    Yep, I guess my "idea" is that the printer could be fooled into turning on a heated print bed assembly and then manage that temp by simply turning it off once temp is reached. The chamber sensor...

    I did some searches and wasn't able to find anything but it would seem to me that retrofitting a heated bed to CubePro would be feasible. Retrofit = replacing the chamber heater with a heated bed and...

    Looks like quite a few people are concerned about the magnets but I found this, which indicates 212f/100c is the limit. Anything above this will result in a permanent decrease in magnetic strength....
  4. CubePro/CubeX - Simple print quality improvements

    I've recently knocked the dust off of my CubePro Trio but my Cube3 will continue to provide the vast majority of my printing, mostly due to the higher quality of print jobs. It really isn't a fair...

    Those plans look really good and that Cube 2 conversion is NUTS.

    Hi Michel

    I'm also interested in this and I do not believe the heat would impact the earth magnets. I *think* ~225F+ is the heating point that will begin to impact rare earth magnets (lowers...

    PETG, yes. Polycarbonate and Carbon - no. Filament with fiber glass or carbon fiber will ruin the print jet. You need a hardened steel...

    There is an upgraded printjet for Wood, Ninjaflex and other materials but it only works in the 2nd printjet location. You may have one of these (advanced material nozzle) or a Cubex printjet.

    Yep, the one piece aluminum body is broken. I've seen that occur if the bed isn't seated fully or someone fires off a new print while the last print job is still on the plate.
