Re: Blown Rambo?

Ugh, no. If your RAMBo is toast, you can get it repaired by Ultimachine. Don't waste your money on a smoothie board (or even worse, a cheap chinese clone.)

Re: HE280 reading DEF after install on v2

A thermistor is a resistor that changes resistance with temperature. Testing it's condition by measuring voltage going through it is like measuring the diameter of a car tire by checking the internal pressure. ;) Don't test the thermistor with the RAMBo powered up, or with the thermistor connected t...

Re: HE280 reading DEF after install on v2

There's a wiring issue or the thermistor is bad. You can check the thermistor by measuring its connection point on the PCB with a multimeter. It should read around 100k-ish at room temperature.

Re: HE280 reading DEF after install on v2

There's a wiring issue with the thermistor. Check to make sure that the whip connector is fully seated in the HE280 PCB and that all the pins are fully seated in that connector as well as the connectors on the other end.

Re: Trick Trucks - Lightweight Aluminum Carriages by Trick Laser

Realistically, there's no need for them. The Trick Truck was built to solve the adjustment difficulty with the melamine Cheap Skate carriages. The current injection molded carriages need no adjustment at all. They grip the t-slot with the correct amount of force due to the design.

Re: control knob stopped working.

It may have simply failed. The only thing I could suggest beyond replacing the LCD would be to reseat the cables(disconnect and reconnect them) and see if that helps.

I've left filament parked in a cold hot end for months at a time with no ill effects. Then again, I don't print ABS at all. If retracting works for you, run with it. :)

Re: I'm back and wanting to upgrade

You'd have to contact Ultimaker about the G02/03 moves, but if it doesn't, I wouldn't call that an issue. You can fuse for a couple of amps higher than the Duet is fused for, I suppose. You'll continue to use the same drive gears with the 0.9 steppers. Printing with ABS is basically 3d printing on ...

The performance improvement due to moving to a 32 bit controller is significant.

Re: I'm back and wanting to upgrade

The jump from the v1 to the v3.2+ is pretty dramatic. Instead of mag ball arms, I'd suggest going with the injection molded carriage set and the ball & cup arms. Same performance and you don't have to worry about the arms falling off. :) The carriages are plug & play - no adjustments to make them ri...

Re: Error compiling for board RAMBo

The issue isn't compiler capability, it's one of code generation. The firmware consumes nearly all the memory resources on the RAMBo. There was some change made in post 1.6.0 compilers that causes the resulting binary to randomly crash.

Re: V2 (mid 2016) to V3.2 (current) upgrade?

The springs are cheap, I wouldn't worry about them as SeeMeCNC can bury you in replacements. ;)

If you don't want to fight the wiring down the inside of one of the towers, you can always run them on the outside using a dowel as a "trellis" like I did with Orange Menace.

This https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1614045 will allow you to mount that 7" LCD to the base of your v2. There's no real reason to move the Duet up top since you can do the display install in the bottom. Here's an adapter to fit the Duet inside the v2 base: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:292772...
