    Continuing quest to make GARCAD the best-

    6/01/2018  A new bowden tube with 3mm ID reduces drag on the carriage (it is thinner walled = more flexible). The smaller ID leaves much less wiggle room for storing compression than in a larger tube-  this reduces oozing and make retraction much more meaningful.

    6/01/2018   A new vacuum/air device is ready.  the vacuum is for removing the smoke of lasering while the air serves the jet.ring.
    The vacuum nozzle and mount for the laser is on the way.

    6/01/2018   New hotends have a thick layer of fiberglass instead of the porcelain shell. A thick glaze over that produces a hard insulating foam.  

    6/04/2018   A clip.on electronic noise filter protects the thermocouple data lines from interference.

    6/14/2018   An intercooler now provides additional cooling for long runs of high temperature printing.  It also provides strain relief for the hoses.

    6/20/2018    A 'spice rack' upgrade will hang on the side of the GARCAD enclosure to hold the spoolie box and the water cooler.
                       This will reduce the bowden tube length by about a foot and eliminate the separate hanging shelf for the water cooler.
                       It will also be possible to hang one on the other side for dual filament systems.

    7/26/2018    Heated platform gets insulated.  

    A filament switcher that will allow you to change filament via G-code is in the CAD phase...

    A roll feeder for lasering rolled material?

    The search for a source of black PEEK continues.
