Re: Strange Printer Problems

Has anyone tried the Gekko printer table on EBAY it is supposed to guarantee no curled prints. ???? You know actually posting a full review somewhere instead of adding it to your signature is often a good idea... Perhaps find someone on the forum who is quite well known... Send them 1 to test.... b...

Re: Heated Build Chambers

After another warped part this morning... Luckily not bad enough to be useless.. I'm trying a box enclosure and monitoring the temperature inside the box.. So far during the heatup phase it's a steady 36 inside the box and the build plate looks to be leveling out to 100 well... We'll see though

Re: when to use cold air and when not to.

Exactly... I got a new Up recently, well fairly recently... And it had no instructions listed about the wind barrier... Nothing in the manuals. So after testing it and breaking a model. I flipped it back to off and left it like that.

Heated Build Chambers

I've heard there is patent issues with heated build chamber.. But has anyone used one for an Up? as print warping is an issue we all face. I'd assume that a chamber kept at say 40 - 50c would only improve the adhesion of the part to the platform..

Any thoughts..

Re: Printing at lower temps for aftermarket ABS

An aftermarket PCB as art103 was talking about would be the way to go... it would allow you to set your temps for the raft differently to the print.. Also avoids the warranty issues as it's a plug in fix.. You'd never be able to tell it was even there if you had to send it away. As for aftermarket f...
