Drybox and Robox Pro
Does anybody use the drybox ? With the pro...
I bought one and it seems a good product, at least for keeping dry the spools.
But, I 'm wondering several things :
# how to plug the tubes between the drybox and the robox :
I imagine I have to :
- remove the part at the entry of the extruder (I will post a picture asap)
- remove this part form the tube arriving from the bottom of the pro
- place this part on a new ptfe tube
- put in place this tube between the exit of the drybox and the extruder of the pro
Is it right ? This part seems printed. Does anybody has the cad file of the part keeping the tube in place ?
# how to have spools in the drybox and keep spool information in AM :
Does anybody would have an idea ? I can of course force AM to declare a spool, but how to update the material quantity on the spool chipset ?
If you have any feedback about the drybox, some question or whatever, please feel free to share.
Thank you in advance.
@olivier-masson There are instructions included with the DryBox. You will need to push out the black or gray printed adapter from the printer extruder. The feed tubes from the DryBox just go up to the entrance of the extruder. They do not physically attach to the extruder. This is so that you can remove the tubes when you need to eject the filament.
If you are not mounting the SmartReel directly to the printer, you cannot use the EEPROM on the SmartReel. The material quantity remaining is only for your reference and is not used by the printer. The printer will physically detect when it is out of filament and does not rely on that value.
The last DryBox I saw didn't have the threads on the ends of the feed tubes from the DryBox. Unless this has changed, the part won't work since the tubes need to be threaded.
I would also personally print that with the large flat side down - printing it on end exposes the part to stress across the print layers and increases the chance of a failure.
