Hello all,   I got 2 questions ,

First ..... My machine was ok last time I use it, the home was at the bottom left, now it is at the top left, and the letter I am trying to engrave are upside down..... when I set the first time it openedwith wrong home place and it was easy to fix but I do not remember the little box to change.

Seconde ..... Some letter needs to be fully dark and some, just the outline need to be engraved, can I do it with BenCutLaser .

Thanks for your help

Oupss  sorry, I was fully busy, here it is... I receive my Anycubic photon
around last week, I have made only one print with it...  and it turns to
be very... very very nice, more than expected, I am sure I have just
touched the surface.... 0.025 microns in Z and 0.047 in X-Y it's insane
for the resolution.

Now the really most challenging part will be to draw something which
uses all the potential of this machine.

The little box on top is the finishing curing light box, it is a toy for
children, it is called 3D magic maker and it is sold with some little
bottle ( tube ) of thick resin, I found it on Kijiji for 15 dollars Canadian....
it works perfectly and it is almost the size of my printing volume, just
missing one centimeter in Z to be fit perfectly with the printing
volume of the printer

The little piece I print is a turret for the HMS Ajax at 1/1250 scale and
sadly the green color of the resin and my phone camera did not render
the detail, but the turret is only 6.5 mm by 11.5 mm long, I will try to
print with the grey resin so it will be more easy to see all the details

Money, money, money ... all in all the total I paid for this little gem is
405,00 Canadian include shipping and 15,00 Can for the little curring
box also one bottle of resin was include with the printer  ..... not bad.

Have a nice weekend

Hello Stonemull,

Sorry for the delay.... busy, busy

Should be here today I will let you know my feedback about this little printer,
it comes with 250ml of resin and I order 2 others brand of 500ml resin
My gaol is to try to draw some parts for my plastic models (1/700 and 1/350 ship)
also I will try to experiment with resin and micro ball filler and try to make the
resin lighter.... like 25 micro ball /75 resin on 100, the problem is not to make it
too thick, it has to stay relatively liquid and with the microball it those make more
thick if too much microball

Thanks for the link, perfect explanation to how make a small DIY 3D printer, my
Anycubic seem to be the perfect printer to explore this new field to me... other
than my FDM printer

Have a nice weekend

Hello all , long time  no see or out from here.

Is anyone using UV resin printer, I just win an auction on ebay
and would like to know more about the subtlety of this method

My printer is the Anycubic LCD photon and I will share more about
it when it will arrive

Have a nice evening

General Discussion / Old prusa need help
« on: June 14, 2017, 02:16:23 PM »
Hello all, I got a problem with my old printer at the start it was
a Geeetech Prusa I3 (Nov 2 1/2 years olds) with a board made
by Geeetech mega2560 all in one, then after few months the
board die,

I change it for a Ramps 1.4, flash a new firmware.... all was working
well and a few months after we change the M8 threaded lead screw
for the T8 or ACME leadscrew (more precise) and in the Repetier
there was a place to change the value of the pitch and now I totally
forgot where and how to put back on a new mega 2560 board the
specific value for the T8 rod is there someone with a basic Marlin
good for my I3 base on a Ramp 1.4 with a T8 lead-screw...

Is someone can help me to be back, I got a job to do and need
it now 1 mm on Z axis is around 6mm and I do not remember
where to change the value

How long it will last if used a full power , not sure it worth the price...
few month ago I both a 10w and at the end it's was just a 6.5
average  (label write on it ) and I pay 376.00 Cad on Ebay and still not used
my 2.3 serve me better and my favorit is still my small .5w 405 nm

Just for fun someone sale a 17.w... 8.w average on ebay and it can be focused
for 380.00 Us dolars... for those where the sirene of power sing and song ...

Have a nice one

Hello ThothLoki,

Do you need a DXF, and do you have something against 3D print ,
I made a X carrier and I can print one for you.... just have to pay for
the shipping my file are in STL or DXF and also it is good for 20x20
or 20x40 openbuilds extrusion

If I recall well, the files are here , in one of my few first message ... in STL

Have a nice one

I will try this evening to take few pictures, but if the size is ok for
you ( 150x150x150 ) it's a very good little 3D printer

The only big ( small ) conserne is the braket for the Zaxis stepper
motor a little off his place by 1, to 1.5mm also the bearing realy
need to be clean before assembling ... separate from the ruber part
and wash in your favorit degreasser... voila

I receive last friday the new heated bed for this printer  150x230,
for less than 20 Canadian dollars it include the  heating PCB board
plus one aluminium plate and the wire to connect to the board, I
will try to take one picture of it, but like I said before my choice
was base on the small size of the machine, the bed is for a futur
mod, now my space is limited

have a nice day

I hear they want to make a movie about your problem...... they will call it
Fifty shade of grey scale...... and it's the story of a guy burning his face on all rice he eat, it's a real drama..... poor guy, lucky for me I eat pasta

Me and I.... get out of my head.... rice is good

Hello all, just few words to let know...

I assemble the printer last weekend and all went well, but 2 or 3 things
was to correct after all assembled, first the bearing need to be disassemble
and clean it in distilled turpentine also the bracket for the Z stepper did not
align well with the lead screw rod, so I shim with a spacer the motor mount
and change the screw which was too short after the mod....

It's better to clean the bearing before to assemble, especially for the Z axis,
which have some hard times to push up the X axis also maybe some little
lithium grease on the threaded rod

The Bowden Teflon tube has to be cut for a good 4.5 to 5 cm to be more 
with less curve on it ... if you use it right away it curve too much and block
the filament to slid inside...

For the rest for now...  it's ok, I print 2 peaces and the first delaminate because
 the filament was not constant the second was almost perfect

I have no regret, this is a nice little printer and if I need to pimp it to a
bigger  ( Y,X or Zaxis ) it's very easy to do... also I have a heatbed  150x220 mm 
in the mail and with a more bigger PSU it should be a direct connection 

Have a nice week ending

General Discussion / My new printer Tronxy X1
« on: April 21, 2017, 12:34:34 PM »
Hello all,

Today I receive my new kit, Tronxy X1  for my hobby room  and it
look nice from what I can see out of the box, there is no heat bed
but because I never use ABS at my job with the 2 Prusa i3 we got

I  dont think's it will be usefull to my little printer at my appartement
model room....  where the space is more important then helping
heating the room.

My quick inspection show nothing broken, all was well pack so
it should be a very quick assembling task.

It cost me  a little byte less of 200.00 Can dollars  for the little
printer 150x150x150 base on a Melzi .v2 board .

Also it's a very open design model, it can be upgrade every where ...
not like the something cube printer you can see on the net which use
propriotary cartrige filament or component ... this one is base on
OpenBuild  extrusion same as my laser machine and at the end I still
have the Prusa as back-up for the bigger pieces

Have a nice weekend

Marc P
