ultrasonic cleaner

by WRHSEngineering

I have a new method in a high school lab. I can see that soaking the parts in water doesn't cut it. I'm told Oxyclean works better?? I can see the cleaner that makerbot sells for $1000. What about a ultrasonic jewelry cleaner?? would that be a much more affordable option??

Extrusora LABS - Impressão em Madeira

by ritaj

Estou a tentar imprimir com o material Madeira, na extrusora LABS e não estou a conseguir. O material fica todo enrolado e não faz a peça. Quando muda para o material de suporte continua a deitar madeira e despega a peça do tabuleiro. Alguém me pode dizer quais os parâmetros que estão a utilizar para imprimir em Madeira, sff? Obrigada, Rita

Polymaker PolyMax™ PC-FR

by Johan-Broer

Printers Supported: Method X

MakerBot Print/CloudPrint Settings:

Model Material: ABS
Support Material: SR-30
Print Mode: Balanced

Custom Settings
Extruder 1 temp: 270C
Chamber Heater Temperature: 95C

Other Workflow Steps:

It is recommended to use a material caddy, such as the Polybox Edition 2, since the material absorbs moisture from the air.
If stringiness is observed, please dry the material.
PC-FR sticks extremely well to the Grip Surface of the METHOD build plate, so you will have to replace it more frequently than with ABS.
When printing sharp overhangs, it is recommend to change the following additional custom settings:

  • Extruder 1 Temp: 290C
  • Number of shells: 4
  • Extruder 1 Cooling Fan Speed: Outlines: 30%
