I don't have a failed print or filament reclaimer yet(please let me know where I may purchase a working reliable reclaimer) and i really don't like having a bunch of spools of ...

well considering I am a cad guy I will throw my 2 cents into the ring for parts creation. first, don't use autocad its just too much of a pain in the rear for 3d parts creation. personally I prefer rhinoceros 3d it can do normal shapes and more organic shapes without worry. plus you can do renderin...

Yes, absolutely. No PLA parts anywhere near the hotend - that's just asking for problems.



Got it... :)

Now which set of files do i use, Thingiverse or Repables?

Got the v6 on Monday, the MAX has been running ever since. So far so good. The ABS prints are looking sharp. I have not attempted PLA just yet. I would like to get my ABS prints out of the way just in case. Is the E3D v6 a direct replacement on the Rostock Max v2? Are then any modifications that ha...

I'm still using an older release of Cura and at the time (if I'm not mistaken) it never did connect with the rambo. Newer versions may be different, but I haven't moved up in the releases.

Printable radius

What is the maximum setting for the radius under the printer shape tab in Repetier for the Rostock Max V2? Following the manual, it is set for 135mm. However, that does not allow me to drop an 8" piece on the bed without overhang. Obviously when I increase that setting to say 160 then the model...

I just found in DesignSpark that if i create a surface that has an angle and join that using the UpTo command, the item will drop in repetier at the angled position.

Item won't drop flat in Repetier

I'm using DesignSpark for my STL file creations.
Occasionally if I load a project, repetier won't place it flat on the table in the program and slices that error.

I created a octagonal 8 sided object and when dropped in repetier it rests on one edge.

Any ideas?

Thank you for the pictures and instructions.
I spoke with John of SeeMeCNC a few minutes ago and he set me straight.
I guess being up at 2:00AM as old as I am makes things look different.

Lol, I was looking for a round hole.

I'm loving this assembly way too much.
