Re: Solution to Warping

Hi all And I am again about to praise Gekko sheets. I have now printed dozens of models on the first of three Gekko sheets I received from forbinone ( http://www.pp3dp.com/forum/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=941 ) . Some prints have a footprint of more than 100mm X 100mm, and I have not had a si...

Re: Sorry, but Please stop josejuako spamming

Hi all when I posted about josejuako posting the same post again and again and then said I would make a cup of coffee and wait for the flack, I didn't think the issue would create the reactions it has done. Since then there have being varied opinions about the issue, including some that believe I wa...

Re: Gekko print bed add on

Hi I also screw the Gekko sheet on, but only until touch tight to allow for the sheet to expand a little bit while heating. Having the screw only toch tight makes it easy to drop the print bed and unscrew the sheet. By placing the Gekko sheet on a flat cool surface it cools in a couple of minutes, m...

Re: Sorry, but Please stop josejuako spamming

Hi Drew I gave a subtle hint a few days ago. Maybe the hints were too subtle. When eyeup posted in response to the repeated posts: Add [FEATURE REQUEST] to the topic title and it might get noticed by the developers I then replied: How could anyone NOT notice it. It's all over the forum. then later o...

Re: Broke my X Belt Block...

Hi Roller
I like that idea, plus maybe then one of your supplier might offer a packaged up "maintenance kit" that includes the most often needed replacement parts.
One part that I think should be purchased with an Up! is a spare extruder nozzle.

Sorry, but Please stop josejuako spamming

Hi all I respect the views of everyone, so I hesitate to complain about a fellow Upper on the forum. But I consider that the same complaints by josejuako being continually posted all over the forum to be annoying and time wasting. Yes, I agree that further improvements can be made to the magnificent...

Re: Gekko print bed add on

Hi I might try that in the future if I cannot source Gekko sheets, but for now I am still on my first Gekko sheet of the three supplied. With the Gekko I have never had a model lift while printing, and have done more than fifty prints on this sheet. Its starting to look a bit battered about, but sti...

Revolution 3D Printers

Hi all An American company is taking pre0orders for two new 3D printers. The larger one has a 9.5"x9"x9" (240X228X228 mm) build envelope, and uses a fast heating silicone pad bed heater that heads the print bed evenly. Looks very interesting- appears to be solidly sonstructed and very reasonably pri...

Re: Importing STL files into SketchUp

Hi DytHlt
Thank you.
I was not aware of the explode function. That will make things even easier.
I am sure there are many out there like me who struggle with 3D modelling who will find this very helpful.

Re: Importing STL files into SketchUp

Hi
I understand what you mean about size problems. Using me method, the model loads into Up smaller than was designed, so needs to be resized back up to its original size. A bit of fiddling about, but works fine.

Importing STL files into SketchUp

Hi Uppers This is a handy tip for anyone who uses Google SketchUp. I have tried a great little Plugin for Sketchup that imports an STL into SketchUp as an editable model. You can download the plugin from here: https://sites.google.com/site/jimfoltz/sketchup/my-sketchup-plugins/stl-importer/jf_stl_im...

Re: New user: First prints

Hi Roller
I can only speak from my own experience with Lee at Bilby.
When I had a warranty issue she was prompt to resolve the problem. And, when I ordered genuine Up! black filament I received genuine Up! black filament.

Re: New user: First prints

Hi The standard warranty is 12 months (in Australia at least). I have had my Up for several months now and have had one claim that would have cost just over $100 if the fault had occurred after the warranty finished. Whether you want to take out an extended warranty for $200 is your choice. From my ...
