Re: Glass/Plastic plates with warped board

I'm actually going to try @DrewPetitclerc's unheated glass + elmer's gluestick trick for a couple days. Just wanted to clarify, my build plate is heated with the glass and glue stick, so I'm not sure what your success will be with a cold build plate and the glue. Regards Drew Thanks for the clarifi...

Re: Glass/Plastic plates with warped board

Yes glass will fix this a lot - you need to clamp it firmly enough to stay secure and not so firmly as to flex it though most regular glass wont flex much without it breaking. I use glass on my repraps all the time for just this reason - the heated bed in them tend to bend and rather than carry the...

Re: Gecko like print beds

The sheets I sell have no problem with heat. Not on MINI (50°C) or PLUS (100°C). The sheet is not tested on the PLUS2 because the sheet needs a mod to fit. It's not "noheat" tested on mini or plus(2) I don't have other printers to test. So I'm not able to perform a "noheat" test. +1 wilsonj The mat...

Glass/Plastic plates with warped board

I've got an Up Plus v1 that I've been using for awhile. I've seen the success people have had printing on glass and plexiglass , and am interested in trying it out. However, I know some of the big proponents (ala @DrewPetitclerc) are using heavily modified Ups, in particular, with different build pl...

Re: Customised extruder feeder design *No Moving Parts*

Today I wanted to print and install Eurisko84's extruder design to exploit the penclip mod. Im unable to print PLA because the stepper gear keeps slipping. But I ran into a problem, I noticed that the setup of my extruder head is different from the pictures I see in this forum and also on the other...
