Re: Duplicator i3 Plus

Hi Paul, Yes, Sue is working on her 2nd video now, then she will do a short one that looks at the few mods we have done/planed to make it more efficient. The feeder back plate mod is working well. I'm actually quite impressed with the Wanhao, the only things I would like to improve hardware wise are...

Duplicator i3 Plus

Sue has been testing several different Filaments on her printer recently, PLAs in the main but also testing Fillamentum's ASA and Nylon, including their Nylon CF15 which produced an excellent print :-D , but we tried some flexible filament at the weekend with no luck as the filament exited through s...

Re: Tweak this?

Looking at the part in the photo, it looks like you are using 6 wall thickness and 100% fill,
At a guess from what I have been reading I would try 3 wall thickness and 30% infill.

Re: Simplify3d basic guide

Has anybody got a good 0.2mm layer height profile?
I'm not happy with the flatness of my vertical walls.

Re: Interesting Ultimaker Steel Frame Build

I'm not sure about the welded steel frame, I think I would have gone for aluminium alloy star linear sections and brackets to allow for accurate positioning and squaring of elements, a 30x30 or 40x40 section would be a good section and would allow for easy insertion of side panels etc.

Re: UM2 Material Settings for UM Flex-PLA and InnoFlex 45?

There are some nice flexible or semi flexible materials about and I agree with Meduza on the PolyFlex, I have not had a chance to test the TPU95A or the Ninjateck, but varying the wall thickness and the percentage infill can greatly change the flexibility of the part. Most flexible materials I print...

Re: New section!

Sue has been practicing with the Wanhao using PLA, and actually getting some good results although the fan could be better. She has received some samples of filaments to test alongside my UM2, so Sue is now trying them out starting with Filamentum PLA extrafill before trying some ASA, she also has a...

Re: First layer infill

Hi Neotko, I'm about to do a service to my UM2, belts pullies and possibly sliders and rods.
Where is the best place to get good quality pullies from etc?
Cheers.

Re: twoBEars bioFila linen

Coincidentally I have just tried TwoBears Biofila Silk on the Wanhao as I didn't have it in 2.85mm. I didn't have any of the problems that Frederik had with Lignin based filaments from either Two Bears or Extruder. After swapping out I just perform an atomic pull and clean the outside of the nozzle ...

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

It's a bit of a pain when despite best efforts somebody forces something and huts themselves then try's to blame you! We say that we try to design thinks to make the "squadie and idiot proof!" But we always end up with that one 'special idiot' surviving against the odds so far to either br...

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

I know it's more work (long term) but what about having the doors on a spring or elastic fix on the lever, so that if they do open the door it doesn't effect the actuator and the door will spring shut again?
