Re: Can a Lulzbot Mini do this?

When getting down to small detailed parts, things seem to work much better, for me at least, if I create the model with Z dimensions in multiples of the layer height and X,Y dimensions in multiples of the nozzle diameter.

Re: Cura - Closing off top and bottom of Open item

I am not an expert with Cura but I do a fair amount of CAD work. In your second picture it looks like your model is just a single surface shell. I would think you need to complete the model so that it includes the outside, inside and end surfaces, and defines the wall thickness you want. This would ...

Re: Heavy Filament

Joel did a comparison a few months ago, he does not say it but I assume the 4 prints were done with the same layer and infill settings.

Re: Thermally Conductive Printing Filament - HELP!

I think thermal conductivity is the least of your problems.

Re: Taz 4 3 Point Bed Mounting

As long as the bed is flat 3 points would be easier. As long as you can put your sensor/dial indicator right over the top of the adjustment points. I prefer a dial indicator but then I have been indicating stuff in on CNCs for 35 years. But if the sub frame is stiff enough more points give you the a...

Re: Just what is going on with the extrusion rate?

Much better just to modify the model then repost the gcode.

I hate to think that i am spending alot of money on "water chilling effect thingis". I think he is talking about evaporative coolers also known as s...
