Current Status

Date Notes
24 April 2014 Cupcake extruder needs a new thermal barrier and some testing to stop clogging. Suggest a different extruder compatible with the machine such as a paste extruder or a pen plotter.
22 April 2014 Partially rebuilt hotend with new thermistor, removed ceramic tape, and tested again.
11 April 2014 Thermal barrier is clogged. Insulator retainer ring broke due to clog. Printed a replacement on the Thing-O-Matic.
8 April 2014 First successful test extrusion
3 April 2014 Unclogged insulator and printed a new insulator retainer ring
20 February 2014 No trouble uploading firmware so the former documentation of this as an issue has been removed.
16 February 2014 Thermal insulator is badly clogged. Will need to be unclogged or replaced.
