Re: Can the edges, surfaces and holes be improved?

I'm a new user like you, so my views would be different from the experienced ones. Basically, 3D printing ISN'T perfect yet. You said you've just started out, waited you get your first filament jam, nozzle jam, warp print, air print. You'll know it's now perfect yet. From what I can see the ridges, ...

Re: Very difficult to remove from cellboard

I had the same issue when I got my printer, ain't no way about it. I can only give you advice - Try flexing the board a bit, you should hear the plastic creak and SOME parts MIGHT pop up so you can get the spatula/chisel/scrapper to scrape it off - look at the scrapper, there's a flat and a chiselle...

Re: Filament composition and temperature

Thanks for the info everyone, hmmm.. they don't ship internationally. Guess I'll have to try my luck with Amazon!

Re: Filament composition and temperature

Hi there, I'm a new user that's just wadding into the whole generic filament market (gotta have that glow in the dark filament! ;)) So, thus far I've gathered that UP Filaments melt at a higher temperature than other stuff at 260, while generic filament is about 230? So does that mean that it is ess...

Re: Just bought a 'for parts' UP mini printer -need advice

Yes, by the gap I meant that great big port at the top where the filament tube gets into the case and where all the heat leaks out. With doing PLA: 1) don't disconnect the heated bed - 50C is about perfect for good PLA like Colorfabb 2) Due to the direct drive design of the Up extruder (PLus and Mi...

I plan on disconnecting the ribbon connector to the heat bed and attaching my octave pla module. What setting should I put it to?
Ok, I'm new to this, so I have to ask, why don't you just use the PLA nozzle temperature setting?

Re: Just bought a 'for parts' UP mini printer -need advice

Not hating the Mini, but just wondering why if going slightly above 60C means it would have worked better you kinda have to wonder why they didn't put a higher one in the first place? I've gotten one jam, so far, and other that the warping which is stopping me from printing stuff > 80MM wide I'm fin...

Re: Just bought a 'for parts' UP mini printer -need advice

I thought I saw the top vent sealing piece in thingiverse, but I can't find it anymore. Do you have a link Roller? Interestingly enough... the words on my temperature controller chip has been filed away. Using a thermometer I did measure that the bed is hovering around 60 degrees though. I'm still s...

Re: Just bought a 'for parts' UP mini printer -need advice

After talking to you, I realized that the source of my warping might be because my nozzle head level for the further corners aren't right, because my issue is that while the support rafts stick, the model ISN'T sticking on the support. I'll relevel the printer tonight and see if it solves my problem...

Re: Just bought a 'for parts' UP mini printer -need advice

When you say doesn't stick, it's that the part is peeling off the support base right? The support base is printed properly right? Because if the support base isn't printed properly then that's another issue altogether. In my short experience with the printer, if I tried to IMMEDIATELY print after a ...

Re: Just bought a 'for parts' UP mini printer -need advice

Hi there, new owner of the Up Mini here as well. Newbie to the whole 3D printing thing too. Anyway, I'm also seeing warping on my models which extend to the edge. ie. > 8 CM in diameter. From what I've managed to read, it's because unlike the Up Plus which you have experience with, the Up Mini has a...

Just Got My UP! Mini, Any Tips?

Hi all, I just got my UP! Mini printer during the weekend, already experienced a filament jam scenario, so I'm printing the new filament feeder from thingiverse. to replace it. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:66309 I'm from Malaysia, so ambient temperature around here is pretty much 30+ celcius I'v...
