Re: why is the touchscreen rubber cemented onto the printer?

reply, I got replacement for the entire screen box and I was attempting to replace it, there is no problem with the screws, but the entire box was rubber cemented onto the pillar, which seemed unnecessary to me since the screws did a perfectly adequate job. Side note, the replacement box that I rece...

why is the touchscreen rubber cemented onto the printer?

it seems like the three screws hold it in place just fine, I was trying to replace mine today (the top left of the screen is non-responsive) and was worried that I had missed some screws when it was extremely difficult to remove. Side note, the replacement screen had a faulty board and wouldn't star...

issue unscrewing the nozzle

I have successfully removed the hotends from the printer, but I cannot get the nozzles to release from the hotend. I have the v2 hotends, could I please get some suggestions?

fixing heat creep in the print head

so I have a new filament that gets too soft to feed properly when the print head assembly gets too hot, I have already put ABS spacers between the motors and the print head, which is causing issues with the motors getting too hot (I will probably fix that with some heat sinks), and additionally I wi...

Re: right feed motor is extremely hot even after being idle for several days

not sure, but the old firmware with the new driver was still causing issues which is why I re-flashed the firmware I have an open support ticket regarding this.

yes, it may have become corrupted somehow, or something, I am not entirely sure.

Re: right feed motor is extremely hot even after being idle for several days

I don't know where the bug is, I just re-flashed the 1.1.6 firmware from the downloads tab and it seems to have resolved the issue, there were no modifications to the firmware.

Re: how to adjust the distance between the feed gear and the guide

I think I am going to try putting some sort of heat shrinking material around the inside of the bearing in order to slightly increase it's diameter. I will let you know how it goes.

Re: right feed motor is extremely hot even after being idle for several days

update, there was an issue with the driver, but it appears that there was also a bug with the firmware, just in case anyone else has an issue like this.

Re: has anyone here tried HydroFill support material with ABS?

something I just noticed about the Hydrofill that I received, it is a smaller diameter than it should be (mine is ~1.69 mm) and the feed gear is not gripping it properly, this could have caused a feed issue that in turn left it in the nozzle causing a clog. could you check your filament's diameter t...

how to adjust the distance between the feed gear and the guide

so I have realized that a filament that I am trying to use is slightly too thin, and the gear cant properly grip it to feed it. is there any way to adjust the distance between the feed gear and the guide wheel?
Edit: just for reference, I just measured it and it is 1.69 mm diameter

Re: thinking about active cooling options for the motors

I believe using stick on heat sinks would be more effective than using a fan to blow warm air onto the motor. What is the root cause that necessitate the need for extra cooling on the motors directly? Have you had problems with grind out or something? I have been trying to get a new material to pri...

Re: Filament stop going out of hot end during printing

is the nozzle clogging? I have had a similar issue recently, and it has always been because the nozzle clogged.

thinking about active cooling options for the motors

I typically print with ABS so i block off the build plate cooling from the fans, so I see two options for cooling (other than/ in addition to adding heat sinks to the motors) 1. print a duct to replace the little plastic parts that came with the printer and instead of redirecting the flow to the bui...

how would I go about attaching them? what material would be both sticky enough and conduct heat properly?
