Re: Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

So the power measured 12-12.5. The hot end measured .14-.16. I am guessing it's the mosfet like you mentioned. And yeah there are LEDs all over, including the one that is basically telling you the hotend is on. I'll take a look at the fuses next time I'm out there, but I think the fans work fine.

Here is the setting I had my multimeter on. I touched the red inside the + and black inside the - that the hotend is usually plugged into.

Re: Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

So I turned the knob on my voltage measuring thing whatever it's called, to 20 in the V section. It measured .16. I didn't get a reading on 800 or any of the other settings. I'm sure you can see why this is hard for me. I really don't know what's going on.

Re: Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

Tried the 205. Got to about 35c and it died. The thermistor seems to be able to read my body heat when I touch it, and the reading does go up. I bought this one https://www.matterhackers.com/store/l/e3d-high-precision-heater-cartridge-12v-30w/sk/M04JNTNA This is the 2nd cartridge to not work so I do...

Re: Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

I ran 'M303 E0 S190 C8' - that's what gave me the error I replaced everything with pretty much the exact same stuff so didn't think I'd need to do anything other than that. I previously had E3D v6 also, but I upgraded the heater block to a coated one, or clean tip or something, as well as the heat b...

Re: Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

Ok sorry to keep beating a dead horse but here is the update: Thermistor definitely working. Holding it spikes the temp reading. Hot end is not heating up still, even after replacing it with a new one. I even replaced the wiring. It's not that it won't heat up, it's that it only makes it about 1.2 d...

#define EXT0_TEMPSENSOR_TYPE 8 //97 8 should be the E3d type, according to their troubleshooting guide. I examined the thermistor to see if I broke it when tightening the nut.

Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

Hello again for the millionth time! I'm trying to debug this nozzle issue and hoping someone can help. I try to heat up the nozzle on my E3D v6 (newer cartridge style) and the temperature doesn't rise fast at all. So slow (< 1c) that it decouples heater. Now, I do have a reading of 20.6 at idle and ...

Re: RMV2 and Dual Extrusion?

Thanks for the idea! Is the Y-feeder decent? I'll look into it. The cost will be much higher though. After a good bit of research, I think it's probably not a good idea to print support material using a single-nozzle solution. Dual nozzle seems too risky given that I'm not sure my machine is even cl...

RMV2 and Dual Extrusion?

Hi everyone, So I know this topic has been beaten to death, but I thought I'd see if anyone has tried, can recommend, or absolutely loathes the E3D Cyclops+ or Chimera+. And if dual E3d V6 would be better. I would primarily like to print brittle support material for the first and last few layers of ...

Re: Layer Shifting

I just had a layer shift while printing retraction cubes...just above the second layer or so. I think it's straight up a terribly built printer (my fault). Feels like it's spitting out too much filament as it's often leaving some even when retracting. Coasting doesn't seem to help. I've calibrated t...

Re: Layer Shifting

The current fan shrouds are the file that came in the instructions, I believe. I don't think I've ever seen a corner-mounted one. That would be cool, though. Do you mean you screw the fan directly to the frame? Seems like the air would come out horizontally. KL17H248-15-4A I don't think any of these...

Re: Layer Shifting

Fail. Not only was there a massive layer shift, but it was probably caused by the huge amount of curling just past the first few base layers. I'm guessing it's due to insufficient cooling. This would make sense since I removed 2 of my fans. I was using the original squirrel cage fans with the origin...

Re: Layer Shifting

Okay major update. I started using the new profile and it looks great but still had a layer shift. I then took rootboy's advice and removed the fans and led ring and I have not experienced a single layer shift since. Now that isn't to say it won't happen, I'll be trying a bigger print today. I even ...

Re: Layer Shifting

Definitely a good idea. I put it together several years ago when I wasn't strapped for time. But I did do some upgrades a few times, and I've honestly never had the best attention to detail so yeah there could be quite a few mistakes.

Re: Layer Shifting

Here is a sad thing, as I was removing fans I noticed that the standoff on the Y side is not flush against the top of the effector plate. it was up by two threads. Apparently it doesn't pull tight when screwing the plate to the standoff. I can only imagine this causes the hot end to be a little tilt...

The nozzle does have z-lift. It's ridiculously high, too. I was going to remove it but honestly the results are the same as any time in the last few months. Nasty layer shift to the left.

Yes. I turned combing to 'skin only' per a few comments I found buried in a topic. Makes sense because the head was making moves that didn't retrace, but were long distances, and left filament behind that then built up.
