Re: SIMPLE CONNECTOR FOR HOTEND WIRING COMING SOON

Never put tinned wires in a spring connector.

Use a push pin to open the spring works best. You can push it...

Re: SIMPLE CONNECTOR FOR HOTEND WIRING COMING SOON

Got a board this past Thursday at the MakerHive. Install was super easy... the neatest and quickest EVER! Sure is nice to not have to crimp pins or solder. Very handy to have direct plug in compatibility with stock SeeMeCNC 8-pin plug wiring harness. Now I can quickly swap platforms between machines...

Great - thank you so much! While we're at it - does your 8-pin wiring become loose/unplugged through every day printing? Happened to me last night, caused an 8+ hour print to fail. Thinking of wrapping it in kapton tape.. You could replace the OEM connector with this one that latches for a more sec...

No, they are a bit different. But may not make a difference to how your FSR plate mounts.
Of course the files are on github.

So your deviation has approximately doubled with your newest printed parts setup?

Re: Duet Auto-Calibration results - More Data Needed!

@DC42 could a function be added to the firmware to allow individual movement of each tower? Then we could fasten a dial indicator to the carriage and command it to move say 25mm then measure the actual movement to determine your actual steps per mm. Likewise, measuring each tower individually could...
