      Hi elmoret! I see that you are an administrator and I found a post you made in 2014 on maximum extrusion rate. I have a 3DP1000 weith standard E3Dv6 & volcano extruder. I can't find the maximum extrusion rate on the hot end and am trying to increase mine. Who would I ask or do you know where this information would be?

      Thanks,
      Tom

        Hi Tom,

        There is no maximum extrusion rate listed for the hotend, because it is a function of many things - nozzle size, extrusion temperature, the material being extruded (there are many types of ABS and PLA for example, each with varying flow properties).

        E3D's testing showed 1.75mm filament had a little higher extrusion rate than 3.0mm, and increasing temperature will always result in faster flow rates - but eventually there is a limit on how fast the polymer can be melted. The only way to improve that is to lengthen the heaterblock (which is why Volcano prints faster than v6).

      The Duet board, I see it's on your site. I see that it can take 12 or 24 volts, so it should be able to power the heat bed, hotends ect with 24 volts right?

      Can you connect up with it using Repetier host and all the usual 3d printing programs? Octoprint?

        There is currently no support for the standard character LCD, but there is support for a touchscreen via the PanelDue (also on the Filastruder site). If you want to pester the firmware creator to add normal LCD functionality, he's dc42 over on the RepRap forums.

        Humm I think I will have to take some time to contemplate it.

        Just bought two Titains from you and a bunch of spare parts :)

        It will probably come as I would like to reuse the Rumba for something else but not prepared to drop another 250 on the BigBox yet, thanks for the info though. I am adding this to my list of upgrades.

        I would do the same if I were in your shoes (hold off until I had another use for the existing hardware). You should be able to get around the limitation by printing slower on high detail models.
