Anyone get any closer to a S3D profile for the V3? I'm not a big fan of MatterControl.

Did you try the one I posted? Are you having problems with it? It's working fine for me.

24V Upgrade to my Max V3

Most of this is copied from another thread. Just putting it here to help others. After building my Max V3, I was surprised how weak the bed heating performance is in a stock config. Mine would never go over @95C without a washcloth on the bed. You can turn the power supply output voltage up to 14V a...

Re: Running the Rambo at higher than 12v?

Before doing a PS upgrade on my V3, I first turned the voltage up to around 14.5. There's a voltage drop in the control FETs and the wiring to the bed, so that was the value which resulted in just under 15A on the bed fuse circuit. It mostly worked, but sometimes, the system would not power on corre...

Re: v3 all assembled, firmware loaded, and.....

So far, from my experience, I would definitely not re-run the script unless there's a reason to (like you moved the printer to a new location or had a first-layer problem).

Some auto-calibration runs are definitely better than others, so if you have a good one, keep it.

Re: Rostock Max v3 settings for Simplify3D

Yeah, I ended up turning the retraction settings down significantly. I was printing some of this barrel ( m ) for testing and the built-in retraction values for a Max V2 in simplify3d left a pretty big seam gap. Other than that and adjusting the build area, I just did standard tweaks. I also did a s...

Re: unlevel bed

I added a #6 washer under each of the hold-down clips so I could snug them down and have an even tension on each to (hopefully) reduce the non-planar forces on the bed.

Stepper motor dampers

Has anyone installed them on a Max V3 yet? I bought some and had them on hand when I first built my V3, but since the belt tensioning is done through the motor mounts, I chickened out and didn't install them. It would probably work OK, but you end up with only one screw preventing the belts from loo...

Re: V3 PEEK Fan Running Constantly

One problem is that the I2C protocol is pretty susceptible to data errors from external electrical sources, especially with long wiring. I think that may be why the probing is always done cold, so the heater is not turning on and off.

Re: My solution to heatbed temp- insulating the bottom!

This looks like a great, simple mod. Thanks! I think I'll do it to help keep the base cooler and reduce power consumption, even though I already upgraded my PS and my bed will now heat to 100C in around 3 minutes.

Re: Part fan modification for tight enclosure

It wouldn't work due to the arms. They could be up even higher and in more and facing striaght up though ( I think, not certain if there's enough room for that ). Something like that could definitely work if you made 3 different shrouds with different lengths. The extruder fan is blowing most of the...

Re: Hardware build completed in two solid days

I used some 3MM machine screws with nyloc nuts to mount my rambo fan.

Now that my enclosure is complete, I'm thinking of moving it and blocking the lower vents to get fresh air from the outside instead of the build area.
I already did something like that on the bottom.

Re: Bed can't hit 100C?

If you do the same, make sure you get a high-quality MOSFET-based SSR. Don't buy a Fotek or SHZE. They have huge internal resistance and will heat up and fail, even with a large heatsink, thermal paste and good airflow. When they fail, they fail in the "on" state and could easily cause a ...

Part fan modification for tight enclosure

I'm working on an enclosure for my Max V3. The stock part fan setup provides a massive amount of cooling, but it also hangs significantly outside the extents of the base plate at full travel. I wanted to build a nice, compact enclosure but the fan setup prevents that. As a fix, I made some fan shrou...

Re: Raspberry pi connection and operation

I tried both Astroprint and Octoprint when I got my first 3D printer a few months ago. Astroprint is much easier to set up and probably good if you want to use their slicer. The biggest drawback of Astroprint is that its video streaming only supports a very limited set of client devices. Octoprint i...

What is the question? The number one thing is to make sure you remove the metal tabs from the limit switches before you assemble the top base plate.

Re: Powering the Raspberry Pi addon to the V3

I was able to get a 2-pin JST connector onto the +5 and gnd pins of the "Analog" pin header right next to the display adapter board to power mine.

I didn't buy the kit because I already had an r pi 3 sitting around looking for a job, so I don't know what they recommend.

I think I'm going to make some fan shrouds and move the layer fans up and in. Then I should get nearly full size with the tight enclosure.
