Makerbot reveals their new MakerBot Method

Makerbot reveals their new MakerBot Method https://all3dp.com/1/makerbot-method-review-3d-printer-specs/ ....and if Makerbot leaves you as underwhelmed as it does me....given the $6499 price tag and small dual extrusion build volume (Dual Extrusion: 15.2 x 19 x 19.6 cm (6.0 x 7.5 x 7.75 in))....it's...

Re: VHS Tape Repair Frame

Ironically.... ...I found a box of old VHS tapes. Many still sealed. They were Wide Screen versions of movies I had...and tucked away for the day I had a wide screen TV to play them on. Since I have yet to see an HDMI level VCR, I think if I did open them up, the resolution offered would be disappoi...

Re: Folger FT5 feed problem

I'd suggest checking the igus Flexible cables too.

And I know some use CAT5 cable with PCB breakout boards.

Re: 3D printer for Middle School education, which one?

Filament for use in the Ultimaker/2.85 printers isn't expensive. Hey I bought 3 rolls for IC3D 2.85 filament for under $45

Re: 3D printer for Middle School education, which one?

Exactly why I suggested it...let the kids see how to print instead of dealing with making those cheaper ones print reliably! I love my CR-10S and the other China printers have their pros and cons....but for a student's first taste into 3D printing, I'd opt to introduce them into something built to p...

Re: Folger FT5 feed problem

I have the stock wiring and have been very leery of it...which is why I opted to solder in the wiring and not use his connectors to the extruder/hot end. Grab the multi meter and check for continuity. I know others have opted to use CAT5 cabling...I was going to use ChainFlex (igus) wiring but I was...

Re: 3D printer for Middle School education, which one?

I'd go with an Ultimaker 2+ You could see if there are any educational discounts available by inquiring with either Ultimaker or Fabrc8 (USA manufacturing facility for Ultimaker).

Re: Printer missing parts

Since that seems to happen largely in one spot, I wonder if that is where your stop/start of each layer is? Are you using coasting?

It's odd it's only at the middle layers.

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

That's hilarious, nice find! Friends show me all sorts of various Star Wars collectibles and seem surprised to learn...I am not a collector! I loved the R2 build and I enjoy upgrading the droid as better ideas come out. But generally, after I do a Star Wars event with my R2....I'm Star Wars'd out fo...
