Re: ZX Printer Belt

As long as you don't forget to change nozzle size and temp in your slicer and slow print speed down to 20-30 mms you should do OK. My Ninjaflex specifies 235c for the hot end. Bed temp is not critical, but I usually give my glass bed a squirt or two of cheap hair spray for good measure. Here is one ...

Re: ZX Printer Belt

Printing the belt using PLA filament yielded excellent results using the .4mm nozzle. It is quite flexible with the belt being so thin (.5mm), but will need some testing to verify durability. Tried again with TPU (more flexible) filament with disappointing results. The belt itself turned out nearly ...

Re: ZX Printer Belt

Last entry for the day. Here is the latest version with integrated stylus posts. Haven't printed yet, but feeling confident. May need to go to the .2mm nozzle.

Re: ZX Printer Belt

Hey Paul, no problem my friend.

If anyone is interested, here is the .STL file without any stylus mounting provision. That will need to be done by hand I'm betting.

Re: ZX Printer Belt

Update on the printer belt. Yesterday I received the printer belt fragments that Francois was so generous to loan me and immediately got out my scanning electron microscope and calipers. I had no idea how insanely tiny the features were, but after repeated measuring I feel good about the accuracy of...

Re: ZX80 3K Ram Pack memory

You guys are really finding some awesome stuff. As for the mod that Moggy has unearthed, something different will probably have to done in this situation. The board design I am using is the one Marcus Brenner re-drew based on the original board. Charlie found a couple of errors that, when corrected,...

Re: ZX80 3K Ram Pack memory

I appreciate the offer, Mark. If this something you can do that won't put you out, the results should be interesting.

From what Charlie says of his results with his copy of my memory pack, it sounds as though it's working.

I'd place a small wager that it's just not compatible with the TS1000.

Re: ZX80 3K Ram Pack memory

Mark, I ran your code on my 2k TS1000 with the ram pack attached and got the exact same result as you :( , so I am assuming that something in it needs to be changed to work on the TS. Like I've said, I'm dumber'n a box of rocks when it comes to this stuff.
