Re: Calabration

Same exact spot where mine always gave me trouble. :/ What I finally did was to buy the Duet Smart Effector Adapter from 713maker as well as a Duet Smart effector. Problem solved. https://713maker.com/rostock/duet-smart-effector-adaptor https://www.duet3d.com/DeltaSmartEffector I already use a Duet ...

Re: Appearance of Parts Tapering with Z-Height

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

viewtopic.php?f=37&t=12662&sid=453fdf05 ... 702156d4a1

But to answer your question, yes, mine gets off noticeably in the X & Y axises, but Z is slightly affected as well.

Re: M117 message not working

No, I edit mine all of the time using Notepad++. No problems.

Be sure that your editor appends a "Carriage Return / Line Feed" character pair to the end of each line.

Can you post your G-Code for us please?

Re: Hotend not getting up to temperature. Broken resistor?

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.

Re: Rostock MaxV2 startup

Cura is doing something like that to me after I set up a new profile for my Mosaic. I no longer can set the hotend temperature inside of Cura, and I have to do it from the web interface for my Duet. Is this what's going on for you?

Yup. What Gene said. And the bed while you are at it. Or you could leave it at 12 VDC since it's adjustable. I've been running mine at 13.8 for years now and I haven't had a lick of trouble. Keep in mind that as you raise the voltage, you raise the current as well. So keep an eye on those terminal b...

Re: Dead Power Supply?

Since I always buy a spare, the second one is in, and it works fine (so far). It's on a new FLSun printer, which due to my love, mostly hate, relationship with it, I don't have a lot of build time on it. So I don't really have anything to judge it by, but so far it does what it's supposed to do. I d...

Re: Layer Shifting

This is what I'm talking about: m Or: m So your motor is good for 2 amps, I think the early ones were 1.3 - 1.6 amps. So in any case, the extra current shouldn't be hurting anything. So do you feel the filament push back against your fingers when it retracts? This could still be a leveling problem a...

Mine died as well, I would dump it and go with a new one. In all fairness to SeeMeCNC, while it's PSU died early, so did the one on my FLSun, as well as its pricey Letour 40A replacement.

Well, the hotend and the platform look fine. Better looking than mine, that's for sure... I have my hotend mounted under the platform, but I have the Delta Smart Effector/713Maker combo, so I sort of have to. You could use the normal corner mounted fans (where the fans are mounted horizontally and b...

Re: Extruder?

Okay, this is a head scratcher. Isn't the hotend on the Geeetech a direct drive extruder?

But the occasional skip isn't going to hurt anything. I usually get them (if I get them at all, that is) on the first layer.

Re: Layer Shifting

Yeah, Gene's instructions are some of the very best for assembling anything. He should work for IKEA... For comparison, try building anything from FLSun and you will get a rude awakening. So it's pretty easy to one of these things together.

Pictures of the platform area would be helpful.

Re: Layer Shifting

I don't think so, mine is set to 0mm. But you could try it, just be sure to make note of your changes.

Ahh, next time watch the extruder and see if it is actually retracting. And it also has a screw that might need tightening.

Re: Accelerometer i2c recv Error

215 isn't (well, shouldn't be) anywhere near the max that your system is set to, so that's probably not it.

Sounds like a job for BusPirate. It can monitor I2C and send the output to a file for you (and a whole bunch of other things too).
