Re: First homing: horrible grinding sounds

Another tool for my toolbox... yeah! @ $6 on ebay that is a no brainer. I was wondering how much play existed between reported and actual temperature. The infrared heat meter i have is good enough for the bed but sort of useless for the nozzle. I just bought a $99 RCA windows tablet as my printer co...

Re: Bed Adhesion/Surface Treatments (Is My Bed Attached to the Heat Spreader?)

my glass bed supposed to be adhered to the aluminum heat spreader? ..... when I lift it, the heat spreader seems firmly attached. Maybe it's not an issue - I was just surprised to find it like that since I didn't read anything about it in the docs. I got some denatured alcohol and my bed is squeaky...

Re: Some PID Tuning Quirkiness

Thanks @pouncingiguana

Would you tweak then with M303 and then M301?

Also what do you think is the max retract distance?

Some PID Tuning Quirkiness

I just ran into some PID quirkiness; G if you have any ideas let me know. 1) Ran a pid tune (so I would be tuned to a new material) and did an M500 to save the tune. 2) I went to print an stl and the extruder would not heat - (the print attempted to restart with a 0 temperature on the nozzle, rather...

Re: First homing: horrible grinding sounds

The "haunted hot end" might be spot on. It could be filament path issue. If that is the case then; I would check the Bowden tube, 1) did you secure the lanyards on? they are going to stop bends and kinks near the push fitting, they are going to reduce friction 2) is the bowden tube seated;...

vs a single injection molding machine; much more capable and efficient in every regard.

Re: Hot End Chattering/Bouncing Against Bed, Not Much Extruded (Bad config.g?)

Totally makes sense that the TMC has safeguards against undervoltage and other concerns such as shorting. I read through the TMC spec sheet a while ago and I was watching a video on Prusa and I immediately knew that they were using a TMC driver to detect homing, stalling, and perhaps load sensing. R...

Re: First Probe Error and shutdown

The gcode command M122 might provide insight into the concern. If you are getting a disconnect AND the printer shuts down midstream concurrently you might be getting a reset. You can type in M122 in the gcode console on the web interface. M122 will report things such as why the board reset, voltages...

Ideas for a good laser cutter

I would be interested in cutting up to 1/4 inch mdf or ply; when not in use I want to be able to shark mount the "laser." I am not interested in using Sea Bass even if they are ill tempered. Anybody know of a good budget laser cutter.
