OK assembly, inaccurate color codes

The assembly is decent but has some unusual features like using filament to hold parts in (despite said PCBs having mounting holes for screws). Color codes have been hit or miss, with some colors being veeery off.

Great product and service!

The "Complete Kit" (assembled) TD-1 looks and works great! I've tested with a couple of filaments so far and the readings seem to be very accurate. The precision is really good, when I keep testing the same filament my TD may fluctuate by +- 0.3 and the Color value may fluctuate by a few hexadecimal places (this was testing the same area of filament since there will be a variance of thickness and color in any spool).

The TD-1 can work as a standalone device if you need to know exact color and TD for your projects/products or in tandem with the new HueForge v0.7.1-beta-1 software (the beta version is only available to HF commercial license users at the moment of my review). With HueForge, once it detects a reading, it'll give you a pop-up to enter the filament type, brand, and name. Then you simply save it to your owned filaments. So easy!

I did have some difficulties feeding my filament through at first. It was because I used some filament that had slight extruder teeth marks instead of testing a fresh smooth piece. With that said, filaments that run a little thick will be difficult to feed, because the TD accuracy probably depends on the exact distance between the light and sensor. Just a heads up.

Lastly, West3D did a great job packing and shipping the unit and I hope to buy more awesome products from them soon!

Stealthburner upgrades

TLDR better than GDS time PCF needs a bit of shaving for stealthburner feels BEEFY

so several things I used to have issues with bridging and a fair bit of stringing ran a few temp towers playing with ambrosia asa (let me tell yall that stuff is great) and bridges came out beautifully at about 270-285C on a rapido 2 now be warned you'll have to shave off a bit of material from the sides a clip and some duct to get the guy to fit well and still is VERY snug you don't have to shave the entire housing it's mostly duct and clips I personally used a soldering iron blade (Please make sure you have an open window) and was able to fit it in about 5 minutes with some smoothing and some test fits the brass nut is mildly off center on the stealthburner which *almost* makes me want to throw on a Konami BUT well worth 12 bucks

Love the product! Also West3d really packaged the item well!

Seems like good quality

Seems like good quality, haven’t installed it yet but it got here quickly.

This is a fun little addition to the V0 that adds tons of light. West3D was quick on shipping it out.

Should be 5 BUT

The literal only reason this product is not 5 stars is because it doesnt give you much in the form of extra dupont connectors(which have the highest chance of breaking) in case you make a mistake, also theres no real explaination on how to use the pin pusher tool in the kit, took me a bit of messing with it to figure out how to use it but it does make getting those crimps in the connectors easier.
Also having all of a single wire color for your 24v connections seems like a bit of a copout. Id gladly pay extra just to have both red and black 24/20ga in a single kit instead, but if you wanna mod your voron this kit is definitely worth it, just pay VERY close attention to which wire is which in case you cant label it

West3d-Best3d

Great customer service, I made a few mistakes when sourcing my voron so Ive been ordering like mad from west 3d, and they have combined the packages and bumped up the shipping speed as a last minute request, Ill be sourcing most if not all my voron upgrades here from west 3d.

Dramatic improvement over stock

I purchased these the week they came out, they were a dramatic improvement over the standard nozzles.

That being said, the price difference between this and an Obxidian HF makes it a tough choice to go with a brass nozzle.

Solid filament

Prints similarly to plain ABS that I have worked with in the past. With a well calibrated VORON 2.4, printed without much fuss. Fumes are a bit more punchy than with some other ABS, not an issue if the enclosure stays closed a little bit longer w/ a nevermore carbon filter running. Prints are strong, and the layer lines are nicely concealed at a distance by the glitter effect. Would recommend.

I did have one strange, random break within the filament, which would have been a potential issue if I were not running with a filament sensor.

Great but not perfect

LOD rails aren't the best (ask for berserkers instead) and my particular kit had a few issues (Missing shims, bad Z motor, Failed Acrylic), they did a great job making it right.

In the end, LDO makes building this printer easy, it's 99% of what you need for a great V0 in one box.

Good kit however

The kit is well packaged and seems to be high quality however the only problem I have is the misc screws are not labeled and packaged together in one bag and you have to dig through the bag and figure out the sizes yourself. That's my only complaint.

Great Tool for Belts

Really easy to get a consistent belt tension without having to fumble with apps.

This stuff is great!

I have been using it for a 3dsets RC build and it has come out wonderful!

> LDO

These rails are so much better than my LDO rails it's not even funny. I used nothing but Zerkers for my V0!

Well Assembled Filters

I just started printing ASA, and without a carbon filter, the Voc inside the chamber was reaching 1500ppm based on my cheep voc meter. After adding a Nevermore filter, with the Nevermore Carbon+Scorch, the Voc doesn't really go above 150ppm. I tied this to a Voron Expander, and can control the fan along side the other printer fans.

Can't say enough good things about West3d in terms of the product, shipping, and their easy accessiblity on discord to discuss questions.

Keeps the VOCs Down

I just started printing ASA, and without a carbon filter, the Voc inside the chamber was reaching 1500ppm based on my cheep voc meter. After adding a Nevermore filter, with the Nevermore Carbon+Scorch, the Voc doesn't really go above 150ppm.

Like Having A Hard Copy

While I usually lean towards online documentation and reading books digitally, I'm finding having a hard copy of the build guide extremely helpful. I'm building the V.0 Ldo kit, and before I started I went thru and added post-it notes on all the pages where LDO has changes. Makes it a lot easier for me than flipping between different tabs on a browser.

The print quality is top notch, and the binding works great for flipping pages on the workbench.

Great filament

I love this ASA. Prints great and is great for the Voron accent parts. I highly recommend it.

Great gears

A Really great looking set I purchased for my stealthburner build. 5/5

Awesome Fans!

I didn't actually purchase this fan from West3d (I didn't even know they carried them). I was looking for a better 5015 fan and found this one elsewhere. Either way...

This is is AWESOME, Super high airflow, much better than the cheapo 5015 blowers. If you're looking for additional cooling.. This is the ticket.

I ordered the 470mm Rails. One Google conversion comes to 18.5 inches. They came in at 18in 457.2mm. So I sent an email about this. I got a reply they would check into this. It's been 5 working days since then. So far nothing. I worry about what is going to happen when I need to move my printer and there is no room for it to flex at all.

Best quality/performance fan

Run flawlessly
