Re: Must-have promega idler/gearbox mods!

You should have gotten a set of instructions. They're pretty good. What in particular are you having problems with?

BTW, if you've lost them, you can download the instructions from here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1whg ... sp=sharing

Re: Discord?

Honestly, the most active community for the Promega is on Facebook. I think the Discord channel collapsed under its own weight, as I suspected it would.

Re: Does the Promega Unbound Glass Fiber print sheet just suck?

I'm still printing on glass with glue stick on my Crane after my experiment with the Unbound sheet on two printers (Crane and Promega), especially now that I know the trick to quickly and easily removing old glue from the glass: it's as simple as spritzing the bed with water and then dragging a putt...

M3D color calibrated opaque filament discontinued?

I just went out to their website and all traces of opaque color-calibrated filament are gone. It's probably a marketing move: the results aren't good with opaque filament (toothpasting), so it makes the printer look bad.

Re: New filament Tube alternatives

It's a weatherproof plastic box I got at Walmart. It has foam seals along the edge of the lid and latches that lock it down against the box rim. The only holes through it are for the filament to come out, and I used 3D-printed filament feeders for those holes (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:17508...

Re: New filament Tube alternatives

I feed filament from a dry box I constructed that sits on a shelf above the printer.

Re: New filament Tube alternatives

Most of us just leave the top off, get rid of the tubes, and run the filament straight into the extruder from above.

Re: Assembly of the Crane

I had the same issue with the head when I got mine. It was wobbling pretty badly on the X rail.

Re: Frustrating corexy skipping

Are you using a glass sheet, glass fiber sheet, or a sticker on the bed itself? The IR probe is pretty worthless for glass and probably worthless for the glass fiber. It might be OK for a matte black sticker on the bed though.

Re: Frustrating corexy skipping
