Hi All,

I totally missed the registration of our newest user - I'm lucky I saw it when I did.

I just didn't see the email, so there was quite a delay before they were activated.

My apologies!

Hi All,

I believe that our site email problems are solved, so therefore I have re-enabled new user registrations.

Let us know if you see any issues with the site sending email.

If you do notice a problem you should be able to send to us at: fabric8rsite@gmail.com

Thanks,
Admin

Posted by: Administrator - 2020-06-17, 07:21 PM - Forum: News and Announcements - No Replies

Hi All,

While I work out our site email issues, I've disabled new user registrations.

Anyone trying to register wouldn't really make it through the process anyway.

I expect this situation will last for at least several days, but more likely a week or two. It's an area I'm not super familiar with, and I just don't have the time to put into it.

Registrations will re-open as soon as possible.

Sorry for the inconvenience,
Stan

I’m glad I found this forum, there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of info out there. Anyway.... I’m relatively new to 3D printing, but not new to building. I guess by most people’s standards I would still be considered a newbie, I have been doing this for 7 or 8 months. I have a thing for small printers, I have a few Kickstarter printers already (yes I have an addictive personality lol) I stumbled on an old review on the OneUp... you guessed it, I need one!(or 3). Does anybody have any idea where I might be able to find a OneUp? I have found a TwoUp version2 and a version3, I can’t really find anything that shows what the differences are between them, any ideas? currently have the following

Cetus MK1, MK2, MK3
Trinus/Panowin F1
PrintrBot Simple Metal
PrintrBot original Kickstarter (still new in the box) 

Thanks in Advance 
Dom

Hi All!

I'm pretty sure the email setup for the site just suffered a malfunction - so new user emails may not be going out right now.

I hope to have it straightened out soon.

Hi All,

If you were lucky enough to see it, the third-party theme that the site had been using for years exploded Smile.

Apparently, some images served from a remote site were removed. I had no idea there were remotely hosted images involved, or I never would have selected the theme.

At any rate, I've had to fall back to the default theme. I tossed an old attempt at a logo in as well.

Please let me know if you notice any functional issues that need to be addressed.

Thanks! And welcome to the (highly unexpected) new look for the forum!

Stan

Hi All,

The theme I have been using forever apparently relies on an image from an external server.

Morons.

So, I'm tracking it down now....

Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

Hi all,
   We know how hard it is to keep our children learning right now. For that reason we're doing what we can to put together affordable projects that can be easily used at home. The first of these is (quaran)tinyBot, available for preorder now. If you're looking for a good STEM education platform, please keep us in mind.

  I made a 2.5up...but I need spare parts!!!
Posted by: WolfBrownie - 2020-04-03, 01:21 AM - Forum: Q3DPrinter (formerly QU-BD) Specific Discussion - Replies (18)

Hi All, cool to find this group on my printer so long after I bought it.  

My "2.5up" looks mostly like a standard 2up but it has a second Z-axis motor to lift the opposite end and behind the lateral head axis.   I also replaced the controller A fastbot BBP 1s.  It has a built in server so it's just an Ethernet device on my network.   It has the stone heated bed.  I put in mechanical limit switches.

I ran a few tests and found one issue.  Because all the movement torque is applied along only one edge of the table, it torques/twists then relaxes.   It happens every step of the stepper motor.

So I want to run a shaft extension across to the other side of the platform and add a second belt so both sides are pulled at the same time.

So here is my dilemma...  I can't find a new 12 tooth 5mm bore 3mm pitch [I  think 3mm is what it uses] timing pulley.   Does the original manufacturer still even exist?   Or a source for one?

Anyone out there ever change out the pulleys on their machine for a different one and have one from the original they'd like to sell me?

Thanks folks!
Bill

  Trouble on Login?
Posted by: MisterAcoustic - 2020-03-17, 11:17 PM - Forum: Site Discussion - No Replies

Hi All,

I know most of you aren't logging in here when you do drop by, but I wanted to ask if anyone has been having trouble logging in.

I logged in this evening, and when I was redirected to the forum home page, it didn't show me as logged in. It only showed me logged in after I refreshed the page manually.

Anyone else seeing this?

Thanks,
Stan
