Re: Thermal-Protector - available soon to all

http://a.co/d/j7LAQuw <-housing, i couldn't find a polarized version so pay attention to direction. http://a.co/d/hWC8Plx <- crimp on pins http://a.co/d/eL7Pnok <-wire. Due to the lack of polarized housing I recommend unique color for pin one rest can all be the same. Alternate parts https://www.di...

Re: Thermal-Protector - available soon to all

tldr: break in ribbon cable can cause intermittent problems that manifest as extrusion issues instead of an clear outright failure. Setting safety issue aside for a moment even though it should be enough to warrant immediate action from Raise3D. I have not installed pullup resistors, only because im...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Well then im at a loss to explain the difference but I do agree with Jetguy that the hotend is probably not running hotter then requested.
The photo shows a part that didn't have time to cool down between layers not necessarily extruded too hot to start with.
turn on the berd and see what happens.

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

So here is what I think is happening based on what's been said so far. correct me if this is not correct On the stock R3D fan setup layer cooling is always on. With your current setup it is now optional and off. This would explain the differences you are seeing. BTW layer cooling with ABS can be ben...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Did you change the fan arrangement between R3D and E3D?

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Ah, so based on the photo I would do two things to improve that particular part.
Add a brim and, because of its size, print two or more at the same time this way they have time to cool between layers.

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

What does way to hot look like? When you run PID autotune what you're trying to do is smooth out the temperature swings and maintain the nozzle at the target temp as close as possible. so redo the PID autotune. As for your concern about being too hot, that's a hard thing to tell without physically m...

V3 hotend dims

Does anyone happen to have the heat-break dimensions for the un-threaded/smooth section?
How about the detachable heat-sink HxLxW?

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

just a heads up. My max air pump was no longer pumping this morning. Pulled it apart and found the diaphragmss shaft was melting the motors eccentric thingamabob. (see picture) So new pump is installed and I added additional high quality PTFE grease to the diaphragm's shaft. (Magnalube G is what I h...

yep, its my first draft so im not entirely satisfied but it is working so haven't had a lot of motivation to change it yet.

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Ok this is outstanding. This is what I was think of for some time now. Now a lot of the pain in the neck work is finished. I'm ordering as soon as I get some info from you experts! So my questions are: 1. 12V or 24V pump? 2. If 24V how does one remap the gcode? 3. If 12Vwith E-Switch and I place th...

Re: Migrate to different board and firmware

I'm going to second the disappointment in R3D response to the thermocouple issue. It appears to be serious enough to warrant a recall and replacement of the boards, the least they could do is the plugin fix and they still haven't sent the one i ordered, not that i need them to, it just speaks to th...

Re: Migrate to different board and firmware

Personally for the price... well shoot, i typed out a long reply but apparently didn't publish before leaving the page. In summary it said, you want to automate z tool height, we can do it and you dont have to replace all the hardware if you dont wish to. And the other important bit, borofloat glas...

Re: Migrate to different board and firmware

Also, it seems to me you are all stuck on auto leveling to solve a HARDWARE problem. I was wondering if this tired argument was going to come up, and i'm sorry for continuing to derail the thread. Autoleveling is not primarily trying to fix a hardware problem in software, it is automating the tool ...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

I think a lot of this fan duct stuff is because you are trying to improve on the stock duct locations for layer cooling. Yea the stock layer cooling pretty much blows. couldn't resist the pun. I been watching the berd project and its on my list of things to do. Since we on the topic of cool stuff :...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

A couple of notes on mine. I'm using the set screws on the sides of the tool head to hold hot end, this way the main fan does not have to be removed for adjustments. In the slt file link there are some options. e.g. Two piece assembly for easier FDM printing, one piece for SLS or FDM with supports, ...
