Thermistor Fail

I soldered all the wires including the thermistors to the wires that were previously there for the old hotend. My question was, when I turned on the p...

Re: Extruder stepper on a new Orion stuttering

I am having this exact problem and have tried all of these. but its still doing the same thing, I normally print with pla but did a little abs then switched back to pla, A few prints later I had this problem start. I think some ABS is stuck in the hotend or something. How can I fix this?

Printing large print.

Hey Guys I am thinking about doing my first very long and large print. It would take over 24 hours and require at least $8 for part of it. I was looking at it however before I got to printing and wasnt sure about the size. Is this too big to print off on a orion?

Dual extrusion?

Hey I was wondering If seemecnc or anyone else was going to create a dual extruder upgrade for the orion like some other printers do nowadays. I thought it might be pretty nice to be able to do two colors at once. If there already is one then please direct me to it as I may be interested in one.

Re: convince me to buy one.

got my printer and have done a few prints. I had a perfect 1st print. I have found that prints done by the SD card come out much better than with computer and also I am using PLA. Why is the fan in such a odd position? Also What is fan.gcode used for? I printed it and have no idea.
