Re: How do I know if I got a printer with V2?

V2 hotend have 7 cooling fins vs V1 that has 6. Thanks. I counted 7 cooling fins so I must have a V2. I'm curious as to why I don't have the sprint applied to the bed height adjustment screw and I'm wondering what other "fixes" I might be missing. I guess it won't be too much trouble to t...

Re: Buildtak

I just looked at their site and I don't see one that is sized for the N2, maybe they didn't update their site yet? What size did yours end up being and how much did it cost? Thanks!

Re: Buildtak

Wow, I didn't expect so much emotion/controversy on a forum for 3D printing. I am new to 3D printing and I am hoping that I can learn a lot from the various users and posts. I understand that different people will have different experiences and this is to be expected with the wide range of variables...

Re: Filaments always seem to be out of stock

100% agree with jmp. I wanted to buy 6-8 rolls of filament and wanted to group the thing to save on shipping costs. Because the store inventory seems to always be lacking, I didn't order anything and now (months later) the other colors are still not in stock, there is no free shipping anymore, AND t...

How do I know if I got a printer with V2?

I just got my printer yesterday and I want to know how I can tell if I got a printer that is equipped with all "fixes", like the V2 hotend. Before anyone says that since I just got it I should have the V2 and all the fixes, I just want to know how I can tell for sure. If my understanding i...

Re: Filament Calibration Encyclopedia

As a very new user (I got my printer yesterday and have been printing all night), I was thinking this very same thing. I had a very similar idea, I was thinking more of a shared spreadsheet so anybody could log in and make updates. Maybe like a spreadsheet that was shared using Google docs or someth...

Re: Filaments always seem to be out of stock

Vicky - do you know if the incorrect/crazy high shipping costs for items shipped from the US store will be resolved before June 5th? I would like to order more filament, but I'm not going to pay crazy shipping prices especially when I've been trying to order since shipping was free and now it isn't ...

Re: Filaments always seem to be out of stock

What makes it worse is that I waited so long there is no free shipping to the continental US either. At least then I could have had it shipped to a hotel when I travel and I could bring it back as luggage on the plane.

what to do first?

I've looked at the forums, read the FAQ's and I can't seem to find a good post that describes exactly what a new user should do when they first get their printer. I think this would be very helpful to have as a FAQ or permanent post somewhere. By reading through hundreds of posts, I understand that ...

Filaments always seem to be out of stock

I will be getting my printer soon. For the last 3 months, I have been monitoring the store because I want to buy several spools of filament in various colors and ABS/PLA. I hear that the printer comes with 1 spool of yellow and 1 spool of red PLA. I'm not sure if these are full spools (1KG each) or ...
