Re: Custom MCU-module for UP! Mini...

John, your method is sound but the rom file most probably is encoded.

It is not intended for direct burning, but for the Up slicer to upgrade it via serial.
I presume the decoding then happens inside the bootloader on the microcontroller.

Right! Sorry, I was writing a sketch in openscad and kept Pi in mind for whatever reason.

Re: Consistent air prints

Wow, thanks for your input Julia. I didn't see that one, probably because my Mini is maintly used for testing materials and that is not too often either.
At first I thought it was the motor bearing but after seeing the size understood that it is the idler that helps pushing on the filament.

Sorry Drew, I copied Roller's statement about his drew for a cheap and reliable powder printer.

Re: Autocad and the UP

Is it about 3.14 times larger? Could be the difference between inches and mm.
Try to export your stl in mm.

Re: Manual G-Code Insertion.

There is no way at this moment to get foreign gcode to print on the UP. Besides temperature control (done easily with a mod) there is no other slicer with better results than the UP software. If you want open source route, take out the control board and change it for a open source one. It will allow...

Re: Consistent air prints

Your material may indeed be ABS but because it is transparent, material properties can be completely different from other ABS's. From pics I would say that its glass transition point is actually much lower so that it softens faster. This means that the hotend jams because of the drag caused by this ...

Re: hairy prints

My own opinion: it is not real Up filament... It just looks like extremely cheap, vey low quality filament. Maybe the seller used OEM in its normal meaning: compatible filament but not original. Although compatible filament should work when named OEM. Judging by how it looks, a 25-30C drop in temper...

Re: Up Default Temps

roller, why not use the temperature function of a digital multimeter? Most have K type temp sensors and are quite precise. Use kapton tape to tape the probe to the hotend. If you don't mind 1-3 degrees difference then even using the cheap 10$ multimeters is ok. I have measured it this way exactly to...

Oh dear ... some horrible autocorrect there. I meant, "Which is why my desire is a cheap reliable powder printer."
Still, have to admit that it came out perfectly. Maybe that autocorrect was on to something ;)

Re: Pegs: 0.2mm clearance in total or on all sides?

I can only tell you what I observed from my own experience. Maybe other users that have more knowledge will chime in. This clearance depends a lot on the printer/slicing software combo. The best way to determine it is to print a small peg/hole part and measure it. If you don't have access to the pri...

Re: Modified extruder head so far...

I had problems in the past with Nylon and some cheap PLA. The Nylon would spit out clouds of vapor and the PLA got so brittle that it snapped by itself in front of the extruder motor. My solution was to put all my filaments in a big box (90x60x50cm) with two room dessicants inside. Since April those...

Welcome!

I am sure you will have fun with the printer.
A few tips: you won't have much luck with jewelry or with very small objects in general. For bigger objects, consider making an enclosure for your Up!.

Are you talking about the mini or the regular UP?
For me, the mini still prints 0.2mm lowest layer height in v2.12.

Re: brass extruder nozzles stupidity or business

I thought about bismuth too but it has a very small transition gap from solid to liquid and the printer needs it smooshy rather than running.
Maybe mix it with some poly-(plastic) to widen the transition temp and make it work in a printer?
