Re: Max v2 issue with peaks and valleys in bed map[NEW DATA]

"Yes, just have first layer issues further out near the edges of the bed"
On my RMv2, I blamed that on tower rotation changes, and blamed it on humidity changes.

Re: EZR Struder clicking

I assume you re-used the stepper motors from the printers, for the new extruders. With both printers in the same room, I would compare the extruder motor temperature on each one,,,,, if the one that is skipping is cooler than the other one, I'd bump up the current some more.

Re: bed temperature

Does it seem to take the bed longer to heat up also? I would check the terminals on the RamBO board, check that the screws are tight, as the connection can loosen over time with the repeated heat cycles.

I assume it still holds true with the Duet,,,,, Don't plug, or unplug the motor wires while the board is powered up.

Re: Dual extrusion feed kits V3/V4

Yes, you can set the steps per millimeter at a different value for the extruder motor, that's how you would do the initial setup for extrusion rate. 80 is a starting point, but may have to be fine tuned depending upon the drive gear, etc.

Re: printer continues in "dry run" after hardware failure notice

What printer do you have? and what hotend is on it? If it's the old hotend, one of the resistors may be burnt out.

Re: v3.2 Stepper Motor upgrade?

But wait, let's get this straight as I'm shortly modding my V3s to DUET boards, quote: When I updated my v3 to 3.2, I didn't change the motors . It's not a requirement, just a "nice to have". Keep in mind that if you don't change the stepper motors, you'll need to tweak the config.g file for the Du...

Re: Need a Free SOLIDWORKS Trial?

In my library of CAM, I have SheetCAM, MeshCAM, and V-Carve. The CAM portion of Fusion360 really kicks it up several notches with the tool libraries, and the adaptive machining. Watching it rough out a pocket in aluminum, using a 1/4" endmill, with a depth of cut set at 1/4" is amazing. I did have m...

Re: Need a Free SOLIDWORKS Trial?

i use Solidworks at work, but I have my own subscription of Fusion 360. I can't see see spending $4,000.00 for solidworks, when I get way more out of Fusion 360 for only $310.00 a year.
