Re: V3 to V3.2 - Stepper Motors?

You can opt to buy .9 degree steppers as part of the upgrade kit.

Re: Question about temperature 'def'

Just for grins, check your power supply output when the hotend and bed are both heating up. That's going to be where the max draw is happening. If it's less than 11.8-12v, you may have a power supply issue. If you've got one of the non-ATX supplies, there's an adjustment pot on it (where the termina...

Re: 5" touch screen for upgraded V3 machine

The screen kit for the 3.2 will work, you'll just need to drill some mounting holes for the LCD mount and a hole for the cabling to pass through.

Re: Slic3r offset by 100,100 on v2 max arduino version

If you're a Slic3r fan, you should get the Prusa Edition. It's got machine control in it and is also more frequently updated than the mainline Slic3r code.

Re: Print failure when printing vertical columns?

Make sure you've got your slicer configured to lift the nozzle on retract - z-lift or z-hop.

You can also add a brim to your print that will give it increased surface area on the bed to improve the part's hold on the bed.

Re: Slic3r offset by 100,100 on v2 max arduino version

As far as I know, that's a bug in how MC runs the Slic3r engine. If you have to use Slic3r, you might be better served by just downloading Slic3r itself and use that.

Re: Print failure when printing vertical columns?

I've never used larger than an 8, but I don't know of any inherent size issue. It does need to be FAT formatted, though. The system can't read an NTFS-formatted card.

Re: Print failure when printing vertical columns?

You would slice with Cura and print from the SD card. Cura isn't really meant to be a printer host other than for Ultimaker printers. That being said, the network link from Cura to the Duet works great! :)

That being said, there's no reason you can't run a pair of wires through the whip sleeve to provide the power you need. :)

Re: Replacement Carriages

If the carriage is rocking, it's not due to any tolerance issue - you might have a broken carriage. That's the only way they're going to move in a way they shouldn't. The screw bosses can break over time if the carriage was slightly misaligned when it was screwed together - that's happened on two of...

Re: Silencing The noise

The probe in the HE280 isn't compatible with the DuetWifi. You can either get the Duet3D SmartEffector or the SeeMeCNC SE300 if you want good auto-cal with the DuetWifi.

There's no real spot for that on the HE280 - no "accessory" power is available there.

Re: Filament Feeding Problem

Possible causes are printing too fast for the extruder temp, extruder temp too cold, jammed hot end. Google "cold pull pla" for instructions on how to clear typical filament jams.

I would suggest that you wipe the SD card and copy the data you downloaded from the git repository again.

This is something you should have already tried.

Re: Filiment stuck at hotend

It's also possible that the hot end is blocked by foreign debris - I've seen instances where metal particles, tiny ball bearings, etc. have been found in some of the cheaper filament brands.

Re: Replacement Carriages

The dampers are going to be moving just a little bit and that's what is causing the ghosting. If you've got a DuetWifi, you don't need them as the Trinamic stepper drivers on the DuetWifi are incredibly quiet. They even quieted down my v1 and the case on that thing is damn near a bongo drum. :)
