Re: Rostock V2 Keeping Towers Square

That's not symtomatic of tower alignment, that's an issue related the the calibration. What you're seeing is the convex path (low at the edges, high towards the center) of a slightly off horizontal radius value.

Re: Rostock V2 Keeping Towers Square

If it's going out of square AFTER you squared it, it may be an indication that the melamine has been crushed and is allowing the towers to be loose. You're right that adding a larger washer behind the bolt head will get around this. Now that being said, is the amount of "out of square" that you're s...

Re: Noz: def, heater decoupled (RMV2)

If the RAMBo is good and the power supply is putting out 12V under load, you've got a wiring problem. A bad connection or a wire broken fully or partially inside the jacket.

Re: Extruder skipping

The motor should be ok - I would check to make sure that the wiring is ok. There might be a nearly-failed crimp at the connector end.

Re: Trick Laser MAX METAL Build

There's been some issue with attachments - roughly 165 or so have gone missing. Out of over 14k, that's not too bad. :) I don't know if Trick Laser is still selling 3D printer parts though.

Re: external motor for rambo board

The RAMBo board only supports stepper motors on the existing connectors along the bottom edge of the board - there's no more stepper driver chips for more than that.

Re: Bed constantly heats up - won't turn off.

Yes, the wire count was due to current capacity. A single 14ga or 12ga pair of wires from the power supply should be fine.

Yellow is + and black (as usual) is -.

Re: Please help this pilgrim the Y axis printing shorter than X axis! (RESOLVED)

Congrats on the fix! You might want to look into getting a set of the new carriages & ball/cup arms. It does make a big difference over the u-joint system and finicky melamine carriages. BTW, the reason the SeeMeCNC firmware is stuck on Arduino 1.6 is due to the code size. The HE280 code is pushing ...

Re: Upgrading V2, calibration cube problems

Cura ships with a v3 machine profile that should work for you. When you set up a new profile and pick the v3, see what it gives you for travel moves. If it's ~150 mm/sec, that should work fine for your v2.

Re: Is the Bowden Coupler removable from EZ struder adapters?

If you're talking about the bit that's got the push fit teeth inside of it, then yes that whole thing can be removed - it's threaded. Just remove the bowden tube from the EZ Struder and unscrew the fitting. Replacements can be found here: https://www.seemecnc.com/collections/parts-accessories/produc...

Here's what Andy says: "The way to know if it is a firmware issue or baord issue would be to wipe the EEPROM to clear out the firmware. Then if the bed stops heating, it was a firmware issue. If it keeps heating, it would be a board issue, or something on the ground side of the bed is shorted since ...

Re: Upgrading V2, calibration cube problems

The arms might be problematic if you're using the REALLY old arms with the metal axles.

I would suggest you give Cura a try and download one of the profiles from SeeMeCNC's git repository on github. Give it a shot and see how it goes!

Re: Duel extruder problem

There's tool change gcode that's missing. Check out the dual extrusion print of the bat on SeeMeCNC's git repo for Cura stuff. If you import that profile it'll correctly set up dual extrusion for you.

Re: Halp! Max v2 won't heat, shows "DEF" for temp

Check to make sure you didn't accidentally damage the thermistor on the bed. That would cause the "def" reading. Note that either one of the thermistors in the nozzle or the bed going bad will cause /both/ displays to show "def".
