benmalouf added a comment to T3016: Athena Program Approval (Phase Review 1).

I think the high price of those materials is a good reason to consider supporting some of them but not carrying inventory. This is another chicken or egg question. Generally, someone looking for these materials knows why, and has a good understanding of how these materials behave. If they then see that our max print temp is 290-300C, and that our printer is open to outside air, the conversation may never happen. Once we have a printer that can reach those temps, that opens the door for more conversation to find out what people actually need.

benmalouf updated subscribers of T3205: Quiver Packaging Redesign.

OK, so to summarize it seems that:

  • In general, customers like our packaging
  • The TAZ could be easier to repack to avoid damages in return shipping. One thing Michael and I had talked about was if the two bottom foam pieces were pre-spaced by being glued to a piece of cardboard that would sit in the bottom of the box. Then they wouldn't move around and roll out of the way.
  • Production would like to keep the tool head on the machine if possible. Marketing would like that too, makes set up for the user much easier, especially with the new mounting system. I'm wondering though for packaging, if the Y-stage would fit in the main printer frame with the tool head attached. @tutley Any idea? Seems like it's a tight fit on TAZ 6 even with the tool head removed.

benmalouf updated subscribers of T3205: Quiver Packaging Redesign.

Yes. I wonder if in the mean time we can decide if we want the packaging to stay generally the same with minor tweaks to fit the new machine, or if we want a bigger change. There are many changes that will require a packaging rework including the addition of cable chains, the dimensions and shape of the Y-stage, the tool head (which I assume we'd prefer to ship pre-installed?).

benmalouf added a comment to T1565: Filament jams.

Interesting. At least with the wades/hexagon-based tool heads, I tend to do the opposite. I start the hot end heating and try to back the old filament out when it softens, but before it melts completely, so I'm effectively cold-pulling every time. Saves on purging and keeps the nozzle inside cleaner. I would generally never think to "ram purge" my hot end before removing filament. I honestly can't think of why you would, except to avoid jams on Aeros. Am I alone in that? I wonder if that "ram purge" technique helps avoid having bulbs on the end of the filament that are too large for bowden tubes, even if they escape the hot end just fine.

We're having great luck with the .20 ninjaflex profile too. Although, have noticed that the layer bonding isn't great, at least on small prints. Guessing the temp is lower to reduce stringing? Or maybe too much fan?

benmalouf updated subscribers of T1565: Filament jams.

FYI, over the weekend, a reviewer reported jammed filament when testing their Mini 2. They attempted a repair by taking apart the tool head (without contacting us) but ultimately reached out when they couldn't fix it. They have been taken care of (expediting a new unit, stressed following instructions) but it supports @kent 's suggestion above as the jam sounds like the same issue.

@jessica Well, once the customer has the box open they may never close it again, so the length of the flaps is not that big of a deal from my perspective. I am curious if it would make lives easier enough in production that it would be worth it.

Kinda tough to say without knowing which filament prints the best, but Polylite has been a dream at .1 layer height so far. I don't think we need to include a glue stick unless we include a glue-stick needing material in the box.

FWIW, we've been printing both large(ish) things and super tiny things with the .1mm PLA profile and all are coming out great. Only trouble we've had so far is that the bottom layers are a little quick and that has affected bed adhesion sometimes. But we've printed some incredibly small things with great quality. If they can be improved on, great, but IMO that's a tall order. :)

benmalouf added a comment to T2605: Retail Tool Head.

@nickp Generally we require more than two weeks for projects like this (4-6 ideally). Typically a design for a retail label (the standard laser labels aside) goes through multiple revisions requiring input from multiple stake-holders. Plus we have to fit that work into our schedule around other tasks. If you need it to be rushed, it's something we can try to accommodate.

benmalouf updated subscribers of T3085: Achemon Packaging and Labeling.

@adam Two things we'd like to explore on the boxes:

  1. Cost of going to a white box
  2. Cost of tweaking the box design so the flaps don't make closing the box so difficult. This is more a problem for production (I would think) than for Marketing, but I bring it up because every time I have to close one of those boxes it's frustrating how the flaps and corvue(sp?) don't play well together. I would imagine production has a technique down that bypasses the problem, but if it's easy to fix, worth doing, IMO.

My note above regarding color is what marketing would like to go with on these new tool heads if possible. By just changing color, we will hopefully reduce the need for additional part designs and keep these moving along. To repeat from above, here's what we're thinking:
Achemon Sphinx - Black Mount
Standard Mini 2 Tool Head - LB Green Mount
Banded Tiger - Lighter Grey Mount (does ChromaStrand have a lighter grey? If not, this one may take a little more thinking.)
Dingy Cutworm - Hammer Grey Mount (same color as current MOARstruder)

@tutley Understood on all. We definitely don't want to affect the functionality (which has been great so far). Just thinking, as you were when you designed-in the nozzle size label, that there should be a visual distinction of some kind. We could stick with all black for the micro, green mount for standard, and two different greys potentially for the MOAR and .80. Alternatively, we look into what it would take to get labels to stick well to the 3D printed fan shroud. For example, could we quickly/repeatably sand down the front rectangle so there's space that a label would stick to? Kinda thinking out loud here.

@kent This looks great. Just a few bits of feedback from me:
Step 1 - May make sense to say "Aerostruder Tool Head that needs a new hot end"
Step 2 - Instead of "fasteners" maybe "M3 screws" ?
Step 6 - "Remove the assembly by wiggling and pulling." This instruction is unclear and the image doesn't show this at all. Maybe a photo of the tool head with arrows indicating the direction one should pull?
Step 7 - Should this be included if we don't sell the parts or offer information about what to look for?
Step 8 - Add a period between "remove the bearing" and "Just"
Step 9 - Should use "screws" instead of "fasteners" here as well, IMO
Step 9 - "Both heater connectors go with the open side facing the latch of the connector." this is a bit unclear, even with the image
Step 9 - "The heater and thermistor wire pairs are not polarized." I know what this means, but a user may not.

OK. One thing @DRobertson and I were talking about is whether or not there's a possibility of changes to the part designs. Color and labeling are two ways to distinguish this tool head. But we could also consider ways that the design of the parts themselves could communicate the advantages of the tool head, or at least make it look different than the standard and high-output versions.

Seems like this thread is headed in the right direction. I agree with establishing an acceptable color range. The darker green shown in the pictures would likely fall outside of that range, IMO, but it's hard to tell for sure from pictures. Regardless, probably not worth reboxing, but it would be good to pull some of these before they reach the line to start to establish how much variance we are seeing.

@kenhara Not a bad idea. We could link to a page on lb.com with details on putting the numbers back on the machine. Really, linked page could have details for doing both but I do think we want the recording step built into Cura so it's easier and people are more likely to do it.

@karrad I agree that number 2 is likely the best option of the three since they're going to have Cura open for this even if they do have the GLCD. Wording looks good in general, though I would say "Record >the reported< number,"

@tutley For clarity, is it possible for us to determine what the z-backlash was on Gladiola? I think it would help for understanding the gravity of or lack thereof of the issue.

@kent Can you describe "flat-lining"? The added thickness and consistency of the tentacles in the new model are a huge benefit over the other model, so I'm wondering how we can marry the two without losing the improvements.

FYI, this takes about 45 minutes to print using standard Polylite setting on Hibiscus. Turns out great! Nice work @DRobertson

benmalouf added a comment to T1814: Beta testing feedback.

Since starting to print with the beta and Cura 3.2.xx I've noticed that layer seams/start-stop points have been more evident in many prints. The artifacts tend to look like gaps or voids near corners or edges of mechanical parts. The part linked internally below prints great, except for those artifacts. It looks to me like the print head is not properly priming before starting those perimeter paths.

@karrad We're talking a re-skinned octopus here, not a more complex/different model, correct?
