Re: Failing Midprint and Corroded Heater

"killed" just means that the idle timer in the RAMBo fired and it disabled the stepper motors. It's normal behavior. Your thermistor lead is right on the edge of being able to short against the heater block - you might want to slide the ptfe tubing up a bit higher on the leads. The oddly c...

If you've updated your machine with the HE280 hot end, you can find good default Cura 3.1 profiles here: https://github.com/seemecnc/slicing-profiles

Re: Artemis - Build Notes

You need to make sure you've got z-lift during retract set. The nozzle will quit striking the part during travel moves. You can set your z-hop to 4mm and the Z travel speed to 500mm/sec. It works great.

I find it very odd that your router is issuing 10.0.0.232. 0 is reserved as the network address and 255 is reserved as the broadcast address - however, that restriction may only be for the last octet in an IPv4 address.

Re: Ball-cup arm clearance from print bed?

It was oriented the way you see in the docs when the update first came out, but changed later on for whatever reason. I suspect it's because the original hot end worked great with it oriented the ball-arms under the platform. Technically, both orientations are correct depending on the hot end used. ...

Your first issue is that you've got the effector platform on upside down. :D The ball posts should be on top.

If memory serves, there's a new effector platform included with the arm kit.

Also, do NOT tin the leads that go into the 8 pin connector. Tinning the leads for a compression or press-fit connector is a recipie(sp!) for disaster.

Re: Artemis - Build Notes

You don't adjust the filament diameter to fix a grinding problem, you either increase the hot end temperature or slow down the print speed. To get a good idea of the filament diameter, pull off a meter or so of filament and measure 10 spots with a digital caliper and average the values out, then wri...

Re: Artemis - Build Notes

FYI, the FSR board isn't sending an analog signal. It translates the FSR changes to a switch event. In the case of the Artemis, the board is configured as normally closed. This helps prevent false triggers due to induced signal noise. No window is needed - you can clearly see the FSR LEDs blinking t...

Re: Calibration for stringing

Stringing doesn't have anything to do with bed level. :) With my configuration, I'm using a 3.5mm retract length at 45mm/sec. When I printed the "firstprint.gcode" file on Saturday, I noticed some very fine stringing in the model, but I attribute that to the higher temp it was set at. I wa...

With my existing Duet conversions, I have a G28 and G32 in the "start" script of the slicer. This homes and calibrates before the print starts. Since the calibration is so quick, it doesn't cost you anything to run it every time. Just make sure you give the nozzle a quick swipe with a clot...

Re: Ros tock V3 heated bed not getting hot enough

Check the voltage output of the power supply when you're heating the bed. It should be ~12v. If it's reading low, there's a little adjustment pot on the power supply (left front I think) that you can use to tweak the output voltage. Also check to make sure that the compression terminals are all prop...
