Re: Hello from Spain!

Hello and welcome!!! I'm half Spanish here :P My dad is from Guernica.
The 24v bed upgrade is one of the best mods you can give to your Rostock Max.

Have fun and happy printing.

Re: Calibration problems for a big print, Please Help!!!

Another option is to change the "Z max length" though EEPROM.
In order to lower the nozzle, you increase this value (with a bigger z length the printer thinks it has more room to move down).
To raise the nozzle, you decrease it.

Re: H2 Build.. First layer uneven

Now it hits me... It's just a leveling issue. The nozzle is too far when printing close to the Z axis.
Does the H2 has a screw that you can screw/unscrew in order to level that particular axis?

Hi, I can't contribute with the autocal apsect as I don't have the accelerometer board. But it could be tower lean.
Check the towers with a digital inclinometer or a good machinists square.

Hi, don't sell it, the learning curve is priceless. Yes, you are having some headaches and you will have more. But you built it!, and eventually you will diagnose it better than anyone else here. If you sell it just to get a plug n play printer, be sure that problems will come with that one too, but...

Re: Hotend won't stay above 240 and goes to DEF

Hi, it could also be a wiring issue or a psu gone rogue.

Grab a multimeter and check the voltage.
Measure hotend and bed before and after you start the print.


Best of luck

Re: PLA woes (stringing)

The minimum retract distance at 5mm means it'll have to print 5mm before it even attempts a retract, you can try making this distance much smaller 1mm or even less. I belive is determined by the distance from "point A" to "point B" and not by how much it has been printed. But ye...

Re: PLA woes (stringing)

Why 100mm/s? I would be one of those to recommend to go slow. It's much safer and it practically doesn't affect printing time. It looks like it's a small print, with small islands very close to each other. If your minimum retract distance is set to 5mm, then I bet retracts are not beign triggered at...

Great Don! Hope the new PSU solves it. Keep us posted. PS: I don't know much about electronics, but I do know if you open a power supply you shouldn't touch those capacitors. They could kill you.

What printer did you choose in the firmware?
and this might be silly but Rambo accepts two Z motors, make sure yours is connected to E0 and not Z or E1.

Yes, you are right, the 3rd one shouldn't stick. I gave that tip because I thought it could be a gravity issue. When your hotend is at printing temperature and you leave it like this for a long time, if you hit print, it will take a few seconds for the filament to start coming out. But now I think t...
