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

Not sure I understand the question. The Maestro has to home Y first because, otherwise, the head would likely never hit the X limit switch when ithe Maestro tried to home X. So, if you home only X through the DWC, the Maestro will automatically home Y too.

Re: Release 2.03 Maestro and Macros

I use a Metrol switch on my Z probe. It has an accuracy of +/- 5 microns. Ideally, what I want to do is implement a probe with a Metrol switch that will deploy automatically. It would be handy for bed leveling, but where it would really help is for single-probing on each print to set Z = 0. The Z en...

Re: Release 2.03 Maestro and Macros

I can't answer all your questions, but I can a few: 3. Any time you are disassembling a part of the head where molten filament has been, you should heat up the nozzle to at least 150 to soften any filament that has seeped into the cracks. 4. If you're referring to the ones that require a 1.3mm hex d...
