Re: Trick Laser MAX METAL Build

Q, if you've got a CNC mill to do the basic work, it's far easier to do it all in the CNC. You'd just need ~3 sets of vices. First would be the roughing, which would drill locating details and threads to retain it to a jig plate for the second operation, which would cut the outer perimeter, and roug...

Re: Heated Bed won't shut off Rostock V3

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.

Re: delta h2 lcd display shows blank, little white squares...

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).

Re: Upgrade time!

I've owned the v3 since Jan and this is my first experience with 3D printing and slicing, 3 months later I upgraded to Bondtech QR, E3D v6, CF arms, FSR and custom mount with heat spreader, and Berd Air v2. Spent 10+ hours a day troubleshooting and learning. If anyone rushed to upgrade I definitely...

Re: delta h2 lcd display shows blank, little white squares...

First thing: the white squares may be because the firmware is improperly loaded, because the connectors are reversed to the LCD, or because of a contrast issue. With mattercontrol not connecting, I would erase and reload the firmware as a first step. Once that's done, check to see if MC connects wit...

Re: SSR keeps blowing on 24V Heated bed

In theory, any relay has a limited life span. however, the solid state ones have a very long cycle life. I would not be worried as they were developed for industrial use with PID loops, which means the same sorts of switching rates we use. I think the big problem is almost all the SSR's on amazon an...

Re: Changing the Hot End?

With a Rambo, I would use the HE280 accel board. With a duet or smoothieboard, I would suggest a Yellowjacket quick change board with either FSR's under the bed (So you only need one set of sensors), or an IR probe board.

Re: Changing the Hot End?

All things considered, I would recomend you buy a new effector+ball joint set with the hotend, and either a compatible socket or another accel board, so you can swap them out, as the E3D and the like have slightly more issues with PLA than the HE280 from my understanding (It's a small difference).

Re: KISS multiple copy bug?

If you load sliced g code into mattercontrol or cura, it should show the path as written in the code. I also know that several Android programs to do the same. I also have used other applications meant for cam, but they work terribly for this since they think subtractive.

Re: Problem with EZR Struder

I believe that in general, an M3 grub screw is sufficient. Assuming a class 12.9 grub screw (The ones I source are 14.9, so stronger yet), the proof yield is 970 Mpa, or 828 pounds of force (Assuming an area of 3.8, which is below what the specifications allow for minor diameter). The minimum yield ...

Re: Adhesion and general bed problems-Max V3

First problem: You have unmatched endstop offsets. These can be tuned in software, or the screws can be adjusted (I think). You should also be able to use the bed compensation wizard on Seeme's website, or in Octoprint. Second issue: If you want to use a cold bed, I suggest something more like PEI o...

Re: Duet Wifi

The better circles come out of having the calculations done for each step, to ensure that you're getting all the possible precision, rather than each move being cut up into small lines, and assumed to be close enough. I don't have a whole lot of the math to describe it, but while the slicer controls...

Re: Wantai .9 Degree Stepper wiring

Easy method. Short a pair of wires on it together, then try spinning it. If it resists more, that's a pair. If not, try another. Once you have a pair, the remaining wires are the other pair. Pairs go next to each other in the connector, If it goes the wrong way, swap the pairs or reverse it in firmw...

Re: Duet Wifi

The first obvious feature in all the duet boards is that they have non-segmented moves, meaning motion is continuously calculated, so you can achieve something much closer to an actual circle (As the motors have distinct steps, it isn't perfect, but it is below human resolution for the most part).

First thing: Aluminum/copper foil or sheet. Two layers or so of heavy duty foil starts making an impact on temperature evenness. I personally use an AL plate, either 1/8th with PEI on top, or 1/16th under glass. Copper is better if you can find it, because of a higher thermal conductivity, but it's ...
