Re: Trick Laser MAX METAL Build

I plan to do the following: 1. place the duet and due panel on top 2. I'm using a dauderdruckerplatte that weighing in at + 1kg. so I think FSR is out off the question, so I go for David Crockers IR probe So I end up with power cables to motors, controller etc up in to legs, and 4 cables for SSR and...

Re: Trick Laser MAX METAL Build

Mounting the steppers up top - if you place the controller up top too - you have a long run for the heated bed and thermistor (heavy cabling too) down to the bottom. That to me is a primary consideration as this heavy wire is harder to conceal and you should keep the length as short as possible. Th...

Re: Trick Laser MAX METAL Build

I'm also working on a MAX Metall build, this thread have been very useful to find out how I will build it. After a lot of reading I have desided to turn the frame upside down, to get all the steppers at the top end. The reason is cable logistics, far fewer cables to route inside the vertigal members...

Re: "Dauerdruckplatte" PEI coated Aluminum bed

Now I have reconfigured my powersupply setup and done a test run with the glassbed PEI combo most of us use. I used my lab PSU to power only the heatbed circut on the RAMBO. I set Cirrent limit to 14.95A and let it run free on voltage. First I set it to 100C wich it reached much faster than stock se...

Re: "Dauerdruckplatte" PEI coated Aluminum bed

I have several variantion of PEI bed's I can use. I have the orginila glass plate with an 0.8mm pei sheet attached to it. it's possible to print at a setting of 85C, but if you go a little hihger to 90C you get a more stable adhesion to the PEI sheet. I also found that the PEI is an pretty good insu...

Re: "Dauerdruckplatte" PEI coated Aluminum bed

I plan to use an 320w lab psu where I can Limit the current and Voltage. I plan to take this in stages just to se what I need before I order a new PSU. When I reach this higher temp on my print bed I will also go back and test the PEI tape I have, it's have the same carracteristics as the daudedruck...

Re: Horizontal Banding, or Z-Ribbing investigated.

I also have a little of this in my prints, have only been printing ABS with high heat.

After reading this thread, I wonder if this can be fixed with an UPS with filtering, or is it down to aPSU with little filtering after the switcing action ?

Re: Repetier firmware 0.92.8

One thing I had to change from installing the original Rostock MAX v2 version to the 0.92.8 version is that you need to have the latest arduino IDE with the latest lib's installed. then I vent on configuratet the firmware with the configartion tool on repetiers site. thenit compiled without problems.

Re: "Dauerdruckplatte" PEI coated Aluminum bed

Yes, thats correct, on my glass plates with attached PEI, it works at 85C.

So to get this Dauerdruckerplatte to work I ordered a 300mm dia 500w 220VAC silicon heater. I think I can controll this thru a SSD relay.

Yes, it do use the configuration.h

There is some new options as far as I have noticed. But I turned up the frequens on the signals to the stepper motors, then the noise level from the printer dropped a little.

I have just done this, and also thrown in the PT100 upgrade kit from E3D so I got a far better reading of the temperature on the hotend. One thing you should do is to make a new nargile from the top to the effektor assembly, where you route the bowden tube alongside the cables, then they won't devel...
