Re: HOT BOX 3DP ENCLOSURE SYSTEM (For Taz)

Another quick note for anyone who bought the kit. I was wiring up the LEDs this morning and found that one of the connectors has the wires swapped. I tried to pop them out with an x-acto blade to switch them but that didn't work so I just removed the heat shrink and swapped the wires real quick. Ma...

Re: HOT BOX 3DP ENCLOSURE SYSTEM (For Taz)

I avoided paint on mine, wasn't sure if there would be offgassing issues due to all the constant heat.... I'm sure it shouldn't be a huge deal unless someone is really sensitive, or if it's in a main living environment like a living room, kitchen or bedroom etc. If it's in the "car hole", meh, no bi...

Re: HOT BOX 3DP ENCLOSURE SYSTEM (For Taz)

Nick, Ok, it's up to you. It was a mistake on my end so it's only fair offer a refund for the mistake... keep me posted when you get there, if you're having trouble figuring out a fix or finding screws I'll help you troubleshoot things. My guess is that you probably just have to bump up one size of ...

Re: HOT BOX 3DP ENCLOSURE SYSTEM (For Taz)

Ok I see, thought they were cut by a shop. No ofcourse, if it was just a favor then forget it. Well, when you get to the point of installing the magnet plates, see how it works and let me know. Like I mentioned a few posts prior. If you have to buy new screws to get things to work, I can paypal you ...

Re: HOT BOX 3DP ENCLOSURE SYSTEM (For Taz)

So you're thinking with the higher temperatures of an excessively heated box, it might affect the hotend? That's interesting, never thought of that...I'm pretty sure the X, Y and E steppers would need some sort of cooling also. Maybe make some kind of heatsink system for the extruder and E stepper, ...
