Free Printrbot (beta) v2 extruder... You pay shipping. Limit one per customer.

https://printrbot.com/shop/plastic-extruder/

This will be put into production on the Play soon but wanted to give the community to play first. I have used it and like it a lot. I will enjoy offering the cheapest solution out there very soon... And it does work with flexible filaments. A fan is recommended for whatever hotend you have- it is plastic after all.

Haha of course I'm tearing my extruder apart after 6 months of the machine not working and at the same time you're offering a free replacement. Any chance you have one more and some pity for a long disillusioned customer?

Guys have you seen the prices of SLA Resin. If you could afford the SLA printer , the prices are crazy. I think I stick the filament.

I think application for molding jewerly, SLA would be good choice. But still lack of polymers that can be used various usage.

A New Post on my Blog
I started this blog in 2014 after I got frustrated with my first 3D printer. The great amount of readers that first post attracted—and still attracts—inspired me to write many more about 3D printing. A year after I started I became a father, vaporizing both my maker space and maker time.

Its rather annoying. Printed and delivered a print ordered from 3dhubs a day earlier than promised. After not only printing the original model. But seeing a problem and redrawing it and printing the alternate one as well. Guy collected happy, no comeback. You think he'll click the button to release the payment. At least it's a 4 day automatic release, but damn have some appreciation for a job done as requested.

Printing in sugar is tricky - only one out of four pieces made it through depowdering - but this model is so worth it.

Hephestos 2 or the original I3 from Josef himself. Both are great quality and one directly supports the designer

Tell me! What printsurface does PC stick on? What is your experience?

The thermal expansion coefficient of most pc mixtures is bigger than abs. The thermal expansion (and there by contraction) is what causes warping. Think pc is to abs, what abs is to pla.

It is probably a pain to print

Quick question / comparison with your experience: If you print very low layerhights e.g. smaller than 0.05mm, do you also need to raise the flowratio very much?
Currently, I print a thing with 0.05mm and my flowratio is 120% compared to 0.2 or 0.1 layerheight...

If you have to adjust the flow rate that much, the your extruder is not calibrated very well.

I didn't know they're that big. Honestly, I grew up in Pennsylvania mountains... Never heard of them till I moved to Toledo area of Ohio about 15 years ago. I honestly thought they only did groceries. Anyways...

What about getting a kit? Do you feel yup to building your own? I think my next one will be in kit form because I'm getting past the fear factor of breaking it.

Wow, Ok I'm still learning. I never realized that in Simplify3D I could have multiple temps during the print... I just found that re-reading an old thread on Google Forum. I changed it on a whim after my initial PLA laydown @ 230 and then changed to 220 and I seem to have made my cursed blobs disappear! (print still in progress, so knock on wood!!!) These are Hersey Kiss keeper necklaces for my kids' school party Friday. Gotta have 3d printing fun where you can!

you can edit the gcode to change temps as much as you like.  if you have an lcd, you can do it at will.

edit: looks like you have a makerbot/clone forget what i said about lcds

So a question. I have a Printrbot Simple Metal with heated bed and randomly my ATX power supply will just not switch on. Normally if I leave it for maybe an hour or so, it, or the Printrbot seems to "reset" itself and I'm good to go again. Tonight it just wouldn't "reset". I had to disconnect it from the Printrbot before it would switch on again? Any idea what's happening here.

Ok- if it's red, we have not had any issues with that bed shorting. Btw, all green beds installed on our printers are now protected from the short with a kapton insulator.

If the psu is browning out, it could be a short- if some hot wire grounds out, it just shuts down. Check the heatbed and the hotend wires.

Bed adhesion on an aluminum plate? I've tried glue and abs slurry and kapton. Kapton works but when I take off the part it brings up the tape where the part was making it a one use thing. Buildtak isn't a really good option for me.. I have one I can put on but re leveling and calibrating without messing up the sheet will be very hard. Already tried with my other printer before

White wood glue diluted in water works fine on bare aluminium as well ;)
