Print of the Day

Here are the trials today, for the benefits of Tian Cheng and Francis;

The feed rate was too much, causing the parts over filled (Bottom row)(1->2->3). I increased the program to fill more as well. the final pieces on bottom right was much better after correction, but too bad the part fell off the platform and I had to stop. I think it is the warp that cause the trouble......

I cleaned the extruder drive screw tooth too, the grip got better and feed better/more. 2nd piece was the result, still over filled even I slow down the extruder motor. :(

Winner of the day; - y-idler-bracket (Top right)

Reprap Pulley Print

Hummm, the pulley print still needs some effort. I am guessing the material I got had some problem causing void in my prints. Anyway here's the photo of it;
