Cube 3D Printer

Postby iSteve » Thu Mar 14, 2013 12:53 am

So I bit the bullet and bought a Cube 3D printer as i needed something turnkey.

however its not without some initial setup problems,
setting the gap between the printhead and plate proved to be a pain in the Butt!
the instructions / setup guide not very helpful, even after several calls to USA,
theres a cubifyfan blog so I emailed Tom and he was able to clarify the procedure.

So with the help of Autodesk 123D Ive been printing.

Good to hear it's all working.

At the last 3D Printing night at the Connected Community Hackerspace we had two people with Cubes printing away. I think one of the guys was called Tom, but it may be a different Tom for all I know.

They're usually on the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month, in Hawthorn (near Swinburne uni). They start at about 6-6:30pm and go till about 10pm.

Next meetup is on the 18th of March (this Monday).

You can find the website for our hackerpsace at: http://www.hackmelbourne.org/

You can find our location details (including PT and parking options) at: http://www.hackmelbourne.org/about-cchs/location/

We also have a page on Meetup.com where you can register your interest at: http://www.meetup.com/Connected-Communi ... Melbourne/

Note: We hold a lot more events than just the 3D Printer night, so they all appear on our meetup page and on our website calendar. The calendar on our website comes out of our Google Calendar, so if it gets updated the website updates automatically. You can also subscribe to the Google Calendar so the events appear in your calendar.

Hope this is enough info. ;)

At last, you resolved that issue. BTW, have you 3D printed some stuff so far? Often times, it’s the machine which malfunctions in 3D printing. I experienced it when I used my spools of 1.75mm plastic ABS and PLA filament from 3D2print. My Bukobot 3D printer only supports 3mm diameter of ABS and PLA. Mates, find time which diameter and types of plastic filament are compatible with your 3D Printer.

If you have any issues with parts that are broken, let us know, as I'm sure someone could print you 2-3 replacement bits easily.

Though I don't know how many of us have pink. You'd have to settle for purple or perhaps black, which at least would match the extrusions!
