Re: My YouTube Channel - Where Nerdy Is Cool

Nice vid :) your painted corner brackets look like cookies :) if you would paint the extrusions BB8 white, it would be the best looking FT5 out there. You might consider doing a build blog of the whole printer, at the moment there are a few fast time-lapses, but not a more detailed build, like a vid...

Re: Can it (the FT-5) handle a 2500g extruder?

Construction wise for the FT5 it should be no problem, the sliders can carry that weight, and the 2020 alu construction can easily hold it,
but you would really have to cut down on speed and jerk settings, the belts and motors could have some problem with that weight.

Re: Folgertech FT-5

Ben has noted some layer shifting from filament pulling. What sort of Spool/Feeder setup do you have, Xeno? I have an alu tube running on the top of the printer, with spools on it, for now I do have some trouble with layer shifting, but I think it has more to do with badly adjust stepper voltage th...

Re: How much do 3D print shops charge?

I let Cura calculate the volume needed for the print, and use that for the price per gram when I buy a roll of filament including shipping, I charge extra if the print has a high risk of failure rating and some time spent to prep the printer, than charge the amount of post processing, removing suppo...

Re: Paul's FT-5 Build

Yes, I agree on Loctite Which part cooling setup are you using? A few people like this one (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1746358) But the preview pics don't seem to match the model? (I see it say "HOT" but not on the model?) I'm using this one at the moment: http://www.thingiverse.com...

Re: Paul's FT-5 Build

you should also order some loctite,
the quality of the parts is not the best, and all the little grub screws keep coming loose :)

Re: Screw gauge

The S3D looks like it has a bigger shell-thickness, and also has a fat z-seam right inside the holes :)

Re: Folgertech FT-5

My printer arrived Monday I haven't opened the box yet... I know I want to replace the glueboard/non-metal pieces. I asked FolgerTech about obtaining a copy of the laser files in CAD format, so I can CNC my own pieces. I see some have discussed using cable chain wire offered by Igus, which offers s...

Re: Folgertech FT-5

There are DXF files in the facebook files section, but you really have to check the accuracy, some parts don't have the correct measurements, and all have decreases size to account for the laser width. You might want to look at Walters adjusted parts he made to be printed, this can also be CNC'd in ...
