Re: Fill is ramping / pushing / stacking

I also found that I need to level the hot end a little higher than a single thickness of paper on my AO-100.

I've been meaning to buy a dial or digital indicator...

Re: Taz vs. Ultimaker, Series 1, M2...

Actually, it looks like Ultimaker 1 files got uploaded 2 months ago, but under the proprietary CC-BY-NC-SA license. Which happens to be close to the Ultimaker 2 annoucement I believe. Open source license states that you release the source at the latest when you release your product, not a full year...

Re: TAZ hacks at CSU

Thanks. I'll give it some more thought. There's already a simple mod to raise Z height to 160mm on an AO-10x. I've been thinking of changing the ACME 3/8-12 leadscrews to M5, and keep the 8mm smooth rods. Would a mini TAZ really need 10mm/M8 ? Anyway, this might be better discussed elsewhere. Those ...

Re: Thin Walls for letters

I still have the stock .5mm nozzle and I was trying .4 layer thickness. I care more about speed than a nice finish. I had a feeling you were using the stock 0.50mm like me. FYI the nozzle on the Makerbot is smaller, 0.40mm I believe. Did you get the other two nozzle sizes with your AO-101? You shou...

Re: TAZ hacks at CSU

Apart from easy transportation, what would be the main advantages of a mini TAZ over the AO-10x?

Re: TAZ hacks at CSU

The longest aluminum t-slots on the AO-10x are 385mm (2 pieces at the top) then 380mm (4 pieces).

Re: Thin Walls for letters

What nozzle do you have on the AO-101, and at what layer thickness are you printing? I've noticed that with Slic3r, the flatter your layers are, the wider the perimeter walls will be, which could explain your gaps: Slic3r may think there is simply not enough space to fill. Also read the sticky at th...

Re: Taz vs. Ultimaker, Series 1, M2...

The Series 1 is supposedly open source, but the website doesn't provide files for the now 1 year old model. The Github repo which is linked has been empty since day 1 of its creation.

It seems only you guys take the open source philosophy seriously!

When you're on the store's TAZ product page, the link at the bottom under the title "Source, Bulletins, and Updates" is the same as the first one Adam posted.

Re: Autocad editing of freeCAD files

I am now trying to learn freeCAD, but get frustrated sometimes when I don't know if it is operator error or software error. Parametric modeling is very different to AutoCAD. And FreeCAD is not a finished product, so I understand it can lead to frustration. So then I uninstalled freeCAD v.13.1828_x8...
