@tinken Thanks for this information. I bought the Pulse XE with the 32 bit upgrade too, and have had mixed results. It seemed to do a lot better printing Carbon X than Ryno, petg or PLA.
I would be very interested in anything that can improve the performance.
@thwclw Thanks I went for the visuals too right now its I think about 4 kg of HIPS about 20 608 bearings and almost 100 nuts and bolts. if you Want your own all the files are here
you wont print it on a pulse though. This one needs a 300x300 bed or larger as the big ring holder are 286mm end to end. I used HIPS cause I pick it up for less than $10/kg and so its less of a problem if you have to reprint something cause it doesnt fit then if you use Nylon
Now this is one you might be able to print on a pulse
The Holder is ABS the gears and Rim Nylon 910 and the tire TPU.
All was printed on a Chiron
Here's a study claiming effective EMI shielding with "Graphene" filled filaments - I didn't delve into it, just stumbled across it and then saw your post:
@thwclw Thanks Rn working on making the electronics It will get a current controlled DUI motor driver - actually 3 controlled by and arduino. We will see how much this thing will be able to put out input will be 3x 4 in/lb at 4100 rpm
@bni I would do 2 things
1.) Make an enclosure for the Ender 5 this is the first of a series of videos on that
2.) 240 is going to be too low for nylon so I would upgrade to an all metal hotend - He covers that too in the parts following the one mentioned above.
ABS ASA I print on the chiron with ultrabase (coated glass) at 105 C bed and 260 nozzle with enclosure and Nylon too at 260-280 nozzle and 80-90 bed - again with enclosure. And I run the materials well dried directly from my print dry (converted food dehydrator)
@lhawes To dial in extrusion multiplier I use this
and Then measure with a caliper. The walls are 1, 1.25, 1.5, 2, 3mm respectively it also can show some slicing problems like if there are gaps and/or lets say the 1 mm is dead on but the 2mm one is way off. It has enabled us to tune the printers to a point where we can print stuff in HIPS (which we pick up for $10 or less / kg and get all the problems worked out and then print it in Taulman 910 and expect dimensional accuracy to the point. So I can print a planetary in a mix of HIPS. ABS, PETG and Nylon and expect it to mesh - not that I wanted to do that as a practical thing
@macks1819 So if its not listed its pretty easy to figure out. ABS has a density of 1.04g/cm3 So 750g are 750/1.04 = 721 cm3 so the cross section of the filament is circular with a diameter of 1.75 that is a radius of .875mm so applying r2*PI - about 2.4 mm3/mm of filament or 0.0024 cm3 per mm 1m = 1000mm so 1m = 2.4 cm3 of filament 721/2.4 = aprox. 300 meters on a 750 g 1.75mm spool or about 400m on a 1kg spool. Now you can do the math for a 2.85mm or for PLA where the density is about 1.27g/cm3 etc.
As you are paying by weight you are getting about 25% more prints out of ABS then you get out of PLA.
