Re: Home towers just moved head down slightly

I would do further research on the forum about Home issues. I just had the same issue and I ended up clearing the EEPROM and reflashing it. This worked immediately. However, if you look at my posts I ask many more questions then any I have correctly answered. Hope you find the solution. This thread ...

Warning Moving to Low

I am trying to use the auto calibrate and I get the warning that Warning Moving Too Low You cannot move any lower. This position on your bed is too low for the extruder to reach. You need to raise your bed or adjust your limits to allow the extruder to go lower. I never had an issue before what coul...

Lid Fail ABS

I am not sure why this is failing. It is the lid to a box. The printer starts with a nice grid but it is suppose to be flat instead it does this crazy mesh.

What has to be changed? I imagine something in the STL file itself? Attached is also the STL file. Thanks

Re: Size Problem

I know I can scale it up or down but the print was made to certain measured specs why is it showing up so big in Repetier. Changing the scale would just be a guessing game. Is there an option to go from inches to mm or something?

Size Problem

When I load the stl files in Repetier my print a Pirate Ship is bigger than the printer bed and will not print it because the pirate ship is bigger then the print area of my printer. The size /scale is on 1. I am not sure what is going on.

This is what happens no matter the print..

The one cheapskate seems to slip when it comes far down.
What could be the cause? How do I troubleshoot this? And fix it?

Printer unused for awhile one Cheapskate slips

Sadly, my Pirate Ship Radio 3-D Print Project has had many delays. So my Rostock Max v2 has sat idle for months now. I started it up today and tried to print but one of the Cheapskates when it goes down to print it plummets down and stays there. I assume that over time a delta printer unused isn't h...

Re: Changing position on heat bed

I tried doing it in NetFab before I posted my question. I dont understand because when I try it in Repetier and netFabb (basic) I can't get it on the side I want it. The object is in a box and it wont reorientate the box so the long neck will sit flat on the print bed. I also can't seem to do a free...

I am trying to rotate it but I can never get it there. Can someone assist and walk me through it. I would actually love to print this out through Ma...

Re: What is causing these prints to fail like this?

I was using Purple Disappearing Elmer's Glue. Hairspray is better? Could I spray it on the print itself from layer to layer if I was to stick with ABS?

Re: Heated bed cannot reach temp

Rev3 bed on the RoMAX v2
Takes a long time to reach 90 degrees enclosed and with the pot lid on. Once the lid is removed it plummets down to 80 degrees and never climbs again.
Waiting on support's response.

Re: Heated bed cannot reach temp

I am having the same problem. It is going into almost an hour now to try and reach 90 degrees. I ended up taking poster board and encircling the whole printer for a make shift enclosure. That gets it up to 90 degrees only slightly faster. Windows are closed.. I have the v3 bed also
