Re: Dead board??

You can't visually inspect a fuse. They can lose continuity with a break that isn't visible to the naked (or even aided) eye.

If you're talking about Slic3r, the fan speed settings work with the other cooling settings. Not sure how many of these make it into the MatterControl interface, but they're all there if you download from slic3r.org: The full fan logic for parts of the print that are neither first X layers nor bridg...

Re: Poor layer quality on multi-part prints

It's the axis steps per mm that shouldn't change from 80. Extruder steps per mm should be determined experimentally during calibration because there are many variables. 80 should not be correct for the extruder, which should be calibrated experimentally. You probably have problems elsewhere that hap...

Re: Duet WiFi with E3V6 dragging on plate

Dragging lightly across the build plate sounds perfect if you're at Z=0. Other than the probing, a real print will never command the nozzle closer to the bed than the first-layer height.

Re: Layers shifting to the Z tower

More likely than X and Y both skipping the same amount is a problem with Z. Which way it shifts will also depend on whether the cheapskate is trying to go up or down when it doesn't.

Re: Upgraded E3Dv6 hot end not heating above 247C

To understand the issue, we really need something more specific than "not heating above..."

Is it rejecting the setpoint and failing back to a 247 setpoint? Or is it accepting the setpoint and just not succeeding in reaching it?

Re: Rostock Doesn't Home After Printing w/ Cura - Pic

G-code flavor is correct if you have the stock electronics.

How are you loading the gcode to the machine? I found the upload function in Repetier Host had a couple of checkboxes for including start and end gcode that I have to clear to keep it from doing goofy things.

Re: RostockV2 hot end won't heat past 145C

It's not a wrong resistor issue. These same resistors were working correctly before. Something has gone wrong.

The hot end in question is the stock v2 hot end. I don't see that you've ever said what machine you have but it would probably be a downgrade.

Re: RostockV2 hot end won't heat past 145C

It does sound like the increased resistance just isn't letting enough current through to overcome the heat loss to the atmosphere and pass 145. I'd check resistance at the resistor leads to rule out a problem with the wiring going down to the board. Check the leads of one resistor and the leads of t...

Re: setting up Slic3r for dual extrusion with shared hotend

Your question at the RepRap forums is a lot more specific and thus possible to answer. I am still using 1.2.9, but I would expect the dev version hasn't changed in this respect. If you hover over the Start GCode field, one of the notes is (paraphrased) that including M104 commands in your start gcod...

Everything that happens after it "suddenly freaks out" is because the effector is no longer where the electronics think it is. Deltas do goofy things when they don't know where in the build volume they are. What slicer are you using? I have read something about Simplify3D making excessive ...

The tricky thing about intermittent electrical issues is that they're intermittent.

Re: def has started to appear frequently destroying prints

That's useful info. High temperature is low resistance. You're probably looking for someplace that's not insulated properly and shorting out. Could be the thermistor itself or anywhere the two wires to the thermistor could touch each other.

Re: def has started to appear frequently destroying prints

If the temperatures are jumping abruptly up and down you have a thermistor wiring problem. If it's going smoothly, check wiring, drive voltage, and PID.

Re: Squishy handle.???

The cooling settings have a minimum speed, so as cross-sections get very small like that, the print speed stops slowing down and you still deposit plastic on plastic that's still molten. You need to kill some time. Printing a second copy of the part or a column spaced far enough away for a significa...

I've never used KISSlicer, but you have to change it to actually use the coordinates you want to use.

That dip happens too quickly to be a real dip. I'm still saying thermistor wiring problem, which can also produce the noisy region and the sudden jump back up over the setpoint when clean contact is restored.

Re: Possessed Printer

The noise, decouples, and some of the print quality issues will probably be because of an intermittent connection somewhere in one or both of the thermistor circuits. That needs to be fixed.

To opine on the printed part it would help to know what it was supposed to look like.

Re: What happened??

Every time it starts building the part in a different plane, it's losing track of where it is. This can happen if a belt or gear slips or if the nozzle catches on something and causes a motor to skip.
