    Not sure who you're directing the question to, but I print in PLA for most of my prints, using ABS for Black so it doesn't melt in the sun. I build the case with wall = 2.40, and use a 0.6mm nozzle with 0.63mm perimeters (4 total from wall to wall to make it solid).
    I'm that HeaterMeter guy what ruins everybody's free time.

    I am starting to print more and more PET cases. So easy to print after you have it set up correctly. I'm actually using a .2 nozzle ATM. But mostly print with a .3 nozzle.

    Everything turned out really nice. Thanks again, John.

    To ensure extra smooth operation of the damper, I used some 200 grit sandpaper and sanded down the the bottom of the body and the top of the damper/valve so that those 2 mating surfaces were guaranteed not to bind during operation.

    I also replaced the fan wires with some silicone jacket wire I had. The insulator on the stock fan wires had become quite brittle.

    Looks good. If I had to do over I would have used support material where the fan goes into the part. But, it was still functional as is and the top was flat.

    Not bad for being the first print after my 3d printer sat in the garage all winter.

    Hope all is well with everyone.

    I'm looking into a heatermeter, case, and damper set up.

    Keep going back and forth between building my own set up and buying one assembled. Figured I should at least see if anyone has a unit for sale.
    So...PM me if you have any.

    Cheers and Thx,
    Jer

    All,

    I am looking to purchase a damper set up. I'm open to which one, but I have the HM 4.3 with the standard fan (or will, when it gets here, I ordered it) This will be paired with my RPi 3B. I have a 18" WSM so any helpful tips/hardware purchases to attach it to the smoker are also welcome. Sorry for the noob post/questions, I'm still reading and using the search function. I live on the central coast of California.

    Chris

    This is one option. http://www.backyardkitchengourmet.co...uct/fandamper/

    There was a webstore for microdamper too. Was closeds. Check microdamper thread.

    If you read all posts in threads for each of the 3 main ones, a few people may show up that will help with each.

    In my opinion, all are fairly priced. Nobody getting rich

    I recall seeing some others....ebay etc before

    Or just get it printed and put together.

    I designed the original roto damper and the RD3, I can print the parts for you much cheaper than the price of the pirated version linked above, its not a for profit venture for me... The RD3 fits the standard HM blower. Email me at rotodamper AT Hot Mail DOT COM if you are interested in getting a set of parts.

    I created the Roto Damper, RD3, HMv4.2 sliding back case, "air-burner" and the "ping-pong" valve in my quest for delicious "set and forget" BBQ.
