Re: UP BOX Auto Nozzle Height Detect

I'm having trouble with the Nozzle auto height detector on my UP BOX. When I perform this operation the machine lowers slowly towards the zero sensor and continues to push into it until the stepper motor starts jumping and an error message is displayed. I've tried this using the Mac software versio...

Re: Hi from NSW Australia

Welcome aboard !

Hope the new bearings and steppers return the machine to near new. Then you will have 3 very capable machines.

Re: hairy prints

Maybe just take a photo of the reel, so we can see it. I doubt it is genuine either.

Different colours from the same ABS "brand" will perform differently. So it is still quite possible the white is non genuine, but works better than the red.

Re: Opinions on Robox 3D printer?

Everyone knows distributors can be pretty bad sources of information (especially when is comes to proprietary consumables, some will flat out lie just to get you to buy from them), your distributor apparently never learned much about his product. It only took me about 5 minutes to look this up. Acc...

Re: Opinions on Robox 3D printer?

I think the chipped spools are optional and made for convenience. I searched through their website about it before moving on because I wanted a printer with a larger print area. If I remember right the chipped reels store the specs of the filament on them so the printer automatically sets things li...

Re: Opinions on Robox 3D printer?

I've seen the Robox, and whilst I was impressed, the print quality was rather poor. It is also loud. And the kicker is the chipped reels, although they aren't that expensive it does limit what you can use. The one I saw also had a number of mechanical issues, but this was an early model so maybe the...

Re: resin vs filament?

SLA gives better quality and resolution, but it is generally smelly, sticky, messy and more expensive. Parts from SLA machines can also be much stronger, but also brittle and sensitive to sunlight which increases this issue over time. I've had a Form1 and Form1+ as well as have a MakeX on the way. ...

Re: UP Box at TCT - Birmingham

I noticed on the TCT video the Box was air printing. Perhaps it had used up all the 500g filament ?? :shock:

Re: Taulman 618-1.75mm Co-Polymer

I found 618 and 645 both print fine on the UP, but need around 245-255C. The 645 nylon is stronger than the 618, and also clear. Never had much luck with bridge on the UP unfortunately.

Re: New desktop 3D printer from Tiertime

Yes, I've certainly never heard of anyone being refused warranty because of a temp mod either ... thought the few who have needlessly cut cables to install one might be on shaky ground if the mainboard failed for example. I wasn't suggesting that any reseller has denied a fix on a modded machine bu...

Re: "Nozzle Too Hot" error

Gently wiggle the wires going from the hot end to the pcb on the top of the extruder motor while watching the temp in software. It sounds like you might have a cracked wire.
