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

Cory, does that pattern change if you rotate or flip the glass? Try turning it 90 degrees (make a mark on the glass edge so you can more easily track how you've rotated it) and see how that goes. I'm curious to see how (or if) the results change. I wish I could get my hands on your machine for an af...

It might have been an issue on the browser end of it.

Re: Why doesn't this print a circle?

It won't even preview in Cura.

I'm not sure what to tell you - you might want to ask dc42 either here or on the duet3d forum - he's the genius behind the Duet boards.

I'd like to try S3D, but it's decided it's not activated and won't reactivate. Time to kick some ass I suppose. Jerks.

Re: Duet Ethernet file upload unreliable.

No. SeeMeCNC doesn't provide customized versions of the firmware. All the customization with RepRapFirmware is done through the config.g file.

Re: Duet Ethernet file upload unreliable.

This is the first time I've ever heard of the problem you're describing - you might want to contact the guys at duet3d.com and see what they can tell you.
What version of the firmware are you using?

Re: Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

I would strongly suggest watching some YouTube videos on how to use a multimeter. A ".16" reading indicates that you've got the meter set up incorrectly. If you can post a photo of the meter showing the dial, I can probably point you to the right setting.

Re: SE300 with Azteeg X3 Pro?

The main feature of the SE300 is the strain gauge that's built into the PCB. Unfortunately, there's no 8 bit firmware capable of handling the output (that I'm aware of). If you want to update your Rostock MAX, an SE300, assembled wiring whip, and a Duet WiFi will do the job nicely.

I don't use the Smart Effector. My two v1 -> Duet upgrades use FSRs. The Smart Effector wasn't a thing when I did those updates.

Re: MAX v2 with Duet upgrade

Well the ball cups are on the ends of the arms you already have. :) You'd remove the "bar bell" ball assemblies from your old effector platform and transfer them on to the 713Maker plate.

Re: Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

That's just weird.

Check the terminals on the RAMBo for the hot end and make sure they're tight and undamaged. Start a heating cycle and measure the voltage on the terminals. You should see 11.9-12v.

Re: Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

Try bumping your Drive Min to 205. Just to be clear, when you try heating the hot end normally, it DOES get very hot, correct? Is the temperature change not reflected in the display? If it does NOT get hot, I'm almost wondering if they accidentally sent you a 24v heater cart instead of the 12v one.....

Re: Hey from VA

Jim, the stringing could be that you're printing the filament too hot - what material are you using? Are you slicing with one of SeeMeCNC's Cura profiles?

You could always contact the TrickLaser guys and get the numbers from them - if nothing else it would allow you to compare what you've got. I'd also check to make sure that your steps/mm are set correctly (80 for 1.8 degree steppers) and that the drive gears on the axis motors aren't slipping or bin...

Re: MAX v2 with Duet upgrade

I'd be tempted to use a Smart Effector instead of the bltouch. The strain gauge may be more accurate and won't require all the extra plastic for mounting, thus would decrease the effector mass. It might be more expensive than the bltouch though. 713maker.com sells an adapter plate that will allow yo...

As far as I know, those parameters should be the same for the TrickTrucks.

Re: V2 with Duet and smart effector

It'll be around 94.6 I think. You can use the extruder calibration process in the v2 docs to nail down the exact value.
