Re: Adventures in Noise Slaying

Definitely good to know! The Duet Wifi definitely goes on my list of eventually upgrades...I didn't realize there was such a significant difference between the TMC 2100 and 2660. :)

Re: Adventures in Noise Slaying

... since they're reported to have a high pitched whine when running 12v.... I've been supporting the Duet WiFi since launch and this is the first time I've heard that claim. Can you point me to that report? Maybe it's just an issue with the Trinamic TMC2100 standalone drivers then? I've seen tons ...

Adventures in Noise Slaying

My RMax V1 (heavily upgraded) was always a pretty noisy beast, but has been much quieter since installing some astrosyn dampers. However, I didn't like the effect they had on softening sharp corners/causing minor overshoot on high acceleration...I even noticed it was possible to wiggle the motors by...

Upgrade woes, endstop doesn't line up

I've been happily running my RMax V1 for a long while now, making incremental upgrades along the way; I replaced the original giant extruder, bought carbon fiber arms, swapped the hotend for a Prometheus. About 6 months ago I bought the new molded carriages, ball joint arms, and matching effector, a...

Re: Hobbed Drive Roller Causing Rose Thorn Filament, Failed Prints

For PLA you generally need to lower retraction speed significantly, it should be around 25mm/s.

Re: GCODE entry

My guess is you're probably in absolute extrusion mode instead of relative. So if you tell it to extrude 3mm, it'll do it, and then when you send the same command again, the printer says it's already at 3mm of extrusion, nothing to do. You'd have to say extrude 6mm to get another 3mm. Or go to relat...

Re: Looking for more precision

In SLA category, you'd definitely get the precision you're aiming for, but as Michael mentioned your build volume would be pretty small. What size parts do you want to make? And the other trade-off with using leadscrews or ballscrews is the added rotational momentum of the screw itself. So again ver...

Re: Settings to smooth the edges better? Pic attached

Yep, what Noircogi said. Your print quality is really excellent, layer alignment looks spot on, with smooth extrusion. So if you want to minimize layer lines, you'll need to go for finer resolution. In the settings you posted, you're at .2mm layer resolution; you could certainly print at .1mm instea...

Re: recommended brand(s)

Maker geeks is always good stuff, high quality and made in America. They're also pretty cheap and have a much less expensive annealable PLA than you'll find other places.

Re: The Prometheus System - Intuitive Multi-Filament 3D Printing!

So I saw that you have to have the V2 heatsink to connect it up correctly...the machine I'd be putting this in still has a V1, could I add the price of a V2 heatsink to my pledge so I don't have to order and pay shipping separately through your regular shop?

So a couple of technical questions...you mentioned the Y being custom machined from a HPV PEEK blend, what makes that special? And does the extruder constrain the filament all the way up to the drive gear? If so then flexible materials should be too difficult as long as the bowden is short, like wit...
