Re: oozing / stringing trouble RmaxV3+E3Dv6

Hi guys, I'm getting absolutely no stringing with a Retraction Distance of 2,5mm and a Retraction Speed of 20mm/s . But now I have a different problem that I think is related but have no idea on which setting to start touching: https://s19.postimg.org/uyuoahukv/IMG_6348.jpg https://s19.postimg.org/i...

oozing / stringing trouble RmaxV3+E3Dv6

Hi guys, I'm having lots of oozing / stringing after upgrading to a E3D v6 hotend. I'm only printing Createbot PLA. I use Cura with this settings: https://s19.postimg.org/hit84caz7/settings.png Going from 2.5mm retraction distance to 3mm seems to make no difference at all. I'm afraid of clogging if ...

Re: What is your experience with the HE280 hotend?

My experience was great for the first two or three months until I decided to switch to a smaller nozzle made by a third party. Then the nightmare begun and I didn't have too much time to solve the under extrusion problems so I just gave up and switched to a E3D v6 using the accelerometer probe. Its ...

Re: How-to: Dimensional Accuracy Calibration for Delta Printers

Hi guys. I've found out that my printer's scaling error is 0.99. My current arm length is 298.24 so I need to change it to 295.26. If I change this value on my Rostock Max v3: what calibration method should I do after? What if I dont do it? I'm a bit lost with the whole calibration after changing ar...

My efector is made from PLA. I never go higher than 225º and it never melts or deforms.

Re: Auto bed leveling not working properly R Max v3

Sounds like you need to lower your max Z length and increase your horizontal radius. You can crack open the eeprom and manually mess with these values if you want, or they're buried in the lcd menu if you want to position the head and turn the dial until it looks about right. Yep I am looking for s...

Re: Heated bed erratic behaviour

Are you using the controls to set the bed temp and not starting a print? Mine does that also. I think there's a timer that turns the bed heat off a certain time after no printing. This happens during a print and also when heating up without printing. I'll get a voltimeter and test the electricity t...

When I start the machine and choose 60 for the bed it starts warming up all right and once it gets to 60 it stays tehre for some time maybe ten minutes but then it goes off and the temperature starts to go down. So now the bed is no...

Auto bed leveling not working properly R Max v3

Hi guys so I switched to a E3D v6 hotend and now the automatic bed leveling with the delta calibration wizard is not working like it used to. The nozzle ends up too close to the glass at the center and the machine has a really hard time extruding and the oposite happens towards the end of the circle...

Re: How to use Cura 2.3.1 with the Rostock Max v2

Hi. Thank you for the files. I am succesfully using them on Cura. I just changed the file name and id inside so it doesn't replace the kossel mini and it works fine!
Couldn't find files like yours for the Rostock Max v3 but theese work ok.

Re: i2c error accelerometer failed to initialise

Did you check the conection at the hot end? The conections at the Pluggable 8 position Push-In Wire Terminal Plug may be loose, happened to me with the accelerometer probe and was solved disconecting the Terminal Plug from the hotend and pushing the cables in.
