0 What do I change if my extruder temp keeps fluctuating? 2011-12-12 12:15:59
We can try to modify the PID value or there is the problem with the temperature sensor.
1 What is best accuracy, and other than environmental variables, is accuracy based primarily on filament type? 2011-12-12 12:15:59
Speed, filament, stable footing, bed leveling, temperatures, belt tension....there is too many variables that affect accuracy.
2 Is it able to accept filament from other companies? 2011-12-12 12:15:59
Yes, you can buy from other companies. But remember to buy the filament in good quality to avoid any clogging problem and you do have to change the settings on the software you download to get better perfect prints.

The print speed ranges 20mm/s to 100mm/s, we can set the one according to the filament type and the print results we want. Normally we set 40mm/s to get good print results.
10 How can I clean the printing platform? How often should I change a new one? 2011-12-12 12:15:59
You can gently scrape off the residue in the printing platform with a knife. You can change the new one when it is broken.

19 I need to know if this will work with models designed in mastercam? 2011-12-12 12:15:59
Not directly but your mastercam files can be converted to .STL (Stereolithography) files. Then it needs to be processed through a slicer softwar, which would convert the .STL file into something that the 3D printer can read which are .GCODE files. You can get slicing software like CURA for free online.
