Re: How to model builtin support structures?

Yes, 0.5 seems to be the minimum width to prevent the slicer from not generating g-code for a support wall. Do you let your support touch the area it supports on the full length or keep a gap of one layer? I have seen this sometimes that there is a one layer gap or the last layer only has a few high...

How to model builtin support structures?

Hi all, I am currently working on a part where the generated support of slicers doesn't work to well and I would like to add custom supports already in the CAD file. To get structures that break away easy but aren't removed by the slicer, I am now looking for tips and tricks on how to size them. Do ...

Re: UM2 and IRobertI feeder - filament snaps behind bearing

I don't want to go that route for two reasons - I already have the Olsson Block and I have the second extruder populated, so I would need to replace the feeder and the feeder motor there too I guess.

UM2 and IRobertI feeder - filament snaps behind bearing

Hi all, I use IRobertI's feeder (https://www.youmagine.com/designs/alternative-um2-feeder-version-two) now for many years but recently experience an annoying issue: Suddenly, sometimes after a few layers, sometimes very far in the print, the filament snaps behind the bearing in the feeder and then c...

PLA prints stick to BuildTek too much - What to do?

Hi all,

I have applied a new BuildTek surface on my Fabrikator Mini and now have the unusual problem that my PLA prints stick way to good to it. Is there a way to make PLA stick less strong to it?

Best regards,
Reiner

Re: Testing out a new style!

I find the "power button" symbol very unintuitive for "Login" - Especially in the top right corner... maybe I work too much with Windows Server :-)

How to define a new printer in Cura?

I would like to create a Cura machine setting for the Fabrikator Mini 1.5, but I am stuck with the measurements for the printhead. Is there a guideline how to measure the x-min, y-min, x-max, y-max and nozzle offset values? Maybe a little sketch that shows how they are meant?

Re: How's everyone doing...2019 version!

Last Saturday we had the monthly opening of the Repair Cafe here in my town where I volunteer. Since most of the volunteers are older guys that are interested in all kinds of technology but had never seen a 3D printer in action, I packed my little Fabrikator Mini and a roll of filament to my usual t...

Letting Moderators delete that stuff seems to be a solved issue... https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=2343271
Is that enabled for Moderators here?

I deleted >100 posts manually since I couldn't close whole threads. I don't know if this is a phpBB issue though ;-)

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

Ultimaker 2+ is a good recommendation I would say due to their reliability. You have fairly low operating cost since you can use any 2.85mm filament and get replacement parts fairly easy. I would maybe add a acrylic door to it, there is a number of designs for such doors on Thingiverse and Youmagine...
