New layer cooling fan & shroud for Rostock Max V2

I tried to find something like this with the search function in the forum, but didn't succeed. So here we are: A new cooling fan and shroud for my Rostock Max V2. I'm very satisfied with the performance - as cooling is much better than the stock fan. Hence my prints with PLA come out great, especial...

Re: Bed Leveling Woes

Check whether your glass plate is still flat. Mine seems rather tilted - and I don't know why. It's just like a 'chinese hat' - higher in the center. To solve this I could did some calibration as you did but it keeps changing, especially when heating the bed. Now I've decided to go this route: I ord...

Re: Rostock Max V2 noise reduction

There's no belt alignment issue because you move the gear to offset the thickness of the damper. g. Nope - nothing at all. I was concerned about this too, but the gear rotates accurate on the "shorter" motor axle. Print outs come out well - or even better. At least they are being printed ...

Re: Rostock Max V2 noise reduction

Thanks to all for your answers. Qdeathstar: For me definitely worth the time when looking at the result. It appears that the hot end moves much smoother over the printed part, it literally flies since there is really almost zero noise. I get the impression that printing result is better too - it rea...

Rostock Max V2 noise reduction

Since I have my Rostock Max V2, I was annoyed by it's noise during printing. A overnight print job was difficult - my wife complained about the noise. Now I have installed some motor vibration dampers I've got from here: m The result is marvellous - the noise is much reduced. Now the main noise is c...

Re: How to go to a negative Z

Thanks Eaglezsoar for bumping!:-) It's not Mattercontrol that doesn't do anything as I can see the command G1 Z-0.1 being sent on Terminal. The Rostock Max V2 or most probably Repetier prevent me from doing this via a Terminal command. Of course the knob would be possible but via the buttons on Matt...

How to go to a negative Z

In order to do some calibration stuff, I'd like to move the nozzle to a negative Z value. (e.g. when at 0 the head is for example still 1mm above the bed). It seems that I can't move the head lower - the command is simply not executed (G1 Z-0.1 or clicking Z- on the controls). The Z position value h...

Re: So after weeks of scratching my head...

I struggled for months trying to get it calibrated before realising I had the same issue. I ended up removing the snow flake completely, fixed the onyx on spacers through the same holes. Also holding the bed onto the onyx, which was also warped, with 3 big blobs of silicone. Was intended as a tempo...

Re: Height difference between hot and cold bed

Why that DeltaCon? The silicon for sure withstands higher temperatures than the bed ever would have. (Like never above 120°C). This would be no issue for silicon - what problems do you think would occur?

Re: Height difference between hot and cold bed

Read my posts on this - the bed is constrained in 6 places around the perimeter. Most materials expand when heated to these temperatures. That expansion needs to be accommodated in some way, in this case by a bowing movement. I posted last week about this and the benefit of using 3 oval holes to at...

Re: Calibration results?

Ok, cool. A ball that rotates during the moves? Still I would suggest to do the lifts between individual moves - you might add a few steps on each axes do get more values between. If you have even light friction between the gauge ball head and the bed, you will even have undesired forces from the si...
