    I've pretty much abandoned the proprietary software except for using it to send the files to it. But yes, even still there are so many hoops to jump through it can be a hassle. But overall I'm...

    Value of a CubePro vs. contemporary printers

    Just wondering if anyone has any idea of what a new printer, comparable in specs to a CubePro would cost these day. There's such a huge spectrum of hardware out there with price ranges from $99 to...

    Small update to this -- in the extruder I had opened the gap all the way up, I switched to a different filament (nylon) and it no longer would feed reliably, probably because nylon is a bit slippery....

    Did you try taking the feed section of the extruder apart? Remove four hex bolts and the two pieces of the feed unit pull apart. I had filament get wrapped around the feed wheel. By taking it...

    I use S3D for everything now -- I like the tweakability.

    I don't have any overall profile advice I'm still in the stage where I'm experimenting with various settings. But you have any specific...
  6. I've been successfully putting some interesting materials through my CubePro

    Some are quite interesting:

    Filamentum's Flexfill 92A - this is a flexible material
    PolyMaker's PolySmooth - this is a ridged material that can be polished with isopropyl alcohol to remove the...

    Thanks. It's actually been working well being set at the maximum gap. In addition to PLA, I've also printed successfully with "Flexfill 92A" which is a rubbery, flexible material and also...

    Success!

    I made a temporary spool mount above the printer and fed the filament directly into the extruder, bypassing the Teflon tube entirely. Even then, it was having a hard time feeding the...

    I've been trying to use a spool of Kodak "PLA+" and am having similar difficulties under some circumstances.

    By my observations, it seems like the PLA has more friction inside the feed tubes than...

    Well, since I posted this message, I haven't had any of those problem reoccur. That's a good thing.

    However, now a new problem. About an hour into a 2 hour PLA print, the extruder nozzle got...

    I don't know much about G-code. For instance, how do the three G1 commands refer to the three extruder locations? All three lines are the same except the Y value so how does it know does it know...

    I'm not referring to multi-extruder prints, I'm just talking about when printing with a single extruder for the whole job. With S3D, it parts the print head assy in the middle of the bed and heats...

    No hack, just the latest firmware.

    That'd be a quite a difficult situation to resolve if heat is bothering a chip on the extruder board. I guess maybe a fan or heat sink could help but probably...
  14. Problems I'm recently experiencing with the Trio

    I've been running my Trio just about every day of the week, except some weekends, and I'm starting to have some intermittent issues.

    Recently, the printer will sometimes experience a drop in...

    I've been using S3D with my Trio and really enjoy the minute tweaking I can do. Aside from the hopelessly stale 3DS carts I had, I've so far printed with aftermarket ABS, PETG, and Nylon -- all with...
  16. Modded my Trio for in-cabinet filament spools

    I rigged up my cabinet to hold spools inside and ran tubes up into the Trio. Fab'd some chip holder/tube guides to fit into the cartridge spots. I also bolted the printer to the cabinet to make it...

    Yes, that's kinda what i was thinking. Was also thinking I could just solder wires to the chips and then put them in the shoes. I'd have to disengage the shoe before switching the chip over to the...

    I did see that -- it was my inspiration :D

    Unfortunately, the spools of filament I bought are too big to fit inside the CubePro cartridges. I don't feel like manually winding the OEM spools so...

    My Recube jig for CubePro cartridges

    I didn't want to try and use hacked firmware on my Cubepro so I gathered together parts I had laying around (including an Arduino) and cobbled together a Recube tool. Much to my pleasant surprise,...

    Are you talking about the chip on the filament cartridges? I haven't had any trouble with that aspect of the printer. Though I realize I'm going to have to buy or make one of those chip reset tools...

    Well, after several experiments and several fails, I think I got a pretty good combo of settings to work with my old ABS cartridges. My last model printed very well, no perfect, but totally...

    Did you mean blue tape as in painters masking tape? I'd be willing to try that. For a parameter, I'm thinking if I increase the first layer speed or reduce the first layer width/height. It says to...

    Are you saying the problem is because it's 3DS brand filament? Because it's old? Or both? I'd hate to have to discard that filament (it was...

    Sure thing

    I'm using the CubePro profile and it seems to work pretty decently but with two issues with the prints:
