Re: Rostock v4 Error code M141

I've started getting this too in the past week, repeatedly. The only change on my end is that I upgraded Cura from 4.1 to 4.2.1 so maybe it's a default in there.

Re: Ghosting on vertical surfaces

If the v4 is like the 3.2, you only need to loosen the motor screws a tiny bit and lift up the motor a tiny bit before tightening the screws. I would have mentioned this earlier, but I thought you'd built the v4 from a kit. My apologies. g. oh, no way I would trust myself to build a complex machine...

Re: Ghosting on vertical surfaces

Mechanically, the 3.2 and the 4 are going to be pretty close - the 4 will be stiffer due to the all-metal construction. You might want to try tightening up your belts a little bit and see how that goes. How fast are you printing? Is the bowden tube & wiring harness in a position to "drag" the effec...

Re: Ghosting on vertical surfaces

So it's apparently from the effector head "bouncing" just a little from the in and out quick motion of doing the embossed areas, but accel and jerk are the only things I've read that can impact it (by making the approach to a direction change slower). And then maybe belt tension, which I don't know ...

Re: Ghosting on vertical surfaces

sorry for the delay!

these are at two different settings - i think the one with the closer-spaced ringing is the initial, and then the farther-spaced one was after slowing the accel and jerk down.

Ghosting on vertical surfaces

OK people I'm having an issue with ghosting on walls - like when I make a box with text embossed in the sidewalls, the text is ghosted very clearly. I've reduced jerk all the way down to 5mm/s and accel is down also (in Cura) because I thought that was the cause - it changed the distance of the ghos...

Re: WiFi dropout - how to reconnect?

I think that it's .4mm for a .4mm nozzle. So the size of the nozzle will define the layer height. But I've never tried to go larger than .4mm, so I'm not sure. Ohhh not the MAX height, but the "magic number" meaning the layer heights at which the steppers do a full step so that you don't get goofy ...

Re: WiFi dropout - how to reconnect?

Yeah, deadlines suck. But with the SD card you can print without the WiFi. If you are going to be doing this as a business, you need backup printers. I have four of them. And a healthy collection of spare parts, and a voltmeter. If it doesn't hurt the quality of your finished product, re-slice your...

Re: WiFi dropout - how to reconnect?

The VIN undervoltage event is worth looking into. Since it's brand new, see if you can swap out the power supply with a new one. Oof, wouldn't have any idea how to do that but I assume it's all screws and connectors; I'd love to change that fan out anyhow if I've got it open like i did with the exh...

Re: [Partially Solved] Quiet down the fan in the base?

FAN UPDATE 2: Doh, didn't realize until well into a print that there is another fan in there, I suppose the Power Supply fan itself, that also sounds like a hairdryer once it's going. I'll bet that one is much harder to get to. Dang.

Re: Large objects.

I have not tried this myself, but, what about combining supports (I think the experimental Tree Support type in Cura has been received fairly well) with a *raft*? the raft would basically give your tiny edge a bigger footprint. But, I think you'd have to go zero gap between the raft and supports to ...

Re: Quickie: V4 how to keep the live Z adjustment all the time?

The other way to change the Z=0 height is to alter the Z parameter (trigger height) in the G31 command in config.g The advantage of doing it this way is that it will be unaffected by running auto calibration. Increasing the Z parameter (or if it is negative - as with nozzle-contact probes - making ...
