Has anyone printed in Polycarbonate? I'm looking to get a spool to print some polycarbonate parts. I have a microswiss hotend, so I don't have to worry about any liner melting. What's the max temp anyone's brought their hotend up to? ...

I am in need of a 3D printer for a some personal projects and the D6 was recommended to me by a friend. The more I read the more I think the printer itself is 'the project'. Lots of respect to you all learning how to tweak / maximize capabilities of this machine, but I need something for rapid prototyping and not tinkering.

With that said, if I don't care to print as a hobby and just need something to produce prototypes with various materials (including elastomer) should I look at a different brand / model? Does it make sense to spend more up front and not require the extra hassle of upgrades? If so, what other printers should I look at?

Trying to get ir sensor dialed in.. definitely prefer printing on glass more than buildtak. Unfortunately the instructions don't exactly match what I'm seeing as readings on the duetwifi ...

Hey there - I'm new to the D6 family and working on some upgrades; I've had trouble with bridging and ordered a MicroSwiss hot end. I figure I should do something with the fans but there are about a dozen threads going on all suggesting different things in the group.

Can anyone who has been through this and tried some of the suggestions make a recommendation for me?

It sounds like I should: print a boot mold and make a boot, wrap the hot end in pyrogel (?), buy some new fans, and print a new duct.

Is that overkill?

Im starting to print with ColorFab CF (carbon filament), 250 degrees, stainless nozzle. Is it worth the extra for the MicroSwiss setup? I have had to 3/4 the print speed over PLA speed at the minute. What advantages will the upgrade give me? ...

Follow-up to my previous post: Where's the best place to buy a new main board in North America? Canada specifically, but I doubt anyone up here stocks them. I've confirmed that the T1 transistor is bad. However, because it failed randomly, I don't know if it's just the transistor that's bad. I figure if I buy a new board, I can try to make a warranty claim on the old one and have 2 boards to use 1 as a backup. Any suggestions? ...

2 questions.
1.So i have been having trouble printing ABS more than 30mm/s, layers just dont get printed of small sections ect. Is this an average/normal speed?
2.i printed the same gcode twice, one after the other. The first print came out fine. The second print however stopped half way through, i wasnt near the printer when this happened so i dont know if it came up with an error code at the time but when i got to it the cool down screen was on. There was no filament anywhere on the nozzle or in the printer other than the half printed object. Anyone had this happem before?

Were it not for this group, I would deeply regret buying the MP Ultimate. I was an Army analyst before I retired so reading up on my own before asking questions is part of my nature. Reading everything and following links has been exhausting. What do you guys think about setting up a wiki with edits restricted to members of this group? I don't want to knock this group (love you'll) but I think we can grow the community and make it easier to share info with a wiki. Thoughts? ...

I am having one of the weirdest issues right now... Every time around the same layer in this print only, the filament jams up in the heat pipe, which I have to remove to unjam. I just printed another bigger, more complicated print with the same filament which succeeded. Then, when I tried the print in question again, it failed and kept "air printing". Could there be some GCODE combo that's mushing my filament? ...
