Re: Cura 3.6 preloaded Rostock profile

I've used the presets in Cura with both my 3.2 and Artemis. You still need to import the SE300 profiles though. :)

Re: Orion upgrade questions

If your Orion uses the older heating resistors (one on each "side" of the round heater block), there's no real gotchas with the firmware. However, if you have an Orion with the HE280 hot end that allows the Orion to auto-calibrate, you need to stick with the SeeMeCNC supplied firmware - th...

Re: Cura 3.6 preloaded Rostock profile

You can download the hotend-specific profiles from SeeMeCNC's git repository - there's Cura profiles for both the SE300 and HE280 hot ends. The 3.2 profile should work reasonably well as-is, but you'll need to make sure the travel speeds are under 250mm/sec if you only have a v3. (The RAMBo can't ha...

Re: Rostock MAX v3.2 reviews

SeeMeCNC is a pretty small company with pretty large capabilities. Every injection molded part on one of their printers was built from molds machined on-site and shot on injection molding machines that are also on-site. You're not going to find that in any 3D printer built inside the USA. I would re...

Re: Layer Shifting

Is the nozzle lifting before it makes a travel move?

You might also check the wiring of all three steppers to make sure a pin isn't crawling out of the connector shell.

Re: Rostock MAX v3.2 reviews

I have Rostock MAX models going back to 2013 and none have failed due to a mechanical issue, with the exception of the pre-ball joint arms. (The u-joints would sometimes gall the stainless steel axles and begin to bind.) The ball & socket arms have eliminated that issue. The cycle of tweaking an...

Re: Artemis + Y-Adapter + Simplify3D

The only time you /ever/ need to upgrade the Artemis firmware is if Duet3D publishes a new build that has a bug fix or new feature that you want or need. Unlike the RAMBo firmware, every single aspect of how the Artemis firmware works is controlled by the config.g, config-override.g, and other "...

Re: Duet Z-Probe Problems

If the hot-end fan is running, it can cause this. It shouldn't affect how the z-probe operates when doing calibration.

400mm/sec is only valid for Duet-equipped machines. Dial it back to around 200mm/sec.

Re: Layer Shifting

What I would do is try the HE280 profile for Cura. You can get all the pre-built Cura profiles here: https://github.com/seemecnc/slicing-pro ... master.zip. The HE280 is very similar in performance to the E3Dv6, so it should work with no tweaking.

Re: Layer Shifting

FYI, if you're not doing a z-lift on retract (and thus travel), the nozzle could be striking the print and causing the layer shift. I seriously doubt it's the weight of the effector platform. Your travel speed could also be a factor - anything over around 220mm/sec on a RAMBo can be problematic.

Re: MAX v3 Stops Mid-Print with Newer Firmware

The only version of the firmware that you should be running is the one on SeeMeCNC's git repo. It has customizations for the HE280 hot end that the main branch of Repetier Firmware does not have.

Re: MAX v3 Stops Mid-Print with Newer Firmware

Are you printing from USB? If so, is your computer going to sleep?

Also, make sure that if you're compiling/uploading firmware, you're using the 1.6.0 version of the Arduino IDE.

Re: V3.2 Carbon Fiber Rod upgrade

Did you delete config-override.g? You need to do that and then re-run first calibration. (If you created a bed map, delete and re-create that as well.)
