just tried it on, fit perfect and very nice, love it! wanted to order one but my hobby is already way over budget.
the clay printing has really been fun, honestly would be worth having just for that. i mean clay pottery is like the oldest hobby/craft next to cave drawings and now we can print things that have never been done before, really amazing.
on another note my daughter picked up a clay disc i printed, grabbed a x-acto knife and started carving, so i'll be printing clay blanks of models for her to carve and paint. your product opens up so many possibilities! so glad to be an early supporter.
i've been using about 3ft of hose and in regards to retracts i've turned them off on all my prints now and just use a 200mm/s travel speed, works much better.
would have to be able to retract much faster to be usable like a conventional printer, but would have use for toolchanging.
is the 1:100 gear ratio on the stepper a bit overkill ? might have been able to get away with a lesser ratio that would make speeds a little faster, getting a max of 5mm/s with 1mm layer heights.
things a beast
