Thoughts? Did I miss some discussion of this? 
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1337298295/the-palette-3d-printing-evolved
More material use than a multi nozzle solution ? Looking forward to checking out whatever they actually open source - as $850 seems steep!
Chris Labelle is raising funds for The Palette: 3D Printing Evolved on Kickstarter! Keep your 3D printer and expand its potential. The Palette lets your 3D printer create an entirely new range of items!

+Jeff DeMaagd They did mention transition in their kickstarter page.  Either do infill with the transition zone, or print a sacrificial wipe tower.

In the vein of getting a good build guide document, I think this has some relevance:

(as motivation.)

Anyone could find  what they need to enter this contest in our community right now....

Apparently they are resellers too for extrusion. We tried to do a big group buy with our makerspace and they have to check with their "supplier". Whether thats in-house or not I'm not sure but didn't sound like it.

So can I use a UV led and and order of makejuice to effect similar results as the people at http://notaglue.com/shop/ claim? Anyone played with bonding abs or polycarbonate parts with UV resin?

ABS dissolves in many of the UV curing resins. Polycarbonate may craze/crack when exposed to them as well.

First moves - top "pyramid" kraken containment vessel half assembled, limit switches (except z) mounted, just need to run all the thermistor and power resistor wires, and get some longer tubing. Then mount 4 extruders on the 4 sides of the pyramid, and figure out how to route the filament off a rack that will hang off the back.

Nabbed the old heat exchanger off a pentium 4 processor water cooling system, using it without a fan to cool kraken. Overkill for sure!

Using a silicone heated bed - 24 V 300 watt, bonded to AL heat spreader plate (that is mounted to leveling screws) with glass sheet held on top by binder clips. Metal plate gets in a few days...

It may work, but I don't like how much hackaday is cheerleading this concept, plenty of issues no?

not to mention that print resolution and speed varies with respect to R. It is a problem with deltas and r theta printers.

Anyone make bowden clips for the kraken block? A pain to access in most mount designs...

Well it is finally printing! Only one nozzle of the kraken, and I'm not buttoning up all the top and sides until it is running smooth and calibrated, but wow - 
After tramming and doing e-steps, first 3 test prints have come out amazingly. I've never had prints look this good from the get-go - great machine! I'll post files on pyramid top soon

I ordered the heat spreader cut from a local shop, wasn't cheap. Maybe someone in the cnc google+ groups can help you there. I used 24Vheater from Aliexpress

corrupted solidworks model - anyone have suggestions to repair? 
Symptoms: 
-Weird wire-frame transparent affects that move with rotation
-no preview of model in ctrl-tab
-entire model disappears if rotating view (seemingly randomly) Trying to use the fit to view command does not bring the model back. Have restored older versions of assembly with no change.
-turning off real-view graphics does not change effect

On SW2015 x64

So...
Can someone help me verify the considerations necessary in firmware for x3 pro running on 24v with kraken?
Hot ends require 12v, so pwm max is cut in half
Do I need 12v for thermistors or can I use different/scaled tables?
Steppers should be happy

Need to verify I should add male pins to motor drivers- for i2c connection current limit setting?

Heated bed is rated for 24v

Ready to do wear in!

If you did get new fans I recommend these http://www.ultibots.com/40mm-fan-kysan-tf4010-24h-s/

Ultibots also has 24v heater cartridges.

#bandwagon   #tiltedprint  +Whosa whatsis 

Gave it a try on a part I've printed ad-nauseum for work, and am very familiar with from a structural, tolerance, and warping perspective.

Printing at an angle greatly reduced any cracking from warpage

Simplify3D truly is perfect at support material - bottom face is stringy, yes, but next layer is watertight. Sanded it down on a giant wheel and hit it with acetone and it's as good as any. 

Still need to check fit and how well it holds up in comparison to a traditionally oriented print. 

Ran it at 25 degrees off of horizontal

Try tilting it further. I get the best results tilting to at least 45 degrees. For something with lots of flat faces at right angles (like a cube), I tilt it 45 degrees on one axis then 35 degrees on the other so that all of the bottom faces are at the same angle from vertical (which is less than 45 degrees!). Of course, you have to crank up the support when you do this so that those <45 degree overhangs are supported to keep the object from being knocked over, but since it's not actually printing on top of those supports, they're much easier to remove.
