Re: UP BOX raft separation from model problems

My printer has been making great models. I find it sticks to the raft at the 0.1mm layer height, but is fine at 0.15mm. I also find it sticks to the raft badly if I change the nozzle air vent to the horizontal position. In the vertical position it works much better. Have you guys tried playing with ...

Re: UP BOX raft separation from model problems

Most of my prints have separated fine, but a couple have been really really stuck to the base. I have a suspicion it was worse when using 0.10mm layer height and a fine setting, but haven't confirmed yet.

Re: How is the UP BOX compared with uPrint SE Plus?

In Australia the Uprint SE Plus is $29000. The UP Box is $3000. So I think yes, 10 Up Box printers would outperform 1 Uprint, much higher throughput running 10 machines at once. :lol:

Re: UP Box review

How many problems have you had with the holes in the perf board? I have done a few prints which go over the holes, all of them were fine. It didn't care about the little holes. You can see the blue print in my photo above, it took up nearly the whole print area and went over multiple screws. I didn'...

I didn't look closely at the finned heat sink, but I think it was aluminium.

Re: UP Box review

Thanks for the tip on print preview. I clicked on it earlier and thought it just went to the normal print. But if you continue it does give an estimate without actually printing. It then does show the raft, but it still doesn't show supports.

Re: UP Box review

You'll still have more rubbing than the 500g roll. The 500g roll goes over the lips on the retaining fingers of the standard orange spool holder. The black covers doesn't do any retaining.

Re: UP Box review

Hi All, This is my first 3D printer, so don't have any experience to give a useful stand alone review. I hope the OP doesn't mind, but I might throw my observations in here. I received the printer, unboxed it and started printing very quickly, with no prior 3D printing experience. The 500g white rol...
