On Order

Pulled the trigger last night on an Artemis with the color display. After following posts and reviews, can wait to get my hands on it.

My 4 year old Max 2+ is getting a little tired and cranky.

Re: [Solved] Print 3dlabprint Airplanes and Rostock Max - any success?

Attached are sample .factory files for S3D to print part of the P-51 Mustang. These have reinforced flanges and intermediate stiffeners. This was done by manipulating the processes within the .factory file. Fuselage 3 is a plain printed section, Fuselage 4 is in seven sections using silver, white an...

Re: new he280 hotend issues

I initially found that the Bowden tube was exiting the braid too close to the HE and causing the plug to see intermittent contact by pulling it loose. Pierced the braid higher up and problem went away.

Re: new he280 hotend issues

When the screen first changes from the startup screen to the status screen, for just a few seconds temperature should be reported for both thermistors before changing to def. One is likely correct and most likely the bed. The other will likely report -50C which indicates a no signal is being receive...

Re: Faster Heated Bed

To me the wiring sketch you posted looks okay and is basically how mine is connected. One question however is on the 24VDC to 12VDC converter, how did you handle or connect the magic yellow wires? Looks like on the 24VDC side connect the yellow to the red but on the 12VDC side the yellow should just...

Same here with Jim's ducted effector printed from ABS, doesn't seem to be an issue at all.

I also use S3D, the only thing that looks a little odd in your setting is the retraction speed. For me it would be quite high, it may be possible that the fast retraction is pulling a "bubble" from the end of the filament and leaving it in the nozzle tip to be pushed out immediately when t...

If you use a feeler gauge (I use a .004" also) suggest that you then lower the nozzle to -0.10mm and set z zero there. So i have the same feeler gauge and im trying to calibrate, do you zero it to the feeler gauge then calibrate zero again by just going down to -0.10mm? Exactly BUT you must be...
