Re: Extension for camera cable?

Can anyone confirm what connector type the camera cable uses? It appears to be a JST 5 pin. Is it 1 mm or 1.25 mm or 1.5 mm pitch? It's so small, I'm thinking it's probably 1.0, but would like confirmation before I buy connectors to make my own extension. Anyone?

Extension for camera cable?

Hi, Does anyone know where I can get an extension for the cable that plugs into the back of the camera? The camera mount broke, so I designed a new one that moves the camera out about 5 inches further forward. Unfortunately, the cable is too short to reach the new position. I'd like to just get a fe...

Replacement Belts

Does anyone know where I can get replacement belts for the Type A Machines Series 1 Pro? The belt on my X axis broke and the others look pretty worn where they attach to the linear slides.
Thanks!

Re: Removable build plate for TAM Series 1 PRO

--- "Alas, if the bed was $15, we certainly wouldn't be charging $595 for it." -- That's exactly my point. I only broke the glass plate, not the entire build platform. Yet, I had to buy the entire build platform because the glass plate is glued directly to the heater, which is glued to a f...

Removable build plate for TAM Series 1 PRO

I really want to see TAM address the removable build plate issue as an upgrade for the TAM Series 1 Pro. First, having a removable build plate is standard on most printers in the industry, because it makes part removal MUCH easier. Second, I broke my glass build plate trying to remove a stubborn par...

Re: wich one is the best?

After using the TAM Series 1 Pro for a couple of months, I can tell you I prefer it over the Ultimaker 2. I find that I'm using the Ultimaker 2 less and less over time. This surprised me because I was a big fan of the Ultimaker 2 print quality. The print quality is basically identical on the TAM Ser...

Re: My Series 1 has been a nonstop stream of problems... am I the only one?

I just got some good news! I just got an email from Tom Davies saying that my hot ends are shipping today. One will be a free replacement under warranty. The other will be refunded due to the 6+ month long wait. So, I'm getting refunds on both purchases. :D Type A Machines really stepped up on this ...

Fusion 360 Print Studio Support?

Are there plans for Type A Machines to create the definition/link that Autodesk Fusion 360 uses to print directly to the printer? This would be really handy for quick prints of test parts. I saw this information in the Autodesk Forums: How can I get my 3D Printer supported in Fusion? First sign up a...

Re: My Series 1 has been a nonstop stream of problems... am I the only one?

The only problem I've had with my TAM Series 1 Pro is when I aborted a print, turned off the motors, moved the head out of the way to remove the aborted print, turned the motors back on, then pressed Home on their interface. The printer then pushed the nozzle very firmly into the glass and dragged i...

Re: Upgrade to pro worth it?

The heated bed alone makes it worth the upgrade. I've owned two printers without heated beds and now own two printers with heated beds. There is no contest. I will never again buy a printer without a heated bed. For many materials, it is so much easier to get good prints on a heated bed. I print a l...
