    Yeah you definitely want this to be tighter. See if you can attain settings to lower the pressure on the print a bit, for example flow settings.
    If you used the same brand of filament for both...

    3D printing is just a different beast compared to traditional manufacturing. It behaves differently and is suited for different kinds of business processes and product assemblies.
    That is why it is...

    The Trinus looks like a great device,affordable but only for the North American market.
    Snapmaker is a great alternative, a very similar build also with laser and CNC toolheads. They haven't run an...

    You may want to take a look at the fantastic Wanhao Duplicator 5s.
    It is very reliable and great quality.
    I am looking into developing it into a dual, possibly triple extruder in the future.

    I have printed a lot of quads though mostly triangles.

    During the Dutch Design week several things around 3D printing were presented:
    - a modified Ultimaker 2 for biocomposites (think mushrooms,...

    I agree, open model sharing is a great benefit plus it empowers people in using their own creativity.
    This is a democratization of traditional plant-based manufacturing.
    My vision is that in the...

    We just ran the first tests in flexible filament. FlexPLA works wonderfully even when printing at normal speeds of 50 mm/s. It looks like it prints as smoothly as normal PLA so you can amp up the...

    We can do something like 3D printer roasts, or razzie type awards for innovations that will flop.
    We have since Cubify learned that people want anything but proprietary filament.
    Ideally, we would...

    Velleman K8200 (aka 3Drag in the USA) are well engineered machines. With the printbed moving, their accuracy is a bit coarser than other printers. But it is easy to operate and very reliable. I have...

    Try printing at 195, 45mm/s and 99% flow.
    Reduce layer height to 0.15mm for better overhangs.
    Of course, lowering the layer height and speed will always result in better prints.
    Instead of...

    Yes most PETT and PETG filaments are food-safe as is PLA. Look for grading for this specific brand as they still may contain some volatiles.
    And it's best making sure you deburr the part well of...

    Yessir, there is 3DF Zephyr which is quite good though a bit heavy on the processing.
    Also there is Agisoft Photoscan for a comparable pricing.
    Both these can do batch processing as well.

    Overall, Mooz looks like a steal of a deal.
    Yet looking closer there are some 'hooks and eyes' as the Dutch proverb goes.
    Like, why does there have to be a Mooz 2 at all? And why is the mixing head...

    Yeah that fan makes as much sense as a solar powered freight truck.
    To improve cooling you can use an external fan.
    A lower layer height will improve your overhangs as well.

    Well with Netfabb you can always do some measurements to see if it will fit.
    Since you can buy about 1,000 phone cases for the price of a workable 3D scanner.

    Have you used the same filament in the other extruder as well? Otherwise you are not ruling out issues with the filament.
    Some cheap filaments start to bead up above certain temperatures. Rather...

    I am curious if anyone has directly worked with both a Lulzbot and Ultimaker to see the pros and cons of the leading direct drive and bowden feed systems.

    I would love to hear from anyone who has owned both a Lulzbot and Ultimaker for several years, so we can compare.

    I don't get the Ultimaker 2Go. Students cannot afford it, and the ones that can can also afford to drive a car to transport larger machines. Right, this one frees up more space for groceries or fits...
