Re: BuildTak is awesome

We have good luck with it honestly. Reduced tape/glue waste etc. In some cases it has failed. We print large.... so it's probably more a bed level thing than a buildtak is failing thing. CuraBrim seems to help with that as of lately. I'd give it 8 stars and climbing from an initial score of 6 stars....

Re: "Easy Bed Leveling?" more like "Impossible Bed Leveling"

How are you clamping the glass? We made, used, and discovered it was a bad idea, bed clamps for their 2013 series 1. The tension from clamp to clamp seemed to bow the glass in ways unwanted. Agreed this thing can be a pain to level.. especially over the entire bed. And even after we've accomplished ...

Re: Fix to Octoprint restart everytime yet?

I think the bug has been fixed but you need to reflash your image for the repair.
Think they do an SD card swap or something? Or they can give you a link to image and you can flash yourself if able?

Project Zoopy aka "Does Size Matter?"

So like most people we bought the 2014 Series 1 for it's massive build volume. And like most early adopters we had our problems with it. Long story short one of our waiting clients offered that if we "have to cut it once we might as well cut it 10 times" referencing the failure to print it...

Re: Long Prints.. How?

Just to follow up... I'm officially requesting that this service be automatically installed on the images. The SAMBA feature is VERY usable when mapping the folder. You can slice and dump the gco directly to the printer. It's very stable. We've had countless issues even holding files on a thumb driv...

Re: Day 43 of Non Funtioning Unit

You took apart the MOTOR to solve a wiring problem? Then you disassembled a mated pair of rail/bearings? To.... ???? send back the entire assembly? The wiring problem is literally 4 bolts on the side of the PCB. Fairly certain support would not advise you to do either of those things to resolve a wi...

Re: Long Prints.. How?

NoobTip: To type a space in terminal as required to get to the /.series 1/ folder.. you have to type a forwardslash before the space like this /.series\ 1/ Otherwise you'll end up in the /.series/ folder which exists.. more than likely... because whom ever made the image also tried CP and didn't for...

Re: Long Prints.. How?

That actually worked the first time! For those following along at home line which states "directory security mask 2775" should be "directory security mask = 2775" Otherwise is great. Mapped the upload folder and dragged a 130mb file to the printer in about 10seconds. Preferred! -LG

Re: Hotend Safety.

It's our understanding that the e3d extruder would not resolve this issue of safety. The melting plastic portion is the only failsafe... if it where all metal it would be worse frankly. Nothing would fail until the metal was red hot and eventually smoked the wires themselves. Open ears and wallets t...
