  • Mindless posted a new activity comment 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    I’ve never heard a bad thing said about “Build Tanks”,,,,
    I got to get back to the grind,,, the only thing I can think off without doing mod work on your printer is un-bolt the small fan and turn it around so its blowing up instead of down onto your print,,, and slow the fan speed down ,, (the flaw with design is they set both fan to the one s…[Read more]

    “nice looking system but really designed for ABS-“–meant to say “PLA”

    • OK, I’ll bite. What is it?

      • ? a brand new dual extrusion head with coolers for the object and the extruders? Cooling the upper part of the extruder can prevent clogging – good. Enjoy the pic – once you start printing it won’t look as good as now!
        for ooze free multiple extrusion in a single object have a look at this

        https://www.multec.de/Extruder_1

        • It’s a dual extruder upgrade for the Vertex K8400 3D printer from Velleman. I can easily identify it, since I have the same printer for almost 2 years now. It works very well for PLA printing. It makes it possible to print different colors, but more importand, different materials. I tried it about a year ago, but at that time I have print quality…[Read more]

  • Mindless posted a new activity comment 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    Well you can print with ABS,, its going to be harder to get the first layer and the rest of print without warpping-,, not really the best machine for a beginner to learn on,,, if you can find a way not to have the fan blowing onto the print ,,but just on the hotend ,,, it should fix the problem,,,

  • Mindless posted a new activity comment 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    I found your problem,,, you “must use” the fan on your extruder system,, it seams there peek style hotend is different from the original one,,,, so abs is never going to print without warping,,

  • Mindless posted a new activity comment 3 months, 2 weeks ago

    Ok,, Abs is difficult to print with,, very clean glass works well I need to print with abs (which is not very often)- make sure the fans are of turned “off” The K8400 look like they’re using a “peek” style of hotend so you don’t need them ,, unlike the ED3V6,,,– slow the print speed down – 30mm/sec for perimeters and 60mm/sec for infill- ,, Th…[Read more]

    Infill %- varies from part to part- most people use the standard- 30% with 3 Perimeters and 3 solid layers, which is good allrounder, personally I use a different setting for every different part, it just depends on what the part is for- the best wire to use is the type that doesn’t catch on fire….lol
