Re: anybody in South FL??? rostock max V2 def error (thermistor heated bed or hot end)

Hi, Just tested both. Seems the replaced hot end is 180ohm and what I think is the heated bed around 90 Ohm though hard to trace the wires i went from schematic etc.. I actually changed the hot end when I had the def error because i was having issues with the resistor connections etc.. Could be the ...

anybody in South FL??? rostock max V2 def error (thermistor heated bed or hot end)

Hi all, I've been in and out of hospital for a while now and was never able to fix and debug my rostock max v2. The last i checked I had a def error which from a previous posting and searching means i have a broken or shorted thermistor on the bed or hot end. i guess there was a spare thermistor hoo...

Any printer experts in South FL can help give life to my printer?

I had to take a pause from using my rostock max (i love it) after I started getting a def error and hospitalizations. From the forum board and my testing it seemed the most common reasons are either a hotend thermistor error or one on the bed. I got as far as testing that I get resistance on both of...

Re: Rostock Max E3d V6 (or knock off)

Hi, Hmm so even the heated bed? I didn't even touch that part. As for testing you mean unplug the thermistor and test just between thermistor for resistance? I shouldn't check the cable on the printer side for resistance? Finally should you still get def showing if you unplug the thermistor for hot ...

Re: Adding more Extruders to Ramps ?

Hi all, First thanks for all the info. And yes my apologies. Running on 1hr of sleep at most and 103F for last 5 days. Combine that with a Rambo, a Ramps and an Azteeg X3 pro build all simultaneously (thankfully getting help with the other two). It's definitely my fault there on terminology and I wi...

Re: Adding more Extruders to Ramps ?

Any chance on getting your firmware notes or info for how you coded the two new steppers in the video?

I guess I'll mimic a bit the retraction and other settings they have on diamond hot end.

Hi, Thanks for the video. You are indeed the first one I've seen to at least document the process let alone do it . Ramps is what I meant as I'd rather not change the board if I don't need to. Looks like you're doing diamond hot end too. Do you have your firmware yet to share or any other files? I d...

Re: under extrusion problem (I think) but from what?

Hey,
ABS. I've been using simplify3d for slicing and had zero changes in settings (or ABS filament or anything) between working prints and these crappy prints. I left for 1 week on vacation and that's it.. Which makes this weirder.

No other thoughts or suggestions? I haven't figured out what my problem and cleaned the parts best I could. not sure what else to do and still kind of new.. might opt for e3d hot end replacement for lack of anything else to try.

yep for the boards you mention. I don't mind adding add ons or doing some soldering.

The smoothieboard seems to say I can solder my own extra drivers with free gpio. but then ends there..
