Re: Confused Newbie

For what you describe, I'd suggest an Ultimaker 2+ New they go for $2400 but you can probably find one used or refurbished for less. (Fabrc8 is the facility in Tennessee that makes the Ultimakers in North America. They appear sold out at the moment but I'd keep an eye on their page https://fbrc8.com...

Re: What is everyone doing

You've been a busy guy! HCM...cardiac? How do they treat that? Doesn't sound like a lot of fun I'm still dialing in my printers. Sometimes I am super energetic about making all these mods and tweaks...getting them to work much better. And there are some days I adore the Ultimaker for it's plug the S...

Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

What print speed?
There's a well documented issue with artifacts happening with Octoprint/USB connection at speeds higher than 45-5- mm/sec
You can go a bit faster on SD
It also depends on your controller board's UART/IO controller

Revisting my FT-5

Over the past few days, I've dusted off, lubricated the rails and gave my FT-5 a little TLC I have purchased the 713Maker replacement bed platform and bed. I still need to purchase the heated silicone mat and SSR to make those upgrades. But with Marlin 1.1.9 and babystepping, I wanted to see if that...

Re: Parts Sticking to Blue Tape on Only 1 of 2 Identical Printers!

+1 for babystepping I just modified my firmware on my FT-5, whose bed has a noticeable dip in the middle (some suspect the operator, too) :) Using babystepping with 1.1.9, i can get that first layer perfect now. It might be worth a shot? It'll really test your vision! I know with my other printers, ...

Re: What is everyone doing

To Roberts_Clif 's points... How is a newbie supposed to have an inkling of a clue on the science of stepper driver voltage? I mean, do you know the atomic weight of how much water to use to prepare your coffee each morning? I mean, your response is just a bit flip. Like "Everyone" should know stepp...

Re: What is everyone doing

Well the FT-6 has been fun and challenging I'm sure the old age is part of it, GrueMaster :) I'm very detail oriented and will follow instructions to the letter. This printer's instructions certainly has a lot of areas that need additional steps and some more clarity. I was asked to offer my detaile...
