Trust me, they sound awesome. That's what freaks me out. I have too much shit to do already. Last thing I need is something else to distract me. In due time I'll get one.
You read my mind with the mold for carbon statement! Is the stuff easy to sand to a glossy finish?
You're getting close to making me spend money I never planned to spend! I assume there is a "mirror" function in the CAD softwares. I like the idea of clicking a button and getting a mirror image. Hated that process for the tank and tail foam sculpting.
saving going well to say i only desided this week...It's easier than it sounds, I promise. The way it usually works for people is assemble printer > calibrate printer > open Cura, select your printer, select the pre-set profile you want > print shit.
You tinker and learn as you go.
And the calibration process is pretty easy. You print an opject of known size (20mm cubes are common). Measure X. Cube measures 19.2mm, for example... find the % difference between 19.2 and 20.0, adjust the steps/mm in the firmware by that %, print again to confirm. Repeat for Y and Z. Extruder is the same, just with length... manually jog 100mm, measure what actually came out, adjust by that %.
For finding ideal temps for a roll of filament you print a "temp tower". It's a tower with marked sections, it automatically increases the nozzle temp by X° at each new section, you pick the best one and write the temp in sharpie on the side of that roll.
Don't be discouraged Mike. These are great tools to have.
right i done it, got the money together.. now what filament is it worth me buying?? i dont want to just buy shit that im never going to uses?? nearly everything i will be doing will be for the bikes but i see my teenage daughter jumping on this new toy and using it for allsortsYep, and that's a good price too, I'd go for it.
Try downloading an older version. I haven't updated to the latest one so I don't know what issues there may be, but I've never had an issue launching it.dont suppose you have a realaible work around for cura on windows 10?? it wont launch, read a few post and nothing seems to work
