Re: Dermot's RMv2 Build

A serious suggestion; cut a couple of test/education/calibration melamine pieces into the unused parts of the sheets and then, in the instructions, encourage first-time builders to experiment with them first to get a feel for how hard to tighten and when damage is likely to start taking place. Might...

Re: Dermot's RMv2 Build

Saturate the split with superglue. Should help keep it from spreading. Actually that's a bloody excellent idea! Disassemble the mount, saturate the buggered spot in a suitably watery adhesive, cover with plastic and wood on either side and clamp like a MoFo in a vise to flatten it out as it sets. I...

Re: Dermot's RMv2 Build

Right, mistake corrected. That only took about two hours :-/

Over-torqued my EzStrudel a bit putting it back on and split the melamine around the nut (sigh) but it's still holding so we'll hope for the best. So far the captive nuts in the melamine is my very least favorite bit of the kit.

Re: Dermot's RMv2 Build

Right, the sticky stepper will have to wait. EzStrudel is assembled with replacement part, everything looks good. Everything but the discovery that I installed the damned top plate upside down. Intentionally. As in I looked at the laser engraved letters and thought 'hmm, they must go on the bottom s...

Re: Accelerometer Probe Demo

It seems to me like a nylon nozzle cover would solve the 'uncomfortably hard tap' problem. It doesn't have to actually attach to the nozzle itself either, just be centered where the nozzle is centered, and be of a very specific thickness. If SeeMeCNC or E3D wanted to, they could actually turn a clip...

Question; I notice, having mounted the carriages and adjusted the tension on the belts (yay! progress!), that one of my servos has a slight 'tight spot' in rotation. It's subtle, and with the belt tensioned up correctly it's not obvious (much more apparent with a loose belt), but if I articulate tha...

Re: Dermot's RMv2 Build

Hmm. I must have done something to peeve the injection molding gods. My EZ-struder looks to have been either mis-molded or misassembled; It came in the baggie with the clear cover screw tightened down but the cover itself rotated slightly so it was clamped on top of the locating pegs. image3.JPG ima...

Re: Almost completed but a fastener problem

As with virtually everything else manufactured the screws are most likely made in China and the quality control is virtually non existent which explains why some of the screws have bad threads. The lengths of the screws could probably given a second look at by SeeMeCNC and if they need to be suppli...

Re: Rostock Max V2 Streaming via Octoprint

I don't mean to alarm you but it just stopped printing and started sending "Communication timeout during printing, forcing a line
Send: N1096039 M105*35" commands.

For the record, I don't think it was me, I was just watching.... :?

Re: Almost completed but a fastener problem

Same exact problem with my included hardware for the fan and the PSU as well (minus the Onyx bed, I haven't got that far yet though it sounds like I probably will) I marked the problem with the fan mount down to overly aggressive nylocks locking up on the thread. I got one of the 4 to go on properly...

Re: 60-70C Heated Enclosure

That is an _excellent_ piece of work. I will likely steal most of your idea verbatim when it comes time to build mine! The only component I can see missing would be a controlled fume exhaust port and fan, which of course is somewhat antithetical to the whole heated-chamber thing.

Ok, yes, confirmed, I've been working 4.18. The heated plate wiring SNAFU was me reading the bag-BOM rather than focusing on your instructions.

Well heck. We've hit a snag. The first 15 hours of the build have gone very well (and been great fun), albeit rather more slowly than you'd expect.
