Guide: Printing PEEK (PolyEther Ether Ketone) on the UM2.

Posted (edited) · Guide: Printing PEEK (PolyEther Ether Ketone) on the UM2.

Hi All;

I got an UM2 printing PEEK well enough to complete my Masters research project.

I received great help and advice on these forums and hopefully posting the results here helps the community.

Here's a link to the system development:

and here's a link to the whole masters:

https://drive.google.com/a/tcd.ie/file/d/0B5czN7u52TZnWE1vRlBPSFEwWGM/view

Thanks to everyone who gave me help and advice here.

I also helped set up a Rapid Prototyping lab with 5 UM2s during my final year for students to use freely; was a great success, good little printers!

Mike

hi! do you have the HEX file so that I can upload on my UM2+ to make it possible to print PEEK?

I am having some trouble uploading my version of the edited firmware (too many log errors).

mchughmp, Thank you for being so active on this platform. I am not able to access your google drive. Are these documents posted somewhere else?

 

Congratulations on your masters!
