Re: FSR setup guide

It should be able to touch off Z=0. But, if that's all you want to do, why bother?

Re: FSR setup guide

On RAMBo the issue IS NOT support for FSRs. With the JohnSL board, FSRs look exactly like a simple endstop switch probe. Exactly. So follow Repetier's guidelines for setting up an endstop probe. The issue is the firmware support to actually use the probing data to calculate delta calibration paramet...

Or use ABS filament that way you can dissolve it out with acetone if it gets stuck.

Yes, the spring is the way to go. I got a set of springs for tube bending from MicroMark and they work great.

Re: More layer shifting

Set screws on the pulleys on the stepper motors. You may think they are tight but you may not have one of the screws on the flat of the stepper shaft. Been there, done that and it is hard to diagnose. But since you have done everything else, it's a place to look. And as Gene asked, can you correlate...

Re: Determining unknown nozzle bore size.

There are other issues though, the molten plastic "die swells". Die swelling is a function of a lot of things and nozzle diameter is one of them. Your dimensions will be off a bit in finished parts. For my parts, that would cause problems, for a Yoda statue it wouldn't. Of course, the smal...

Re: Determining unknown nozzle bore size.

Gage wires is the best way. Get a set of tiny metric drills and use the shaft side as the gage or buy a specialty set. And as Xenocrates correctly stated, you can not drill precise holes with a standard drill. If you don't have reamers, drill undersize and sneak up on it in at least 2 increments. No...

Yup, see: https://www.duet3d.com/forum/thread.php?id=1161

They use the same main board and simply mount an ethernet port and associated hardware where the Wifi module used to go.
