Re: FLASHAIR (& other) WIFI SD Cards?

I've tried it in the past with TrendNet(?) WiFi SD cards and it didn't work. I think it was related to power draw.

If you've got a v4, you're MUCH better off using Cura 3 or 4.

Re: Max V2 modernization

Considering the number of v2's out there with working HE280 upgrades, I wouldn't be so quick to blame the HE280. ;)

Re: "Blobby" or "Melted" vertically thin features

You may also want to investigate Cura. There's a number of pre-configured profiles on SeeMeCNC's git repo, here: https://github.com/seemecnc/slicing-profiles

Re: Large objects.

You might try printing on a raft. That would give the support a good surface to adhere to on the bottom.

Re: Odd Rostock Max V2 layer issue

Is the hot end whip or ptfe tubing putting any strain on the effector as it moves? For giggles, try printing on a cold bed and see if the same artifacts are present.

Re: v3.2 Stepper Motor upgrade?

Smoother motion and slightly improved print quality on very thin layers will smaller diameter nozzles. (at least that's what I've seen on my machine, others may have more to offer on this.)

Re: v3.2 Stepper Motor upgrade?

When I updated my v3 to 3.2, I didn't change the motors. It's not a requirement, just a "nice to have". Keep in mind that if you don't change the stepper motors, you'll need to tweak the config.g file for the Duet to reflect the 80steps/mm that the old motors use.

No worries. Failbook tends to suck all the oxygen out of the room, much to the detriment of the end user. It's a great way to bitch about your family and their politics, but is wildly ineffective as a community support device. :) I can't recall the last time I saw a PLA part warp. What material are ...

Re: Quickie: V4 how to keep the live Z adjustment all the time?

It'll be zero. The "baby steps" field is transient - once you reboot the Duet, it goes away. (You should power cycle the printer after any changes made to config.g or config-override.g.)

Re: Quiet down the fan in the base?

I'm pretty sure it's a standard 12v fan - the label on it should say for sure. You should be able to replace it with a Noctua fan if you want.

Re: Quickie: V4 how to keep the live Z adjustment all the time?

In the Duet web interface, go to Settings, then click the System Editor tab. Click on the "config-override.g" file. You'll have a line that looks something like this: M665 L340.500 R150.120 H542.745 B145.0 X0.052 Y-0.040 Z0.000 (this is from my Artemis) The "H" field defines the max Z height of your...

Re: V4 "Z probe already triggered before move" when trying to check bed map

Make sure the bed isn't resting on the edge of the metal enclosure - there shouldn't be any tilt to it at all.

If you contact support@seemecnc.com you'll get a faster response than here - this isn't an "official" support channel, it's for user-to-user support. :)

Re: Printer just kinda died, won't print but still on

When you re-upload the firmware, does the display show the normal "idle" screen? You might try uploading the eeprom_clear program and then re-upload the firmware. Note that you have to use the 1.6.0 version of the Arduino IDE for this.

Re: RMV2 and Dual Extrusion?

Have you considered the "Y" feeder that SeeMeCNC sells? Keep in mind that it's only good for HE280 or SE300 hot ends though.
(The V2 can't use the SE300 unless you upgrade to a Duet, but it can use the HE280 and you get decent auto-cal with it.)

"software leveling" on a delta is basically wishful thinking. It depends on having your calibration absolutely nailed , and if your calibration is THAT good, you don't need "software leveling" anyway. If doing the manual iterative calibration on your v2 is just not working out for you, I'd highly re...

That's not going to be caused by being too high on the first layer. It's "overs-squishing" the first layer.

Re: SETTING HEIGHT PROBLEM

If it prints fine with MatterControl and not with Cura, you probably have a setting issue going on with Cura. Can you print a MC file via SD?

Also, you don't say what model/rev printer you're using - that can help.

tnx.
