Re: Onyx Temp Rating

At the range of 150+, I would at very least change out the mellamine snowflake for something else, perhaps https://www.mcmaster.com/#9353k31/=1cyve17 which is theoretically machinable, or garolite/bakelite, which is also machinable, and both are rated as fire retardant. You could potentially also us...

Re: Red Sand's Max V2 Build Thread

Sand, you're pretty darn close. Wiring a V2 relatively stock isn't that bad, and the new parts will only speed up putting the carriages, belts, arms, and hotend together. And so long as you make some progress every time you work on it, you'll eventually get there. I have a friend who had a V3 that s...

Re: Newer Arduino versions that work?

There is actually a precompiled V2 hex here I'll tell you a few good excuses to get a duet board. Network based controls and monitoring. If your printer is in another room (or like me, in an outbuilding), it can be invaluable to be able to to check on it, and you can embed a IP-camera feed into DWC,...

Re: Newer Arduino versions that work?

You could also potentially just upload the hex files for the firmware using the Atmel toolchain, or I believe that Arduino packs along some of the actual programming utilities with their IDE. A pre-compiled blob should work just fine unless Arduino is really messing up their toolchain. That said, if...

Re: Max V2 works, but this connector can't be right

The power connector is replaceable. I believe it's this one. You should get ferrules and a crimper, and install them on the ends of the wires. Do not solder or tin the wires.

Re: Converting MAX v3 to ATX PSU

Thanks for the insights. My opinion would be that it would be easier to change the fan in the existing power supply. I might look into replacing the PSU fan. The problem with doing that is knowing if you still got enough cooling going on. Since the PSU doesn't have any temp readout's there is no wa...

Re: Heat bed fault

Yes, you can test a thermistor with a multimeter. There are a few things to check. Make sure it is not shorting to the edges of the hole, that the solder joints are in good shape, and that the thermistor itself reads approximately 100K at room temperature.

Re: Filament run out monitor

It depends on your use case and failure modes. If slipping is a problem for you, a filament monitor can help a lot. Same with jamming. A simple switch only detects breaks, and running out of filament. Now, for say, a college using cuts off of spools, a switch handles most failure modes I've seen (as...

It sounds like your problem is one of adhesion now, and potentially Z-hop, or some other issue. If you could, check the first layer height in CURA, as well as the Z-hop (Z-lift) settings.

With the web interface open, there should be a box in the upper left corner that has the head position, as well as the Z-probe status (if the Artemis is using stock DWC, which I believe it is). What does it indicate the head position is? Does this change when you home it? what is the Z-probe status,...

Re: Duet Tuning.

It's a combination of the two. The drivers dictate the frequency to a degree, and the build quality can affect the whine from the coils. A Duet with similar drivers to the Rambo (IE a .8.5), won't have much noise improvement, but the newer trinamic drivers that the Wifi and Ethernet use are much qui...

So, with the Rostock max 2, you can take the LCD panel off, then pull the controller mount forward to release it, and if you have slack in the wiring, remove it. Also, of note is that Allegro, and the majority of the SMD stepper drivers, are not designed with a usable thermal interface at the top of...

Easiest upgrade is to an M3 threaded thermistor, such as this one. It's not exactly one I've personally used, but it is from the successor company to the folks who made the ones I've used. Alternatively, get an E3D hotend (or an SE300 or similar from Seeme), so that you can keep nozzles available an...
