I am making a dual extruder printer but also wish to have a dedicated fan for each nozzle which is independently active. Most controller boards I have seen seem to only have one fan even if it supports 2 nozzles. So do you think it is bad to basically unplug one fan an then plug another in while power it being supplied to the fan?
Hello, my name is Joe Eckert and I'm the Operations Director at a small nonprofit called Access Independence that works with people with any type of disability. In response to repeated cuts to State and Federal funds, two years ago we started a 3D services program where all revenue goes to support our disability services.
My left extruder hasn't worked in quite some time. The fan on the left is also broken. The filament refuses to load, and no filament is stuck in there (I've tried to clean it like the right, but nothing helped). What can I do to fix it?
I need some 2.2 inch red balls printed with ninjaflex for a 1950's stand-up arcade game. Dual extuder would be the best bet as it would probably need a solid support. Anyone fitting the bill please comment.
When I first received my printer just before December the 25th (QIDITECH Dual Extruder), I was able to set-up and print two models which came out good. Since then I've had zero success, to keep things simple I'm trying to print just a very simple model to ensure the settings are correct and that the printer will work.
Hello! Currently running a Prusa i3 mk2s with MMU I came to the conclusion that: - it's a great printer
My CDC 3D printer (dual extruder) has a problem about 15 min into the print. The extruder seems to work normally when the print is starting but stops outputing plastic after 15 min enough time to put the print base on the platform. I tried multiple prints and the problem is the same.
I just bought an ATOM 2.5EX Printer, this is my 2nd printer but 1st one with dual extrusion. i have some Nylon+CF filament that i want to use. but for support, i had this idea, since Nylon is resistant to Acetone (from Googling and my long time ago engineering degree) >>https://www.calpaclab.com/nylon-chemical-compatibility-chart/
**Update: Sold** For sale! Never moved after initial install. Will need to arrange freight shipping, but will come in original packaging. This is the Plus which features 12x12x24" build volume and dual extruders for multi-color prints. Email Houston3dprints 'at' gmail.com for questions.
hey guys so I'm looking to get my second printer I want dual extrusion I will be using this to print mech mod ecigs and very detailed figures could anyone point me in the right direction thanks
Hi, I bought a new FlashForge Creator Pro about a month ago and everything was going great until the left nozzle stopped working a few days ago. After some minutes with it, I managed to put it to work again, It had a clog.
-1 Hello, I'm trying to perform double extrusion wit PLA+ and PVA but I'm unable to get it work. the PVA supports are not forming correctly and there's a lot of Oozing Attached image. My current configuration is: PLA: 200°C 50mm/s PVA: 190*C 25mm/s PLATE: 60°C FAN (ON) Where is my misconfiguration? :(
I'm brand new on the 3D printing scene and just got put in charge of my company's new 3D printer (we basically drew straws...), a MakerBot 2X. We want to see if 3D printing will be useful for us for prototyping/making fixtures before we purchase more printers.
I recently updated my Powerspec 3d pro 2 (more or less a rebranded flashforge creator pro) printer's firmware to the newest release of sailfish. Since then, changing tools fails. I have tried replicatorG and Simplify 3d. when using simplify 3d, I seem to have something along the lines of: -start printing correctly with right extruder -tool moves 35mm right in order to line up the left extruder
Hi I'm very new to 3d printing I just got my first printer a little over a month agoit is a ctc dual I think thats the name of itI have been trying to find an answer all over the place and am seeing a lot of conflicting information or at least I'm not quite getting it
I have a Monoprice 3D Ultimate and am wondering if it is possible to upgrade it to have dual extruders, how would I go about doing so and if it would even be worth the time and effort? The main reason I want to do this is to understand how it works and be able to do better quality prints by using materials like PVA.
Hi! I'm relatively new to 3-D printing and would like to know if there is any way to use the soluble support structure material on a Mojo printer to create a 2-color print, namely a two-color nameplate.
I really want to buy a 3d printer with dual color printing as one color is just so plain, The 3d printer has no requirments. It does not have to be only a 3d printer with dual color it could also be a 3d printer with one extruder but a multi color nozzle. Thank you -Mopmop111
Hi, Is there anyone out there capable of printing us a prototype that consists of a rigid core with elastomeric extensions? Ultimately, it will be co-extruded in UPVC and plasticised PVC, but we need to evaluate it before investing in the die.
Hello, I work in the IT department of a high school, and a new proposal for a makerspace has come up. I have been asked to select which printers the school will be purchasing come the fall. We're looking for two or three different printers. I'm partial to the Prusa i3 MK2 for at least one of them, as it is a great value and has plenty of features that prevent it from destroying itself.
