Re: PETG printing errors

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.

Re: Print starting before Hotend heats

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)

Re: Bed Adhesion Issue

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. An enclosure (Box, cabinet, or even a dedicated set of panels actually attached to the printer), may help, as would heating it (for the ABS). A slight increase in extru...

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...

Re: Question about temperature 'def'

Def can also mean that it believes the temperature is decoupled, meaning that it's pumping in more heater power, and not seeing a temperature response. So if you have the center of the bed uncovered (where the thermistor is), and fans blowing, the thermistor can lose heat rapidly, and cause a decoup...

IIRC, the V3 has you remove the flaps, and has it lined up such that they endstop screws hit the actuator directly. I've only had a little hands on time with a V3 though, so i'm not entirely sure. You could also use optical endstops. I think it shouldn't break them often though. Mine have managed to...

Re: Duet Ethernet and 7" screen how to get it to work?

It's connecting properly from the looks of it (at least in the first screen shot). Since you have no hardware connected, such as thermistors, endstops, etc, and don't seem to have a password or custom name defined, it's not really doing anything, but it's connected.

Nope. What you've done is set the IP for the mac to the IP of the duet. Think of it like a mailing address. You've told the mac and the duet they are both the same address.

One thing you need to understand is that using a print host to change settings does not save those settings. The config.g is parsed at every startup, and then the configoverride.g is parsed. If you do not save your changes (There is a G code to do it, but manually editing and saving is probably easi...
