Re: G92 E0 causes a lot of extrusion.

Or just ignore all parameters on a G28 command if it's a delta configuration. I see no functional benefit to homing a single tower and it's begging for an eventual crash. If you want to center the effector before homing that would be better accomplished with a G1 X0 Y0.

I would remove the X0 from the G28 command.
Yes, this is the default end G code for the Slic3r slicer.
I changed it to a G28 Z0 and the problem went away.
It doesn't need a parameter at all. On a delta it's normally rendered as just G28.

Re: G92 E0 causes a lot of extrusion.

That does sound like the issue. A single-axis home operation is likely something not really considered in the firmware development.

Well, it was both under load and basically in a greenhouse, but I left my first PETG dash cam mount installed on a summer afternoon and it failed quite spectacularly.

Re: Acetone not working on ABS?

Do you also have raw filament? I once had a print that cracked a little too much for its application and just held the part under the hot end and turned the extruder drive manually to fill the cracks...Basically the same thing as those 3D printing pens you see but more improvisational.

Re: v3 Maximum PSP Voltage Setting

Without running the bed across an SSR, you're probably looking at melting down the bed terminals on the Rambo if you haven't already. There have been a few who have done so without overdriving the voltage.

That should work.

Actually, you can print in either mode, provided you (or the start gcode generated by your slicer) set(s) the appropriate mode for the setting you're using in the slicer.

Re: Print Failure After So Many Layers

The stepper motors are not closed-loop systems, so once they wind up somewhere other than where the electronics think they are, the machine will indeed have a mind of its own. They can wind up in the wrong place if the nozzle hits something or if there's binding in the mechanism somewhere, either of...

If it's right at the center of the bed and gets progressively higher as you move away from the center in any direction or vice versa, that should be horizontal radius.

Re: Can someone tell me how to correct this print

What is leading you to have the 0.95 extrusion multiplier? That's just a fudge-factor that will tell it to do all its calculations and then spit out 95% of the calculated plastic, which will cause this problem, along with changing other things. Have you calibrated your extruder drive by disconnectin...

Download Slic3r as a standalone program and import the gcode. The integration of the bed shape settings in MC still isn't correct.

I can't speak for other slicers, but Slic3r has a functionality called Modifiers that allows you to specify a second STL in the same coordinate system and treat it as a separate volume with its own settings, so you don't need 100% infill where you don't need it.

Re: Next Printer?

With those criteria you'll probably have to scratch build something or heavily modify a kit.

I'm kicking around the idea of a modified D-Bot that would meet those criteria, but the D-Bot isn't enclosed in stock form and nobody is kitting it.

Re: Rostock Max V3 Build with minor mods

To the best of my knowledge, it doesn't CONTROL the current, it just has a current LIMIT (more than 15A will blow the fuse). As far as I know, it just switches the supplied voltage on those pins, and with a bed that approximates 1 ohm, you'll drive a current approximately equal to the supply voltage...

The screw terminal for the bed heat is already borderline for the current at 12V and will not support properly-sized wiring with the ampacity to run a stock Onyx at significantly more.

Re: Was shipped a convex-shaped heat bed. Same with the replacement

Do you have a reliable reference for flat or is this analysis based on how the effector is tracking across the bed? Have you calibrated horizontal radius?
