    PVA filament

    Thats a really good practice, I think I might just borrow that idea the day I start to experiment with my petg rolls 🙂

    How to change screw dimensions in FormZ

    Again, I don't know the right terminology but put simply: you wont be able to edit the threads on an .stl file in any program, you would need the "master" file for this. Did you make the model yourself in FormZ, or have you downloaded a .stl file and wishes to edit it?

    How to change screw dimensions in FormZ

    I don't have the language skills to explain this in detail, but you cant edit .stl files in fusion 360. My suggestion is/was to make new parts in fusion 360. You then convert those files into .stl files. *edit From the looks of your picture this would be quite simple actually, and it would be a great project to get to learn fusion 360 if your up to it.

    How to change screw dimensions in FormZ

    This might be a really stupid answer (or rather not an answer at all), but if you could consider using another software I have a suggestion; I’m using Fusion 360 that’s made by autodesk. It’s free to use for personal and educational use. It’s available for Mac and PC. There you easily can make threaded bolts and nuts and what ever you like. It has a ton of different threads built in that you easily can choose from. Best of luck!

    3D printed prototype Formula E parts

    That is so cool! I haven’t looked at the video, I cant use audio at the moment. If it isn’t explained in there I would love to hear more about how you “attached” it to the car, how it held up and so forth.

    Matchless V3 E3D Nozzle

    https://www.3dprima.com/primacreator-reprap-m6-brass-nozzle-0-6-x-1/a-22767/ Have been printing with theese for a short period of time and they seems ok.

    Importing a STL into 3D-Coat

    It feels like you nail every question I have and the next three as well. It is time to do some experimenting on my own now, it's easy to get lazy and start asking about every little thing. I have previously asked you about 3D-Coat in an other subject, and you made me wanting to give it a go and I downloaded the demo, then now on black Friday they (3D-Coat) had an offer with $100 taken of the standard price and I could not resist. Haven't told my wife yet though... Just wanted to let you know and that I appreciate it a lot. *edit; your help and input that is.

    Importing a STL into 3D-Coat

    Ohh, great! This will have me busy for a good while 😄

    Importing a STL into 3D-Coat

    Thank you so much! In my screenshot I have converted to voxel choosing 10,000,000 as voxel value and the edge still isn't sharp? Tried 15,000,000 but then my computer started to argue with me and wouldn't let me do anything smoothly afterwards. Could you load my STL file and see what value you would choose? This particular model is to be used as a lid on an small glass I have with salt water.
  11. I am trying to import an STL made in Fusion 360 into 3D-Coat. I want to add some texture to the surface and basically just learn. But I cant figure out how to maintain sharpness/quality of my model. I'm hoping for some guidance from @kmanstudios or anyone else who has actually worked in 3D-Coat. I will let my screenshots do the rest of the talking since I'm not really familiar with what I'm doing and therefore don't really know how to describe my issue in a good way. Lock saltvatten.stl
  12. Why Maestro instead of wifi or ethernet? And thank you for the links to the railcore (is that right, is it called a railcore?) It looks very interesting. Do you have one, and can you tell me a little more about it then, and compared to a UM2. It’s very satisfying and fun to build your own printer. My first one was a Velleman 8400 that came in pieces, bought it the day before christmas. Made me feel like a child again ?
  13. Waow! And just a heads up, my wife will not like you ? (for making me want to buy more stuff) If I wouldn't want to mess with my almost brand new UM2+, what printer would you recommend to use for an Duet3D board, and I'm thinking if there is a cheaper one than the UM2
  14. This has cought my interest, I understand that you get full control over your printer with g code and of course the web UI. But what about print quality? Does it really get even more quieter? What else is there to gain with a switch to a Duet3D board?

    Gyro PVA support problems

    That most certainly is when the PVA is extruding again after not having printed for a while for what ever reason.
