Re: No joy with browser connection

My approach was to purchase an access point so the printer would have a dedicated network and thus not have to compete with DHCP (the router assigning IP addresses to devices). Adding an access point is meaningfull if your wifi signal is too low, but that does not seem to be the case here. Adding a...

Re: No joy with browser connection

I shut down Artemis and still got a reply from pinging 10.0.0.232 so it looks like a DHCP issue. However, I don't know which machine is using 10.0.0.232 so I can't change it on that end. Is there a way to set a static IP address on Artemis?. Find these lines in your onfig.g and change them (and unc...

Re: Ball-cup arm clearance from print bed?

Haha yes, I noticed that too ;-) The instructions are not really incorrect, because it works, doesn't it? But When I was doing this upgrade I found that the arms being so close to the bed were an obstruction for checking out how the print goes, so I thought of bringing them to the above side myself,...

Re: Max V2 Upgraded arms

I don't know if it matters much, but I would put those bands on the upper and lower ends instead of in the middle. In the middle they will bend the arms a bit, or you wil have to loosen them that much that it doesn't help reduce the slop anymore.

Re: MetalMax Delta printer - belt catching on new linear rail - need advice please

Yes, I do not see why that would not work. You will probably need a similar construction at the bottom of each tower. That could interfere with how low your carriages can go, and therefore pose a limit to the max printable diameter. But for the rest it looks okay I think.

Re: Ziro brand ABS filament - Not recommended

Temps are: Bed: 110C, hotend: 220C I am not familiar with this brand at all, but I think sticking with this temp and expecting the same results as any other brand is not the way to go. You will need to explore more combinations of temperatures. Your spool could suddenly become a highly recommended ...

Re: Rostock Max v3 calibrating script.

I don't think the code will fit a a standard Rambo board like the ones are still uses until today, so No, it wil not. There are rumours about a new 32 bit Rambo, that will probably do have built in calibration, why else create a new board? But on the other hand I saw the popular Duet boards in the p...

Re: PEI print bed surface experiments

Looking at the specifications (and safety warnings!) of this JBWeld product, it would make sense for it to be working great for glueing PEI. However I think I remember more people having tried it. It seems to loosen over time. The 3M glue sheets work fine, just apply dry. Because the glass and the P...

Re: Brand New Rostock v3 build stringing/oozing

I would try going significantly lower in temp. The clearity of your printed part makes me think the temp is rather high. Usually the clear filament turns more opaque white'ish after printing. Try a thermocouple to see what temp you are "actually" printing, and calibrate your thermister set...

Depends on what you want really. I am not familiar with the BLTouch, but know that Repetier does not really do any auto calibration (besides the SeeMe branch that only supports the Boink-a-Probe Caliwhacker (not my invention!) ;-) The best way to do calibrations is using the tip of the nozzle as pro...

Re: Artifacts on high prints

With the printer turned off, slide each of the carriages slowly up and down the towers. Can you feel some irregularities in how smooth they slide perhaps?

Re: PCB smart effector and carriage adapters for Haydn Huntley's rods

I don't understand why these would be restricted to Haydn Huntley's magnetic rods and ball studs. I think it would not be a lot of work to fit the SeeMe barballs to the carriages. The idea of the tip of your hotend being the probe is appealing. FSR's do that, but introduce some error margin due to b...

Re: High strength filament recommendations?

Unless you need food safety, use the hardened steel. It has a better heat transfer coefficient (typically, there are so many kinds of steel that I could find you a hardened one with a worse one than a stainless, but E3D wouldn't have done that), and it is more wear resistant and cheaper.

You should use a steel nozzle, it is abrasive and will wear out a brass nozzle quickly.

Would you advise hardened steel or stainless steel (which is also very wear resistent probably?)
