If you can settle for silicone, Keenovo will custom make you one.

Re: Any new beds for me to consider?

I bought a 110v Keenovo heater pad a couple weeks ago. I was a bit hesitant to spend the $65 for it, but after having it in hand, it's actually carefully made and I'm pleased with it. The plan is to design an aluminum bed to stick it to, and incorporate pads for FSRs and some kind of glass clamp to ...

Re: Power Issue

If you had to remove the ribbon cables to reach connections for the upgrade, make sure that they're back on properly. Cable A and B can be switched with each other, the connectors could be upside down, or you could even have the connector offset by a pin from left to right.

Re: Firmware Updates?

Agreed. These aren't ethernet devices that need security patches or OS updates, it's a machine more than a computer. Check the release notes on GitHub, and don't worry about an update unless you are trying to solve a problem that one of the updates addressed.

Re: Must have parts for Accelerometer upgrade?

There's a pre-made wiring harness that will make your life easier. You'll still have to do some splicing (because the V3 electronics are up top now) but it's much cleaner to not have to worry about that part. Otherwise, your list seems pretty straight forward and complete.

Re: Applying PEI

This may be a silly idea, but... How crazy does it sound to try applying the sheet while it's completely submerged? You could find a cake pan or something like that and easily mix water and a drop of dish soap to make a chamber to do the application in... I might have to try this on my next one.

Re: Guide for setting acceleration and jerk. Does one exist?

I could definitely reduce the amount of noise in the print, but it added about 25% to the duration of each print compared to the time estimated by the slicer. I didn't pursue it all the way to perfection, but I did learn that you have to reduce the values considerably to make an improvement, so I de...

Re: Barrel fan blocker

I'm guessing that it mounts below the heatsink to keep air from hitting the print. I've had experiences before where air from the hotend fan impacts the quality of an ABS print because it's only coming from one side. My fix has been to mount the E3D heater block 'away' or downwind from the fan so th...

Re: Filament choices for outdoor applications

I can attest that PLA will sag outdooors. I designed some mosquito traps (m) that have gained an angle from the weight of 10ish ounces of fluid and the heat of the sun over a summer. PLA will melt and warp if left in a car, as well. I'd vote for a higher temp material. ABS or Nylon would do great. P...

You're not thinking fourth dimensionally Every straight line move on a delta machine is a triangulation of all 3 motors moving at the same time.

Re: Rostock Max V2 heated bed short

A loose connection will cause arcing, and that will heat up and melt a connector like this as well. Anytime you're in there, it's worth making sure that those things are snug.

Re: Optimum layer height vs Nozzle size

I'm not sure how steps per mm relates to the equation, but nozzle diameter and layer height are definitely related. You can go as thin as you want, but I wouldn't go thicker than about 75% of your nozzle diameter for layer height. You can, but you'll end up with deeper ridges between your layers. I'...

Re: Shift in layers/ voltage fluctuation

If you've got an ATX power supply, some of them will regulate the overall voltage of the supply based on the load on the 5V rail. Not all supplies do this, but some do. You can put a load resistor on one of the 5V leads (going to ground, of course) and smooth out some of that power fluctuation. I di...

This doesn't work like the way it does on a Cartesian machine... There isn't 1 stepper motor per axis, so adjusting the motor we call X to change the X axis, etc won't work. Your steps per mm should be the same across all 3 of your stepper motors, and the only reason to change this is if your pulley...

Most firmwares have the back end coded for a filament sensor, but I'm not sure how that wires into the Rambo board itself, or if the code is still there in the SeeMeCNC branch of Repetier. Look up ToyBuilder labs as another supplier. Their sensor detects when filament stops moving as well, so you'd ...
