    My biggest hesitation to using 3DB is the need to remain connected.

    I will no longer hang a 1KG spool on this clamp.
    It becomes too cantilevered and adds to the torque of the drive motor as the clamp deflects from intended clearances.
    A stock spool full is ~1/3kg. That seems to be working well. ...and quite convenient if you have a nice collection of stock spools.

    Ty Sir!

    Just for the record these should work with the new bq 300gr Filament spools

    Looking forward to your filament review, Bo

    Looks like Amazon handles BQ 1Kg spools for $25 shipped domestically.
    Not a bad price.

    I never asked but im 99,9% sure its the same filament on both spool types... I have had mixed experiences with bq filament....they're not perfect, but do the job.

    That looks an awful lot like the Obsidian case, doesn't it.

    So far I have identified 3 PLA "characteristics" that seem useful.

    Dead Soft: 3DS, Inland, etc... wet, gooey, bloppy, and little memory
    Treated: PrintRBot... Cleaner start/stop performance, better memory (stiffer), smoother vertical surfaces, feels "firmer"
    Crisp: Hatchbox, eSun, etc... Brittle, poor adhesion to previous layer, does not hold tension, crackles when squeezed.

    Another characteristic is the vividness of the color. In this case, 3DS wins hands down from what I have used so far.
    Inland is a bit watery and so is PrintRBot (except black).
    The problem is that many of these places will use a common pellet color and they limit the amount of color pellets.
    To me, this is an important element as this is what brings out the details of the print.

    Other than needing glue on the build plate, I do like the PrintRBot stuff. If makes good "technical" prints.
    Their translucent stuff is as good as their solid stuff.
    PrintRBot colors are not as vivid as desired except for Black, from what I know so far. Their black is very opaque.

    Someone on Thingiverse requested a full set of prints from the right side extruder...

    Show me a driver with a fitting tapped into it.

    That is the only requirement. You need to be able to tap the driver with an M5 tap.
    Requires a 4.2mm drill bit (.166").

    This will cover you for both the driver and the hot-end.

    These become paired forever. If you mess it up it is still usable for other solutions.
    But with the tools, this is one of the easiest mods to do.

    Or you have to send it to me w/ prepaid return mail and I'll do it for you.
