Re: Trouble upgrading rostock max V2 to V3

Also, I am curious why you upgraded from v2 to v3? What were you looking to gain?

Thanks,

Re: Adjusting first layer

I have ordered a thermocouple, should be here in 2 days to find out how far off "norm" my hot end is running so I can map out the real temps. I have thought about tearing apart the bed again, perhaps tomorrow night if you don't find anything first. I need to print some successful items :) ...

Re: Adjusting first layer

Well, I squared up the towers (two were 1mm off or so), adjusted the endstop screws so that the tower endstep offset was under 4 on all 3, ran the probe "hot" and it didn't appear to help much with the thin side. 1st layer CalibrationRing1stlayer.jpg 2nd layer CalibrationRing2ndlayer.jpg I...

I was waiting for my Raspberry Pi to show up and install octoprint so I didn't have to install mattercontrol on my wifes laptop to look at firmware, but I caved last night to get the Tower offsets, so I will calibrate tonight the offsets and check for repeatability.

Re: Adjusting first layer

Used your gcode, but it is similar results to the circles above that I sliced. I started the first ring at 220/60 and upped the temp based on watching it to my standard 220 so the layer "meshed" rather than separate strings. calibrated cold. This is a hot bed calibration, and 210/60. Calib...

Re: HE280 Upgrade Completed - screen goes blank mid-print

Roughly 2" x 7" x 4.5" I was measuring it installed... The max has some clearance below it's bracket so it is closer to 2.3" or so installed. It was tough getting a tape measure around it installed, so if it is close you will want better measurements prior to ordering.

HE280 max temp?

So what is the HE280's max temp without the hot end? I assume it is somewhere around 245-247 like the Rostock Max v2?
Any word on when the Hi-Temp jet kit will be available?

Re: Rostock V3 Bed issue

I have reprogrammed the probe points to match yours, during the next recalibration I still had "head tilt". I also ran a 1st layer test after and am still having issues with bed leveling. I will continue to dig. The good news is any testing/builds in the center of the bed work well
