    Aw, shucks...I can't figure out how to clip them on to my chip!

    Drill two little holes right next to the chip through the case.

    Now I get your design intent

    Obviously I have a lot of loose chips floating around from the hub project.
    I need to find the right foam tape to put them back.
    They use a very thin black "auto trim" type of affixing system. Not quite foam cored.

    Hey John, others - I've made a wand-only print based on the NANO work.

    Again, non-indexed but well fitting. About 40 minutes to print.

    Very nice!!! So elegant compared to my attempt!

    Does it hold itself in place, or do you hold it down with your hand to make contact?

    Is your nano baking Cube Chips yet??

    No. I need to learn more about NANO F/W. Got a post into Tomuro's site to know if I can program and confirm the NANO took the ReCube before committing it to the motherboard.

    But I did get a second motherboard build and documented in the ReCube thread. Somehow Mechanical CAD doesn't do justice to designing boards

    The wand will keep centered beautifully and the little pointer is held between the two lands on the chip. I suggest wrapping the wire around the bar and soldering a wire onto the contact side (parallel and spread apart) and smoothing things out a bit with a nail file or 240 grit sandpaper. The wand should lift about 1/2mm when engaged at the chip. I suspect a weighty book on to of the setup would make it hands free while still seeing the chip alignment.

    Also got the new tape today. .015" supertape seems to be the answer. Still has enough compliance to tip the chip for removal but otherwise stuck very well. This seems to be what 3DS used.

    The Ekocycle printers were given to schools for FRC robotics teams. We would have rather been given a pile of plastic to carve parts out of than these printers.

    Or you can convert them to the Cube3 and then use the B2B solution to make them print anything...

    Hello Sofa_Kingdom! You are able to convert it to a Cube3, use the tools to break the firmware to not decrement cartridge amounts, then use the B2B solution to use any PLA, ABS or PETG you'd like...
