Re: UP BOX Mod * run out of filament pause! :)

I just had my first ''filament sensor' rescue''! :D I had a new material test (a wood PLA) that took quite some time. I was sure I had enough on the roll but weight/volume is different. I heard a beep and had to put a lighter shade of WoodFill on the machine but that's better than to throw the model...

Re: Z-Axis Noise

Hi, I recommend the same grease as TierTime uses. I always clean the rods or axis first with a lint free cloth and then apply some new lithium grease.

Re: Z-Axis Noise

Maybe you have to remove the back panel with the supplied hex wrench, isn't too hard to do. There may be some dirt/scrap on the axis or some other problem.

First check if there isn't anything on the bottom that obstructs the axis when initializing.

Re: UP BOX Mod * run out of filament pause! :)

@Tiertime-Edward: Now that is great news! I really like this feature and I know people will love it when this is standard on Up printers. A lot of people ask me why the printer doesn't tell when the ''ink'' is out because they are used to paper printers. I hope you will also consider to make this av...

Re: Replacement filament

I haven't seen that ABS+ yet, is it really not good with the software set on ABS+? Are all colors going to be ABS+ and why? And to answer your question, yes Zortrax filament is very comparable. The white looks the same and you have more color options. I mainly use original Up filament but I especial...

Re: UP BOX Mod * run out of filament pause! :)

I had a limit switch as spare part and made the mod - it is AWESOME! I just started a print with a small piece of blue ABS I had, one bleep and the Box paused, now I continued the print with a small piece of yellow :D Finally some use for all those leftovers. I can see, and hope that this will be st...

Re: Up Box Processor

I did not hear about problems with the Up Box processor. The Box is built differently, hopefully no problems with grounding. There was one flaw with the print head flat cable that when wiggled -could- get shorted but that has an updated bracket to fix the cable completely.

Thanks!

I'm no electronics hero but I may give this a try, it would be great to have this feature. I can see TierTime adding this to future Boxes. THEY SHOULD :D

It has been removed.. :( I looked on the 3D Printing Systems forum and there is only a question if anybody wants to see the mod. Could I please see it? I think it's brilliant! I only disabled my door safety by glueing a magnet on the housing where the door's magnet is. That way I can always open the...

Maybe try TierTime directly if you haven't already. You should get a working Up Box!

I use glasses wipes. I think that fog is wax if they use it in their filament. Shows there is some ''fume'' that gets in the air.. :(

@car3less: Maybe try to contact TierTime directly, I don't know if you have done that or only the Romanian reseller.. New Up Boxes should be better, they get updated all the time as have the Up Plus and Mini. I too have had some struggles but mainly I have had a wonderful machine for some months now...

Re: Bed height drops frequently

The only thing I can say is to calibrate manually. I don't know how the latest version 2.18 handles auto calibration but I also had varying results with it. Support would be stuck on some areas of my models. Just go the calibrate screen with the 9 points of height calibration and click reset. Now ca...

Re: My UP BOX problems

I did have a humming noise the first time I put on the Box but that was the air filter that is spinning at high speeds. I put some foam between it and the outer cover of the printer. Also the filter itself inside the thing created some noise. It should be fixed to the cover with dampeners like rubbe...

Re: Holidays are on the way!

Nice!

My reseller (NL) doesn't know about the sale.. The eBay prices are nice but shipping for a print head is relatively high.. Do you offer more shipping options?

The PP3DP website hasn't been updated in ages, the pictures are very old and the only thing I see updated is the software/support section.

Re: ( Future Request )

Can you try the new software version 2.18? They added an option for a new flex print platform, maybe the settings for raftless printing have changed too.

Yes, the calculated cost is the total amount of filament used - raft and model/support.

Re: Inital Printing Errors

Yes, the print platform is probably just a bit too close to the nozzle for the first layers and that way you get too much back pressure --> the filament experiences too much force to get out of the nozzle so the weakest link is at the gear and the filament will strip out. That's why higher up in the...

Re: Creating removable rafts/supports

No info about software 2.18 yet.. Only difference I can see is another Print again option under tools but it doesn't work for me (yet?).. Thought this would be an overhauled reworked update? Maybe the raft parameters are better, have to check and print some models.
