- May 29, 2017 at 4:51 pm #34670I like it. Probably as close as you’ll get with the purple. Though looking at my Inland branded pla, it’s a tad darker. Who knows how their version control is though.
I agree. I’ve definitely watched a lot of the old Batman TV show though (on Nick at night). The purple I have is darker too. I think it’s 3D solutions, or something, I can go check.May 29, 2017 at 5:49 pm #34679
I have enough of this purple left, it’s just it’s gone kind of bad and has been a pain to print with. So I stopped using it.May 29, 2017 at 6:11 pm #34682
Throw it in the oven at like 150F for a few hours. Probably just absorbed too much water from the air. Keep an eye on the spool though, I don’t know what kind of cheap ass plastic they use, but sometimes that’s hot enough to warp them.May 30, 2017 at 6:34 am #34707Throw it in the oven at like 150F for a few hours.

While you’re at it, throw in some pepperoni pizza rolls. Even if the spool warps, you’ll be happy (but wait for them to cool down, you’ve been warned).May 30, 2017 at 10:10 am #34726
All the stuff arrived today!
I wish my fablab wasnt down this week..May 30, 2017 at 7:06 pm #34787
Should I start a new thread for my new build? As this one has become pretty long. Sorry, I just dump all my stuff here.
I got the extruder assembled today. I just have to figure out how I want to mount it. Either I have to cut a few MM off the mount or flip it like in the photo shown. I’m not sure which would be better.May 30, 2017 at 7:13 pm #34788Should I start a new thread for my new build?
If you have some info that’s useful for others, I think it would help to keep it organized. I doubt anyone is going to come to the 10th page here to find info about this new printer, except the people who are already subscribed.June 5, 2017 at 8:57 am #35142
Well i made some good progress on the build yesterday. Got the frame built and the power supply wired. One to the rest of the electronics tonight.June 5, 2017 at 6:41 pm #35203
So frustrated right now. Was Zipping right along, Got everything wired except the stepper motors. Went to do that. Found that 3 or the 5 cables have crushed wires or broken wires. Now I’m waiting on the seller to email me if he can send me new harnesses. IF not I’ll have to return them to amazon. Which means I’ll have to take them off and I’ll be down till mid week.
Maybe I should just start a return, and order new ones right now..June 5, 2017 at 6:50 pm #35205
Oh bummer, amazon would probably recommend that. Just return it and get the process started in my opinion. Any time I try to deal with a vendor it takes a few days for each correspondence.June 5, 2017 at 7:13 pm #35208
Yeah, its probably best. I should have know to check it over when it came in bags instead of boxes. I could have saved my self some time.June 6, 2017 at 11:06 am #35264
Got an email back from the vender asking for photo proof of the damaged wires. I would have just sent new ones of i had them no question asked. I already started the return and have new ones on the way.
Hey ryan, how many time to you revise a part? Im on my 5th one for a stupid spinner. I can imagine what you have to go through.June 6, 2017 at 12:27 pm #35274
Yeah, I do revisions in stages, and at this point I have a good formula for all my offsets, thicknesses, tolerances, etc. But usually I print tons and tons of parts. Then I wait for the complaints and print some more. Sometimes it can be fun, sometimes it is torture.June 7, 2017 at 6:36 am #35349
Is it possible to get the fusion files for the entire x assembly? I want to strech out the rails where an nema 17 will pass though it for the titian aero.June 7, 2017 at 8:06 am #35358
Not a big fan of giving out my CAD Files for a few reasons, sorry.June 9, 2017 at 5:23 am #35487
Hey, its alright. I think i got it. I just need to figure out what to do with the belt grip now. Currently i didnt model it and planned on zip tieing both sides. But then id need a belt tensioner of some sort. Not sure i could get it tight enough with just zip ties.June 9, 2017 at 7:31 am #35496
Zip ties will do way more pressure than you need/want. Using the motor body should be fine, just do your best to keep the belt on the drive side with no angle.July 5, 2017 at 5:20 pm #37546
RalphParticipantWell, here’s my ramps box finished, Now just to wire it up.
Where and how did you mount your ramps case…or did you even mount it on the mp3dp frame?July 5, 2017 at 5:31 pm #37547
Yeah, I mounted on the left side of the machine. I just kind of played around with it till figured away to mount it. It’s so the face of the board faces aft.September 22, 2017 at 6:43 am #44454
Mmmmfishtacos, do you have a long term report on your printed bearings? I have been wanting to try this. What material did yo print them out of?September 22, 2017 at 7:13 am #44456
I use them for about a week I think. I wouldn’t suggest printing bearings. Unless you want to print them out of nylon or the Igus material which I think is about $80 for a half a kilogram. Honestly I just stick with the normal linear bearings.
