Re: Rubbing on travel move

I use Z-hop a lot, it helps to keep fragile parts from being bumped by the nozzle,
I still have some flow trouble/adjustments to do, and some filament is extruded more then I want to, this gives some bumps on the surface.

it only extends the printing time by a small margin.

Re: E3D Titan / v6 Aero Upgrade

Looks good, I'm also happy with mine, less wobble in the head because it is a lot shorter.

Be careful with the extra small bearing you had to insert into the alu part, I already lost mine (don't ask), as it is not tight in the hole, luckily the old plastic cover had exact the same bearing :)

Re: How much should a good 3D printer cost?

Getting into that $2000 - $3000 price range, then most will probably buy an Ultimaker, building a good printer is not the biggest deal, but keeping it going day, after day, after day is more of a challenge :) That is where Ultimaker excels. You would need to make a printer that has something special...

Re: 4D Printing!!! What.

I' have been printing in the 4th dimension for a long time, some of these prints take a (%$###%%^^) very long time to finish :)

Re: Has anyone used nGen_FLEX yet?

I used 80c for the bed with 3Dlac spray and it kept it stuck,
I did not print big parts just some tests with their samples.

Re: Paul's FT-5 Build

Yeah, I also use a 4mm Borosilicate Glass plate, it's very flat and great to print on with some 3dLac.

Looking nice :)

It could be faulty wiring, did you check it ?

Re: Paul's FT-5 Build

The corner pieces are extra support because I made my FT5 larger, I wanted to minimize frame movement.
flipping the rail forward is the best method to loose any wobble, I loose a little bit of Y-size but it is worth it.
and more easy, I would have to shorten the rail to fit underneath.

Re: Paul's FT-5 Build

Even the more expensive sliders have a small wobble, even a very minor one can result in a lot at a distance, it is better to use two together, I was contemplating a V-Slot setup, but most sellers charge a lot for shipping. I already had an extra slider with rail as a replacement, so I just used tha...

Re: Paul's FT-5 Build

Honestly the others also don't sound smooth, did you try moving both without the connection 2020 piece ? it has been hit and miss with these sliders, you could check if any bearings are missing. mine were all very smooth, but had a lot of wobble in them, for the Y-axis it is not a problem, but for t...

Re: Y Axis Problem when printing larger prints

That looks like layer shifting, and is probably caused by loose belts or loose grub screws of the pulleys connected to the rods.
if the picture shows the front of the printer, then the problem is on the Y-axis.

Re: Asides sanding...how to improve this?

The surface quality would stay the same with PLA or ABS, but ABS is soo much easy to sand then PLA :)
but you would need to enclose the UM for ABS.
you could try XT, this is also good to sand.

It also looks like you printed a little too hot ?
