Re: Rostock Max v2 Noob question. Help please

You can replace the two 6.8 Ohm resistors with a single 12v heater cartridge. I did a video a number of years ago on upgrading the stock hot end with a threaded thermistor and a 40W heater cartridge. You'll need this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/222900991161 (threaded thermistor) and this: https://www....

Re: Rostock Max v2 Noob question. Help please

First of all, don't knock yourself - everyone started out somewhere. When I started working with 3D printers, I was a rage-quitting, curse-filled, madman. Now I'm just a curse-filled madman. ;) If your hot end won't go over 189C, you might have a weak power supply. Check the output voltage of the po...

Re: how to gcode?: continuous, uninterrupted extrusion

The rotation can be controlled by the feed rate parameter when you're commanding the axis to move.

Re: Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

Did you update the thermistor type in the firmware after you changed the hot end? The E3D thermistor is different than the one in the stock v2 hot end.

Re: Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

Check the voltage at the RAMBo while you're trying to heat the hot end. It should be 12v. Some of the older ATX power supplies give up the ghost.

Also check to make sure that the wires are not lose in the compression terminal on the RAMBo end.

You're quite welcome!

I've got a v4 coming soon and I may be doing a live build of it on my YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/f15sim) - you might want to subscribe so you get notified if/when the stream starts. It will likely be next Saturday.

That's what my Octoprint plugin is based on as well as the SeeMeCNC calibration page. If you're concerned about it, you can send him a pm here. He lurks here, so may s...

I'd be curious to see how it compares to the delta calibration plugin that I wrote based on dc42's original javascript calculator.

Was your code in the firmware?

I suspect you're missing a setting or something. I'd email Andy at support@seemecnc.com - he's the dual extrusion expert.

Re: Duel extruder problem

When you load that profile sans batarang, does it show you the two extruder tabs on the right? (see example below)
2019-08-16 04_29_46-Ultimaker Cura.png
Do you have temps set in both tabs and specific model sections assigned to the respective extruder tabs?

Re: Fried my Rambo - Can I just 'drop in' a Duet board?

Not that I'm aware of. I saw a mount on Thingiverse some years ago that would allow an easy drop-in of a Duet to where the RAMBo was.

You might also look at at Duet Maestro if the Duet WiFi would be overkill. It's less money.

Re: Fried my Rambo - Can I just 'drop in' a Duet board?

The primary gain in the Duet is the ability to do auto-calibration. In order to do that, you either need a Smart Effector and your hot end of choice, or the SE300 hot end assembly from SeeMeCNC. I'd also /highly/ recommend you get the ball/cup arm kit if your machine is still using the u-joint arms....

Re: Ghosting on vertical surfaces

If the v4 is like the 3.2, you only need to loosen the motor screws a tiny bit and lift up the motor a tiny bit before tightening the screws.

I would have mentioned this earlier, but I thought you'd built the v4 from a kit. My apologies.
