Quick guide to setting up the ZestyTech nimble on the Rostock MAX V2 or V3

Quick nimble setup guide for those with a Rostock Max V2 or V3 with the RAMBo board. I just went through this, and successfully got it up and running. A few folks helped me do it, so I want to pay it forward. Here is a quick guide. Here is the official documentation http://zestytechnology.readthedoc...

Yep, I made a successful print. I am working on a post that will help others with a rostock max get it up and running.

Re: Zesty Nimble on 713Maker Mount NinjaFlex First Print

Since you got your nimble up and running, maybe you can help me. I'm using the rambo that comes stock on the romax. What setting did you end up using for your micro stepping? And how did you adjust the vref setting? Thanks!

Re: Zesty Nimble extruder technical thread

Good writeup. I didn't find a rostock max in the adapters list though. It looks like they have a V3 "hat" adapter on thingiverse but nothing for the V2. Has anyone made one? Also, there are several cable length options when you go to purchase. I'm assuming 95mm would be appropriate but it'...

Re: BerdAir comeing soon From Yellow Jacket Concepts

I have done this cooling upgrade. I ended up stuffing my pump in the bottom of the Rmax where there is a spare bay. Just popped the side off and in it went. There was already a hole for me to route the tube through. It reduces the noise quite a bit and seems to be getting enough airflow.

This is a fan mount I made that fits between gaps on the platform. It works with 2 fans. Feel free to modify it to your needs.

Re: Ukulele print getting knocked by hot end

If it was over extrusion would it clip even on smaller prints? This only starts printing when the print gets to about 8" high.

Ukulele print getting knocked by hot end

I've been trying to print a ukulele body in 1 piece. Both attempts have failed 3/4 of the way through. The hot end started clipping the edges, and then it hits hard enough to knock the whole thing out of alignment, then it's spaghetti from there. Any thoughts? It did the exact same thing twice.

Re: Some musings on retracts

Great write up, thanks for posting. Do find that z-lift plays a role in retraction considerations? What z-lift setting do you prefer for your rostock max with E3D? Thanks!

Hey bud, I'm in Orange County. I'm by no means an expert, but I did get my machine up and running (also got it from matter hackers)

Re: Zesty Nimble extruder technical thread

It was mentioned that the retraction was not an issue, as the rotational twist is absorbed by the 30:1 gear ratio. I'm curious if the rostock max will require a longer cable and if that increases the rotational twist. Thanks!

Re: Is PEI that good?

I had to sand my PEI since my PLA wouldn't stick to it. I sanded it with 00 steel wool, then wiped with iso. Suddenly my PLA was sticking. It's like magic.

Re: PEI is amazing!

I was having a problem getting PLA to stick to my shiny new thick sheet of PEI. I ordered some 00 steel wool and gave the surface a good rub down. That did the trick. The thick sheet has excellent removal, even now with the extra grip. Hope that helps someone else who runs into the same problem!

Re: PEI is amazing!

Yeah, I came from buildtak as well. So far this thick price of PEI has been a champ! I would recommend getting the thick stuff.
