It's on the list of materials:1x Water tap extension - 3/4" UNC threads --- 1/2" German Inch - 50mm long, 27mm diameter (one core thread and one exterior thread)1x End cap 1/2It's a water tap extension like this: https://www.amazon.com/Thread-Extension-Female-Chr..And an end cap like this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002SAS3UE/ref=p...
I'm currently struggling with the filament diameter. The extruded filament is too inconsistent, sometimes it measures 1.40mm, sometimes 1.70mm sometimes 2mm, so it's unusable for 3D printing. I just ordered a Filawinder to see if that helps create a steady line of filament :)
at Step9 you are using a brass adapter to couple the bigger Banheater to a smaller pipe? can you describe the dimensions please
There's not supposed to be a gap between the auger and the pipe, the auger should fit perfectly inside of the pipe. Otherwise, it means that your pipe is too big, or your auger is too thin
I need help. I dont know how to setup the pid controller. I have tried and my heater burned. And i dont know how to setup the pid to control the temperature of the heater ;/ - Farahhh
the plastic hes to be dry no moisture pre hitet to 60 deg. - BozidarA
Thanks a lot for your suggestion. I was playing around with the settings yesterday and finally fixed the problem. All I needed to do was to lower the temperature of my extruder and also reduce the motor speed, that made the bubbles dissapear :) - och
I had the same problem, and I can gladly help you :)Email me at email@example.com - och
I'm in need of help :(I built this extruder and works perfectly, but when I try to create filament using PLA, the filament contains lots of bubbles that render the filament useless. I'm using a mesh filter on the water tap, but that does not stop bubbles from getting into the filamemet
where do you get pellets?
