Re: HE280 Hot End and Probe board on RMAX v2

Still extremely interested the in instant you think you have the injection molded ball arms ready. I need a custom set of 340mm long arms ASAP.

Re: Bondtech Mini for hanging extruder?

Just pinging this one to see where it went. I'm curious if you got your gear set and tried this. If you need any help, just ask. Also, curious if you worked with Martin of Bondtech to get a custom design going for a flying extruder strap or mounting system. He's really good and is willing to help mo...

Re: Auto-Calibration Tweaks?

FWIW, I spent $100 to get one too, just so I could say i had an unmolested version (and i didn't even add tape) and yes, I get it too. My working "theory" is that the wiring harness and Bowden tube are a bit stiff, and being near the Z tower, that is the root cause?? My fix- the absolute p...

Re: ERIS Early adopter feedback

Admittedly, this is a sloppy way to fix it. I should make a conditional statement for type 3 and make it enabled, thus leaving type 4 also disabled (I think that's Droplit). Doesn't really matter that i know of, but somebody could prove me wrong. I was just trying to minimize the edit and make it wo...

Re: Eris Smart Controller

Oops, caution, caution my config was for changed motors!!!! Do not use the whole config if you did not match my XYZ Eris motor upgrade.
Just change line 738 in your config.h

Again, simplest change ever. Change from type 0 to type 13 and flash.

Re: ERIS Early adopter feedback

Use this config.h or edit yours Basically, I edited line 738 near the end of the config.h. Basically, just follow me through this bit of code. Up higher in the config, when you define the printer type, 3 is for the ERIS. It begins at line 735 #if PRINTER == 1 || PRINTER == 2 What this line does is s...

I think SeeMeCNC really, really, really, needs to take this advice and implement to production.

Re: Bondtech Mini for hanging extruder?

The Wanhao kit won't have pushfit in and out, which is kind of what you want for a flying extruder. The Wanhao is basically the same design, just specific to fit that printer and since the feeder its above the hotend, no lower output pushfit. So basically, you pay $85 for a printed housing and gears...

Re: Bondtech Mini for hanging extruder?

More details if you do go Bondtech mini. I totally understand people balking at upgrades, but the feeder makes or breaks your printing experience in a lot of cases. Since the motor is not attached to anything, definitely turn down the current or add a fan not not melt the housing. I printed my test ...

Re: Bondtech Mini for hanging extruder?

As a huge fan of the mini, I have to tell you this is a great idea based on real world experience.

Re: ERIS Early adopter feedback

Should have added, When you see the blue line BELOW the RED line= BAD. AKA Clipping
Per the instructions in the data sheet, the example.
Again, even as low as 40mm/s the curve begins to appear that we are lagging and only gets worse the faster you go.

Re: ERIS Early adopter feedback

m motor data sheet m Basically, at 60mm's carriage speed, not effector speed, we already see the inductance high enough the driver is maxed out. Meaning current lags where it should be. Simply put, do not run a 12V rated motor with a microstepping driver on 12V because there is no "headroom&quo...

Re: ERIS Early adopter feedback

Figure I might as well kick over this stone now, as i just discovered it. You cannot use microstepping on a 12V rated motor on a 12V rated power source. m They draw appx. .35 amps at 12v and are 1.8 degree (200 step). That's why this thing is so noisy, the stepper driver cannot control the current i...

Re: Endstops, is Hall Effect an Upgrade?

I would not depend on that. If you even remotely understand magnetic fields, the strength of the field based on distance is both a function of the distance and shape of the magnet. As such, you are adjusting the threshold of sensitivity of the Hall effect device. It's not a linear function. In other...

Re: Most elegant way to wire duel extruder?

I'll try to post pictures later tonight of that build. The key was I used a washer on the 1/4 inch screws that hold the extrusion and t-nut to ensure the capscrew didn't go through the t-nut and crush the wiring. I think it builds faster and easier than trying to chase all that wiring down the cente...

I hate to say it but I also already saw failure and overheating the PCB at the solder joints which oxidized quickly from the heat.

Re: Most elegant way to wire duel extruder?

Sorry, should have read the title better. So for a dual extruder, I could run a 4 wire up the open center of the X tower given my wiring scheme. It would be better (IMO) to swap and put the second 4 wire stepper up the Y tower with the hotend wires, VS stepper+ endstop wires on the X tower. Again, m...

I kind of went a different route when building my V2.

Re: ERIS Early adopter feedback

Looks good. I suppose you can't trim the base so you could angle the extruder to line up to the feed tube better? Prolly make the base look hacked up. The point was 10% for stock, and 90% for using with the Mosaic Palette which uses an external encoder about the size of a feeder attached with a sho...
