Re: How to Upload Firmware HEX to Max v3

Why go to all that effort when uploading the code via the IDE does the job? g. Do you mean from the Arduino IDE or from the LCD on the max? if from Arduino IDE (Win/Mac)? it's because the raspberry pi is installed in the top of the max 3 and to use my laptop or Arduino IDE I have to ⋅ Mov...

Re: How to Upload Firmware HEX to Max v3

I got it to work, here is how I did it and I'm sure these steps could be reduced or the process done better but this is how I did it. using PuTTY I logged into the Raspberry Pi 2 that is mounted in the top of my Rostock Max v3. Verified the serial port it was using from the connection that was succe...

Re: How to Upload Firmware HEX to Max v3

Thanks but I need specific advice or commands to use. I have already googled and even read the link you are suggesting a few hours ago. It is using -c usbtiny which is not right since the octopi is connecting via ttyACM0 (yes it's usb but it is virtualized serial port I think). I can't find anything...

How to Upload Firmware HEX to Max v3

I have my Rostock Max v3 setup with a Raspberry Pi installed in the top and running OctoPi. I have tried for the last few hours to figure out how to use avrdude to upload the pre-compiled .HEX files available in the github seemecnc firmware repo but can't get it to work. I'm trying to avoid removing...

Re: FABLAM !!

Carefully with a sharp scraper. See my V3 thread or blog about the tools I use and how I modify the SeeMeCNC scraper. Sharpen the edge as I show and then slowly and carefully scrape. It works fine, you just can't attack it like a gorilla. Cool. Thanks. I have read your posts many times but need to ...

Re: P003A HE280 [Solved?] Auto Leveling Issue/Bed Leveling Issue/Calibration

Try it using the g-code script and not through the front panel. g. I do have the g-code script and even the modified version mhackney posted to turn off the HE and that works great. But the new firmware (currently in dev) is supposed, AFAIK, to have better calibration. I've also seen PDaddy saying ...

Re: FABLAM !!

How do you remove single layer print fails on the FABLAM surface if you can't use a scraper?

Or areas that only have bits and pieces of material from a build that are stubborn and not easily removed without some force?

Thanks, that answers my question.

I just built a Max v3 and want to update the wiring a bit and in future add another extruder. There are a lot of part numbers listed in the various assembly guides but they are all SeeMeCNC numbers and finding them on digikey or mouser is a bit of a challenge. As of today and to the best of my abili...
