Re: HE280 I2c and end-stop issues

Can you take a quick picture of your electronics bay and upload a copy of the firmware you upgraded the rambo to? just looking at the issues quickly though: 1) Not seen it before, but it may be there's an errored I2C initialization hanging the boot sequence. Can you hang a listener on the COM port t...

Re: It's been a long time, need a little direction

Sorry about the delay. perhaps viewtopic.php?f=111&t=9299&start=325&hilit=duet+setup ?

Otherwise, I have a config for my modded V2 (E3D w/ PT100 sensors, Bondtech extruder, FSRs, etc), that I could potentially clean up for you.

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.

Re: Temp Undefined, possible broken heater for HE280

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...

Re: Temp Undefined, possible broken heater for HE280

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...

It looks like you're not getting sufficient cooling for it to stay together, and is thus picking plastic back up, then redepositing it elsewhere as zits, or the PETG is too hot and dribbling out uncontrolled

Re: Temp Undefined, possible broken heater for HE280

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 ...

Re: Rostock Max v3 Stops Moving after a while

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)

Re: Tech Support Needed on Z-Probe Always Triggered

If you disconnect the strain gauge completely at the hotend do you see any change? Similarly, do you see any change if the Z-probe cable is disconnected from the board? Does the cable have continuity from end to end, and when unplugged, is there continuity between pairs? I hope support gets back to ...

Re: Extrusion problems with your HE280 equipped printer? READ ME!

That's a PID issue. I believe it's that the I term is incorrect, leaving an offset in the final temperature (It's either I or D. I just deal with PID so infrequently that I forget which one in specific it is)

Re: Stepper motors just stopped working?

I do believe Geneb mentioned checking it earlier in the thread, but the issue with a loose connection is that it can be intermittent. It's also a bit surprising that it didn't kick something back in octopi, as that should have prevented the board from powering on.

You could always set the startup temperature for the duet to be your higher temperature, or potentially see if adding another M109 helps at all.

Re: heat break stuck

That is potentially due to debris on the end of the heat break or nozzle preventing the two from butting together tightly, or possibly just them not being torqued together well. The two should create a metal on metal seal, preventing any molten plastic from escaping.

I suspect it's a combination of the facebook group, less interest in enthusiast 3D printing (trends indicate that consumer, meaning plug and play, and industrial, are both up quite a bit), and a series of new models pushing older folks out of the forum. After all, despite there being numerous V1's o...

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)

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.

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...
