Nothing like the smell of duck and goose guano in the morning. Crushed my 5K this morning. Took a day of vacation in preparation for Joan Jett tonight! #Don'tGiveADamnAboutMyBadReputation
My Chinese knockoff of the E3D V6 hot end has become a clogging machine. Every #3Dprint ends with extruder stepper chug and an air print. I read that many of their fans just don't move enough air so I printed an adapter for a 40mm fan. Still clogging. Next step is replacing the heat break.
New problem uncovered on my #Ender3 #3Dprinter is that the bed levelling knobs turn during the print, changing the level of the bed while printing. A look at the original levelling knob in the attached pics shows a pressed in brass thread. Brass is very soft and becomes very easy to turn with use. My solution is the blue knob in the pictures. It has a captive nyloc M4 nut in it. This also required locking down the leveling screw with a nylon washer and nyloc nut. Also had to move the Z stop switch up some.
Today I bought some of these for holding #3Dprinter hardware. The dividers don't move and the bottoms are rounded. If you've ever had a removable divider creep up on you and let small hardware get mixed or spent 5 minutes drying to dig an M3 nut out of a corner, you would appreciate one of these.
