DAB PrintBot Jr. Update.

Posted by DAB Top Member Dec 29, 2014
Hi All,   I finally got a good print yesterday. It turns out that Slicer will over ride you printer settings unless you explicitly tell it not to. I also reduced the verticle slice size and increased the extruder temperature.   I also set up the printer for 80% fill for the open areas and this gave the final print the solidity I was looking for.   Now I can start the process of looking at designs to try for the neck brace.   More later.   DAB ...
Information This Roadtest has been done on an "Engineering Release" version of the product so there may be differences to the released product   For my first few prints I thought I'd make some toys for the family, the results would not be critical and they should give the printer a bit of a work out.   Before each print the printer does a short purge of the print material and cleans the tip using the little wiper at the front, it's important to clean this off periodically otherwise ...

Robox to the rescue

Posted by dougw Top Member Dec 25, 2014
Christmas day - my daughter closes the car door on her coat which has her cell phone in the pocket. This kills the phone. I happen to have an slightly older unlocked phone that I use less than once per month so we simply swap SIM cards right? - but the cards are not compatible. She has a Micro SIM card and I have a Mini SIM card. It is Christmas Day, so no stores are open to buy an adapter. But Wait, I'm just road testing a Cel Robox 3D printer - why not print off an adapter. Great - 3 minutes l ...
I have been road testing a Cel Robox 3D printer for a few days now and having a great time exploring the possibilities and printing interesting items. In keeping with the season I thought I would print a star for our Christmas tree. It came out great, so I stuck it on a plastic rod so it could be secured to the tree. However as soon as my granddaughter saw it she immediately transformed it into a magic wand and it never did make it to the tree. The great thing about having a printer is that you ...
Information This Roadtest has been done on an "Engineering Release" version of the product so there may be differences to the released product   The Robox case and mechanism feels very robust, with a mix of metal and plastic, it's held together with lots of hex socket screws. The case is split into two parts with the reel and electronics on the left and the printing space on the right. The top, front and right side provide great viewing area to see the printing in process.   The pr ...
Information This Roadtest has been done on an "Engineering Release" version of the product so there may be differences to the released product As per the software the documentation looks smart and professional but needs a little polishing to get it perfect. The following might sound a little pedantic but please don't think that I'm being negative, my comments are there so things can be improved.   The first bit of documentation you'll see is the wrapper on the box. That's followed by a ...
Information This Roadtest has been done on an "Engineering Release" version of the product so there may be differences to the released product   Fellow roadtester dougw mentioned that he'd had to upgrade his video card to run the automaker software so I thought I'd also check my machine which is a Dell OptiPlex 755 from a few years back. It's the ultra small form factor so there's no option to do any upgrades.   I downloaded the Automaker software and it reported a problem. I ha ...

DAB Printerbot Jr. Update

Posted by DAB Top Member Dec 19, 2014
I took this picture to show everyone what I mean when I talk about threading.   The black object came with the printer to show what the printer made before it was shipped. The white object is my test print.  While they look similar,  I can separate the layers with my thumb nail, so they are not solidly fused as they are with the black print.   So my next print I will adjust the vertical print size so that the layers are more compressed.  From the picture, you can se ...

DAB 3D Printer update.

Posted by DAB Top Member Dec 16, 2014
Hi All,   I managed to make some time to rerun the 3D printed object with the higher temperature and the default feed rate.   The final print still had a threading texture, but when I looked closely, I could see the separation between each layer.   So at this point, I need to go back and look at the settings for each layer.  Clearly the steps are larger than they should be.   I will post another update after I have some time to look over the settings and double check ...

Another DAB 3D Printer Update

Posted by DAB Top Member Dec 12, 2014
Hi All,   I finally had some time to make some adjustments to the Printerbot Jr. Unfortunately I changed two things at once, so I will need to run another test.   To recap, the last part print test I ran resulted in a product where the bottom layers did not fuse together, causing the layers to separate. Following the suggestions from some of the members, I adjusted the injector temperature to 206 degrees. That change will keep the filament at a higher temperature as it flows out o ...
element 14 bestows prestigious badges on members, with different badges signifying various accomplishments. This project is an attempt materialize these badges, but rather than simply printing out a colour image of the badges this project will design and print 3D medallions. To showcase the various badges on the desktop, a business card holder was designed that can accommodate up to 6 medallions, one in each of the circular pockets. Here is an image of the card holder and some images of typic ...
