    Apr 12, 2018 at 5:29 AM - daniel871: I've been busy working. The Monoprice folks got tired of seeing me bitch about the delta and send me the Select Mini v2 & I've been printing pretty much non-stop to see if it'll fail/tear up.
    Apr 12, 2018 at 5:30 AM - daniel871: It's apparently had a bunch of stealth-upgrades too, there's a new extruder body that fully supports the filament path to the bowden tube (vs. the older version that had a gap), the bed liner isn't a buildtak-like any more, etc.
    Apr 12, 2018 at 5:32 AM - daniel871: The build surface looks like a sheet of anti-slip/sandpaper-like surface that visually looks like powder-coat. Much more resistant to tearing up by scraping under the print with a razor blade.
    Apr 12, 2018 at 5:33 AM - daniel871: (I still managed to scrap up a section of it, though)
    Apr 12, 2018 at 5:34 AM - daniel871: Got some PrintinZ Zebra skins on the way to replace it with and have on hand for spares (the guy at PrintinZ sold me his entire stock for $20 because nobody was buying them and he took them off the website and was looking to get rid of them).

    Apr 12, 2018 at 5:37 AM - daniel871: Don't know if you can see the build plate surface clearly there, but it's super-thin/was super tough until I did the peel up you can see there.
    Apr 12, 2018 at 5:38 AM - daniel871: Still works fine if I flatten it down at the start of a print and it gets covered by the initial passes, but I don't like doing that.
    Apr 12, 2018 at 7:46 AM - WheresWaldo: Dan, I dulled the edges of all my scrappers just to help reduce my chances of doing that.
    Apr 12, 2018 at 8:45 AM - daniel871: It'd be hilarious if the stock bed covering was this stuff: https://www.homedepot.com/p/3M-4-in-x-15-ft-Safety-Walk-Step-and-Ladder-Tread-Tape-7636NA/100211722

    Apr 16, 2018 6:40 AM - WheresWaldo: Yes, but it is Spring in the US so a lot of people actually go outside and do things.
    Apr 16, 2018 7:01 AM - JeffTheMess: yes, the weather finally getting better in North Carolina
    Apr 16, 2018 7:07 AM - mark tomlinson: Someone got caught registering by the spam detector -- " StopForumSpam matched (email: 1, ip: 4510)" I wonder if that really is a spammer ;) Might be a false positive.
    Apr 16, 2018 7:38 AM - JeffTheMess: really

    Apr 18, 2018 6:24 AM - daniel871: First TPU print on the MPSMv2, so far, so good: [​IMG]
    Apr 18, 2018 11:02 AM - Geof: is that new?
    Apr 18, 2018 1:25 PM - daniel871: New-ish. I thought I mentioned getting it earlier.
    Apr 18, 2018 1:25 PM - daniel871: Yep, last Thursday I talked about it.
    Apr 18, 2018 1:25 PM - daniel871: Still in the Shoutbox cache.
    Apr 18, 2018 1:26 PM - daniel871: I'm trying to think of what to print off of Thingiverse in TPU now that the bracelet thing successfully printed without issues.
    Apr 18, 2018 1:26 PM - daniel871: (other than some mild under extrusion that didn't kill the part)

    Apr 19, 2018 6:39 AM - WheresWaldo: That little monospace printer is doing a great job for you.
    Apr 19, 2018 7:02 AM - daniel871: Some of the folks on another group are upset that a Bowden setup is doing that well with TPU.
    Apr 19, 2018 7:53 AM - toymaker: how many printers do u have now daniel?
    Apr 19, 2018 8:04 AM - Geof: looks pretty good daniel! Will have to reconsider that one for schools and the such.
    Apr 19, 2018 8:14 AM - daniel871: I consolidated (read: butchered for parts) the machines I haven't been using and basically just have the two Monoprice printers that I actively use.
    Apr 19, 2018 8:14 AM - daniel871: The regular i3-size at home and this mini on my desk at work.
    Apr 19, 2018 8:16 AM - daniel871: I've got the mini + Octo/Raspberry Pi3 on a static IP address on the LAN here. I'll bring a webcam at some point and set it up once I figure out the best place to have it aimed at the printer, then start doing Timelapses with the new OctoLapse plugin.
    Apr 19, 2018 8:16 AM - toymaker: nice , i still got 2 x rostocks, 2 x robos r1 , 1 printer i built myself and some novio printer someone gave me to try and never picked up again lol
    Apr 19, 2018 8:17 AM - toymaker: btw the rostocks are great
    Apr 19, 2018 8:18 AM - daniel871: Anybody else see that hilariously optimistic Ultimaker model they are pricing at almost $7k?
    Apr 19, 2018 8:18 AM - daniel871: The one that offers nothing feature-wise over the current UM3 other than being bigger?
    Apr 19, 2018 8:19 AM - toymaker: this is my next purchase... https://www.tormach.com/product_pcnc_main.html
    Apr 19, 2018 9:07 AM - Geof: yea I saw that daniel. No thanks lol. dual extrusion UM way that big would be months long.
    Apr 19, 2018 9:07 AM - Geof: UM run insanely slow as it is.

    Apr 20, 2018 9:55 PM - Nickbrown17: anyone on that can help with a stepper motor question?
    Apr 20, 2018 10:05 PM - Nickbrown17: never mind, solved it
    Apr 21, 2018 7:16 PM - ash_pala: Hey everyone, I've been using my R1 for about 2 months now and it's been working smoothly, until last week. I turned it on and went into MatterControl and heated up all the temperatures of the extruder, as I move the X axis of the extruder through the program it makes a grinding noise. The Z and Y axis are fine and then when the printer starts to calibrate the grinding noise happens again. How do I fix it?
