Re: New Rostock Max V3! Let the Calibrations Begin

I personally wouldn't recommend doing that mainly because if you ever have to adjust/modify/replace the tube it is a real pain. Mine is ziptied every 5 inches and never had it come out of the housing. If yours keeps coming out, maybe you need to replace the locking piece as it may be worn, or the tu...

Re: New Rostock Max V3! Let the Calibrations Begin

I was in your boat and I had to jump into buying upgrades. Depending on your budget this may or may not be a route for you but in my experience it is definitely worth it. I spend less time calibrating and dealing with frustrations and I am more confident in printing with little to no errors. Please ...

Re: oozing / stringing trouble RmaxV3+E3Dv6

Try Kisslicer 1.6. Try out the profile Printer wizard for the Extruder option. MHackney made a tutorial for the new release

That looks like artifacting. Its looks like every couple of layer heights it resets so look into tightening all your belts (possibly calibrating for fine tuning steps)

Re: Very spotty prints: what can it be?

After you do delta cal, do g29 and try again. If it's still bad I would suspect extruder needs calibration or endstops

Re: SIMPLE CONNECTOR FOR HOTEND WIRING COMING SOON

On the Duet Wifi Diagram, you have the Hotend Pos/Neg going to E1 on the Duet board, that should be to E0.

Re: SIMPLE CONNECTOR FOR HOTEND WIRING COMING SOON

I was brainstorming for the longest time trying to think of how I was going to quick swap hotend setups with the accelerometer board with 713maker mount while trying to access the Bowden fitting to secure it. This takes care of both clean and Bowden access.

Re: Bed Callibration issue

When I was using Octoprint, I only did G29 and Delta Cal Wizard, but still used Octoprint web interface. Also try using just three alternating bed clamps to avoid inducing more warping in between axis. Those pics seem like it was too close rather than up in the air.

Re: Bed leveling and calibration. Very frustrated.

I was bored this weekend and I actually just redid my endstops to be within 4mm finally. I had my endstops fully in at first but what I ended up doing was unscrew it halfway so I have room to add or subtract thread length, recal to set the endstops, and adjust from there. Only work one axis at a tim...

Re: Firmware/GCODE/Commands

Do you have a Rambo or Duet? (Mine is Duet) It is wired to be always on when the unit is on. You would have to bypass the board and wire directly from controller board PWM fan header to the hotend fan. Then you can control the hotend fan using FAN 0/1/etc depending on which fan you use. As far as Ra...

Re: Changing the Hot End?

I just got my Volcano and waiting on the 713Maker mount. Do I need to do another PID tuning and other cals (besides bed height adjust) since I already have an E3D V6 hotend or is it plug and play?

Re: v3 Calibration issue

Maybe your endstop screws are too high or uneven, try screwing them all down so they are all the same level and try again. Are you using most current firmware? I think there was something buggy with the recent one so try the previous file.

Re: Changing the Hot End?

Being able to "hot swap" (haha get it...hotend...) is awesome, definitely brings the excitement to 3D printing from printing detailed items to rapid prototyping just as fast as changing filaments!

One tip I learned from mhackney was to sharpen and bevel the spatula tip so it essentially it is razor thin. all you need is the proper angle to get a tiny portion underneath the print but not dig into the pei surface, then you can level the spatula and slide it underneath the rest of the print easi...

Re: Bed leveling and calibration. Very frustrated.

Scarring can be avoided using a 4mm z-hop or lift in your slicer setting. I use MC, Cura, or Kisslicer but havent paid for simplify3d so not sure where that setting is. I am curious if you tried running the delta cal wizard? I would suggest g29 three times, delta cal wizard, then g29 and print somet...

I just installed the v2 kit + eSwitch kit with my E3D V6 hotend and it works wonderfully with the Duet board. Getting rid of the three fans makes it much lighter and I can use the fan sliders in the web interface. Still not used to the initial startup but like any motor it needs it, 100% on is crazy...

Re: Changing the Hot End?

All things considered, I would recomend you buy a new effector+ball joint set with the hotend, and either a compatible socket or another accel board, so you can swap them out, as the E3D and the like have slightly more issues with PLA than the HE280 from my understanding (It's a small difference). ...

The whole hotend and mount would be changed out, you would have to disassemble the old mount and desolder the accelerometer from the stock hotend. Then solder the heater cartridge and thermistor leads from the volcano into the accelerometer board and assemble into a new mount. There are volcano moun...
