Microswiss Direct Drive and All-Metal Hotend
#1
Hey guys,

Just a quick heads up on what's to come from my reviews:

1. I just received the Ender 5 Pro from Banggood. I should have the review of this guy out in the next week and I'm looking forward to another CoreXY printer.

2. This week I asked MicroSwiss for a review sample and they obliged!! I did have to pay shipping but I love working with new companies!
I'm getting this guy https://store.micro-swiss.com/products/m...e-extruder  So my quesion is: what do you want to learn about it and what do you want me to print with it?

Being an all-metal hotend it opens up the filament choices a bit... I'm thinking Nylon is a must, especially since i've had a roll sitting around for 2 years that's unopened... but what else do you want to see?

Cheers guys!
Dave

a buddy flew these inexpensive tanky realacc frames, he had a polycarbonate canopy for it. i guess it wasnt printed, i beleive it was very durable.
i would like to know how polycarbonate canopys are in comparison to nylon or tpu :-)

I believe polycarbonate is one of the most popular materials for making durable props as well.

yes, i believe all usable props about durability.
i never used carbon props, they might be nice about the weight but the stiffness seems a problem for durability.

printed pc props?

there are many examples of printed frames, but i beleive mostly pla, rare petg. i dont know an abs example, an example with pc would be nice :-)

I run carbon props on my bigger filming stuff, on any small impact they snap off at the hub...

RCLifeON on youtube did printed props..

Hi Bat,  No I havent tried PCTPE.

I am still working with it at the moment, I've printed a few benchies out of nylon, then I tried a pulley for a mower drive I need to do for a client and it printed great for 45hrs until my fan duct melted off and crashed into the print... OOPS hahaha

The hotend and extruder setup is brilliant though. Just WORKS!

45hrs Undecided even not finished, wow

i read pctpe is used for ducts and they told its "the best" about rigidity, i would like to know other opinions befor i tease my print buddy :-)
