the platform was redesigned actually, although i dont think many people have it. I know at least a few mentioned it and it was kind of a big deal at the time.
I inquired to snapmaker about getting one and they kind of dodged me on it, so i suspect its only a bandaid and not a massive improvement. Although they dodged me on my request to get the upgraded 3dp module on order until i pressed it too, and that is a pretty good upgrade vs the original. i do not currently have any addon fan anymore, although i am thinking it may benefit from it.
As for the heater, brent has a heater mod someplace, he used a third party and made a gadget to control it thru the controller. requires 110vac and i think it just uses the controller’s connector to activate a relay to power it, and accomodate the thermostatic sensor.
i would like to look into that, but im kinda wondering if i am going to want to bother anymore.
as i understand you have found an IR sensor for the calibration routine, same story. if i can get anywhere on this shifting thats the first thing im going to look at. i like using the fifix, and works pretty well, but its kind of a hassle.
i am hoping the controller isnt super expensive or particularly hard to get, but at this point im willing to get one if it has been decided to be a source of problems in cases beyond people plugging in things backwards…
its going to be especially difficult to determine if my machine is better because i have found no rhyme or reason to when the machine is going to decide it doesnt like printing a particular part.
i kinda tuned out of here for a hot minute so i am not sure whats on the up and up these days…
with this air cleaner, is it expected to not need to exhaust outdoors? would it be that effective? i have to do some home improvement to add some power to a new spot and set my machine up and etc so i could even run a duct, so i have yet to even try laser or cnc.
