Hi All

My new Maker Select V2 is up and running, made a test print and it came out great. Bad news is the first PLA won't be in until Friday, Bummer. I have to build a 7 volt meter holder with switches first to fit on/in the camper pack to keep up with it. Great time and lots of fun.

Looks very cool! A little reading up on it speaks of a few Mods required, but most you make the parts with the unit.

One talked of temperature control, but showed a simple grounding Mod to cure it.

Another was just re-calibrating the feed speed. As he put it, the feed was just too fast allowing the material to cool, stop, then spit out a glob.. He reset the feed speed and cured the issue.
Also believe he was using a higher temp filament than what is recommended for it.

For the tweaks I've been reading (all being pretty simple) and the cost of this unit, looks real cool!

May ask you to make me a loading disc/stick for my PCP Rifle!! To hard to load it with my scope in place..
I'll need to lookup the software it uses again!

Hi ODR

I am using cura for the slicer and sketchup 2016 for the design part so you get your setup and post it and I will help, right now I only have PLA but I also am leaving for the gold mine in a week and the printer will stay behind MONTH long
