  • Reman: I did double check it with a metre (Mainly because I knew if I didn't check the polarity this would be the time the manufacturer had gone off script and put the negative in the middle of the coax) and felt slightly cheated because it was only making 19.7 volts. :)

  • Bajadre: yeah heat and wring never a good thing only a matter of time :(
    January 04, 2019, 10:12:57
  • Bad Raven: Well, it should! Rated for 24v. Be careful, have you checked the PSU output?  Many psu that (say) are supposed to be 12v actually output 16-18v. Is your 20v actually less than 24v??
    January 04, 2019, 08:41:14
  • Reman: Just modified the cable on a 20V 7A PSU to connect to my TS100........ It.... Erm..... Heats up a bit quicker than it did on 12V. LOL !!!

  • Reman: I didn't try to taste it, but it gave off that kind of smell that gets you in the back of the throat. :)

Re: WHICH? 3D Printer - Malyan M200
« Reply #155 on: June 07, 2018, 09:44:40 »
Does anyone have experience with the Malyan M200
I'm after a small, simple 3D printer
It wont be used for more than small Quad parts - ie I cant see anything bigger than 2-3 inches being printed at this stage.

build it your self theirs some great guides out there you learn so much and the first time it breaks down you know how to fix it and if your lucky you can sell for a prophet
i've built two now if you like tinkering then its good and easy 

id recommend something like this remember to have lift lid and door its cheap it easy to store as its a box and it keeps all the mess enclosed and if the roof and door will make great for stopping drafts killing your prints as that can be a big issue later on down the road honestly if your going to do it build it

http://diy3dprinting.blogspot.com/2015/02/smartcore-low-cost-wooden-box-3d-printer.html

its basicly a ramps board running everything theres lots of information on ramps there old and noisy but still do the job great place to start inexpensive 18 dollars for the hole brain run it with a raspberry pie using octo print for web contorl of your printer from anywhere on your network again octo print can be added in at a later date
