Re: WiFi dropout - how to reconnect?

Oh, ok. Mine seems to like .15mm. But I've replaced the steppers with .9 degree ones. And yes I did get your PM.

Re: WiFi dropout - how to reconnect?

Do you have a Maker's group in your area? Huntsville has one and they have 4 or 5 guys who print. Maybe you can take one of your problem children down to a local Maker's group. The other option is your local high or middle schools, they tend to have printers these days too. I wouldn't take your new ...

Re: WiFi dropout - how to reconnect?

I think that it's .4mm for a .4mm nozzle. So the size of the nozzle will define the layer height.

But I've never tried to go larger than .4mm, so I'm not sure.

Re: WiFi dropout - how to reconnect?

Yeah, deadlines suck. But with the SD card you can print without the WiFi. If you are going to be doing this as a business, you need backup printers. I have four of them. And a healthy collection of spare parts, and a voltmeter. If it doesn't hurt the quality of your finished product, re-slice your ...

The VIN undervoltage event is worth looking into. Since it's brand new, see if you can swap out the power supply with a new one.

I've got the Duet Ethernet, which drops out frequently as well. But it keeps printing, and I just have to hit the "Connect" button to bring it back up. Not really worth investigating to me.

Re: HE280 reading DEF after install on v2

The thermistor is connected in series with another resistor that's sized to make the thermistor run in its "sweet-ish spot" when it's at its working temperature. There's a good chance that this resistor is bad. That said, one of the things that I would be squeamish about is mucking around with therm...

Morgan Mega sighting

Okay, so not my machine, but while on a business trip to South Africa, I saw a Morgan Mega in action. Our supplier has one of these and it was pretty cool to watch run.

Aside from the massive build envelope, I didn't see any advantage to it though.

I think that if you go down one post in the forum you will get your answer.

Yeah, one of them is bad. But I would swap it out for a modern hotend and reap the benefits of that upgrade. I really liked my Prometheus, but it wasn't compatible with my Delta Smart Effector, which I love even more.
