Re: Arms repalcement - best option ?

Thank you Geneb. I was expecting this reply somehow.

Well, I suppose my wife won't be happy...

Geneb, by the way, If I follow your advice, shall I also replace the platform, or could I keep my old one ?

Arms repalcement - best option ?

Hello, I own a modified V1. One of the modifications was for the CF arms from TrickLaser. I have the old gen, with rubber band and traxxas balls. One of my Traxxas rotule has some play, and I bought a bag of 10 for replacing it. However, I do wonder, considering I have the original V1 cheapstakes Wh...

Re: Watch Winder (could use some expertise on code)

What do you mean "some issues" ? I don't want to open your code if I don't know what I'm looking for... Did you deal with rebounds ? some rotary encoders bounce alot. Last time I used one, I had to add a low pass filter (capapacitor and resistor) to kill them rebounds before entering the a...

Re: Sudden Layer Shift

I believe your belt slipped on the X tower.

Probably your hot end encountered more resistance than usual in one spot (maybe due to the lifting of your printed part) and the x belt slipped by one tooth or the motor skipped some steps.

Re: Duet Ethernet is coming

Good !

I would have been curious to see new features, but I will be completely satisfied with a well proven design.

Duet Ethernet is coming

Seems like the ethernet version of the duet is coming soon (end of month or beginning of April).

I can't wait ! Lack of Ethernet is what actually kept me from buying the DuetWifi.

I wonder if the new board will also improve in some other aspects ?

Re: I could use some purchase advice/help.

Hey Edwii, What I could say after everyone has given his point of view, is that whether you keep Rambo or take Duet from the begining depends on your skills to understand technical things. I understand you are new to 3D printing. So was I when I bought my RMax V1 in 2013. I started with a delta, and...

Rambo Cool Project ?

I am thinking about taking the leap to the duet. Before I do so, I'm trying to see where my beloved Rambo will end up. Sell it back ? Boring. Keeping it in a drawer ? Worse. Make another printer ? 1 is enough to me. Maybe a plotter, a laser cutter, or ... ? Do you guys have any idea ? Any link to sh...

Re: OctoPrint plugin...

Just take a look at the JavaScript source code. The bit you're after is currently looking for "PROBE-ZOFFSET" - just change this to deal with whatever your firmware outputs when the z hit happens. I don't know how "normal" Repetier behaves. The only printers I have FSRs on are e...

Re: Bed STL Model

So, as I see it, it is just for display.... you could actually load the STL of the entire printer, as long as the build plate center is at (0, 0, 0).. Am I right ?

@Tincho85, there is a way : in your profile settings, you can set your board style under the "board preference" tab.
