    ... or you will be arrested for making weapons....

    Bwa-ha-ha-ha :lol: nice joke, almoust close to the true :mrgreen:

    Yesterday I've got a chance to visit my friend with normal not baby lathe, so improvisation continues,

    first of all we finished with "AUDI" bushings, so now they fits in to the wood perfect

    and then we made some parts for my upcoming hot end

    I decided to fix bowden tube little bit different way then the orifinal Ultimaker, so we made a special steel fitting for that

    Interresting fix for the bowden tube. Looks like it could fix the plugging issue people are having.

    But, is the tip thermo isolated from the steel part in the bowden tube? Else heat from the brass tube will also heat up the steel part, causing filament to melt above it, causing a plug.

    Now it is not isolated, I suppose that contact spot between tube and steel fitting is so small that it should not cause steel heating enough to melt filament above it but anyway I need to do some tests at first and if the problem appears I can make PTFE insert between steel and brass tip

    So finally, after some head modification (Daid, you was right about heat transfer to bowden fitting ) and trying to understand software and firmware I've got first prints!!! WOW! IT WORKS!!!

    Now it is time to fine tune it :)

    Congrads!

    Not bad for a first print, my first print didn't look nearly that good and I had a real kit.

    Awesome! That print looks really good. Did you get the print off the plate? Because normally we print on M3 tape...

    Fixed it :) there was a bug, caused the setting to be always disabled.

    You're a legend man! Really love to see that happening. Wonderful engineering and tinkering!

    Hope that you print one of my 3d-printable Tricopters soon for the upcoming CC3D ;)

    Cheers

    Great stuff! I really admire your tinkering skills :) And I see you've printed a KNRLR, hehe. Have you used it?

    I like your nozzle hack with the steel part, I've never had a plug, but I suppose it could solve the issue many are having.

    Your prints look great and I suppose they will look even better with time. I also like the Audi bushings, :D. It would be cool if they were from an Audi R8 so you could have race car parts in your printer, haha.
