Re: Gear Software?

Not free, but Gearotic is worth looking into: http://www.gearotic.com/ http://www.gearotic.com/FAQ.html Made by the same guy as Mach3, I believe, it works as a gear design app that can handle all sorts of gears and will also spit out g-code for machining gears - that part is maybe not super useful o...

Re: E3D V6 known flaw back again

Sorry to bump back an old thread, but just curious - what are your retraction settings? Yeah heat creep can be troubling in an all metal hot end. But stainless has pretty low thermal conductivity and the way the heat break is designed is pretty effective in controlling heat up into the filament. Wit...

Re: PEI bed surface

Yup, I made a few PLA prints with the bed at 60C and no other bed treatments, works a treat :)

Re: Taz 2 evolved to 4

I missed this post, but thanks for the feedback, glad they turned out well!

I'm going back to my day job on Monday so unless there's a big group buy kinda thing, this is the end of my Taz4 end plate making career! :D

Re: Taz 2 evolved to 4

Well, the way I made mine and piercet's (just need to finish tapping some of the holes tomorrow and will ship in the afternoon! :) ) I have a single fixture, so it takes quite a while.. Basically cut the inside pockets and drill all the holes on one plate with external clamps, take the clamps off, p...

Re: Taz 2 evolved to 4

If you find 9 more people to order at once, I'd probably do them for $50 (plus shipping!) and I'd consider the anodizing.. But you might have to settle for black spray paint!

Re: Taz 2 evolved to 4

Hmm.. Well I have enough aluminum to make two more pairs. If you do want a pair, send me a PM and we'll get things going. They're fairly small and light so I can probably include shipping to the US/Canada for the $75. I guess I can make it USD75 for the US folks and CAD75 in Canada :) I'm busy today...

Re: Taz 2 evolved to 4

I used 3/16", metal supermarkets (thats an actual company hehe) near me had lots of it in stock! Maybe I should rethink making these sets lol.. I was thinking I'd have to charge $75 or so for a set to make it worth my time, but didn't think people would want to pay that much :) Still think lulzbot c...

Re: Stepper moror is very hot!

Yup, stepper motors do get pretty hot and they are quite capable to handling the heat :) You might have to worry if they're too hot to touch, but 100F is perfectly fine!

Re: Taz 2 evolved to 4

Just a perk of having a CNC mill :)

I didn't make a second set.. Theoretically I could make more, but it's a bit of a pain and I wouldn't feel right asking for enough $$ to cover the time they take me.. These would be much easier to make on a waterjet!
