Re: It just quits!

Yes, loosen or remove the LCD display, make sure your fan wires exit right or left so they won't get in the way of pushing through the opening from the outside in. The part has a small flange on the outside.
This did not cure the quit problem 100% but 99% is very nice!

Re: Auto-Calibration - $100 Bounty and Bragging Rights

I will say it gain, spray wet glass, squeegee some HD alum foil to the glass, clip lead to hot end, clip lead to foil, plug one into Arduino digital inputs other to ground (are we hosed on the Rambo or does it have inputs?) ... do rough manual calibration to determine about where glass is so it can ...

Re: The "PartDaddy" Large Format 3D Printer

Re: Cooling solutions for RAMBo - anybody have pictures?

I feel your pain, Having gone through something similar I would point out two things in cooling; a fan without a shroud or duct of some kind in free air is very inefficient, lots of recirculation. Second that a fan within a mostly closed compartment will do a nice job of homogenizing the air within ...

Re: It just quits!

Success! 8 hr print without a hitch. We'll call the new fan in the door plus wire arrangement the cure for our quitting problem. Previously I had taken all of the slack in the wires into the front bay with the board. I un-bundled each wire and pulled it back to whichever bay it originated in and coi...

Re: It just quits!

Oh so close :(
About 80%, it was going so well. Then the part got knocked loose and game over.
Will try again tomorrow.

Re: It just quits!

Thanks Bubba, Went with the direct to PS option. Started with BIG fan and watched the Onyx temp slowly drop, pulled the plug on that one. Plugged in the 40mm one and just stuffed it in the rats nest of wires -hey I am testing! 50% into a 8 hr print and still going. Door wide open. I noticed it initi...

Update: moved to kitchen, back on granite counter top instead of floor. Ran it with LCD door wide open, Printed last part to fail. Came out fine.

Re: It just quits!

Tinyhead, It's a brand new machine.John said it the latest boards incorporate a measure to prevent the prior static issue so that should be good.
Going to add a board fan and look at the wiring today.
