Re: Paul's FT-5 Build

Well I dunno if my bed is too hot or my filament is...I am used to setting the bed to 60C and the filament prints the first layer at 215, then 205 for remaining layers.

I wish I had a meter to measure how hot the bed is really getting.

Hairspray!

I mentioned elsewhere, I thought I would give the AquaNet unscented/extra hold brand a try. It's interesting to have a transparent glass bed again! I've become used to the cloudy surface the diluted Elmer's Wood glue gives. The reason I am trying this is for some reason, the mirror my FT-5 uses seem...

Re: Paul's FT-5 Build

Well I have something very odd going on...despite a good coating of diluted PVA on the bed, I keep having adhesion issues. I cleaned the mirror off yesterday, scrubbed it good and clean and applied a new coating (10 parts water, 1 part Elmers Wood glue). This same recipe works amazing on the Ultimak...

Re: 3D Gecko printer

True! That's why I have been so cautious about my Creality CR-10 and claiming it to be "awesome" or anything like that. I've cautioned my friends that it's a cheap Chinese printer...QC seems to be lacking on many of these. But the issues usually aren't too hard to sort out. It's equipped with a bunc...

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

My biggest issue right now is the start/stop/z-seam....Cura handles it better, Simplify3D not so much.

Re: 3D Gecko printer

I watched for a while, he was pretty angry that some things were missing (8 or so screws)

These China printers lack some good quality control. My CR-10 had metal shavings all over the z screw and was poorly packaged (print head not strapped down/secured)

Re: Suddenly my SD card isn't read by my printer

Well I tried something else....it can be read on my FT-5. Just not the Ultimaker 2+ So it isn't a problem with the card itself

All I can think of is the Ultimaker can only display so many files on its display/firmware?
