Re: Rough Quality on Half of Print

I used some silicone grease on the axes and the prints are much better now.

Promega Quad Getting Started

Since receiving my Promega Quad I have discovered that there isn't a lot of info or official support. Here's what I've done to get started printing with mine. Maybe this will be helpful to others. The unboxing and assembly instructions are good. Follow those to clear out all packaging and get it pro...

Re: Reversed filament drives

I have a Promega Quad that did the same thing out of the box. I flipped all the extruder connectors on the board and it solved the problem.

Re: Promega Quad to K'Tana

I have done more testing and I am still hitting problems due to limited support for the Quad head. I have started investigating what it will take to swap it out. Using the Quad setup guide for the Promega and comparing the steps to what my machine has and what parts are available in M3D's online sto...

Re: Out of box issues

I had similar results right out of the box with my Promega Quad and Cura. None of the provided profiles worked very well. M3D support recommended Voxelizer because they have been working with them specifically. I just did a test with Voxelizer and was able to get a much higher quality print. The onl...

Promega Quad to K'Tana

I have a Promega Quad. I believe the K'Tana might be much better in single color prints that only need support material as a secondary. If that is the case and I decide to swap that out, do I just need the K'Tana sub-assembly they sell or are there additional components I would need?
