Re: Firmware list

Teacup seems pretty nice. Judging by the code it would certainly crush Marlin and Repetier performance wise, very glad to see they did a way with one of the huge drawbacks of the two already. The code is also much better structured and less hampered by legacy code/compatibility. So yes, certainly th...

Re: Firmware list

At least Repetier and Marlin are a hopeless mess when it comes to code (and yes, I've done custom Repetier software for the ORION for example, so I have worked with it). So just modifying the UI would be mostly putting lipstick on a pig . And since coding is my day job, I'd rather not work on cleanu...

Firmware list

I've been playing with the idea to develop my own firmware for my trusty Orion for a while. I'd like to overcome some of the limitations of the usual firmware and increase the performance and user interface. However, before I embark on this potentially misguided journey, I would like to make sure th...

Transparent filament. Drilled a hole in the top and put in a 5mm LED.

"Ming dog"

To date, probably one of my nicest looking 3D prints ever. This one is super clean! Took almost 10 hours to print. Size of the bottom plate is almost the diameter of the ORION heated bed. Pictures don't do it justice, it's really impressive! Makes me glad I chose SeeMeCNC! http://ironcreek.net/photo...

Re: Zeroing variations

I slowed the homing speed way down to make the result more accurate.
Try this in your Configuration.h file:

Re: Why is the Orion using a printable radius of 75?

You are 100% correct. It is physically not possible to print that far out. I have successfully printed right up to the white circle. In fact, at the first pass, the nozzle actually bumped into one of the clips that holds down the glass plate. So yes, it is physically possible. Would I recommend it ...

Yes, I'm using an E3D hotend.
