Re: ABS recommendations

I've not done a lot of ABS on the Artemis, but I've done a ton of it on my Max V3 with enclosure. I heat the bead to 110C for the first few layers, then drop to 100. Every once in a while (many prints), I clean the glass well, then apply a wet coat of Aqua-net purple. That's the "all weather, e...

Lubricating linear rails?

I double-checked the instructions to make sure I hadn't missed it, and there's no info on how to lubricate the rail and carriage system. I had the problem that after only a few hours of printing, my printer started chattering and producing very poor results. The Z tower was worst but all did it to s...

Paneldue

It looks like SeeMeCNC is planning a Paneldue option sometime. There is a punch-out in place for the wiring and a couple of pre-drilled mounting holes in the top plate. I bought a Paneldue 7i and used a slight mod of this case m to install it. The mod is 1. Shorten the mounting arm by 20mm. 2. Offse...

Motor Currents?

I've been printing at the "recommended" max speed of 100mm/S and had a terrible time getting layer shifts on larger items. I was also seeing the extruder popping back as well (not slipping but actually turning backwards) unless I ran the hot-end temp really high. That was very easy to trig...

Re: Tuning Simplify3d Profile

Here's my version. It's running rated speeds and sizes, limits layer times based on the performance of the cooling fans and pre-heats both the hot-end and the bed in parallel. Benchies come out very nice, especially considering the speeds and 0.25 layer height.

Are the part cooling fans the weakest performance link?

In the past, I normally use ABS for UV resistance and the ability to use solvent cement on the parts I make. Since the Artemis came with a roll of PLA, and I need to get my Simplify3D profile tuned, I've been printing 3DBenchies in PLA. The printer itself is really solid, precise and amazingly quiet...

Re: Tuning Simplify3d Profile

I tried your profile, but it was under-extruding (0.95) and the speeds are very low for the Artemis.
What made you choose the bed size you did? Are you going for max height?

Re: New Artemis, Homing and calibration issues

Turns out it was still flakey. I ended up cutting the connector off and using a few of the spare pins to re-do it. There must have been a bad crimp in the factory-supplied set. It's now happily printing the pre-sliced benchy with the supplied neon green PLA and all looks good.

Re: New Artemis, Homing and calibration issues

Gene was right. Intermittent connection on the X stepper motor. I had to disconnect and reconnect it a couple of times to get it solid. Perhaps there was some oxidation on the pins. Homing and calibration work fine now. This morning I was able to get that going and verify the bed heater and thermist...

New Artemis, Homing and calibration issues

I got my Artemis today and assembled it. I already have a Max3 which I built as well. There is an issue with the X tower. When I select "home" from the web interface, sometimes it works, and sometimes it moves the X carriage way down then back up. When it does work, the X carriage is about...

Where are all of the detailed Artemis reviews?

Hello, I was a very early wait-list buyer of the Max V3. I use it a lot and did mods for 24V bed heating and an enclosure for ABS printing. I'm intrigued by the Artemis, but was disappointed that it still uses a standard bowden extruder design. Since Artemis has been out about a month now, I keep lo...

Re: v3 Maximum PSP Voltage Setting

I don't know which onyx you have. The one which came with my Max V3 measures 0.91 ohms. You are probably getting some voltage drop across the FETs in the Rambo, but at 14.6 volts you'd be pushing over 16 amps through the Rambo FETs and fuse, which are only rated for 15A. I had my V3 set to around 14...

Re: usb switch

To install that plugin on my rpi, I just went to the plugins page on the octoprint web interface and pointed it to the .zip file for the plugin. Five seconds later it was done. Doing it that way won't auto-install new versions but is quick and easy.

Re: usb switch

A raspberry Pi 3 is only about $35 and provides a much more elegant solution for talking to your printer from multiple hosts. Edit: It looks like you already have octoprint set up. In that case, perhaps you're trying to build and flash new firmware for the Max3. That's a pretty rare thing to do, but...

Re: Cancel print in OctoPrint doesnt cancel target temps

Are you trying to cancel before the printer has reached the temp in the first place? This probably also depends on which slicer you're using and what G-Code prologue you have. I slice with S3D and once printing has started, cancelling definitely seems to cool things down. If you're having problems, ...

Make sure the ambient temperature is above 18C or you'll get that message.
Make sure the connector on the hot-end is well seated.

Re: Super stringy prints, help!

Make sure your hot end is not clogged. Take the nozzle and top retainer off and make certain it's open and clear. Then when you put it back together after installing the retaining clip on the bowden tube. Push the tube back down that 2.5mm or so. If you don't a blob will build up right at the bottom...

Re: Expecting to much from the Max V3?

It doesn't take that long to build and set up. It uses a larger nozzle by default so features will not be as fine unless you change nozzles. It will run a long time without maintenance once set up properly.. You don't need to re-calibrate unless you move it or something once it's up and running. I r...

Re: Improved my hot end back pressure

It's just a guess, but, I think it's far more likely that you originally didn't push the bowden in further after installing the retaining clip on the hot end the first time. Then you could get melted plastic blocking the path and causing problems. When you reassembled things you probably got a bette...
