Re: LulzBot 3D Scanner

As for a coating to be used for reflective or odd materials, I have used LP inspection developer for weld or other crack inspection. It is a spray talc-like material that is matte white when it dries. A few light coats and the resulting surface is very 3d scanner friendly. John http://www.amazon.com...

Re: Custom Vacuum Chuck

Stratasys , machines have been doing it that way for years. They use a silicone o-ring around the perimeter.

Re: AO-101 60mm Print Height Increase

I performed this upgrade with no problems. I left pretty much all of the fasteners a bit loose until they were all assembled, checked the squareness, and then tightened them all. Works well.

Using RAMPS hardware on a TAZ Hybrid

I currently have an AO-100, that I have upgraded to AO-101 spec, along with a 60mm ht increase. I make parts for Dragracing motorcycles and have found the build size is a bit small for a fair amount of my printing and am considering building a TAZ style printer. Any issues with using RAMPS hardware ...

Re: 2D printing: it's cooler than it sounds

As for a temp error, I believe you could edit the firmware and reduce / remove the lower cold extrusion limit, depending on your electronics type.

Re: TAZ TK0

When I asked, quite a while ago, they told me they aren't going to be selling kits, at least upgrade kits. I would love being able to turn my AO-101 into one of those. I will eventually build my own printer when I feel more comfortable and really need to. So far my AO-101 does everything I want to ...

Re: AO-100 "vibrations"

As an update on this, the issue basically disappeared on its own and hasn't returned. No unusual heating on the steppers when it did happen.

Re: General questions for new 3D printer users

I use a sheet of paper under my nozzle to set the Z end stop and to level the bed. Put a strip of paper on the bed and lower the Z stop until drag is felt on the paper when trying to pull it out. Move to each corner of the bed and repeat. If it is different, adjust the bed leveling screws. This will...

AO-100 "vibrations"

I have an AO-100, still in original AO-100 configuration with original firmware. Recently (last night) I noticed an unusual vibration in the X and Y travel. I have a bit of experience in CNC setupm and is seems as if it is a motor tuning issue. This causes the printer to loose its position midway th...

Re: Ongoing post of my 3D Prints with an AO-100

Wow. Impressive.

I think there will be one of those pencil holders in the future once my wife sees it. 8-)

The solder holder is pretty neat as well.
