Re: E3V6 Constantly clogging

dsl158, Did you resolve your clogging issue with the E3D V6? I had the same problem and seemed to have resolved it. 1. Temperature - I set it at 230c; however, I think I can go lower than that, I just haven't lowered the starting temp yet 2. Bowden Tube - If you haven't already, replace the Rostock ...

Re: New Rostock Max v2 owner :)

Howdy and welcome, I'm a new Rostock Max V2 owner as well; it came to life around on April 1st and it is a blast. I haven't had any major issues with the printer. Calibration, while time consuming, does work. The other thing I discovered is that even a little air movement around the hot plate was en...

Re: holes not translating and other issue

Howdy Jeff,

Post up your stl or skp file here; there may be some issues with the construction that the experienced modellers can identify. Also, I've noticed that some of the downloaded models are, well, pretty, but not well suited to printing.

Re: OctoPrint Stream

Looking good. Thought about doing something like this myself. Would be neat to have a forum addon or page that showed when a print was live and anyone could tune in and watch. Thanks, I'm still trying to dial in the print settings. This is all new territory for me, but it seems to be going smoothly...

OctoPrint Stream

Howdy all, Playing with OctoPrint and Rostock Max v2. I've had it assembled for a little under a week and I must say the machine and the tools are incredibly easy to setup. Printing the top of a case for my Raspberry Pi 2 that is currently controlling the printer. <<print is completed - redacted>> P...

Re: Alamo-Bot Build

Day #7 - Build completed and first print came out incredible! It is really quite amazing to see this printer go to work and start printing. While building it was a challenge, it wasn't a frustrating challenge. It was a great deal of fun. Even better is when the first print 'just works'. Kudos to the...

Re: Alamo-Bot Build

It....... Lives.......

Installed a Corsair CX750M power supply

It has a modular cables, meaning, fewer wires behind the PSU. Downside? All the wires are black, so trying to find 6 yellow and 6 black is REALLY challenging and you have to be very careful.

Re: Alamo-Bot Build

Day #6 - Finished getting everything wired up and connected, and put the finishing parts on the printer. Went to do the 'smoke test' and no power. ATX power supply fan isn't turning on when the switch is turned on. I checked the switch to make sure it was working and it checks out good. I disconnect...

Re: Alamo-Bot Build

Day #5 - Got the mechanical build completed today. It actually looks like a printer now. Next up is to get all the electronics wired up and installed. I expect I'll be powering it up sometime on Sunday.

Re: Alamo-Bot Build

Day #3 - So, not the fastest builder in the world, but only getting about 1.5 to 2 hours per day to work on it. Got the Onyx bed wired up and installed on the base. Getting the components soldered to the Onyx was surprising painless and everything took the on the first try. Helps to have a good sold...

Re: Alamo-Bot Build

Day #2 - Got the stepper motors, upright supports installed and to top of the base completed. The only part about the instructions here was the orientation of the wires from the stepper motors. I had to take one apart and rotate the stepper motor 180 degrees to get the wires where I wanted them. I s...
