    I voted "None". Got a friend who just started working at carbon3d printers so waiting to see what their CLIP printer is all about. Also I think I'd want a second printer using a different technology....

    The 500VA 300W is just the max it can supply from the battery - not a runtime or capacity. The capacity (from the box statement) is 40W x 28 mins = 20WHrs or 0.020KWhrs. And from this datasheet (the...

    Remember that $849 is in CAD so it's currently 690USD but still expensive.

    Quite a lot of things going on in this realm. I was considering the V3 extruder upgrade that is available in June but am thinking I should watch what happens here with these.

    You're right - scaling up does help it not to mess up on some triangles! I would think it would all be floating point math - oh well...

    I did actually get a clean model before trying the scaling...

    I tried this again just bending the letters and applying to the cylinder (like your pic above) but this gives me problems printing. The problem is trying to join/intersect the bent letters component...

    I pulled the trigger and purchased Simplify3D. Seems pretty nice! I was experimenting with the different regions (well at least per layer regions) and it is easy to do. One thing I noticed in my...

    Thanks for the suggestions! I was looking at the notes for MatterControl and see "Improved Pause" in there but all I see is a "Cancel" button. Will continue to experiment (as you suggest with a...

    Sorry - yes the stepper motor (not servo). Still, I was thinking that since the speed required is so slow that something smaller could be used with gears. I can see for the other movements both...

    I might be interested. Being in the 'States is not helping my case(!).

    Well hats off to Cura slicer for actually printing correctly! The only downside of Cura from within MatterControl is that it never produces a skirt despite the settings. The skirts in the pic where...
