Re: Board error1 and home position

This printer is awesome. I'm printing out my 2nd R0 dome now and will post photos after the summer heat is gone so I can finish the parts. It won't be long until your friends want you to you print something since they know a guy with a printer.

Good news! I fixed it. I realized this problem started about 10 days after I installed a new hot end assembly. So I figured maybe I bent some wire in the heater rod or thermocoupler. I had a new thermocoupler laying around and I installed that and it works like brand new. Before it only worked maybe...

What did you do to get the board errors to go away? My machine reboots every 2 minutes with this and I have no idea how to fix it.

Did anyone every get this problem solved? This exact issue with error 0 and error 1 started happening after I replaced the extruder with a new one. The printer would work for days and I started to see these errors. Then it go so bad I can't print anything now. I've replaced the board by the extruder...

Re: Help Loose Extruder

Sorry I meant this custom bolt that the heat vents going around and the PLA goes thru it. http://i.imgur.com/kZlgODd.jpg Today I found the bolt laying on the floor next to the printer. I had the door open so it might have dropped out from the inside or maybe from the bottom. It looks just like the b...

Re: Help Loose Extruder

Heat gun worked okay to help clean the PLA off. But I snapped the threads off the long bolt during assembly. Weird because it wasn't tight and looked like I could spin it several more times before it was to tighten up. Does Raise sell the bolt separately or just with the V2 hotend? I wonder if boili...

Re: Help Loose Extruder

Well that lasted for 3 months and then I think the extruder hit a part. It leaks all over the place its coming out just under the vents.

What is a good way to clean all of the PLA off of these parts? Put them in the oven, a heat gun?

Ordered a V2 hotend incase this turns out to be bent or damaged.

Re: Wall of shame prints (print failures)

The worst print fail I had was a couple of months ago that would have resulted in a heck of alot of damage if I hadn't stopped it in time. I was printing out 1 of the 24 parts that make up a BB-8 inside sphere. Because the shape of these parts they were hands down my most difficult print. They even ...

Re: Bad adhesion of Buildtak

What bed temps are you using? I can't get nothing, and I mean nothing to stick to the buildtak unless I use a raft. But even then I put down quite a bit of elmers glue sticks. So you might want to get used to buying a 30 pack of elmers glue sticks as you'll use them left and right. Also if my bed te...

Re: Eiffel Tower - N2 Plus

Amazing how it printed out the rails all the details of the steel without seeing stringing of material everywhere. I've seen this printer do stuff that should have been impossible.
