tutley added a comment to T6017: Wiper Mount/Pad.

the thing is if we have PEEK on the nozzle it would need to melt the PEEK to clean it, which would melt the bristles.
I have been having really good success with using a wiper pad i made that is made from high temp plumbers felt that has been treated with ABS in the same manner as the current wiper pads we use

tutley added a comment to T9664: LCD Center holes do not line up with lcd board controller.

@logan is going to look at changing the XY steps to ~100.5 to get these to print at the proper size. We are going to be slightly shifting the inserts on the existing parts so the parts are still usable for the alphas. The bowing of the LCD bezel is likely because of the thin printed part. If this is still an issue when the HIPS or PVC bezels come in we will likely want to make a ticket for that and adjust the model to alleviate the problem.

tutley added a comment to T9662: Pro tool head part.

@DaniAO last time we got some from top plates from quattro that were kind of matte i believe they were sent back to be reworked. Mechanically all the tool head parts will be fine whether they are matte or have a shiny finish. I personally think they should be fine cosmetically also, but i dont think this is up to me. The back plate is not really visible when the tool head is fully assembled so i think these should be good to use

tutley added a comment to T9610: .144 firmware causes a "please wait" screen when auto homing. .

@DaniAO i know @marcio developed this when working on kangaroopaw firmware and added it into the TAZ Pro. It is definitely a bug that the screen isnt staying on please wait for the entire duration of the auto homing.
I personally dont think this should hold up production, but that's not really my call

tutley added a comment to T9606: calibration OHAI should remove adjustment of backlash.

@robert yea definitely! I think we should try and scrub the black coating off the conical portion of the nozzle prior to running calibration. It comes off pretty easily with the green scotch brite pad. Steel wool may work as well. If we can get them from E3d pre cleaned that would be ideal, but it might be a little while until we get there

tutley added a comment to T9606: calibration OHAI should remove adjustment of backlash.

@robert if you are getting out of round circles then the auto cal isnt getting a good measurement which could be related to T9604 .
If the nozzles are good and clean and can make a good electrical connection with the calibration cube you should not need to touch backlash values.
Also as i mentioned there is no clear way to determine if you need to raise or lower the lash value without using a dial indicator.

@zachah this was sliced using the standard PLA profile for both extruders. Feel free to adjust the slice to increase skirt distance. I do not think we should adjust overall print speed as that was the root of the original problem.
The cake is not printing faster than the original calibration gcode. It is much slower

also with the way the syringe collar is held in place it bows the collar mount slightly when installing the collar and could cause cracks if this is made larger.

tutley added a comment to T9257: Heatsink Fan wiring coming loose.

its ethyl cyanoacrylate so it is very close to super glue. but it is specifically formulated for tacking electronics components. and yes the other is an accelerator. We wouldnt want to permanently glue the connector down, but just a tiny dab to hold it in place and so it could still be removed without much effort if need be

@ oliver we need the syringe collar mount to be very strong. i had made them slightly larger before and was getting cracking when the syringe is under a high load. If you just turn the screw when installing through this hole the ribs on the head will shave off a tiny bit of material and it will go through easily

@logan looking at that with mark, the connector is really tight there and bends the pins. This also would be a lot of reworking rambo boards. @mjpelletier recommends hot glue or the combination of loctite 444 and loctite 7452

tutley added a comment to T9524: Pogo pin lifespan.

It says up to, so does that mean it is normally less than that?
Going off 1,000,000 cycles, a print that is the full z build height with a .5 nozzle will likely have layers somewhere between .1mm and .35mm
if .1 then that is 4500 layers, meaning you could print this 222 times before the tool head needs a new pogo pin board
if .35 that is 1285 layers, meanig you could print this 778 times before needing a new pogo pin board

tutley added a comment to T8313: Blower shroud sagging.

glass transition i think will be more along the lines of the sagging shroud as it is when the material goes from rigid to soft and rubbery which would cause the sagging.
the vicant softening is plunging a small 1mm probe 1mm deep with a set force

tutley added a comment to T9465: PP-MP0281: lead nut screws need to be threaded.

The original part did not have the lead nut mounting screw holes tapped, it was assembled with some longer screws and M3 nuts. This allowed a bit of adjustment in case of binding. I then changed the part to have m3 tapped holes on the 5 prototypes and never had a binding issue, but I never updated the drawing to reflect this change. This drawing was sent out to JMT so that is why the alpha/beta parts will not have these holes tapped.
So, the alpha/beta units will have thru holes with the lead nut mounted using 2mm longer hardware and M3 nuts (with loctite). This will function just fine but for production units we should have the tapped holes in the carriage.

tutley added a comment to T9467: PP-MP0279: Counter sink diameter needs to be big enough so M2x6 flat screw lays flushed.

It is critical that the countersinks on the lower bearing mount side of the motor mount are countersunk to a 4mm diameter. If this is not the case, the M2x6mm FHCS will not sit flush. This causes the motor to not lay flat when mounted and deflects the motor shaft/worm gear into the worm wheel causing binding and the Nema 11 does not spin freely.
