Re: OpenDACT(Delta Automatic Calibration Tool) - For Repetie

Would something like the below do for making a probe for calibration purposes, or is it not high enough in resolution or accuracy? I know it is not top notch quality, but I have no further purpose for it. "Good enough is the best!" ;-) [img]http://hennekens.info/rostock/dialindicator-a.png...

Re: web based Delta printer least-squares calibration calcul

After probing all my points, I converted the millimeters back to steps for my x, y, and z offsets How did you probe? Did you do that using a probe, or could I use the "z-height calibration with paper below the nozzle"-method? And why do you need to set it to reprep, as it actually has rep...

Re: RamBo Fuses

Those little f*ckers are hell to change... I tried soldering a "handle" on one of the ends, but that made the holder on the board so loose that now they won't fit without an extra drop of solder. Tried to bend a bit without success... Someone know what they are called generally? Have to ch...

Re: Aluminum and carbon fiber E3d V6 mount. RELEASED!

First time I stumble upon this thread. I must admit that it is beautiful and would buy it in an instance if it were available locally (the Netherlands), but I am afraid that postage would cost almost the same as the part itself, as counts for a lot of other parts for sale for this machine... But nev...

Tension

Hi,
I am wondering if my timing belts are too loose. I can easily pull them (all three equally) almost 1,5 cm out of the T slot.
Is that too loose? Is there a way to measure the tension?

Max V2 max height?

Through 3dhubs I get an order for a design that is 389mm in height. My V2 with the slightly shorter E3D hot end shows a total height of 398mm after Z calibration and homing. Bu I assume that for making some decent diameter (around 130mm) I have to take the radius of the delta construction into accou...

@ IMBoring25:
Can you elaborate on the bug? If I set the slicer to slic3r, slicing takes wwwaaaayyyy more time, and after print start the head crashes off the side of the printbed... Has this bug you mentioned anything to do with that?

Sorry to hike this older thread, but I always like to search for answers before dropping questions ;-) Even a simple machine like the Up Mini buffers it's printjob to the machines memory.
