Re: Kraken thread

Very cool! I was eyeballing that about a week ago, but figured I should learn what I haven't got to run already... first. :oops: :oops:

Calibrating: how far to take it?

Ok, Got through my first round of Calibration. Went pretty well until I crashed the head trying to print. (still needs to be resolved). Got me considering though, Calibration appears to be a moderately regular thing. So I dreamed up a little gizmo to help with the style of calibrating suggested in t...

Re: I'll just drop this here for now

Just looking at the photos, I can see a reduced melamine part count, taller build volume and a stiffer top-end design. g. Looks like the skates cannot travel all the way to the top. The "bracket" holding onto the towers extends below the top plate. Overall build size looks to be pretty cl...

Would the nozzles extend down far enough to clear the effector?

Re: Adjusting Tower Rotation with Alpha A/B/C in EEPROM?

Wonder if my laser rangefinder would work? Though, it is more of an architectural scale, so probably not precise enough.

Re: Crash and Burn!

That is all I can think of too... Thanks for confirming it.

but, strange that I had it working all throughout the Calibration. I think I only changed the extruder steps/mm.

David, is this the same as your avatar? Yes, but I have redesigned a few things that aren't shown in the avitar. It will look similar but the manipulator has been replace with a suction dredge/separator module that isn't very appealing to look at... The uglier the breed, the more I like 'em. (Full ...

Re: Vertical Banding Issue

one thing that might be able to be done to test the rounding error hypothesis without having to do all the math... Have the firmware send back the X,Y values to a host terminal.. Can the Host software be modified easily to accept and display such data? Or, is it possible to send basic gCode commands...

Not tonight. Ran the Tests, and after my initial BH moment was over, all worked as intended. Tomorrow night, Install .91 firmware, and Calibrate. If only I didn't have to get up in 5.5 hrs I'd be at it. Gene read me like a book though... I was pretty giddy and dancing around with from my first G28! ...

First, the LCD Isn't lit up. I will search for that in a moment. Rambo has power, and there is at least some communication with the r-Host. Second, when I try to. Do an M119 It does nothing. But there appears to be a command suck in the que just prior. Gives me the installed firmware, then Printed f...
