Re: Quiet down the fan in the base?

I'm usually browsing the forums daily(but Geneb gets to questions faster than I do, thanks to my awful schedule). Are you using any bed prep or material beyond clean bare glass? Any specific brand of PLA you're using, and has it been open long? (I got some bad warping with the spools from my little ...

Re: Vertical dimension calibration PROBLEM for Rostock max V2

And is your part something like 20% too tall? The steps per MM should be 80, or very close. Any other value is either a result of mechanical modifications, or serious mechanical issues. Are you sure that you aren't using the arm length for a different set of arms (a bit confusingly, there's a few op...

What's your steps per mm set to? That's the only thing that should affect vertical scaling.

Are you sure that your points are correct? that sharp edge downwards suggests there's something wrong with the Z-probe (or another inconsistent factor)

Can you check with a 100k resistor and a lower value one as well? I can also potentially send you one that is working (it boots, and is stable), but had an issue with the reset switch having died causing it to boot-loop, and it got replaced with a Duet before I had time to troubleshoot it. I wouldn'...

Re: Rostock MAX v3.2 reviews

The barrier to getting an affordable printer with a heated chamber is patents. Until the patents that Stratasys (and probably 3D Systems) expire, there's no legal way for companies like SeeMeCNC to offer a heated chamber - Stratasys certainly isn't going to license the patents to a competitor. Even...

Re: Rostock MAX v3.2 reviews

From my perspective, as the owner of effectively a Rostock max 2.2 (Duet, auto-leveling, and all the other fancy stuff I wanted), the 3.2 is a really nice machine, since it eliminates the need for something like 500$ worth of upgrades I've done (~100$ total in FSR system, ~175-200 in the duet, ~100$...

Re: Stop during Calibration

EEPROM isn't largely about connections. It's storing configuration information (In your case, Z height, is what we care about), which while it includes the connection settings, is mostly printer calibration data. Try options, EEPROM settings. You may want to use Show Terminal first, so that you can ...

That sounds like a bad z-height setting. You should try to use something like Mattercontrol to edit the EEPROM parameter for Z-height.

Re: Stop during Calibration

It sounds like an intermittent connection in the hotend whip or connector is causing the printer to reset. Are the wires tight, and when you did the upgrade, did you replace the wires going to hotend? Alternatively, if it's just that it locks up when probing, and not manually, perhaps the code to ac...

Re: 091 Firmware pause for filament out

If you don't change the EEPROM mode, it may carry over without issue. You could also edit the EEPROM after flashing, as the last value checked will be stored there, and the EEPROM is what the firmware checks once on the board for operating parameters. Is there a reason not to upgrade the arms and ot...

Re: 3d model slicer software

Netfabb is pretty easy. I've attached the archived free installer (since pulled from the website, but it should still work). I've done some stuff with it, as well as using Maya and Fusion 360 for similar tasks, but Netfabb is way easier to just split things.

If you are indeed getting 12v across the fuse, then yes, it's an issue with the fuse. Fuses aren't always visibly blown, especially ceramic and thermal fuses. As for 1, well, if you look at your picture, the knob should be on the left side, underneath the V adjust I think you're still confused a bit...

If by heater, you mean the thing on the hotend that wires go into, there shouldn't be anything like that. If you're referring to a metal box with a bunch of wires, unless you live in Europe, or somewhere else with 230V power, no, don't flip the switch. In either case, take a picture of what you mean...

Depends on if you go based on resistance or voltage, as well as your criteria for acceptable versus bad. It's pretty unlikely that you wouldn't have at least a volt of drop across a blown fuse, no matter what sort of leakage you got from other electronics, and anything beyond 100 mV at these low of ...

IIRC, the Duet Maestro is a cut down version of the Duet board family meant mostly for larger OEM's to integrate it into more price sensitive printers (IE, fewer drivers, less expansion, but same web interface and computational capacity we know and love)
