Re: Dino Jam!

I successfully printed the dino head! I changed the motor current values to the suggested versions in the source code. The stepper does run a little cooler now. I think that this was the actual issue. I reduced my retract speed from 20mm/sec to 15mm/sec. My retraction length is 2mm (I doubt this was...

I've tried printing one at a time and two at a time and the failures are the same. IMG_1432.JPG IMG_1433.JPG The ezs...

Re: 100k NTC Thermistor 3950

I did this today. I thought that the thermistor was a ATC Semitec 104-GT2. I HOPE I AM WRONG -- SEE BELOW. The file to edit is configuration.h You need to find the line that starts with "#define EXT0_TEMPSENSOR_TYPE" and set the value to 8. (Or the actual type of the thermistor from the ta...

Re: Setting PID on Hotend Properly

Did you wrap your hot end with tape? If not, wrap it. The old instructions don't mention this. The new ones do.

Re: Hot end temp not getting to temp for ABS

I had this same issue. The version of the manual I built from didn't mention the tape. Wrapping the hot end with tape fixed things.

Thanks.

Re: [NEW! 12Feb14] Rostock MAX Assembly Manual

Some corrections for the next manual: Typo on Page 34: nut to fit, try inserting it from the other side of the part. The laser kerf results in a slight cut angle that makes one side of a cut area a tiny bit wider than the other. This will help get the nuts inserted. If they're too lose , you can use...
