@sarahv bottom plate is a sheet metal part not a machined part. can we get an updated part number with the correct prefix? PP-FP instead of PP-MP
Also window cover top is not a machined part, it is a formed plastic part so i don't know if it needs a different prefix than PP-MP, and can we update the name for "endstop bump" to "xy endstop bump"

tutley added a comment to T10278: Update Pro change Filmaent option to include purge.

the real root of this problem is the injection molded filament guide piece in the aero (which makes printing flexibles possible with this design). Due to the taper of the injection molded part (necessary for injection molding) the inlet of the guide is a smaller ID than the ID of the heat break and nozzle. when the filament cools in the heat break/nozzle it matches that diameter. now when you go to remove the filament, it is too large to pull through the injection molded filament guide, so a reheat and ram purge is necessary in order to remove the filament through the smaller ID of the filament guide without jamming

tutley added a comment to T9887: Whambam build plate.

based on my testing, both the 2mm and 3mm thick magnets combined with the 0.5mm thick flex plates that were sampled performed really well.
The PEX surface did seem to get damaged from the nozzle coming into contact with the film when i had a bad probe. The PEI seems to be more resilient to this, so we may want to put PEI on their flex plate for production. I am supposed to be receiving a PEX Plus sample at some point.
i can get a drawing together for an Akita whambam system with custom laser engraving on the plate if i can get an svg of the desired artwork

tutley added a comment to T10224: Silk screen note is silver not blue.

i think the change to the drawing for the bed plate was just to make the powder coat white, and the silk screened warnings were overlooked as needing to be blue to match. i imagine the silver will be hard to see against the white powder coat

tutley added a comment to T10172: E1 doesn't travel down far enough .

@logan i think we should switch to m3x10 fhcs instead of the 3x12fhcs that is being used. the prototypes were all built with shorter screws on the bottom ( i cut m3x12fhcs shorter with the dremel). I thought we were using shorter ones on the bottom in production, but i just checked the ohai and its 4x m3x12 for the bottom and top plates mounted to the back plate. . The countersink is important as it helps get the bottom plate aligned properly and keeps the rods parallel to the z axis.

Tue, Sep 24, 1:07 PM · kangaroo-paw
tutley added a comment to T10170: Add "dimensions to be met prior to plating" to PP-MP0281.

@adam thats likely because they were nailing the dimensions post anodization and installing the bushing as well. It is fairly easy to damage the bushings when press fitting them into the part and cause excessive drag. the bushing material is soft and under the force of the arbor press can deform and reduce the ID of the bushings
