  2. I just came across this article, where in Amsterdam you can now find 3D printed figurines, based on refugees. Apparently these figurines will direct you to a website where some refugees tell their stories and you can help. 'Although the stage may appear to be miniature in size, the voices behind these figurines are what speak the loudest. ' Great initiative, and I like those public guerilla projects. Not exactly comparable, but like Sad Neo and Little people. Unfortunately, I never came across one in real life.. :( Did anyone ever? And to speak with the author's voice; 'no matter wher

  3. Haha, I've given the frog to my brother! The accuracy is taken care of my the magnets and the locating cones idea that foehnsturm came up with. The head offsets are set in cura until they are perfectly aligned (although I think I can do more on that, will print more calibration items off). By using a wipe and prime tower, the oozing nozzle isn't a problem, as it just gets caught on that before moving to the print. I would still like to try to incorporate a wipe anyway though to neaten up the build area a bit. Here's a photo of a finished robot before cleaning up: The White and orange are

  4. At Open Bionics, we've been experimenting with automatically changing the filament in the hotend. The goal was a solution which could accept as many different filaments as we could control off the board, with only one hotend. In theory it wouldn't require complicated parts, and could be highly expandable. The idea was to withdraw the current filament from the hotend, and push another one in, extrude that, and repeat. We used a "tight" demultiplexing part, where the filaments were fully enclosed by bowden tube for as much time as possible. This part screwed onto the top of the U2 head. The

  5. I have been in the CAD/CAM software development business for over 25 years. Before that I wrote slicers and post processors and wrote code at MIT. I am an older guy now and have enjoyed making things again with CAD. I found UM and Cura and love the openness of the code and the community. However this topic of auto slice or not has me discouraged. Cura developers, please understand you cannot build the perfect product. Customers will use your products and each person has their own quirks and bugs that are called preferences. The customers are telling you that too many of us have the same pref

  6. Yes i have experimented with different concentrations, dont even waste your time. Use pure acetone or nothing at all. I even tried diluting the acetone with a little nail varnish remover and it didnt do a damn thing. the acetone needs to be absorbed by the PLA and when it 'sweats' is when it smooths. The sweat style condensation that appears after a dip are the impurities coming out and smoothin the surface. You can dip it all day long with low concentrations to no avail. There is no avoiding using pure acetone. Anything less is a waste of time. Ive spent many hours on this believe me, an

  8. You know, I should have done that right away! hahaha I checked the heaters and they measured 8.2 ohms in parallel. After switching back to the stock heater, everything seemed fine. But a few days ago, I got another heating failed error. I went underneath and reseated the heater wires in the terminal block. Since then, I have run a couple 7 hour prints without issue. I'm wondering if that error was just coincidence. The physical size / mass of the heater block isn't as important as the steady state characteristic of the whole thermal system. Basically, looking at all the heat flows (at the de

  10. Fair point! lol. I should have just said its more effort in general than my method, my bad! By time, i just meant monitoring or keeping an eye on it or general babysitting. I can dip my model and go to sleep and forget about it after 35seconds of effort, but i cant put in the oven and go to sleep, it would also need time to heat up and cool down not to mention all the rubbing mentioned afterwards and the fact that i dont thing it will work......the waiting thing after the dip is for best effect.

  16. I have a random question. What are you doing as far as making sure that the head stays accurate? Do you add limiter switches to the front, left, and right to re-zero the head when you pick those heads up? Also are you cooling the unused head after a switch? Do you think that you could build a wipe plate at the nozzles "resting location" to wipe the nozzle after pickup and before drop off? Have you considered using that heat resistant rubber for a wiper on those...hmmm...i don't know what these are called. http://www.amazon.com/Rubbermaid-Commercial-High-Heat-Spoon-Scraper/dp/B00Q

  17. @ataraxis I was looking for other stuff and I saw this, I don't know much about this stuff but seems like it might work (the e3d little amplifier) http://wiki.e3d-online.com/wiki/E3D_PT100_Amplifier_Documentation

  18. We've got ninjaflex and PLA printing well out of 2 nozzles, as per my post in the Flex3 thread, linked below. This is usable, though not totally reliable (though often bizarre non-recurring errors, such as z-shifts mid way through a 20 hour print...). We've also got a Diamond Nozzle (discussed below). For now, the yield rates are unsatisfactory, so multi material is going on the back-burner. We'll look into The Palette, or a 3mm Diamond Nozzle, when released. Interchangeable heads plus diamond nozzle would be fantastic (6 filaments!) - but we need to get the individual components working well

  27. We did test, quite a bit. But... well, all our originals where upgraded to + or heated bed upgrade status. So that was missed. There is a workaround, you can enable the heated bed setting and set that to 0, that will work around this problem till we have a fix out.
