Re: CNC Water Cooled hot end for sale $25

Looks nice! Have you measured how hot it gets within the enclosure? You may want to make sure your steppers don't overheat.

There's a new Ultimaker. This is the first I've heard about it, did I somehow miss out on the hype? Or were there no earlier announcements?

Re: Object wall deormations

You can choose the coasting volume (or something similar, don't know the exact name), if you set it too high you get artefacts like this.

Re: Hotend heating fast

The PID settings are exactly what regulates how much power is sent to the heater, depending on the current temperature of the hotend (proportional -> P), how the temperature developed in the past (integrative -> I), and how fast it is changing right now (derivative -> D).

Re: adjusting for dimensional accuracy?

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

I moved my printer to my dorm room a while back, finally had some time to set it up today. One of the belts was slacking but luckily it was easily fixed by loosening and re-tightening one of the pulleys.
