    Yea Nylon is kind of mushy that way. Never liked working with nylon but it is a material of choice for rugged applications.

    The Alloy 910 looks interesting. They don't give out much on the true...

    Didn't know this... Delrin printing.

    Acetal/Delrin is my engineering plastic of choice.
    Never even though to ask if we can print this stuff.
    Sure enough!

    Anyone have experience with this?

    Maybe it's just me but I think half the users of any FDM printer would be jealous of the overall quality of that print :)

    Not sure what you are seeing after sanding, but you could try a flameless heat source to try to smooth over the sanding fuzzies created by sanding. I use a butane soldering torch with the tip...

    Make sure to understand what the original equipment was. Going from 24 to 12 isn't so bad, but the reverse could be an issue.

    And i am not a fan of Amazon for comparing specifications. They are...

    The E1 error probably pops up because it simply didn't reach that temperature. that would be firmware.

    LOL... yea, that looks bad. You could consider taking up a collection for the $80 :) That is my normal route... replace and then repair. Provides future spares I will never need.

    It is saying some small segment of your file has bad data. I would suggest downloading Cura just to see if it also sees the error. Shapeways should be notified if it fails in Cura too. You can...

    Okay, that makes more sense. I'd love an FDM printer that can print a 0.4 wall in two traces since that is what my slicers will do. The only single wall elements are supports. Maybe I need to...

    Nice! That is two traces side by side or a single trace to get 0.4mm?

    I see the nozzle aperture is 0.4mm on this machine.
    What layer thickness did you use?
