Re: 100k Thermistors types

Just get a thermocouple and call it a day. You'll never break the leads, it's more accurate, and it'll go up to 1000C+ m m So, if you decided you wanted to, you could crank up your hot end, melt the brass and aluminum, and accurately report the temperature throughout the whole process This is actua...

100k Thermistors types

Is it true i can use any 100k thermistor? if so, why not use the GP104L8F from DigiKey? it allows us to go to 300C instead of the stock 200C. it looks to be quite a bit smaller than the B57540G0104F000. am i looking at this right?

all help is appreciated.

Re: what i need to upgrade to a thermocouple ?

Is the " Type-K-Thermocouple " by E3D the same as AD8495? Do we need the Thermocouple Board as well? If so, do the first two pins go into the same place as the thermistor and the last wire connect to aux slot as noted above? Thank you for the help! No, yes, NO! and you're welcome. There i...

Re: Thermistor Fail

This isnt a constant issue. I have gone up to, but not exceeded 300C could that be the issue? Could be. The instructions tell you not to go above 295 or else you'll damage the thermistor. I don't know how strict that is, or how much wiggle room there is (if any). Ah. See on the v6 page it states &q...

Re: Thermistor Fail

A def indication is indeed an inability to read the thermistor. This is usually caused by a loose wire to the thermistor. To check turn off power and unplug the thermistor from the Rambo and with an ohm-meter measure the resistance of the thermistor, at room temperature the thermistor should read a...

And this

I can hook it up to my RAMBo 1.3L (Rostock Max v2) some how and change some setting and it will work?

Is it that easy?

Re: Thermistor Fail

I've been running my Rostock since late October. It's my first printer, but I have over 13 hours of run time. I upgraded to the E3D V6 a couple weeks ago and have been running mostly PLA and BronzeFill. Very recently I will be printing and I'll get "def" for my nozzle and bed temperatures....

i hope you dont mind me asking this here, but has anyone had issues with filament on the E3D? Every time I finish a print I have to disassemble the hot end and remove all the plastic otherwise I cant get it to print again. At first I thought this was a heat issue, but i cranked the heat up to 240 an...

Re: Rostock MAX purchase poll

The price was pretty damn good compared to what else i saw on the market. I've been looking for a very specific minimum build volume. The Rostock falls short by a little; a little is just as bad as a lot. The way I see it though is that i'd rather chop my projects up into 3rds because its a little s...

Re: So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

So the Pro PLA was doing significantly better, but I still had issues. I turned down the heat and added a fan. Both helped, but I still ended up having several clogging issues even when using the Pro PLA. I decide that maybe upgrading to the E3D v6 might be the smart way to go. I took the opportunit...

The stock kit is NOT complete! You'll need a bit of ABS to finish off the two fan shrouds, plus there are several "optional" items that you really should not skimp on. In addition there are some items (consumables) that you'll need. Download the instructions manual and make sure you have e...
