Re: Bronzefill

Can't you make a quick temporary temp mod? Really all you need is a JST-XH 3S extension wire and a couple of resistors... 12 ohm = -32° Looking at the print head, you need to cut the 1st blue wire (3rd one from the left) and put a resistor between it. If you can't do it let me know, I have 2 temp m...

Bronzefill

I couldn't get it to print- it would extrude OK in to the air, but the nozzel blocked when printing. I couldn't even get the first layer down- I tried a few layer heights- Nup! Unfortunatly I...

Re: Flexible/rubber like filaments

I have used this rubber like filament on my un modified Up Plus 2. excellent results. However as is says in the blurb you need a knife to remove the raft. I would't recomend trying anthing that requires support material unless you are handy with your scalpel. http://store.3dprintingsystems.com/3D_Pr...

Is there a new Up on the way?

I have seen a couple of excellent offers for Up Plus 2 including, 35% off if you donate your old ( in any condition) printer to a makerspace and this one, buy an Up plus 2 and get a free mini. It make me wonder why are they trying to move stock quickly? is there a new model on the way?

I'm trying to reprint a model I've previously printed successfully, I'm using a roll of ABS that I have been using for a while. Ive tried initialising and extruding ...

Whats your answer to the Printed Gun Question?

Every time I mention 3D printing at social events the inevitable 3D printed gun question gets asked. I usually say something like " its not as easy as just pressing a button" and try to change the subject . Its a lame response, I know!
What do you say when the gun question rears its ugly muzzle?

Re: In-Situ Nozzle Cleaning

Thanks for the tip JD. I hate removing the nozzle and then having to set the print bed height again. This usually happens just after I have got it just right after a few failed prints. Murphys law! I have thought about dipping the heated nozzle, while in situ on the print head assembly, in a little ...

Re: I need help with the Taulman 618 on UP

Like Jamie, I have had a high success rate with perf board and the nozzle set very close to the to the surface (one sheet of paper rather than the recommended 2).The other MUST is that the print bed is fully heated 100% before you start and no breezes or drafts. Taulman 618 is a sensitive soul and n...
