Re: LED Ring Snap Mount for Rostock MAX/Orion

Where are you getting power for the ring? Tapping into the fan leads?

Issues with printing

I have my Rostock V2 calibrated as well as I can (having done the calibration routine until I can do it with my eyes closed . Can anyone point me in the correct direction as to what setting would be causing the layers to print with these gaps? The attached pic is the bottom layer of a partially prin...

Re: Does the rostock max v2 come with a screw identification

Here is what I found that worked perfectly. I purchased one of these from Harbor Freight (m) - then labeled each compartment from 1 - 24. I then took the inventory sheet that comes with the hardware kit, and put a compartment number in front of all the line items - the inventory sheet will tape into...

1st print issue - PEEK fan Shroud.

After performing the various pre-print calibrations, I printed the PEEK fan shroud in ABS according to the manual. Everything went fine as far as the print function. Inserting the fan into the shroud is a very tight fit -so much so that if I force it in, the shroud binds the sides of the fan and the...

Re: Missing LED

Final follow-up. I did send them an email and yesterday a box arrived with the missing part (in addition to some not missing parts ) - 2nd day UPS - above and beyond in the customer service arena in my opinion. I wish all companies stood behind their products this well. Awesome service - thanks guys...

Re: Missing LED

I think the resistor included in the Onyx hot plate kit is a 4.7k Ohm 1%.

It appears to be a 5 band resistor (these things get harder and harder to see ;-))

Re: Missing LED

I did report it to their tech support email - but never heard back. So, like a kid with a new toy on Christmas but no batteries, I thought I would source one locally so as not to delay my build :D

Missing LED

My kit is missing the red LED form the Onyx packet. Can anyone give me the value of the LED? I picked up a 12v 1.5mA w/integrated resistor from Rat Shack - but I am not sure if an integrated resistor will play havoc with the Onyx mounted resistor. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, -Ge...
