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

I think this is super cool bam! Any plan to support multiple "cool" ends? ;) Thanks! I've been thinking about it, bit it's going to be tricky. You can get away with multiple hotends in the same plane with just a little ooze, but multiple pens will leave a weird double image. Adding mechinics to pus...

Re: latest flexydualie files

Heyo! The FlexyDualie is identical to the standard dual extruder, but with a flexystruder body mounted in place of one of the 2 standard gregs wade extruders. It also comes standard with 0.5mm nozzles instead of the .35mm nozzles on the standard dual, this helps significantly with the ninjaflex prin...

2D printing: it's cooler than it sounds

Heyo! For a while now we've been tinkering around with the idea of a pen attachment for the printers. The idea is that it could give users a lot more choices of ink and paper for good old 2D printing, including any available pens/pencils/markers or even etch-resist pens for prototyping circuit board...

Re: PEI bed surface

I don't know what the problem is. I have read about it on the forums for months and it seems like the best thing going. It is crap on this machine, that is for sure. Maybe I will try again after I upgrade the z axis. We've been testing it extensively in house over the past couple weeks, and it defi...

Re: Easy TAZ Mini Hardware Development

Thought I'd share a few images of the prototypes we've been working on, this is going to be a sweet little printer :) IMG_2957.JPG Azalea was the first phase of prototyping, with Azalea 1 being the first one made. Check out the blower and shroud on the right side of the print bed. After printing, th...

Re: Auto bed probing and compensation with G29 Development

We've been working for some time now on bed leveling, and have working prototypes featuring a neat way to tackle bed compensation. The hack uses the nozzle as the probe to find the bed, so the probe-nozzle offset doesn't need to be measured and accounted for. We've taken the 2 leads to the z-endstop...

Re: Auto bed probing and compensation with G29 Development

Hey All, I was able to get this thing printed and installed on my TAZ4. Following the instructions from here http://blog.yuliyruzin.com/2014/06/lulzbot-taz-3-bed-auto-leveling.html Awesome! :) Now when printing it measures the bed with the probe but stops at about 3mm from the glass and starts prin...

Re: Open Source Syringe Pump

Rufu5's got a video on his phone, mine was unfortunately died before we got it pumping :cry: Going to try to have V2 posted over the weekend, I'm mixing up the design pretty significantly to allow mixing of pastes/chemicals and to allow better (read: ANY) retraction capabilities. Here are some image...

Open Source Syringe Pump

Hey guys! Between school and work, I've spent quite a bit of time around syringe pumps. They're simple things, consisting of a single stepper motor, a controller, a syringe and some tubing, but they allow for very consistent flow of just about anything you can squeeze through a hole. Ever since I sa...
