    Mike's gMax XT1.5+ Scratch Build and Questions

    Another great place to shop for parts is http://www.mcmaster.com/# . They offer great prices on all the screws, bolts, and odds and ends needed for the printer. Gathering the parts was a long process. I made up a spreadsheet at first and would go through the build manual and count how many of...

    I am getting into building the printer now as all my extrusions are cut to size, tapped, etc. What count teeth GT-2 Pulleys are used for the front and back of the X Axis and left and right side of the Y Axis? The build manual doesn't give any specific part information on this.

    Looking for 1.0 manual, firmware, config, etc.

    Not the biggest expert on 3D printing but if you want a great, free open source software, give MatterControl a try. I have been using it for several months with great satisfaction. Very easy to set up and use and I get consistent results. MatterControl has the printer profile for the gMax now so...

    I just received two big part orders from gCreate for my gMax 1.5 XT+ build this week and I have to say, you can tell the gMax 1.5+ was carefully thought out and well executed even down to the smallest details. I just got the gMax Aluminum Bed with Heated Build tac Surface and those components...

    I have successfully printed out all the parts for my gMax 1.5 XT+ build. I have a couple of LCD controllers on hand but none seem to fit the printed LCD Case/Mount. Which specific LCD controller do I need to get to fit ? Any links to the correct controller would be most appreciated. I went...

    For anybody at gCreate in the know, when will these parts available for sale in the online store? I am needing the leg set and Nema 17 motor mounts for my gMax build. Any idea if or when they will be available?

    Getting into my gMax 1.5 XT+ build and have a quick question. I have included an illustration to clarify what I am asking. At the top of each 8mm Lead Screw, there is a white cap. Would this happen to be a Flanged Nylon Sleeve Bearing? I am assuming they are but wanted to be sure before ordering...

    About to order some filament to begin printing the GMax parts. Just an opinion question. What would be the preferred filament type for a job like this PLA or ABS?
