Re: Max V2 Calibration Issues

My eeprom settings seem off to me, should 0 be my delta radius for A<B<C? Also my X>Y>Z home position should that be 0?

Re: RostockMax V2 Calibration Issue Thermistor Fail

Personally I would do a clean stock e3dv6 install. It's so much easier with the thermistor. Up to 280c +/- is very reliable. I've checked mine with a thermocouple and it's almost perfect. The pt100 is a very different thing that needs tinkering. Please don't take it wrong, but if you can't do a pro...

Re: RostockMax V2 Calibration Issue Thermistor Fail

One thing to be careful about. The PT100 needs an amplifier before it gets to the Rambo (E3D and Filastruder both sell them), and you'll need to make sure you have the right profile. Other than the PT100 profile proper, they really aren't close to right. I can walk you through some of that if you'd...

Re: RostockMax V2 Calibration Issue Thermistor Fail

Thank you for the walkthrough. My fan shroud melted previously, that's how it looks now. I ordered the pt100, new bowden for the e3d, and fan shroud today. I'm hoping to resume building my max v2 when the parts arrive. I'm abandoning the thermistor. I will certainly follow the directions when the ne...

Re: RostockMax V2 Calibration Issue Thermistor Fail

This is the best I can do, I screwed it in as much as possible. I have only used the parts the were sent to me with the e3d. Im going to attempt to get it screwed in further. I am considering upgrading to the pt100 sensor. I am not using a volcano.

Re: RostockMax V2 Calibration Issue Thermistor Fail

After wrapping the heating
block and lowering the pid value to 128 I updated my auto tune results and continued to the next step in the calibration manual, this video show the failure. I think I need to order another E3d. https://youtu.be/7FaF9EfrYHA

All of the videos I've seen, not one has silicone tape wrapped around the heat block, what is the design flaw here?

replacing the thermistor took care of the def reading.
auto tune is still failing.

Not enough heat to heating element.

Try increasing max pid value so system is able to pump more heat.


max pid is 205, the manual says to lower the value to 128 for a successful reading. What percent on fan should I do the auto tune at and how much more heat?

Re: RostockMax V2 Calibration Issue Thermistor Fail

Absolutely nothing has changed since updating the lcd. Everyone keeps defaulting to wiring issues, this has been checked at least twelve times. It only started displaying 'def' since todays pid.

After trying to run a pid routine the test comes back with the result ext0 thermistor fail. Does this mean I need to replace it? I have one that came with the max v2 s...

Re: Rostock Max v2 Freaks out!

My v2 is doing something very similar. I have followed the setup guide word for word and am at a loss as to what is happening. The calibration videos, and belt tensioning walk throughs are somewhat vague. I do not think that the arms would do that if they are passing the end stop tests and the calib...

The printer responds to manual controls in matter control...this is entirely frustrating.

Re: Finished Rostock V2 build and E3d mount upgrade now LCD malfunction
