Need CR-10S Pro X gantry photo and measurements or mech drawing

by mediaman

I create the popular series of Hero Me Gen2 hot-end cooling systems for CR-10/S and Ender 2/3/Pro printers (OEM, E3D V6, Volcano, & Micro Swiss).


I want to make a version of the Hero Me cooling system for the CR-10S Pro, but I don't own one. So I would like to ask if you own the CR-10S Pro, would you post a couple pictures of the X Gantry plate (remove the fan and cover) with a metric ruler next to it (or provide measurements)?

Why I love 3D design and printing

by OldGaf

It is just so satisfying when you imagine something that will make things a little easier............
You sit down and your thoughts go from mind to computer, and then to real life via the printer.

Funner then any computer game I ever played!

ATX power supplies, anything I need to know?

by monkeyman40

Beside Green to any ground in the 24 pin connector is there anything else I need to know to have the Corsair CX Series 750 Watt ATX power supply I just bought work with my CR-10S? It's my thinking that I should solder the 4 pin harness wires to the PCB of the CR-10S rather than screw to the notoriously flawed screw terminals.
I selected the power supply because it provides 62.5A at 12V and I hope to use the TH3D Studio Tough Dual Hotend V2 – 2 Hotends unit with 2 of their 50w 12V heating elements for each of the 2 hotends. My heatbed was already changed to an AC unit.
Here's the ATX power supply I bought (with a 4 year extended warranty): https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B07J6F89QG/ref=sxts_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1549861528&sr=1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65
Here's the dual output hotend I intend to use: https://www.th3dstudio.com/product/dual-filament-hotend-2-nozzles-or-mixing-2-into-1/
Here are the 50W heaters I intend to use: https://www.th3dstudio.com/product/high-temp-50w-heater-cartridge-12v-2-meter-wire/

Anything I need to know beforehand?

Ultem and/or Polycarbonate on CR-10

by sen2two

I have a spool of PC and I am intersted in Ultem as well. I print functional items, mainly for my cars, bikes, and the like. I need high heat resistant and general good strength.

Has anyone here set up they're CR-10 and print with PC or Ultem succesfully?

If you use Cura, would you mind sharing your profile so I can have a decent starting base to get going with?

Hotend Won't Reach ABS Temps

by pixelpop

I just started trying ABS printing and am having trouble getting the hotend to reach the desired 230C. Using 240C as the target, it sometimes will go to 235C briefly before falling back to 220C. Just curious before I start replacing the thermistor and eventually the entire hotend if that flaky C4 capacitor could cause this limitation. I already have a replacement ordered but just want to set my expectations about whether this will be a fix.
