  Broken Email!
Posted by: Administrator - 2020-06-17, 01:04 AM - Forum: News and Announcements - Replies (1)

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.

  Emergency Site Maintenance
Posted by: MisterAcoustic - 2020-04-17, 11:48 PM - Forum: Site Discussion - No Replies

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!

  SORRY! Image problem!
Posted by: MisterAcoustic - 2020-04-17, 11:25 PM - Forum: Site Discussion - No Replies

Hi All,

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


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

Hopefully it will be fixed soon.

  Options for STEM learning during stay-at-home

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. Available here: https://mimicrobots.com/products/quarant...6649772134

  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!

  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?

Hi All,

This thing is not ready for prime time yet, but the speed of it will sit you right down.

The video contains slightly accelerated recordings of the printing process - but only about 2x. The 'Benchy' printed in about 30 seconds.

Hi All,

We've had a few new members join the forums, but sadly, there hasn't been much activity to keep them coming back.

I have been swamped with life stuff for a while, and I haven't been able to stir up any discussion myself.

If you have any projects you're working on, please make a post here and let us in on the fun!

Surely the maker trend hasn't died down that much already Smile.

If I can ever finish getting some cabinets installed, I may develop a project of my own (hopefully before winter is out).

In the meantime, jump in here and tell us what you've got!

  New User Activation

Hi All,

I just wanted to reiterate that new user activations may take some time. Our most recent user caught me at a bad time, and I didn't get to activate them for about 17 hours. I apologize for the delay, but between sleep and work, I can't always do the activations right away.

I'm doing my best though Smile

Hi All,

I haven't tracked down the issue yet, but there is some evidence that there is a problem with some of the registration emails.

Everyone who has registered that I am aware of has had their account activated. If any recently registered folks can't log in to the forum, please let me know the details of the problem at fabric8rsite@gmail.com.
