Desktop molding machines look awesome, and are way high on my list of things to build. Apparently you can make a hand crank version that works like a bottle capper for a few hundred bucks. It can make dozens of parts an hour from nothing but raw pellets, electricity and elbow grease. Pretty exciting...

I'm gonna have to test this, and I'll be very happy if it works :D I kind of got obsessed with 3d printing when I purchased the davinci 1.0 in november, and bought a massive amount of 1.75mm filament. I think I have 13 rolls :lol: You'll be impressed 8-) We've been running all sorts of 1.75mm filam...
bam, I am not familier (yet) with the TAZ5 PEI beds. I mount my PEI to borosilicate. When I need to print NinjaFlex, I simply flip the plate over so the glass side is up. Any reason you can't do that on the TAZ5? Or are the TAZ beds an integrated heater on one side and the PEI on the other? cheers,...
Heyo! With the awesome new PEI sheets out on the TAZ5, it's likely that some folks will be printing ninjaflex on it pretty soon. Ninjaflex sticks a bit TOO well to PEI, and it you're not careful, you can damage the PEI trying to get parts off. Here are a few suggestions to keep that from happening :...
Hey all The mini's start sequence is critical to it's ability to print, it's what tells the printer how to heat up, clean the nozzle and find the plane of the bed before the print. It's written in g-code, which is a set of movement commands ("G") and modifier commands ("M), which change things like ...

Heyo! How do I auto-level if there isn't an appropriate profile? Is there a generic profile, for example? Can you make a profile for ColorFabb XT or recommend another one to adapt for it? Since different materials vary so widely in the way they print, it's best to start from the closest material tha...
@Orias - nope. The fan connected to T0 (the extruder cabling that shipped with the TAZ4) activates, but T1's fan does nothing. There's an extremely tiny chance that I built my cable wrong, but everything else on it works fine so I doubt it. If your tech confirms that the firmware should work I'll s...

Can someone explain what is the process behind the layer width? My nozzle is .35 and that should be the only width it goes out? Well I guess there is the material expansion and shrinking, but how would I be able to set the layer width to .22 ? Is there something like a photo camera blend inside? th...

You beat me here! Yep, I loved this. Even though I've actually got a 32 inch plotter sitting a few feet a way, I wanted to do it with my printer! I made a quick snap-on holder because I thought I might want to try a few larger markers as well. It turned out ok! If you've got any lulzbot printer, my...
