Re: Pueblo, CO Entrepreneurs using Rostock Max

Thanks for noticing and taking the time to post. The cast/splint is my wife's brainchild and her business partner is a golfer who wanted a training aid for his own use (that is my wife and her business partner in the video). It got noticed on the practice greens and has blossomed from there. I'm the...

Re: MuggsMAX

Certainly not on the same plane as killing a board but I had a 12V fan die pretty quickly on a 24V power supply. It was the cooling fan on an E3D hot end so it caused a few other problems.

Re: First Print...Nozzle Clogging?

You may also try drying your filament. Search and you will find the correct oven temps and times. If you are getting steam in the hot end it could mess with the pressure enough to have the extruder chew a notch in the filament to the point it no longer has anything to grab ahold of in there. I have ...

Too much current, a bad resistor, damage either before or during installation... could be many things. Grab your trusty multimeter and check resistances across both.

Re: Spring mounting thermistor

Thanks Dan, I also picked up some pc-fahrenheit epoxy. m Would this be suitable to keep it in place in the existing hole? That stuff is intended for emergency repairs and running at temperature extremes above 176C will shorten the surface life of the repair. (paraphrased from their website) You'll ...

Re: Spring mounting thermistor

I think you are going to have a tough time making the existing hole deeper without damaging the threads you have already cut. If it were me, I would drill a new hole in the heater block. Tape off the drill but so you don't go through but get the correct depth. If you're using the spring as a screw i...

Re: Another Error!!!

I just took a look at your other thread on first layer issues. Combined with this one it very well could be overextrusion. Raising your Z height would just help mask an overextrusion issue by giving it someplace to go. Believe Doc Hackney has some tips in one of his sticky posts that include dialing...

Agreed. The connectors aren't wired correctly. Pretty sure you're supposed to have pins in positions 1 and 2 on the connectors.

Re: EZStruder spring?

Probably not much help but some local hardware stores in my area have drawers full of springs. If the one you have isn't damaged too badly just take it with you and look for a replacement.

Re: Help with e3d v6 install

The stock v091 appears to have all of the safet recommendations already set so the only change is is the thermistor type. That seemed awefully easy which makes me think I missed something.

A couple of other settings you can play with are the retract and wipe. Both could play into the blobs and strings. Funny Nylocke, I always associate stringing with higher temps...

That 468 tape may be the gooiest crap I've worked with in a long time. My roll was sticking along one edge so I ended up with a clump and didn't see it until I put the tape on the glass.

Is there a reason not to run it directly to the power connector and just let it run when the printer is on? That way you don't have to remember to turn the layer fan on.

Re: Peek fan not spinning

Bad RAMBo or firmware are the first thoughts that come to mind but I'm not great on that end. In the interim you could run the fan directly to another 12V source so that it would run whenever the power supply is on. I would probably start by reflashing the firmware and seeing if that helps.
