    Thats cool, "draft shield" though? Is it intended to block a draft?

    Power supply fan

    Im going to be powering it from my 24-12v converter which is now directly connected to the psu ( not on the controller board header ). Cooling wise, do psu's need alot of cooling, or more of a steady flow of cool air?

    Power supply fan

    I have a 24v 350watt psu on my 3d printer. I want to swap out the noisy fan for a larger quieter one. Is there anything specific i need to know ? Its currently using a 6015 generic fan and id like to put a 92mm 1500rpm. Plus, would replacing the metal cover (where the fan is mounted) with a...

    3D Printer Essentials? (Or maybe better named as "Adventures in Newb 3D Printing" )

    Holy crap , you are patient! I would have said fk it after the first attempt and just bought it locally. Your patience will be rewarded!

    Alrighty, turns out your extruder motor needs to be installed on something solid.. the bungee cord setup was causing random under extrusions when the filament coil got tight. I fixed it to a solid surface with the same design and it works flawlessly, also no more clicking ! Im currently...

    You think 28awg is too small? Edit: Found 24awg speaker wire, is that ok?

    Ok great, I do have an extra hdmi lying around. Is there any advantage (asides from aesthetics) from buying extensions?

    Thanks! Nope! Not for one second man. Its too much fun! I cant ever see this getting old . On a second thought does anyone know if theres anything wrong about making DIY stepper motor wire extensions? ie splice longer wires onto my existing wires, leys say using 18gauge wiring?

    But, wouldn't having it hanging centered above the build plate reduce the amount "curves" in the bowden tube creating a more straight and shorter path to the hotend?

    Makes sense, thanks for your opinion! Do you think the extruder needs to be attached to a solid surface to work? Like could it in theory be hung from something, so it can move?

    I think its real, at least the price was "real" lol.. it came with the cutter and a cardboard tag.. this one Here is my setup

    3D Printer / CNC discussion thread

    Basically i wanted to reduce the amount of bends the Bowden tube experiences in certain positions as it moves around the build plate. I have the mod linked above which repositions the feeder onto the top which does shorten the Bowden tube significantly but introduced some weird loops in certain...
