Re: Phoenix / Raptor / Something else?

Phoenix V2 to me would have been better than the unlimited as there are good written instructions for the v2 and lots of well made how to videos. Good luck, there are many people who what to fabricate and assemble but a real shortage of people to fit and run the show. I never did do anything with En...

Re: New to 3D printing

Phoenix V2 has a good choice as it is well documented with full written instructions and lots of detailed videos.
Good luck!

Re: Settings for PETG Filament for printing Phoenix V2

Only can comment on Esun PETG on a Maker Gear M2 using S3D v 4.01 Temp 245, bed 80, alter Filament diameter setting to match actual diameter if not 1.75. Print speed between 30 and 40mmS Starting height must be set exactly, .02 too high won't stick, too low will string more and gather on nozzle. XY ...

Re: Printers and Printing Materials

Barry, I think it depends on the part.. there is an Art part to 3D printing.. how you set the object up, where the support goes, support resolution, custom support, adding and remove from the default. Depending on the size and shape of the part, size of the nozzle and type of filament, the number of...

Re: Hand or Arm for 5-year-old child

You should probably join the enable google+ group there is much more activity and help over there. I am working with my first recipient (coworkers daughter) but I am remote from them She only has a short residual forearm so it was suggested I use the Kwawu socket version. There is another version fo...

Re: Kwawu arm SCAD file threads wrong direction

was it a left or right hand.. have not done so but waiting for measurements and plan on trying this arm. Did you do one part as right hand and the other as left.. would think both sets of thread would be right handed.. but maybe not?

Re: Arm for a young child

Did you get any help with this.. I find myself in a similar situation and not sure where to go.. No one seems to monitor this site and Google groups is not really easy to find historic data.

Re: All arms... PLEASE HELP I NEED HELP... EMERGENCY

Built the Unlimbited and Phoenix V2. Takes time to print, 3d printing is not plug and play. Didn't time the assembly.. stringing the fingers takes the most time.. If you have never 3d printed you should probably start with that as it is a time consuming learning curve. Someone just posted an instruc...

Re: Problems printing the Phoenix hand

See of you can post the file with the fingers. I had not issue with the 130% version I printed last month but I was using a different printer and slicer.
If you can post your file I will try and print it for you to see if it is the file or something else. .. What filament are you using?

Re: Need Help with Printing Problem

I can't say for sure what is causing that. I can tell you 3d printing is not plug and play there is a rather steep learning curve as you are learning your printer, (thing that can mechanically be incorrectly adjusted) slicer software, filament type and quality all combine to make figuring out issues...

Re: Have you used PET filament? Does it work?

not sure anyone still reads this but yes, I used PETG for some of the parts of the and and the pins. Worked well but was a problem for the thumb adjuster pin. This was on the v2 hand. When messing with the hand (was an approval hand) I tired to pick up something very heavy and the fishing line CUT t...

I Chris, I am new to E-Nable and fairly new to 3d printing after buying my first printer in Feb. I can tell you this is not plug and play, there is a steep learning curve with the slicing software and the way it affects your prints. I too had considered a duel extruder but decided it would probably ...
