Re: Duet 2 Maestro

My take away from watching that clip is that it will not perform the same as the Duet 2, and tailored more for the OEMs,,, But I nominate you to get back with us on your impressions. The Duet 3 on the other hand,,,,,

My opinion would be that it would be easier to change the fan in the existing power supply.

Re: New to 3D printing and need help

For print leveling to work, the controller needs to have a sensor to notify it that the nozzle has touched the bed. What you show does not have a sensor. The Arms the previous owner put on appear to be by Trick Laser. He shows 300 mm for the arms he currently sells,,,, You have the old style, but th...

Re: New to 3D printing and need help

Unless the previous owner added a sensor of some sorts, print leveling will not work,,, and you would have to adjust it manually. Post some pictures, it may help identify what you got there.

McMaster-Carr has a decent selection of 3/32 balls, Steel, Stainless, Carbide, and Ceramic. The last two are rally expensive,,,, almost 9 bucks for 5 balls.

Re: Discontinued???

I'll post up a picture of them tonight. And I'll try and find my firmware file for it as well. Once I took out the slop with the springs, I had to make some changes, I think to the sensor sensitivity?, so that the auto calibration worked.

Re: EZstruder "backslip" problem?

This all started with a "new" spool of filament? Under extruding, and skipping,,,, Have you compared the diameter of the filament with the old spool??

If the only thing changed was the spool, and the machine checks out, I'd be looking at that spool.

Discontinued???

While showing a coworker the SeeMeCNC webstore, I was surprised to see that the Eris has been discontinued. It had some teething pains at first, but I didn't figure it to be that much of a problem child. After I installed springs on the arms to take up the lash, and re adjusted settings in the firmw...

Mine did that also. I figured it had to do with an extreme difference in endstop offsets of the three towers.

Re: Homing failure

I would revisit your endstop wiring and connections. When you do a home command, the arms will move up until they hit the switches, and then move down off of them. It sounds like the RamBo is getting an indication that the carriages are already at the switch, and is trying to move them off of them.

Your hotend is probably clogged, probably from to long and fast filament retractions.

Why would you want to limit your torque? Reduced torque would cause increased skipping steps.

Murphy seems to be always looking over my shoulder, so I try to be one step ahead of him. He'd snap a rubber band in the middle of a 30 hour print, just because.
