indeed. I wonder if their supplier changed it on em and they dont do regular assays.Nothing annoys me more than when suppliers change their filament specs.
Got another spool of PETG, tried the Amazon Basic as it got good reviews. Everything online said 235-240 nozzle temp, even the settings on the side of the spool suggested 220-240. Try it out, have a few issues at 240 (not really delamination, but it wanted to,) nothing survivable at 235, go to 250 and it starts churning out gorgeous looking surfaces.
Still, it does look pretty.
I just slapped a genuine 24V E3D into my hooptie of doom.Made a Misumi order, and cashed in on AliExpress' anniversary sale a couple days ago. My MakerBot clone is officially being converted into a Hypercube Evolution.
Using bearings and rods and motors from the old printer, framing and new Y rods from Misumi.
Trianglelab E3D clone, a pair of their Bondtech extruder clones plus their Prometheus system clone Y splitter for dual extrusion. Prusa MK52 magnetic heatbed clone - I haven't looked back since putting that bed on my i3 clone.
Still figuring out electronics since I have to drive 6 motors.
I understand the basic concept of what they're doing and can understand some of the mechanical problems they talk about but the rest is much like the computer thread which I also read but cannot contribute anything useful to.I love the piss out of reading this thread even though I understand none of it.
“Hooptie of doom” indeed. LOL
Ya, without even knowing anything highly technical about what's going on, anybody who's a bit mechanically inclined could watch this thing operate and notice little things all over it where a little cheaping out on material, fastening, stability, flex, ability to stop/start/change direction, maintain the right temp and flow, etc. could easily pile up and turn a well crafted part into a useless blob.Not a bad analogy, actually.
The cheapass ones are available from China via eBay and they suck.
The best ones are designed in America and cost a mint.
Best way to describe a 3D printer is it's a robotic glue gun that moves around squirting molten plastic on top of other plastic to build shit. Instead of glue sticks it takes a continuous plastic thread called "filament", that kinda looks like weed whacker line.I love the piss out of reading this thread even though I understand none of it.

It’s the details that make my head spin and eyes glaze over. The glue gun part I understand and thanks, because I’ve never heard it described that way before.Best way to describe a 3D printer is it's a robotic glue gun that moves around squirting molten plastic on top of other plastic to build shit.

There's different ways of building printers, different kinds of plastic filament you can use that have different characteristics etc... but that's just details.
Huh, I may pick up a spool. My E3D hot end will do 260 all day long.We got a spool of Taulman 910 nylon at work for the ultimaker.
Holy fuck it's great. Prints better than the nylon that Ultimaker sells, doesn't shrink or warp anywhere near as badly, and it's tough as fuck.
