Re: Teflon insulator / nozzle head

I've got the same issue - old style nozzle.

Every time I change filament, I have to change the inner liner as well because the portion that's inside the nozzle has been necked down sufficiently to prevent filament from moving through it.

Re: Checking extruder

Window tinting works well for ABS. Your local auto parts store should have it.

Re: Perimeter detached from infil

With the Rostock MAX, I _seriously_ doubt belt lash is a significant contributing factor. Mine have been tight as guitar strings from day one and I've got (or HAD!) horrible infill problems. I printed my best infill yet the other day. I used Cura with an infill overlap of .8 (80%). The Slic3r guys r...

Re: LCD Installation Guide

Matt, you're quite welcome! You'll enjoy the LCD, it's fun to play with. Note that if you want to use the machine while it's disconnected from a host computer, you'll need to change a jumper on the RAMBo so that it's powered by the PC power supply and not the USB port. I seem to recall John saying s...

Re: Rostock MAX Assembly Manual

Dan, I'd agree it's easier, but I'm trying to keep the mechanical assembly separated as much as possible from the electrical. Twisting the wires instead of using fishing line makes the task (even post final-assembly) much easier regardless. Thanks for that tip!

Re: Highcooley's Rostock Max

I printed your duct today Highcooley. It turned out really nice, but the support arm is pretty ratty. I still have a huge infill problem, but other than that it turned out nicely. Now I just need some PLA as an excuse to mount it on the effector. It's a very nice design! m m I printed it in ABS (Mak...

Re: Highcooley's Rostock Max

Inspect your belts! I had that same dust collecting and it turned out a sharp set of gears was eating the belts!

I don't know that it's backlash. The belts on my machine are tight enough to play Jazz Bass on. :) There's no binding going on either. I'm at my wits end at this point. :(

Re: New Rostock Max User (Has a problem)

When I get a chance I'll get the assembly guide updated with new calibration instructions - the paper method is a lot simpler to do than the caliper method.

Re: LCD Smart Adapter

Take a look at my wiring guide - it takes the mystery out of the whole mess. Ribbon cables are just nasty to deal with when you're having to move lines around, that's why I'm going to build a dedicated harness once the parts arrive. The little sub-board included with the LCD is for the RAMPS board I...
