3D Printer extruder PEEK insulator meltdown

[felix-extruderv4-peek-meltdown] chrono : Uhhhh, H0u5t0n, I have some good and some bad news H0u5t0n : Bad news chrono : I think we have a problem with F3l1ks H0u5t0n : Could you be a bit more specific? chrono : Well, seems as if the beige plastic element of extruder 0 melted H0u5t0n : You mean the beige PEEK insulator between the hot- and cold-end? chrono : Affirmative H0u5t0n : How did that happen? chrono : I was prepping him for a new job, manually set the target temp of …

At long last the Felix 3.0B upgrade parts have finally arrived last week and the picoPrint 3D Printer underwent a complete overhaul. On Friday night the printer was completely disassembled, except for the bare frame. All printed plastic parts (V2.0) were packed away (as a backup for now) and all screws, nuts and other metallic parts took a bath in WD-40 for 24 hours and were cleaned, re-sorted and stored in the original container. Having only sunday left, the assembly of the 3.0B went up to th…

Monday Night Hacking

Tonight's work will be another live-stream, hacking on F3l1ks. After the 3D Printer extruder PEEK insulator meltdown, it seemed prudent to verify that the temperatures, shown and logged by octoprint are actually the temperatures of the bed or the hot-end.

Every Hackerspace or FabLab needs manufacturing capabilities in order to dramatically increase the edge of research and development possibilities. Where ever we go or whatever technical problem we might encounter, we can just build the parts we or others need to solve that problem. So, in the end of 2013, we had another look at the 3D printer market and a lot seemed to have happened since the RepMan. Almost all major tinkerer suppliers had some form of 3D printer to offer ranging between 600-900…
