Re: 24V: The other way

I love my 24V upgrade (http://forum.seemecnc.com/viewtopic.php?f=42&t=7303&start=125#p86387). Bed heats from room temp to 100 degrees in just under 3 min. Once at temp it is money stable with the SSR and calibration. Without a question a great upgrade. I do worry about fires? Yes!! Thus as m...

Also agree with Xenocrates...... A Duet is the way to go!!!

Re: Newbie From San Antonio Texas - Rostock Max V3 Upgrade Suggestions

Just to make sure I got this correct. Use a series of these thermal breakers which are placed in selected places in my printer (I.e. Bed, Meanwell, SSR, above the print head and etc). The current through the thermal breaks will engage the Form 2 relay with 12v from my 24V-to12V converter. The load s...

Re: Newbie From San Antonio Texas - Rostock Max V3 Upgrade Suggestions

25A contactor and thermal fuse on the bed: Especially if you intend to use a 24V power supply, adding a safety relay in case a MOSFET or the SSR fails on is only good sense. This brings it inline with the hotend, making this a very safe printer, as it should have no heating elements capable of ther...

Re: Filament Storage Processes

I also use 5 gallon buckets with a sealed lid with desiccant. This has worked well for ABS and the few other types that I have on hand.

Here is the Lid I use which will snap onto any standard 5 gallon. Gamma Seal Lid - White (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007KAY4S2/re ... kzbWVW9C8A)

Re: Duet setup - instructions in progress

I found when I used Bang-Bang my bed temperature and fluctuations were huge. Since I optimized my PID settings the bed is money on and stable with the temp I set. Solved many of the above mentioned problems. Her is a link detailing what I did which was earlier in this Thread (http://forum.seemecnc.c...

Re: PEI is amazing!

I put the heat spreader under the glass and then used the 468 to adhear the PEI to the glass. I have had no issues with lifting of the PEI off the glass and am still in my original PEI sheet 18 months later.

Awesome. the shield wipe is interesting...... I have never been able to get MC and MS to work since they do not allow selection of relative vs. absolute extrusion. How have you set this in MC/MS?

I added a 6mm retraction with each tool change which is better. However, not sure why yet (need to look at the g-code) but my green retracted back and unloaded.... thus the smoke stack did not print!!!??

Re: Duet and Multi-Color/Multi-Filament Extrusion

After looking at this g.code again I do think that the noted retraction is appropriate. This because the next movements do not extrude.

I will still insert an additional retraction with a tool change and see what happens.

I checked the g.code of the print (copied below) and you can see that here is no retraction when there is a tool/color change (Noted by the T1 command.
