Am i correct in that i only need to print four parts (2pcs of the Y-carriage, the X-carriage belt holder and the Z limit switch holder) if i am building the dice with milled parts and the water cooled print head, and not using the printed feeder?

Also, is there a updated STEP file of the DICE with the new print head and the water cooling?

+René Jurack The dropbox link on your website is broken.

Does anyone have deeper knowledge in what % RH you need to store say Nylon filaments at to keep them from absorbing moisture?

Quite happy with my latest print, it is a 150mm long section of 80x80 aluminium profile, with some threaded t-nuts, no post-processing what so ever, the screws just threaded straight in without need to use any excessive force in the nuts, the profile is straight off the printer.

Printed in +ColorFabb XT-CF20 on a +Ultimaker 2+, i just love the surface finish i can get with that filament! :-)

CoreXY-like geometry for IDEX?

I am sketching a bit on a new printer, and i wonder if there are any belt-driven setups that can move two or more heads independent of each other on a axis, with all motors stationary?

Printed the +Maker's Muse tolerance test at my +Ultimaker 2+ with UM Pearl White PLA and the Cura default "Normal quality" settings.

Down to .15 worked just fine, .2 and above was loose from the moment i took it of the bed, the .1 and .05 is stuck.

What results have you guys been getting with it?

Is there any way to get data about the current printing from smootheiware via a serial link or something similar, lets say that i wanted to hook up a very nice big analog needle gauge that show the current extrusion volume per second etc via a arduino connected by serial to the smoothieboard? ;)

Looking for printer kit/design suggestions, i will need a printer for a highly specialized build (paste extrusion type) and wonder if there are any good kits out there that fits the bill, so i can save the time needed to design a new one :-)

It needs to:
- Have at least a 300x300x300mm build volume
- Be able to swing a 2,5kg heavy, 400mm high, extruder assembly around
- have a bed that only moves in Z (due to the material printed not being too rigid)

Not CNC, but making parts for a cnc machine with a manual mill with powerfeed :)
