Re: random retracting with Octoprint

The problem is absolute extrusion. Add a G92 E0 to your start G code, or better yet, configure your slicer (and printer), for relative extrusion.

Re: New Rostock Max V3! Let the Calibrations Begin

So for the strings, my first concern was temperature, but dropping it from 210 to 190 showed no appreciable difference. I printed a benchy, and while I've cleaned most of the strings off, there are plenty of z axis jump loops, so I thought maybe the issue was overextrusion. I am using the stock con...

Re: Thermistor Resting Value Incorrect

So, Thermistors aren't particularly linear. If adjusted to be nearly correct at room temperatures, the beta value throws it way off at printing temps, as there's only so much of a basket where they are accurate (Using the equipment that is available at reasonable prices). If you insist on perfectly ...

Re: BerdAir comeing soon From Yellow Jacket Concepts

Has anyone tried this mount option yet? I am having a hard time figuring out how it will mount. http://repables.com/r/722/ It's designed not so much for the 713 effector, as for the 713 hotend mount. It goes above the lock ring, and one side is notched to go over the strain relief. It probably woul...

Workshop Upgrade!

A lot of people here have probably read about my various machines, and seen at least a bit of my workshop. But with the third CNC machine coming online (a 1M X-carve, on a 5 foot square table), space has been getting tight, and our old layout was really showing it's age, and lack of planning. So.......

Re: Well Done SeeMeCNC

From my experience, the most likely failure point is likely the PEEK fan. These small diameter fans are largely cheap, with crappy bearings, and no one lubes them every six months (Which is impossible on some of the fans). It's either going to be that, or a heating resistor.

Home depot has similar stuff, although it's almost always coated with plastic (Which you will have to remove). You might also try a dedicated electronics parts store, if you can find one.

Re: Determining unknown nozzle bore size.

Optical comparator? If it's a 1mm nominal, it is likely to be slightly undersized, as well as tri-lateral. Perhaps get a 1mm reamer like this , and see what you get after that. Don't try using a typical drill for "precision" work. If you need it more accurate than ±5%, use a reamer or bori...

Re: Thermal Fuse blowing 2x row

If the fan is not running correctly, this can contribute to the fuse failing. In addition, the thermistor may be off-profile, making the print head hotter than you expect (Although it shouldn't be getting quite to the ~280C operating ceiling). I would double check your fan performance and that the h...

Re: Adventures in Noise Slaying

If you're planning on a Duet, I would suggest an E3D hotend (The Prometheus is also an option, but a less generally supported one, and with the cartridge thermistors, I would say the E3D wins a lot on ease of use), instead of the HE280, since the probe on it isn't fully supported. I also would if yo...

Re: Hi there, new to this whole gig, from Australia.

To clarify, the threads themselves are bisected, or the holes are? In either case, if DSM supports boolean operations (I've not used it), you should be able to create a threaded component and subtract that from the main body to create the threads. If not, Fusion 360 (It's free) will do this. However...

It's quite bizarre. Does it start heating as soon as the printer does? Or does it have to be starting a print for it to do this? Perhaps it's a MOSFET going, or it may be the PID drive Min.

The very latest firmware can be found on Seemecnc's github, here. You'll need to use the Arduino IDE to wipe the old firmware (Clear eeprom sketch), then configure and load the new firmware (Select the proper printer number for your H2 then upload).
