Crap hack. Bulk filament

<< < (2/28) > >>

Must the dummy be almost empty filament ?
If it is not a almost empty one, does it works ?

No, the dummy can be full, almost empty - whatever - as long as its not completely empty. 


Hi burcinpak
Would you post your opinion and results using the makerbot filament?
I would love to know how the extruder handled it.
Thank you!

Hi Dan,
I really thank you for starting this forum. It is really hard to find online communities hatching out ideas and sharing information about 3d systems printers.  I am going to attempt the bulk filament option due to the high price of the cartridges.  So far i am satisfied with the cube2 3D's prints.  (I was excepting less from a consumer oriented 'high priced' entry level printer.)
My question is about the bulk PLA filament options.  Burcinpak posted using makerbot's PLA filament.  On other blogs i came across people using Octave filaments but the quality doesn't seem to be too good according to the reviews.  What are your findings using various bulk materials? What i would really try to avoid is a clogged print head.
Thank you.

Follow-up on bulk filaments.
Did some more research....  And it seems to reveal that the CUBE 3D uses 1.60mm - 1.70 proprietary filaments as supposed to the standard 1.65-1.75mm. Has anybody experienced the bulk filament being too thick for the extruder/print head?  MatterHacker filament seems to be the closest one in thickness according to some.
