@intj123 Glad to hear that is working out for you. I am sure if you are a hobby printer, you can get away with a lot.
Unfortunately, it does not work that way for me. I have been manufacturing plastics for over 40 years. I work with many different types of plastics and I have pioneered in this industry. It depends on the quality you are looking for. My plastic parts work under extreme pressure. Some of the plastics I work with have to be heat treated for 10 days at 500°C. What I do is not mythical. Nylon must be extruded very dry and with no moisture or you will have steam at the extrusion die and that can cause irregularities and weakness.
@intj123 It did take a few rolls to build. I believe it was about 7 rolls. But the kids really enjoyed it as it came along. Gave me ideas for a robot build I have been working on and makes for an interesting conversation starter lol. I personally think this is the kind of "STEM" project that should be had in high schools or even started in junior high.
Also, sometimes the pin sticks inside the BLtouch. This has nothing to do with the BLarmor. The cure that we have found so far is to take the pin out and add TinkSeal to the pin. Then wipe the pin completely clean with a soft cloth. This adds a dry slick nano-particle surface to the BLtouch pin.
@larsbrubaker I would love to have a dual extrusion printer as long as it could print Nylon. I want to play with parts that have a carbon fiber interior for structural strength and a Kevlar exterior for high wear surfaces.
