Re: Hotend will not shut off!!!!!!!!!!!

Poly, I just wanted to update and say that this was the case. Disconnecting the second hotend did the trick. So it looks like the default firmware is like yours and it powers the hotend from the fan pin. I'm trying to catch up on the forums after the hiatus and parsing the new developments so I can ...

Re: Hotend will not shut off!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Polygonhell, I have disconnected the second extruder, hotend and thermistor for now until I can get further into this. That would make sense about the peek fan, because I had it on to cool the hotend down after the overshoot. I do have a fan on both the board and the hotends to cool from the ...

Hotend will not shut off!!!!!!!!!!!

I have now gotten my 3rd rambo board because of gremlins. Rambo 1 - Died due to cura slamming head down on parts after job finishes. (Thanks to the "Settings" addition in the file that can't be turned off) Melted leads into part and ruined the hotend. Rambo 2 - Marathon print overheated bo...

Re: well... i blew up another board

I did blow one after my Cura adventure.

Did I see somewhere that they will repair them if sent in for a fee? I don't see it on the site.

I have a thermistor input out, Hotend eternally stuck on, LCD output fried and then the board locks up if I try to print from USB after about an hour.

Re: New platform...

It looks roughly the same size. If anything, it should make Tricklasers job easier since it is a single bar setup for him to sell now that appears to snap in place. The question is did they change the carriage mounts too.

Re: Printing With Dual Extruders - My Early Lessons Learned

Agreed, but it prints so well in comparison. I think I am still going to use it, but make some changes to the code so after the print is done, an emergency reset is triggered to clear out the rambo. The option to add or remove that profile code needs to be in the program. I haven't found a way to au...

Re: Printing With Dual Extruders - My Early Lessons Learned

Speaking of Cura, I had beed using Slic3r but decided to try it. Immediately better prints but there are problems. I was running 14.01 but tried 14.02 RC05 after a bug was found. (If you set your machine to reprap, then add a makerbot also, all gcode flavors after that are makerbot and added to evey...

Re: ABS bridging performance

You are on the right track int2str What I have had the best success with is dropping the bridging extrusion rate down to about .60-.70 and testing from there. I also slow the speeds way down (10-15mm) so it can stretch and cool that first layer. However, Slic3r has a hard time with bridges and I hav...

Re: Thoughts on pausing prints when filament runs out.

I agree about the paused print and resume. Primarily, I am trying to prevent burning my hotend up due to overnight prints where I run out of filament. Supposedly the Makerbot software will let you swap filament mid print to change colors, replace filament, etc. My son likes to make "Rainbow&quo...

Re: This isn't supposed to happen, right?

Agreed, but you don't have to heat it on the machine if you are in a hurry. You could put it in an oven to start the processes and get it close to temp and then let the onyx stabilize it. For any of us that have marathon print sessions, it could work out as long as we know the plate will take a whil...

Re: This isn't supposed to happen, right?

I know this is a drastic switch from using Boro or glass, but what about using a 1" plate of granite? It might take a bit to heat up, but small surface plates for measuring tight tolerances might be able to solve several problems. Most are 2-3" but I have seen some micro plates that were 9...

Thoughts on pausing prints when filament runs out.

As we all know, the Rostock has a wonderfully large build volume, which can lead to Looonnnngggg prints. So I was wondering what could be done to pause prints when filament jams or runs out. I figure with so many people on here using the system it has probably already been done. I would say a simple...

They may charge more for the machines, but I know steel is less for me than the melamine HDF sheets. I can find MDF melamine for cabinetry all over, but HDF that the Rostock uses is not anywhere to be found unless I order it in. As for steel, It doesn't split when I tighten it, it doesn't bow when h...

Re: Peeling Off the Glass

+1000 for the brim. I have been using that on large parts lately and have not had a curl since I have started with it. I will use around a 3mm brim or larger depending on the width and height of the part. Biggest I have printed was a 6"' diameter part and used a 5mm brim

That and if you do a dumb (falls off the table, too much acceleration to the top part and then a sudden stop) you might be bending your aluminum extrusions from all that weight....
