Re: Smart LCD Adapter - draft

If I recall correctly, the RAMPS 1.4 adapter board doesn't even come close to fitting the RAMBo properly. That's why I built and documented it the way I did.

Re: Mhackney's Rostock Max

Jameco sells the model # you listed, but it's the three wire version. If memory serves, third (signal) wire is a PWM output, correct?

Re: Mhackney's Rostock Max

Found this - should work well!

The big deal with the fan on the upper section of the hot end is due to heat creep. The upper section of the hot end will begin to heat up and cause PLA to jam HARD. Can do all kinds of evil things when that happens. :(

Re: spray the hairspray?

BTW, if you're printing with PLA, an even better solution is a 10:1 mix of Elmers White glue. (10 parts water, 1 part glue) I was told about this by a nice gent named "gauanu" in the #reprap IRC channel. I mixed some up in a 2oz "spritz" bottle I got from Rite-Aide and it works a...

Re: Are you happy with your MAX ?

What specifically needs an update?

I'm writing a "supplement" that will cover installing the Onyx heated bed on a machine that's had the older one installed previously.

Re: spray the hairspray?

Don't use a paper towel - it will leave little fibers behind. Spray it on a crumpled up plastic grocery bag and then wipe it on the glass.

Re: Mhackney's Rostock Max

Basically, he is suggesting scaling the values by seven ninths - 7/9ths. That will make the circle smaller and presumably small enough to fit on the smaller heated bed. Make sense? The "ths" bit was missing and rendered it senseless. I write software for a living. If it's not specific, my...

Any scale will retain the points in a circle which is what matters.


Um, that doesn't make any sense. :) Multiply them by 7 divided by 9?

Re: Mhackney's Rostock Max

mhackney, will the calibration points you list fit on a Phebe I bed area? If not, I'll adjust them until they do fit and then add both sets of points to a new rev of the manual.

Thanks for researching this so thoroughly!

Re: Perimeter detached from infil

The fitting you're after on the rods should be loose to the point where their own weight will make them drop to the vertical, but NOT so much as you've got any side-to-side play, correct?

Re: Rostock MAX Assembly Manual

Ah, ok. Now I get it. When you've got a dozen balls in the air, something is bound to get dropped.

Unfortunately, I really can't correct the photos as I'm not going to tear my machine apart to take pics of the parts. :) I'll make a note in the text though. Thanks and sorry for the oversight!

Re: Mhackney's Rostock Max

I'll agree that the Steve's Extruder is an animal. About 3 hours into a PLA test print, the filament jammed (I suspect the PEEK hit the sweet spot temp for PLA and it was all over but the crying at that point) and because I was stupidly fiddling with the extruder tension and had it too high, the dri...

Re: Teflon insulator / nozzle head

It sounds to me like your temperatures are way too high. Have you double-checked the hot-end temperature with a standard temperature probe to see how it compares to what the firmware is seeing?

On Tuesday I got my best print yet out of the machine. My infill/perimeter issue is basically fixed. I went back to square one and re-calibrated the entire machine. I started out by using the new tower base points (these are listed in the current rev. of the assembly manual in the calibration sectio...

Re: LCD Installation Guide

That means that the machine is going to operate at 100% of the setting you used to slice a model. If you turn the knob clockwise, it will speed the printer up. Turning it counter-clockwise will slow it down.
