    Not yet. No mac software version hmmmm and still dunno if i'll follow the external spool or the rewinding method.

    Did anyone print and use the rewinder yet?

    Most of the filament I have tried so far, except the Inland stuff, doesn't like to be re-spooled.

    However, a loose bundle within the cart seems to work just fine.

    The Hatchbox worked fine until it got toward the end and I had hundreds of small breaks in the spool.
    The eSun disintegrated into 1,000's of shards toward the center...
    And the GITD blue would have been worse as it started off as a large diameter.

    That's isn't the problem. The problem is that it was spooled up at a large diameter and when you re-spool it, the large diameter outside coils from the source spool are "stressed" from winding onto the inside of the 3DS spool (target spool).

    This tighter bend causes micro-cracks that can break much easier over time. I've had manufacturers tell me not to do this. Sure enough, the filament works fine if I don't re-spool it.

    The solution is pretty simple, just loosely lay a coil of filament in the 3DS spool. Don't force it to a smaller diameter; buy filament wound on smaller spools; adopt one of the other feeder methods.

    So far, the Inland and PrintRBot filaments don't mind being rewound.


    I have all my filament in a large container with moisture wicks.
    This problem showed up on brand new material directly wound on the 3DS spool.

    Do I read you right, you are asking $10,000 for this software?

    Welcome to the forum, Donald.

    Rekindle was an early chip resetting tool. It sold for $150 on eBay and is still available for $149.

    There are discussions here that will allow you to do this on your own if you are willing to mess with the circuit and code.

    And then there is the change that can be made to the Cube 3 F/W.

    But not $10K. Basically the range of solutions is from free to $149.
