Rostock Max stops during print "Cannot connect to printer"

Any ideas or similar experiences to share? The problem I am seeing is that the printer stops mid-print. If I try the same file it stops at various stages and never in the same place.

Ho Slot Car Body

I think I am asking too much from my Max 2. I drew the body in solidworks so it is a viable stl file. ABS, 2mm layer height.

You certainly can. It looks like you can buy the printed parts for $40 at their store but make 'em yourself.

What is the true bed size, or most commonly used for the largest bed size? I just completed my Max about 3 weeks ago and had the same question. I use 280 X 280. Great work ...

What is the bed size for Rostock Max 2

Since mattercontrol updated to 1.2.1 file I create in Solidworks are not coming in to scale. I noticed the bed size is 150 x 150 with a build height of 350 (& circular bed). What do you gents using mattercontrol have as a bed size?

Re: Help Needed! - New Build: Power Issues Part 2

If you cut your main atx connector off be sure that you connect the brown wire to any orange wire. It is needed to prevent the issue I noticed in the 1st line above. JJ at SeeMeCNC alerted me to this and now all is well.

I opened up the power supply and found some bridging across the ac input contacts. I cleaned this up and separated all the component leads that seemed to be touching. The p/s still will not stay on.
