Upgrade to MK8

by 3Dnoobian

Hello everyone, today I hade misfortune to find out the bad quality of the bowden connector on my V2, I've printed a college, but in the mean time I was looking to this solution: https://hackaday.io/project/28433-monoprice-select-mini-painless-extruder-upgrade
There the author (if I can call him/her as that) of the upgrade, him/her mentions a MR104ZZ bearing, and looking on youtube a video it shows that the person of the video uses the same bearing that comes with the ABS handle of the extruder. My question here, if any of you have done this upgrade before, is, Can I use the existing bearing, or should definitely need to purchase the MR104ZZ bearing. Thanks! Happy printings!!

Under extrusion problem

by paulistoan

Hello there,

I have a problem with some 3D prints lately. I've been trying to print this Christmas tree https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:723392

I always have problems with the top/right part being under extruded and also the top circles inside the tree have problems, sometimes they don't print at all. Not sure what the problem is or what I can do to fix it. I use Cura to slice the file and I've been trying different temperatures from 190 to 215, also different layer height (0.1, 0.2), nothing works.

Bottom and left part of the print looks fine. I've attached some images so you can see what the print looks like.

I made a Dunder Mifflin paper box business card holder... Please let me know what you guys think of it. I printed this on the MPSM and it took about 10 hours total. I think it looks great and would love some constructive feed back!!
