Re: heat break stuck

I'm not personally familar with the Se300 hotend, but it seems that the heat break, at least the one you got, is rather similar to an E3D clone from amazon. Can you extract the PTFE, and see if it's warped at all, as well as checking it's length against the heatbreak itself? There is also a chance t...

Re: Duet Ethernet and 7" screen how to get it to work?

Nope. What you've done is set the IP for the mac to the IP of the duet. Think of it like a mailing address. You've told the mac and the duet they are both the same address. Instead, you should have the mac set to a different IP address in the network window. Don't touch the Duet currently, and chang...

Re: Duet Ethernet and 7" screen how to get it to work?

Are you connecting the mac directly via ethernet to the duet ethernet, or is the Duet ethernet connecting through a switch/router/hub? Networking is complicated. Especially when not working. Luckily for you, while I'm no professional network guru, I have decent experience with this crap. On the mac,...

Re: Duet Ethernet and 7" screen how to get it to work?

One thing you need to understand is that using a print host to change settings does not save those settings. The config.g is parsed at every startup, and then the configoverride.g is parsed. If you do not save your changes (There is a G code to do it, but manually editing and saving is probably easi...

Re: V2 (mid 2016) to V3.2 (current) upgrade?

I've taken something close to it, with having a duet in the bottom of a v2 frame. The .9 motors aren't needed to make it work really well, but they do give better resolution, and unlike the stock controller, the duet can run at a step rate to fully make use of the .9 motors. What you may want to do ...

Re: V2 (mid 2016) to V3.2 (current) upgrade?

Likely with the V3 to V3.2 upgrade kit, and the designs from repables, you'll have a pretty darn solid machine. The V3 frame is quite nice, but the V2 is still pretty solid (after all, a bunch of us manage to make pretty good parts on V2s, and Gene and a few others still keep V1's in working trim (I...

Re: V2 (mid 2016) to V3.2 (current) upgrade?

Those instructions won't cover everything. The V2 doesn't have the same frame setup as the V3, nor does it have mounting holes for the Duet, whip, etc. If you want that, you'll need a V3 frame kit, which goes for 270. If you don't want to change the hole frame, you can use a duet mount for the V2 fr...

Re: Duet WiFi - Rostock V2

I'm going to mostly agree with IMboring. Now, you can buy quieter fans, such as Noctua or Silenx (Little bit pricy, especially on the small diameter fans.) 2) It should only activate when the hotend is above 45C by default (if it's connected to fan1) Try M106 P1 T75, where 75 (AKA, whatever number f...

Re: Ugly outline perimeters

I suspect it's partially that the speed is too high, and also that either the belts are not tight enough, or that there is backlash or slop somewhere in the setup. Make sure that your hotend is tightly connected to the effector, that the bed is not shifting, and that the carriages are in good shape.

Re: Print failure when printing vertical columns?

Are you printing via USB or from an SD card? It does sound like it's USB. You may want to try using an SD card to avoid a reset USB connection killing the job (Loose cable, driver glitch, polling rate mismatch, etc. USB to serial is hard) If you want to debug the USB, make sure to open the serial co...

In that case, can you export your slicer settings, as well as dump your EEPROM for me? Both should be relatively simple, as the EEPROM dump can be done basically by opening the EEPROM settings in mattercontrol, and copying the log as it loads them from the printer, while most slicers have a settings...

The Duet does keep it's configuration (which includes a lot of the web server stuff as well, plus the config handles setting up communications with the Paneldue).

Re: Error:Line Number is not Last Line Number+1 when the printer it´s usb connected to de PC

I suspect that one of the controllers (USB, USB to serial, etc), has a finite buffer, and at times it was filling up and dropping lines, or an intermittent connection issue caused it to drop the lines of code. It would explain why a better computer wouldn't have the issue, as they have more fully fe...

The calcium silicate board can be cut reasonably with a circular saw or bandsaw.

Sand, you're pretty darn close. Wiring a V2 relatively stock isn't that bad, and the new parts will only speed up putting the carriages, belts, arms, and hotend together. And so long as you make some progress every time you work on it, you'll eventually get there. I have a friend who had a V3 that s...
