Re: problem with spiral vase mode

Are you sure vase mode is turned on in Ideamaker? There shouldn't be any explicit layer changes since it is all continuous.

Re: Print stops after 30min.

Did you measure the diameter of the Verbatim PLA to make sure it is 1.75mm or less?

Re: What's a good reliable PLA

If you have a Microcenter close by, Inland PLA is pretty consistent and inexpensive. $14.99 a roll.

Re: GCODE: How do I pause the print at a specific layer height ?

Yes, I use it all the time to change colors/filaments. Yes, as simple as setting layer height. When it pauses, it moves the head back to home, then you do the unpause, it continues.

Re: GCODE: How do I pause the print at a specific layer height ?

If you are using Ideamaker, why not just set the pause in Ideamaker under Advanced Settings - - Others - - Pause at Heights

more economical option

I asked CS Hyde for a more economical option for the N2 since the 13"x13.5" sized sheets were so much more expensive than the 12x12. They figured out that if we keep the max on one side to 12.5, then the price will be much closer to the 12x12 size sheet. We settled on 12.5x13.5" Here ...

Re: Nozzle z-axis leveling

the bed mod directions are in threads around here, one thing left out is make the spring for the center screw twice as strong as the springs for the periphery why make the center spring so much stronger? could you accomplish that by using two springs (not sure they would fit into the screw, but...)

N2 sized PEI sheet from CS Hyde

I asked CS Hyde about getting a precut N2 size PEI sheet with adhesive on the back. They added their various thickness of PEI sized for the N2 to the website: http://catalog.cshyde.com/viewitems/3d-printing-materials/ultem-pei They have not added the 20mil and 40mil yet, but here is the prices quote...

The threads are the same as the E3D v6 nozzles so any of the E3D V6 nozzles will fit.

Re: Patterns for Aluminium Sand Casting

Curious... could you send this off to a service to get it printed in metal? Would a printed metal piece be strong enough for this application?
