After a few issues with the extruder's gears and axes, we are back in busines.
We mounted the extruder to the printer along with a heated tank and pipe.
The nozle is too far from the bed and the amount extruded wax per mm is wrong but you can see we where trying to print a calibration rule :)
Notice the odd angle of the rule. The printer is polar and the extruder's tip was not properly aligned with the bed's center.
Will fix that today.
TODO next week:
- Fix extruder's leaks!!!!!!!! #@#@!#$^%%$^&43$#fg542y%#
- Z should be lower....
- Reduce steps per mm on the extruder, way too much wax is being extruded now.
- Move the thermistor near the tip (now near the pump's gears) to have a better temperature control. Wax is coming out way too hot.
