Re: Is there a better option than the bearing covers

Gotcha, I'm using them on the trick trucks. Just wasn't sure if they would work with the rostock carriages.

I use these, but I don't know if the OD is the same as stock.

Re: Rostock Max w/ He280 Simplify3D settings

I'm not in-front of the software, but you should have an Orgin settings option in the FFF (might be under gcode) . Make sure that's 0,0,0.

Re: K40 Laser Amazon deal (through Vipon)

thanks, I was able to snag one of the $225 ones today. What do you think of it so far? Haven't done much but did a few of the test designs in laser works. I can see the benefit of adding a amp meter and potentiometer. The digital button thingy is a bit wonky. The software has a learning curve but n...

Looks like the $225 one might be sold out. "The seller is no longer offering vouchers." whatever that means.

Re: The Palette (Mosaic Manufacturing)

I would assume any slicer that handles dual+ extrusion would work. But I've only used S3D. The quick and dirty. Slice different parts of the model using a different extruder for each color. (up to 4 colors). This is the same process for any multi color print, for the most part. Pass that gcode into ...

Re: Temperature Calibration?

Have you looked at the gcode by chance? Just to make sure, it's not something goofy in Matter Control.

Can you pre-heat to expected temps via the LCD?


also, when the printer is cold. Does the heated bed and hotend roughly display the same temps?

Re: E3D V6 jamming

I never had luck with large amounts of retract on the E3D-v6. Even their own troubleshooting guide states "Retractions of 5mm or more are troublesome as they pull hot filament up into the cold areas of the hotend where they can freeze, adhere and jam." One thing you can try is to chamfer t...

With my .4mm nozzle, I have coast set to 1mm. ( see attached pic) Don't run with Auto extrusion width, it's garbage. Calibrate with a thin-wall hallow cube and measure the wall thickness to adjust the extrusion multiplier. Your .05 coast on a .8mm nozzle wont do much of anything. Also, again -.02 Ex...

Could be in your coast, wipe, and/or outline overlap %.

I haven't used the mini-rambo at all (or any Rambo in a couple years). Check the endstop switches: Send the M119 command and check each endstop is working for the correct tower. Pull all the carriages away from the endstop switches so nothing is touching. Hold the X tower switch closed with your fin...

Re: Printing reverse of what i view in mattercontrol?

Almost like the steppers are wired backwards, just not sure how that would still home correctly unless the direction was changed.

Check each tower is wired for the correct axis on the controller along with the correct endstop. My guess is the X and Y are switched.
