  • RE: My Spool Roller

    Wow, that looks fantastic. I love the way carbon fiber filament prints. It has such a clean surface in addition to its material advantages.

    Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    BTW, I'm planning to add your request for multiple brim layers to the next release of MatterControl. Thanks for all your constructive requests and support.

  • A few of my dual extrusion prints

    Dual Extrusion Rocks!

    I have a Pulse DXE that I just love. It has been with me for more than 2 years now, printing like a champ and helping me fix all sorts of things in my house (I'll post some of those things soon). In the meantime, here are a bunch of dual extrusion prints that I made for my kids and their friends.

    . .

     

    How did I get that curved dice?

    The other thing I do with the Pulse DXE is test new features in MatterControl.

    This curved dice is an example of an easy to use feature that can add a lot to a design. Here is a quick video of how to create this effect.

     

    Thanks for sharing your awesome designs!

    Happy Printing!

  • RE: Pulse XE Z-axis Non-destructive Switch Adapter

    We use them so that we get more precision on the z axis than a mechanical limit switch. They do cost more but are significantly more accurate.

  • RE: Pulse XE appreciation???

    Thanks @tinken, I also think MatterControl and MatterSlice are outstanding and I personally work hard to make sure they remain that way. I know everyone has their own wants and needs and @mpirringer in particular has expressed that he would like features that are not available. But we print everything with MatterControl (and we do a lot of printing) and consistently get great results.

  • RE: Twist - Merge Issue

    The Combine and Subtract operations are very sensitive to geometry being manifold or water tight. The Twist operation often produces non-manifold geometry that can be a problem for these functions. We are working on a new method to do object merging that should address these issues. This new method will also work on Mac and Linux where the current method does not.

    We currently expect this to be release in mid August.
