Re: Max V2 works, but this connector can't be right

No, that's NOT good. This connector and the way power is divided from one port to the other is a real PITA and asking for trouble. It works however fine if you make it a habit to check the screws every now and then. Personally I would lay off the twisted ATX threads to a bigger screwterminal or junc...

Re: Converting MAX v3 to ATX PSU

I would never use an ATX power supply. I don't think they are very suited to the quickly changing power demands of PWM. ATX has only one advantage: The advantage is that you can set up the firmware to turn off the 12V power at the end of a print. And that is nicely covered by a good industrial PSU p...

Re: Rostock Max v2 tablet mod

Yes, that really is nice!
Would be even nicer when the webinterface got a bit more touch-friendly. I am always afraid to activate something while just scrolling. Adapting the font and zoom factor is a good in-between solution ;-)

Re: Issues with artifacts and over extrusion

Kodachrome, interesting construction with the extruders on the back of the skates. How is that working out? And the third extruder, is that just "counterbalance"?

Re: Warped Onyx Board V2

I have a V2 with FSR and duet, and I can say that calibrating before each print is a must anyways. The constructional stiffness of a V2 is in my opinion not enough by far (at least mine is not) because of the melamine parts. That the onyx bends a little (or a lot in some cases) is a fact, but in my ...

Re: Constant jamming with an e3d V6

Usually a first layer gets printed more slowly. Try to decrease the overall printing speed. I also suffered a lot from cloggs. My guess is that the heat transfer capacity of a standard E3D v6 is rather low and therefore hasty people (like me!) want to melt too much filament in too little time. The V...

Infill much too fat

Iwas trying Slic3r again, has been a while. Update to the 1.38.5 version first. I have been upgrading to a Volcano heatblock, with a .8mm nozzle.

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: 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.
