Re: B3 Innovations Pico Hot End

Nylocke, maybe the 3mm version would benefit from a longer heatblock/meltzone? I know you have made custom volcanoes so why not give a pico volcano a shot?

Re: Gravely 20G Flywheel Fan -- 254mm Dia!

Abs is going to be a nightmare to print something that size, it looks like your nozzle bumped into an artifact/blob and threw the whole the thing out of whack. I would recommend PLA to test print this in before working up to ABS.

Re: 110VAC Bed Heater

I picked up a 300mm 500W AC silicone mat with a thermastor off Ebay, mounted it to a 300mm aluminum disk and am using a Fostek SSR to drive it from the Rambo. So far it works great room temp to 110C in under 3 minutes. I just have to figure out a nice way of mounting it to the snowflake and get ano...

Re: a question on microcontroller boards

You can do all of the mentioned stuff on the rambo as well. It supports 2 extruders, has some ios for the fsrs and by default you can run 24v for the bed. The bed we use has low resistance so it draws a lot of current at 24v so you either need to modify the software a bit or dial down the psu. (The...

If you are worried about weight and it triggers the board you can just select the next sensitivity option I guess....The board has thre...

Re: Heuristic (AI) calibration for delta printers on Smoothi

Will the trid FSR's be able to detect anything if I stick them under an MDF snowflake derivative which is underneath a 400mm round kapton heater bed which is under one of the giant aluminum plates from sandsmachine which may or may not be under a piece of tempered or boro glass?

I may have to use my azteeg on a different printer and grab a smoothieboard then, oh well. If anyone on here has a smoothie they would like to get rid of please let me know, thanks.

Whenever you get a chance to look at yours please get back to me, I may have to dial it back down to nema 17s after all.

Lookin to build a giant delta bot using the 626pilot auto calibration firmware and nema 23 motors. I went ahead and grabbed an azteeg x5 mini but now I am wondering if that can actually drive such large steppers. Anyone know?

Re: Of Pink Elephants and Melamine Bonfires

Throw the file up that you are trying to print and I will give it a shot, I have an advantage in that I have my hotend mounted 2 inches below the effector on my rostock max v2.
