Re: Warping - What Am I Doing Wrong ?

I've been printing on glass + gluestick exclusively for about a year. I run my bed temp at 60c and usually have the hotend at 200 - 210 for PLA. I print a skirt to prime the hotend, but no brim or raft. The only times I see any warping off the bed is when my bed is too far from the nozzle and it's n...

Re: Choosing a PSU and modding an ATX PSU

I ended up buying some ATX & PCI-E extension cables and making all modular cables instead of hard wiring, so swapping PSUs or boards takes all of about 2 minutes. Do you happen to have any pictures? I have one pic kind of in the middle of the build. It's just of the MKS Gen and the PCI-E cable. I a...

Re: 32-bit boards

There's the MKS SBase if you want a smoothie clone. It will run genuine smoothieware, but obviously without support.

Re: I hate Facebook

There's no organization or seemingly any logic behind how Facebook determines which posts it shows you and in which order. On top of that, 90% of the posts are new people with clogs and clicking extruders. There has to be at least 100 people posting the same video of their extruder clicking. Most of...
