Re: Geared Extruder vs Direct Extruder

As the other poster mentioned, there can be a weight savings if, say, a titan were used. Another benefit is more torque to push the filament through any "micro-clogs", no way to prove what doesn't happen anymore, but I feel like when I switched to the titan I had less nozzle cleaning to do. But anot...

Re: I am the center of the universe.

By your logic every place in the universe is the center of the universe. Does infinite space even have a center? Why yes it does, it's everywhere. I call upon others to measure, and they measure the same infinity in all directions. No matter how far away they are, they are right here with me, at th...

Re: I am the center of the universe.

The universe centers upon me. I decide to move 10 meters forward and take my measurements again. I measure infinity in all directions, making me the center of the universe once again. I move 1200 km south and measure again. And again I measure infinity in all directions. Again, I am the center of t...

ooking for "Like" button [/quote] Trust me, I've been looking for that, too. Supposedly sulfuric acid or sodium hydroxide will attack PVA, but I'm not sure that the PLA will still be be there when the PVA is gone... :twisted: [/quote] Well, we already know water attacks PVA, just not fast enough. W...

Re: Best way to dissolve support materials?

I think this would be a good time to see if everyday cleaning supplies can cut through the supports faster. Glass cleaner, IPA, dish soap, diluted acetone (for non abs parts???) vinegar, etc. Maybe there's a miracle cleaner under your sink right now.

DMS DP5

So, I've had this printer for a few months now, and I am soooo happy I bought it. I have heavily modified it, but even so, the printer has been really good to me thanks to a few key design features. Pros: 24v: minimal risk of cooked terminals with this printer. and no need for an external mosfet tha...

I am the center of the universe.

It may sound conceited, narcissistic even, but I assure you it is the truth, and I can prove it scientifically. If I measure the size of the universe in front of me, It will measure infinity. If I measure behind me, infinity. Left, right, up down, all read infinity. Since the universe extends equall...
