  1. Hi Ted, Its seems they are still working on weeding out some kinks in their project. Here is the latest update sent from them " We have made some great progress on the the most important area of this project. Our sole focus up to now has been on converting our coating and process to be scaled up. We identified this as the most difficult challenge in fulfilling your orders. After talking with the steel stamping suppliers and industrial coating applicators we have converted our process to fit within their capabilities. There are only some minor details to work out at this point, but its time t
  2. Sure, think it should be arriving sometime in September. Will keep you posted.
  3. I have invested into one of these buildplates to test out for the UM2 with the magnetic base combo. Just wondering what your thoughts are on this guys. A good investment or not? www.kickstarter.com/projects/geckotek3d/geckotek-3d-printer-build-plate
  4. Cheers gr5! Been away for a while and had to catch up on some reading here and only just spotted this
  5. The curling at the nozzle is normal just like Skint said. I just got a paper clip and bent the arm out to a right angle and use that to catch the extruded filament to guide it out of the way. You won't get burnt then. As for cleaning the tip I normally just use a damp face cloth (flannel) to clean the tip just before a print and after. Has kept the tip like brand new so far.
  6. Hi Bez and welcome! You're not the only noob here
  7. Hi Jerry, Was wondering how long it would take until you popped up here. Been following your channel for quite some time and love the vids. Look forward to more of them and maybe one regarding mesh mix.
  8. Im still on my first spool at the moment so not had to worry about this until my next delivery. I saw a video of someone using the same resealable bag by putting the spool back in. He then sealed it up almost to the end where he had a straw inserted and sucked the air out. Resealed and put away. Would this be a low cost effective solution? :???:
  9. @ Aaron That link sounds good! The minicaltest only prints 1 skirt border line around the glass so sometimes end up having to abort and retry until I get it spot on. I have also taken the sticker off the glass and didn't realise that each side were different? I assumed that both were the same and could be printed on without any major difference in surface adhesion. :eek: I have yet to try any other filaments yet as im still testing with PLA to see what is possible. I would probably use ABS mostly for general prints but really keen to try out T-Glass and Ninjaflex. @ Jonny Yes, I've kept m
  10. Hi All, I have read other posts on the forum to some people having to recalibrate or re-level the bed after each print and some others lucky enough not having to touch it for some time. I personally after quite some testing have found that I have needed to re-level the bed after every print. Each time I print I usually let it cool down enough for it to just pop off the glass bed with little force. I don't mind this but could be a bit tedious when having to print the same item multiple times. What I have found works best for me so far: 1) Run "minicaltest" to check for right smooshed lines
  11. Thanks for the info illuminarti. It has helped a lot with the small test prints. Also found that facing the detailed parts to the left 90 degrees has helped a lot. Probably because the left fan is closer to the nozzle for better cooling than the right. Currently im experimenting with some figure models.
  12. Hi Adam! Welcome bud. I only received mine not too long ago and been printing non stop XD Need to order more filaments soon!
