First there was an smoky explosion as hot excess anti-seize paste hit the cold acrylic platform, and then it just worked, fast, and near perfect.


So does that mean the head you made is now available to try on the CyberOptics machine?
It's both the extruder head and plastic feed as well right?

Yes, everything except the controller board. But I believe I have the components needed and could breadboard one.

So the first couple prints went fine. Now the heating element goes up to around 200 and stalls. The first thing I'd like to try is a beefier power supply. It seems that the stock 400W isn't cutting it. Does anyone have a spare 500W+ ATX supply they can bring on Wednesday?
