    Tried again with the cap on as tight as humanly possible. No dice

      I believe so as it's still powering up the chip

      the loose wire were a change out for the tact switches. my wire was too thick and it made the bottom cap not seat how it is supposed to. I really didn't do anything to the top cap from before besides taking out the 510 a few times to investigate. all the solder points look good.

      i should just drop it off to you in philly and write you a check GDeal lol

        If the chip is firing up when you have the top and bottom sections together and you have continuity for the all the mini connectors, then its either your solders to the fire button tact switch or your atty isnt seated. (But you would get a "check atty" message). Does the board work if you just press the on-board tact switch?

        before i gutted the tact switches it was working fine. it just wasn't sitting flush on the counter. i switched out the wires for those real thin guys because i thought that would fix the problem. i tried a few different atomizers and it didn't seem to help the issue.

        when i inspected the tact switch in the top cap everything seemed fine. must be losing continuity somewhere. could also be the 510 assembly

          What a day! Not only did my V4.2 come in from printing, the DNA40's from the Co-Op also arrived! So after a quick dry fit I'll now need to figure out what color this is going to be (thinking of just clear coating it).

          Polished white from Sculpteo. Only minor issue is the small ridge on one side that I'm sure would be sanded off. The plastic is much stiffer than print jobs I've gotten from Shapeways.

            That sucks! But since it's white, it should "buff right out".

            BTW, you really should keep up with CoOp threads for CoOps you've participated in. If you don't, you might miss out on something. ;)

              I have this same ridge on both of the bodies that I ordered, and yes it does sand off. Just have to be patient.

                Is this going to be a problem with the colored prints? I just ordered a non polished black print this morning....

                All of the black 3d prints I have received appear to be white with a top black layer so yes it could be a problem if the ridge isn't pure black material.

                This is the last 3d print that was black before sanding smooth.

                  Awesome.[emoji29]

                  Well I guess we'll find out, it's due in april 7th. I'm going to run the gambit and see what happens. I guess worst case scenario it'll get a nice new paint job and I'll be out $30.

                  I'll keep you guys posted

                    Not with with this top cap. The 22mm would go all the way to the edge. The 18mm fits the hole, but it would sit on top... (v3 wood). Same for the 22mm. Just use a 1mm o-ring with the FD classic or use a 8mm x 1.5mm around the atty 510 threads and you should be able to get it pretty flush.

                    I've found that I prefer the smaller atty's on these types of mods, myself. I use a Cyclone on my 3.1 and it's really great. I also have a Hornet, but the Cyclone's got it beat. As Gdeal said, the 22mm goes TO the Edge, it looks kinda wonky (but I suppose it would work?)
