Re: Is my Rostock Max2 possessed by demons?

Did you try bumping up the current first?

Re: HELP NEEDED WITH RETRACTION SETTINGS (NEWBIE)

That doesn't look like a retraction problem to me, try printing the same part again but this time slice it with Cura.

Re: Cant seem to Calibrate it right.

A couple of things, I have the Tricklaser FSR plate too, and I had to fab up supports to get it to "float" without any lateral movement since it doesn't come with any hardware to mount it. So, how do you have it mounted? And do your FSRs respond reasonably close to each other using the sam...

Re: Is my Rostock Max2 possessed by demons?

The dual extrusion system of theirs was in development when I bought mine, so I just have the single. Do yourself a favor and reach out to owners of the dual system to get their settings, and to see how well it is working before buying one. I'm really not sure what constitutes an extruder that *woul...

Re: Is my Rostock Max2 possessed by demons?

Mostly you want the wires exiting the area as quickly as possible. The heater wires crossing the stepper wires shouldn't be a big deal, but any crossings that you make are best done at 90 degree angles. The sleeve idea is a good one (why didn't I think of that?), but I would buy a blank single-sided...

Re: Is my Rostock Max2 possessed by demons?

Oh, and after looking your video a few more times, it looks like the X axis "took a dive" starting the mayhem. Open up the area where your controller is and be sure that your stepper motor wires and your heater wires don't cross over the board. Route them as necessary to avoid EMI from tri...

Go to your G Code terminal and type in "M906" (be sure to capitalize the "M") and hit enter. This will give you your current settings and they will displayed in more or less this format: M906 X1200 Y1200 Z1200 E800 I30 ; Set motor currents (mA) and motor idle factor in per cent B...

Re: Duet Ethernet connectivity problems

It just did the lockup thing again (preceded by the click as it stopped), heaters stayed on, and the platform would not move, nor could I shut down the heaters. I turned off the power to allow me to move the hotend off of the part, but I left the USB plugged in. I googled the problem and DC42 sugges...

Re: Is my Rostock Max2 possessed by demons?

Looking at the video again, it looks like the problem started at the 40 second mark. That's when the stepper motor slipped (that's the noise you hear).

You could try upping the motor currents for X,Y & Z, just make a note of the "before" currents, and don't go crazy.

Re: Duet Ethernet connectivity problems

I leave it on with just USB power while I'm away to see if it fails, and it died again while I was at work. It's had two different Ethernet cables, and either your adapter or my NIC has automatic crossover because I don't have to use a crossover cable (which is nice). It has its own dedicated NIC ca...

Re: Duet Ethernet connectivity problems

It was the board resetting that caused that problem, the next print came out okay. I printed out a part this evening, and other than my Z axis stopping at a weird angle, it was fine. However, I'm back to my board not connecting to Ethernet. I've reformatted the card, and then repartitioned it to a s...

Well, mostly good. The only dropouts that I got were after firmware uploads, those can be ignored. And I didn't have to power cycle the damn thing after a firmware upgrade. Finally.

I went ahead and bought a PCI Ethernet card and a crossover adapter. Once it gets in, I'll give that a go.

I also disabled the Bluetooth adapter in my PC.

Re: Duet Ethernet connectivity problems

Oh, and I am running my printer off of 13.8 volts. And other than playing havoc with the Duet's PID loop for the hotend, it works fine. I can drop that down if you think that's the problem (it shouldn't be).
