller in Germany..." :D


Yes, I know, but I've seen it directly on the company's website (https://www.3d-drucker-experte.de). There is a logo 'Raise3D Official Distributor'. So you can get the full kit there. ;)

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

Very interesting. I did not notice, that there is an official reseller of Raise3D in Germany. Did I miss something?

Re: what setting for 3d850

As nobody else gave some feedback so far, I will do it here: This filament has become my favorite filament in the last weeks! It prints out very nicely and the parts are from excellent strength. I'm printing all types of parts from it, also mechanical parts for which other guys would usually take AB...

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

Is there a single extruder version? Or is it possible to remove the second motor to make it even lighter? The right side can of course be emptly of components that would make it a single version (left hotend occupied). How big interest is it for a single version? I'm interested in a single version,...

Re: Make changes available - rant warning

Vicky, maybe I'm wrong in that you never used the term 'open source'. But at least there were some promises from which we could expect more than we actually got. Here are only 3 examples from KS, there are most likely more, but I didn't do a full search:

Re: Make changes available - rant warning

John, I fully agree. One more point: At least in the beginning, R3D claimed to build an 'Open Source Printer'. And now, more than a year later, the only thing I can see is an outdated Marlin. No open hardware, no open LCD software. R3D, please look at companies like BCN3D or even Ultimaker. They hav...

Regarding the flex material: I didn't test it by myself, but others reported it works very well. Maybe the key is, how strong you tightened the thumb screw?

Re: auto z screw leveling

I also thought about this issue, some time ago. But it doesn't bring any advantage if we measure some distance to the hotend, imo. Instead we need to measure the distance to the tip of the nozzle. Maybe by some electrical contact, attached to the bed. I'm sure, the challenge would be to make this re...

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

Maybe this are copies, but the guys from Prometheus were definitely not the first doing this! In my opinion a low friction hotend is the critical point, either it should be PTFE (may or may not work) or it should have a coating like that from Micro Swiss. I'm aware that a stainless steel hotend like...

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

I think, the most practical way for dual extrusion (I mean with different materials, not just different colors) would be a dual X axis machine... But the alignment issue remains in that case. Alternatively, for some limited use this could be also interesting: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1926351...

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

@photoholic: I can tell you only from my point of view: The Bondtech extruders are the best of the best you can get for money - no early adopter junk! However, with the current Bondtech Mini extruder it may take a little effort to make dual extrusion working (a custom firmware could be one possible ...
