    Interesting... lower 1st layer temp. I'll have to try that. I always start hot and then lower to normal within the first few layers but looks like positive results for ABS to me.

    I think ztodd's idea is to stick the heating pad to the under-side of the OEM plate, with clearance for the magnets and platforms they ride on. I love it!

    Doesn't add thickness, easy to install,...

    Hey, you found me. Yes, we've traded some messages in eBay :). The 430mm length is what I use for the standard B2B setup (without P2C fittings) but my personal rig uses one P2C fitting at the...

    Hi Mrs. Nolan

    You'll love TommyDee's B2B rig. I use a slightly different setup with a P2C fitting at the cartridge. I only have a single cartridge rigged up at print jet 1 with an opened cartridge face so I can...

    Hey TommyDee, just to make sure I understand your statement above. This setting impacts how much of the plate is checked for the auto level function (9 points)? IE, a higher number means that the...

    Oh perfect, this is exactly the kind of thing I am looking for - simple quality improvements. I've tripped over that but never tried it. I will hunt it down and try it on the 3.
  12. 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...

    Hey T3x, you won't need to fill those divots in before putting a Lokbuild (or any other platform) over the top of it because that base is stiff and thick enough that it will not sag or give. I've...

    As a rule, I never trust the auto z-gap. It only aligns from the print head assembly to the plate and the issue is that the print tip lengths vary enough to make a difference. .05mm is enough of a...
