I am curious if there are many other owners of this great printer out there, and if we could share some tips & tricks. I’ll start:
Printer: Modix Big 60 with dual print heads, enclosure, air filter. Swapped our the normal volcano block for a PT100, plated copper block and titanium heat-break on one of the heads. Using NozzleX 0.4mm heads.
I’m super happy with the printer and the PEI bed is absolutely fantastic. No bed adhesion issues at all. The enclosure and filter helps keep things from warping and I can’t smell a thing.
- Print out some brackets to hold your top lid when open. Makes it easier on the hinges and also easier to reach to close again.
- Getting the Volcano heat block in and out on the Aero is super hard without damaging the heater element cables. I have had to replace it fairly quickly. I see there is a 90 degree cable exit version now available but have not tried it yet.
- I made an enclosed print-box and attached that to the side of the frame so I can do long prints from dry filament. Works really well and I’m down to a refined design that fits 2x 1kg spools.
- I still have lots of friction in my feed path (it is just so long due to the large print space), so am wondering if anyone have managed to reduce feed friction?
