Re: Taz 5 PEI Plate Bubbling?

Curious to hear how the 1/8" PEI works long term. It was mentioned in the original PEI thread that thicker sheets had a tendency to curl after some use. Thanks for the tip to score and bend! I've been using the 1/8" thick PEI for over a year now, and I have no problems. Other than a few scratches f...

Re: Any thoughts n the E3D Titan extruded?

Very interested in purchasing one of these. I have a taz 4 with an e3d v6. I bought another e3d v6 to make a flexystruder, but this looks to be the ticket. Has anyone compared the flexystruder vs. The titan? Also not to change topics but Ive been wanting to get a palette http://www.mosaicmanufacturi...

Re: What should we make next?

from a open source software perspective someone pumping huge funding and/or hiring lots of programmers to develop open source CAD is desperately needed. The only viable and user friendly CAD in my opinion is Solidworks. But it is expensive, not open, and tied to a non-open operating system (not cro...

Re: Alloy 910 Warping and Messy

Keep at it! Taulman alloy 910 prints ate some of the strongest and cleanest looking prints. Although I can achieve the same with most any material. Surprisingly my pla prints ate the worst looking lol.

Re: PETG on a PEI printbed (Lulzbot Mini)

Hi, I've got heavy problems with my PETG, printing on a PEI printbed (Lulzbot Mini): as I tried to pull off my print, I needed to use force. This ended in a destroyed PEI-sheet... I use PETG from RepRapWorld (brand is REAL). My former settings: 240° C, printbed 90° C. As my printbed is destroyed on...

Re: What should we make next?

Have you guys contemplated making an actual opensource replacement for thingiverse? It would be a massive investment in infrastructure and knowledge, with an uncertain payoff, but I think the community would trust an open source company not to abuse their models more than certain other ones. You wo...

Re: What should we make next?

Well, since AO had officially announced a few years back (one source is Hackaday, saw it somewhere else too) that they would be planning on selling a version of a Lyman Filament Extruder i vote for them to continue development on that. I dont know if there is any interest in that anymore or if it's...

Re: Anyone running PET

Just to cap what I wrote earlier on this post. Since I've started using esun PETG which seems to be as strong as the more expensive brands (made solid pet+) and taulman pett, and tech g, and also more flexible. I will tell you this stuff is great, I'm loving it, as its my favorite filament right now...

Re: PETG vs ABS filament

Well for one the reason that the white abs hides the problem areas is nothing to do with it being abs, it's because its white. White filament hides stiff the most where as black shows everything. 2 petg is cheaper than abs, and esun petg works very good and is much harder and flexible than abs. 3 if...
