Re: Minigun project

There were photos, looks like they were taken down. I have a post on the RPF with roughly the same photos if you want to check them out.

Re: Yup! Another fan upgrade...

Here's my version. I just wanted to direct the air more deliberately, not waste any hitting the side of the cylinder. Don't know if it will fit, haven't printed it yet. I kept all the dimensions that were there so it should fit fine. :)

Re: Yup! Another fan upgrade...

Would you be willing to post your CAD file? I had a few ideas for it and it's a pain to edit an STL file. If so, that would be great. I can take step, iges, parasolid, solidworks, etc.

Thanks.

Re: First Print, fan is off and LED flashes red?

Yes, I realized while trying to go to sleep last night that I was probably wrong about the temp. I was going off the Temp of my friends Ultimaker. I didnt even consider that uses 230 due to the 3mm filament. The temp being 230 has nothing to do with the filament size. 3mm or 1.75mm PLA will extrude...

Re: Autodesk Fusion 360

Tried to install but will not work with anything below Windows 7. I use Windows Server 2008 (basically Vista) ONLY because It's the newest 64bit OS that will run 3dsMax 9 reliably. Otherwise, I'd be running 7.

Re: Quick Release Fire Extinguisher Clamp

Don't feel bad. I was only using 2gigs of ram up until about 6 months ago (on WIN XP 32 bit system) and I do 3d graphics and animation for a living! I can't believe I went that long before upgrading. Now I'm in the right decade with 24 gigs of ram and 64bit dual Xeon six core machine. (24 threads ba...

Re: Quick Release Fire Extinguisher Clamp

You need to adjust the settings in Solidworks when outputting the STL. Your oversample rate in KS is plenty fine and probably exceeds the quality of your mesh if you aren't seeing a difference. I use Spaceclaim, and when I export to STL, I adjust the settings to get a very high rez mesh file. I'm no...

Re: Borosilicate Glass Heatbed Mod

I wish you luck on your heated bed. I did not fair too well with mine. Everything worked great, just the prints did not print straight vertically because of the difference in temp. The PLA tended to shrink at different rates vertically because of the heated bed. The taller you print, the more you wi...

Re: Here's a Tip: Don't Use a Larger Fan!

I dont know what you guys are smoking. no one said you had to turn the thing all the way up. Its nice to have more power than you need though, and Ive had my fan 100% and never had a print like that. Are you using a stock fan? The stock fan can run at 100% all the time, no problems. It's these larg...
