Is this supposed to be plugged in

Recommended Posts


IMG_20150827_182757.thumb.jpg.23991d4401b653acfd63105bce557232.jpg. So I'm replacing my hot end as part of warranty repair when I opened my electronics housing for the first time ever and found this little guy unplugged. So is this guy supposed to be unplugged? If not where is it supposed to be plugged into? And finally what is it?

I've seen that before - I think it's just an extra cable that isn't used. Are all 3 of your fans working on your print head - did you ever check the 3rd one on the back of the head? It should come on when the nozzle is > 40C. Or when you power on depending when you got the printer.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
