    .008"-.010" z-clearance for break-away structures.

    Using the stock guide tube from the cartridge on the ABS spool I've been running works well to prevent knots.
    I was learning about the cogging when I used the hex-id bolt on a skewer.

    Personally, I was thinking a small friction disk. I stopped the nut just shy of the hub on purpose... it would need a reverse thread to avoid locking.

    It just so happens that the nut on my stud can't tighten any more, negating the need for a washer or reverse threading. At least in this specific instance with the tolerances I have printed at and with how tight the hub has been tightened on to the stock spool.

    I am pondering a way to mount the guide tube for the external spool to the cartridge so that external spools can be swapped without having to keep track of the tube.

    I keep the tubes with the dozen -never-to-be-used- bowden tubes.

    I'd thought of an add-on (the Adar) that could bolt onto or under the post.

    Since this is mostly to cover remnants, the effort is probably moot.

    Do you run all your parts in "solid" mode? I seem to get "stronger" prints using "strong" since it only has 2 wall layers. Solid tends to leave that space between traces which is exacerbated by the additional 3 traces.

    Did that make a usable micro-screen?

    Nice that the PETG stays flat. Are you still using 3DS glue or did you find a truly equivalent alternative?

    I did run this one in "Almost Solid" "Honeycomb".

    It is completely solid, no holes or gaps between lines or layers that I can detect, water does not pass through it (except for the somewhat large hole in the middle and the small hole in the disc itself

    I still use the 3DS glue. I have diluted it slightly with a tiny bit of water and it spreads thinner and more evenly now. I am still working up the courage to install the LokBuild...

    Very nice indeed! Amazon shipped out the PETG today.

    No one has commented on PETG and LokBuild. That will be a new test. Wait a few days and I'll let you know how mine reacts.

    Watering down the booze... now why didn't I think of that?

    I took a chance with the watering down thing. Here was my caveman reasoning:

    This glue sure is thick and annoying to get to come out of the little foam spreader thingy. I wonder if it can be diluted...

    I figured that since the glue is wash-off-able with water, the glue must be water soluble...

    Also, if the glue goes on wet but dries, something must be evaporating...

    Water evaporates also...

    I wonder what would happen if I added some water to the glue...

    Hey! It got runnier! It still dries and sticks stuff! Success! I gave myself ice cream as a reward.

    Exactly... I've been using the same glue on the build plate for going on 6 month now. This is only for my ABS printer.
