Tool Wall for garage

This took a while because each holder was specific to the tool it holds but all the work was worth it. I don't have time to open and close drawers on tool boxes, if for example a 1/2" wrench is needed they are all in line under the size label. Inch sizes are in white, metric in gray and Torx in...

Side mounted tool holder

I had to make this in two parts due to the length needed, both were bonded to the machine with Goop adhesive. Three through holes are in the top holder part for access to the machine assembly fasteners. The leveling tools are at the bottom including a very accurate gage that mounts to the extruder. ...

Heated bed

I made a heated bed using borosilicate glass (#8476k23 = $46.48) and silicone heater (#35765k363 = $82.12) from McMaster-Carr, http://www.mcmaster.com. The heater power or temperature is controlled by a pulse width modulator IC and ten turn potentiometer, the extruder fan command turns the circuit o...

Re: Set default to Inches?

Note the last post on the Cura site for this request: https://ultimaker.com/en/community/1062 ... etc?page=4. It sounds like this fix is in the new software but you say it isn't.

Re: Set default to Inches?

I don't see any thing on the Onshape site that will help in exporting STL files in inches from the Keycreator CAD software that I use to Cura. The easy customer solution is to have a selectable option on Cura for mm or inches. Is it difficult to add an automatic multiplier of 25.4 to the STL file im...

Re: What is the proper way to turn off the printer?

While the machine is running and printing, is it ok to surf the net or e-mail using the same computer?

Re: Set default to Inches?

People who design in inches on CAD software should be able to transfer STL files in inches to Cura and proceed without the extra step of scale conversion which is an unneeded chance for error. After a year of using Cura I'm tired of reloading the file and changing the scale; how things are measured ...
