Hey everyone, Dave here, beta backer #7, I JUST got my machine today and unpacked it, (everything looks good) got a few questions:
Clear Tubing, What's the average length people are using? The tubing supplied is quite long, and while the tubing in the pics looks a bit shorter I'm guessing you can cut this tubing up for various uses, and I know it depends on your printers "reach" per se, but seems like it might be around a 1ft 1/2, so maybe the tubing provided is enough for 3 or 4 substances? I guess i'm trying to gauge if I need to hit home depot first for more tubing
The second question I had was about the metal chassis. The chassis has two screws in the top and at the back, it seems that the front panel swings forward and up to allow for easy cleaning, maintenance, etc. However the machine I have doesn't have the back corners of the chassis "ground down" or notched to allow for clearance when the front swings open... Is this correct? or has this been changed in future designs already, or is the font pannel supposed to be secured down at additional points and somehow my is free swinging?
Third question has anyone used a molex adapter/connector and created a quick connect for their paste extruder? If so how is it working out? I don't really want to disconnect and reconnect my extruder all the time and would like to use just a nice quick connect.
Fourth question, what materials has most people been using and what are the settings they've found successful (as a base to start out at on your printer) to start printing at, e.g. chocolate settings vs humas settings.
Last question Anyone have a custom bracket yet created in .stl format for mounting the end nozzle on a replicator2x and or a rostock maxv2?
thanks in advance!
