GearBest JGAURORA A5 – Watch it Print PETGand Check Out The Results!

In this episode, we will be printing PET-G with the GearBest JGAURORA A5 printer! Also I have to say this thing is still amazing for an out of the box printer and what it can do. Also the bed heated up to 100c in no time at all was printing! Now I didn’t go crazy on retraction being the first PET-G print and wanted to avoid a nozzle clog but all in all the print came out great!

GearBest JGAURORA A5 – Bonus Printing a Voronoi Object!

In this episode, we will be seeing if the GearBest JGAURORA A5 can print a Voronoi style object (yes in the video I said Voronoi diagram as that is what I am use to :-). So I went off to Thingiverse and decided since we did a pawn already we would go scale and print a king as I wanted to test print the flatter top and cross. In addition I used glow in the dark PLA ( amzn.to/2rlHVDv ) for the print at 210c at 50mm/sec with 70c bed temp. Now I didn’t optimize for retraction or heat (I have glow in the dark prints a little hotter). However my goal was to see what results “Joe Average” expect when just taking this printer out of the box and I must adimit I was happy with the results so check and see what you think!

GearBest JGAURORA A5 – ReMixed Bed Mounted Camera Holder!

In this episode, we will be installing a bed mounted camera arm on the GearBest JGAURORA A5 bed. As I found the original design on Thingiverse however the arm was too short for my needs as well as centered, so what is a 3D maker to do? That’s right! ReMix and I did into several different versions so if you have a GearBest JGAURORA A5, this is a great mounting bracket for you! Also I will recommend the ThiEYE 4K for timelapses amzn.to/2CTr3oX for sub 100 bucks USD this is a great camera that’s light and pack with features!

This design also takes some M3 nuts & bolts (either 10 or 12mm M3’s will work see: amzn.to/2FsQj75 ).

You can also use a ball head like this amzn.to/2DkrDNv as well as a you can use a cell phone mount such as this amzn.to/2DnwL3E or even this amzn.to/2CT6uZX to hold your phone to the top of the camera base as you see me do in the video and here is lens set (amzn.to/2CTUh7i ) I use in the video with my iPhone 4s (they will work with bascily version smart phone).

Note: while many of the other show connection at 115200 baud, I had to connect at 250000 instead so if you run into connection issues try uping the baud rate.

Also for the advance users out there, there is a bootloader port and you can flash the MKS board using a USBTiny.

A big thanks to Samuel Pinches for assembling the Marlin code bundle for the AJ Aurora A5 and and you can see his video and more info here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZE0siGAvZNI&t=570s

Shop Talk – Stop Leveling Your Bed and Start Tramming Your Machine!

In this episode, we will be looking at the misconception of bed leveling and the fact we are really tramming our machine (3D Printer). What is tramming you ask, well the “tram” is the squareness of of your machine too to your bed surface in the X & Y and the act of “Tramming” is achieving this squareness between these two planes.

In addition there is also a misconception that the bed is a single plane when in fact it is irregular (it has dips and humps) so is divisible into many sub-planes in order normalize the error (i.e. deviations) across the entire bed and we will talk about these and more so grab a quick coffee and lets get tramming!

GearBest JGAURORA A5 – Shootout with the Creality CR 10!

So you asked for it and here it is folk! The shoot between the Creality CR-10 (goo.gl/wDNeeH) whom many consider the reigning king of 3P printers and the up and coming GearBest JG AURORA A5 Updated (goo.gl/efnSH4) printer! Now there have been a lot of change “haters” out there saying “how dare you say this is a Creality Killer!” (insert arrogant huff here). So this is going to be bit of a LONG video as I am going to walk feature by feature between the Creality and GearBest JG AURORA A5 so you will want to have a beverage handy! Also below is a ton of additional information on this printer and the shoot-out as well as more of my opinions based upon experience so be sure to read down all the way.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Creality CR-10 used in this comparison is HIGHLY modified and tuned! The GearBest JG AURORA A5 is straight from the box ZERO tuning! This is important to keep in mind because if you are “Joe Average” and buy a Creality and take it out of the box, it will NOT perform as well as the one in the comparison.

Settings for Test Prints:
————————————————————————————————-
Layer thickness: 0.1
Speed: 50mm/sec
Retraction: 6mm at 50mm/sec
Travel Speed: 150mm/sec

Hotend Temp: Creality 210(c) / JGAURORA A5 200(c)
Pawn URL: www.thingiverse.com/thing:997832
Filament Creality: Hatchbox Red
Filiament JGAURORA A5: White (what was in the box)

General Parameters for GearBest JG AURORA A5 3D Printer:
————————————————————————————————-
Nozzle diameter: 0.4mm
Nozzle temperature: Room temperature to 250 degree
Product forming size: 305 x 305 x 320mm
Layer thickness: 0.1-0.3mm
Memory card offline print: USB Thumb Drive
LCD Screen: Touch Sensitive Color
Print speed: 10 – 150mm/s
Platform temperature: Room temperature to 110 degree
Material diameter: 1.75mm
————————————————————————————————-

Notes:
————————————————————————————————-
[1] IMHO the lack of the 80mm is not an issue as while it is “possible” to print those extra 80mm, the issue will arise from the fact the Creality has moving bed (unlike say the Tronxy x5s) and thus as print climbs. The center of gravity will shift and induce some level of error. Now this error in many cases can be of acceptable tolerances but this is seconded by occurrence of “need” to print object that tall and trading the 80mm for other feature such as a second Z-Axis motor.

[2] In the videos you will notice what appears to additional hot-end movement for the GearBest JG AURORA A5 3D. I believe (note “believe” and have not confirmed) is due to the firmware’s handling of arc’s and also feels this is what caused the GearBest JG AURORA A5 3D to run a bit longer as this increased “distance” the hot-end had to travel. Now for the “Average Joe” this will not be an issue as to see this you need a microscope. However for the power user, I would recommend reflashing.

[3] Since making this video I have reflashed with Marlin and reduced the stepper motor noise to less then the CR-10 without changing the driver current but not sure I am happy with it. Watch for an up-coming video

[4] Something I forgot to note in my review is that the “contained” movements (i.e. belts and lead screws) give this a major one-up for schools and office setting (homes with younger children too) to avoid injury. Even the hot-end is better shielded with the plate which goes across the front of the X-Axis.
