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...

I think I found it! Need to go via the MCP link, not via the report notification.

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...

Re: Simple 3D Printer mainboard for a filament joiner?

I haven't used the fuser much since completing the hardware and Arduino code and have therefor no pictures of it in action. I haven't even had the time to design a nice case for the electronics. The actual hotend hardware I used is the one described here: https://3dprinting.com/how-to/fuse-filament-...

Re: Yellow PLA in smaller quantities than usual 750g spools?

I am looking for 2.85. Loose or spool is both fine. If I look at PrintedSolid, the say for samples: Samples are made up ahead of time, so if you order two samples, you will receive two samples and not one long sample. That would mean I need to do a number of welds to weld the ends of the samples. Do...

Do they sell loose filament? Couldn't find anything on their web site.

Re: Yellow PLA in smaller quantities than usual 750g spools?

I saw that some companies seem to have 250g rolls but that might be a little too tight and the price on these rolls is close to what a 750g spool would cost me. Ideal would be a source that sells loose filament by the meter. Faberdashery seems to still offer that but I haven't heard their name in a ...

Yellow PLA in smaller quantities than usual 750g spools?

I need yellow PLA colors for a few prints where I do not think that I will ever use a full 750g spool but need more than the usual 50g samples.

Is there a manufacturer that sells smaller quantities? I would need ~26 meter or ~260 gram.

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

I am not sure I would have donated (the same amount) if I would have known that you want to go the Ultimaker Forum route with eye candy and social media integration :-(
That is not what I want from this forum.

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

I would rather say I am contributing to a very nerdy plane spotter tool :-) If you run a receiver for them, you get a free FR24 Business Subscription which gives you more filters and stuff. I like to use their site to check if the plane, that serves the flight I am currently waiting for, is on time ...
