Re: HO Scale Passenger Car

Really cool looking. Fortunately for me, my preferred scale for trains is a bit smaller, so while I can't do cool detailed builds like that, they are faster to print, and a bit less work (I like N-scale, since it fits with some of my wargaming stuff)

Re: Bed enlargement

This would take a lot of changes, actually. Longer arms, higher resolution steppers (to reduce the effects of the increased movement magnitude from the longer arms), more torque to hold the arms up, much longer towers (Each mm you increase the arm length by reduces the height of the top of the dome ...

Re: Bed Adhesion Issue

It's quite possible that you have a draft, or colder air where you are now, that is causing at least some of the increased warping. An enclosure (Box, cabinet, or even a dedicated set of panels actually attached to the printer), may help, as would heating it (for the ABS). A slight increase in extru...

It looks like I can make you the part, and ship it for not too bad a price (UPS says ~13$ to ship it). However, I don't have double sided melamine around, and haven't been able to source any I can actually get. I do have single sided melamine, but it seems to be less heat resistant that Seeme's.

Re: MatterControl 1.6 extruder controls temp 5 degrees too high

Try adjusting your I-gain, and see if that affects your offset. Autotuned PID loops are not perfect, and some amount of hand adjustment is often helpful. Try some drastic changes with it, halving and doubling, to see what direction you need to go in, then fine tune. This should also reduce your over...

Re: Question about temperature 'def'

Def can also mean that it believes the temperature is decoupled, meaning that it's pumping in more heater power, and not seeing a temperature response. So if you have the center of the bed uncovered (where the thermistor is), and fans blowing, the thermistor can lose heat rapidly, and cause a decoup...

Re: V2 (mid 2016) to V3.2 (current) upgrade?

IIRC, the V3 has you remove the flaps, and has it lined up such that they endstop screws hit the actuator directly. I've only had a little hands on time with a V3 though, so i'm not entirely sure. You could also use optical endstops. I think it shouldn't break them often though. Mine have managed to...

Re: Duet Ethernet and 7" screen how to get it to work?

It's connecting properly from the looks of it (at least in the first screen shot). Since you have no hardware connected, such as thermistors, endstops, etc, and don't seem to have a password or custom name defined, it's not really doing anything, but it's connected.

Re: heat break stuck

I'm not personally familar with the Se300 hotend, but it seems that the heat break, at least the one you got, is rather similar to an E3D clone from amazon. Can you extract the PTFE, and see if it's warped at all, as well as checking it's length against the heatbreak itself? There is also a chance t...

Nope. What you've done is set the IP for the mac to the IP of the duet. Think of it like a mailing address. You've told the mac and the duet they are both the same address. Instead, you should have the mac set to a different IP address in the network window. Don't touch the Duet currently, and chang...

Re: Duet Ethernet and 7" screen how to get it to work?

One thing you need to understand is that using a print host to change settings does not save those settings. The config.g is parsed at every startup, and then the configoverride.g is parsed. If you do not save your changes (There is a G code to do it, but manually editing and saving is probably easi...

Re: V2 (mid 2016) to V3.2 (current) upgrade?

I've taken something close to it, with having a duet in the bottom of a v2 frame. The .9 motors aren't needed to make it work really well, but they do give better resolution, and unlike the stock controller, the duet can run at a step rate to fully make use of the .9 motors. What you may want to do ...

Likely with the V3 to V3.2 upgrade kit, and the designs from repables, you'll have a pretty darn solid machine. The V3 frame is quite nice, but the V2 is still pretty solid (after all, a bunch of us manage to make pretty good parts on V2s, and Gene and a few others still keep V1's in working trim (I...

Re: V2 (mid 2016) to V3.2 (current) upgrade?

Those instructions won't cover everything. The V2 doesn't have the same frame setup as the V3, nor does it have mounting holes for the Duet, whip, etc. If you want that, you'll need a V3 frame kit, which goes for 270. If you don't want to change the hole frame, you can use a duet mount for the V2 fr...

I'm going to mostly agree with IMboring. Now, you can buy quieter fans, such as Noctua or Silenx (Little bit pricy, especially on the small diameter fans.) 2) It should only activate when the hotend is above 45C by default (if it's connected to fan1) Try M106 P1 T75, where 75 (AKA, whatever number f...

Re: Ugly outline perimeters

I suspect it's partially that the speed is too high, and also that either the belts are not tight enough, or that there is backlash or slop somewhere in the setup. Make sure that your hotend is tightly connected to the effector, that the bed is not shifting, and that the carriages are in good shape.
