Re: Filament making

That makes sense. I had wondered about that as well. It also makes me wonder about the do-it-yourself filament makers out there (Filabot, Strooder, etc.). Those systems are much smaller and simpler than the one shown in the video.

Re: A Tale of Two Problems

Have you adjusted for virtual bed shape? Once you have adjusted the endstop switches so that the z-zero height is similar near all three tower locations, if you find the z-zero height at the center of the bed is too high or too low, adjust the EEPROM "Horizontal Radius" setting. This value...

Re: Rostock MAX v2 questions

1.b Can you run multiple printers off of a single computer? TIA 1.b I would assume it is possible, but you'd probably need multiple 'mattercontrol' or 'repetier host' programs running which seems like it should work. I have two printers (an Orion and a Rostock Max v2) connected simultaneously to my...

Re: Ver 1.2.2

I'm still using MatterControl version 1.2 on Windows 7, and it does not require me to be connected to a printer in order to load the queue or save/edit to an SDcard. Am I to understand that this changed in version 1.2.2, and that the newer version now requires it? And in addition the multi-view full...

Re: Considering the Rostock Max V2

One thing I would like to see is a print status statistic on the screen. Our other printers have a simple % shown to indicate how far along the print is. It's nice to be able to glance at the screen to get a good idea of where you are. Hi Dan! :) If you print from the SDcard then the % complete doe...

Re: Rostock MAX v2 Done!

I had similar issues with the Diablotek600 that came with my Rostock Max v2. I replaced it with an Antec HCG-620M and all of the issues vanished. It works great now. I opted for the 620M mainly because it's relatively small (it easily fit through the access hole at the bottom of the Rostock), it's p...

Re: Rostock Max Hollow Calibration Pyramid Challenge!

Here's my first attempt. Using translucent blue PLA filament at 202C and sliced with MatterSlice default settings printing at full speed. Result is some very thin stringing between some of the poles and a sharp point at the top, but otherwise it looks pretty good. I may try another with the heat tur...

I know this has probably been done a million times before, but I decided to stay up late last night and wrote a command-line tool to create g-code music files for delta 3D printers.
