Re: Stock MAX v1 upgrade path

Personally, I would replace the carriages, arms, tube connector, and hotend liner. It gets you a lot of the benefits of the V3, while keeping your hotend the same so you don't need to redo all your profiles. In addition, the HE280 wants the rail style power supply, which would be a pain to put in a ...

Re: I'm Jumping Into The 3D Printing World! Need Advice!

Tin foil is indeed aluminum foil. If it were actual tin, it would not be as useful since it would have lower thermal conductivity. The suitable DC SSR is the 100A one (Yes, it is very oversized, but the others are undersized). With the low on resistance it exhibits, there's minimal power loss to it,...

Re: Shift in layers/ voltage fluctuation

No, and probably. There are many possibilities on why the layers are shifting. If it's a very consistent shift, then it is very possible you have a flat spot on the wheels that hasn't rolled out, or damage on the bearing surface of the rail, or some other mechanical issue. If it's random, it is more...

Re: I'm Jumping Into The 3D Printing World! Need Advice!

The diameter is indeed 1.75 mm. Mattercontrol sometimes, but it's not a great slicer (slic3r prusa edition or kiss are much better, but may be harder to start with). Some other things to buy: tinfoil for a heatspreader, a roll of both pla and abs, and in my opinion, an auber DC-dc solid state relay ...

Re: Shift in layers/ voltage fluctuation

The answer has to do with the design of the regulation circuitry in the power supply. For some time, given that a load on 5V was expected at all times the computer was on (And still is, as both the CPU and hard-drives, as well as any USB systems will pull on it), they designed using an architecture ...

Re: Which upgrades to buy

Here are my opinions on upgrades almost any machine could use, with some options for each one. I'm not pricing out the best option, since it's difficult, and if you want that, you may need more research.

Re: Cnc coolant mist

We use a water based coolant that we get as a concentrate in the lab at the college. One of it's major corrosion/biological inhibitors (Since it does both), is honey.

Re: Can''t find spares

There is the HE280 which can be bought pre-assembled as a unit to snap in (If you have the ball cup arms, which IIRC, you do). It can use E3D nozzles reasonably, allowing you to buy UK and re-use the nozzles from your V6. It also in theory adds auto-calibration (This can take some effort to get set ...

Re: LCD reset when heating hot end

It won't entirely fit. For instance, the I2C connector on the Rambo is omitted on the mini-Rambo, however the pins are exposed, and this is used in the ERIS. I would suggest if you do use the mini-rambo, I suggest you use the pin assignments from the eris to cross-check yours as you switch. You'll n...

Sky, if you're still stuck with Amazon as your main reserve of cash, you'd be best served with Rambo, but the Mini rambo will do almost everything the Rambo does, however, I am not sure on how much of the pinout is identical. I do know it doesn't properly support dual extrusion. As far as I know, al...

Nice to see you back. I really liked the V3DR, and have been pointing it out to people and slowly plotting to print one for a print Lab at the college, so that people could see a Delta style machine instead of just Cartesians.

Re: mhackney's Real V3 Build Thread

It's at least similar, however the issue would be just how much is in the base of a V2 (I don't even want to think about trying that on mine), I suppose that especially on the rail supply ones, that the leftward side has some space for it, but if you put an SSR and control relay in, you lose a lot o...

On the face of it, I'd suspect power sag - does it happen when only heating the hot end and not the bed, or only when heating the hot end and the bed? g. Geneb, we've already gone over the bed+ hotend or just hotend thing. It is a hotend issue, as apparently the bed doesn't matter. I might try watc...

Re: PLEASE HELP!! - Still not able to print on the full build surface after 3 years!

So, inconsistent thickness in the outlines. Where on the printer? Across from the towers, next to them, as you move farther out from the center, just randomly? If it's in relation to the tower, it is likely an endstop offset issue. I would use something like the attached spreadsheet instead of the s...

Re: Rostock Max V3 Build with minor mods

I'm going to suggest you talk with SeeMeCNC support about it. If it really is the pot, that's one thing, but the rest could be failing as well, and if you desoldering and replace it, it's much less likely seeme will replace it, and letting them know that an issue exists is important.

If they started as two different sketches that were saved separately (AKA designs), you need to use the component mode on the move tool (Which I mostly find annoying). If you want to move the extruded 3D objects, move body. Otherwise move sketch (I cannot think of a lot of justifications for move fa...

If you use the delta calibration a lot (I don't at all, like Joe I haven't had to recalibrate in months), I might suggest Octoprint.
