Re: Heat Shields?

actually, I found that you don't want to insulate the top of the heater block. There is a reason for it. the issue is that the excess heat still has to go somewhere and the only out points when you insulate the hotend are the nozzle and the thermal tube. So you are just concentrating the heat in the...

Re: New idea for insulating a hot end rapidly

the ceratex cermic fiber cloth tape I am using is rated for 1,800 °F. for Continuous Use, 2300 °F Maximum. the ceratex was fine, it was the kapton tape that burned.

Re: New idea for insulating a hot end rapidly

and in case you were wondering what kapton tape looks like when you burn it.

This was removed from the hotend that had a thermal runaway. It was insulated with kapton layer, ceramic fiber layer and another kapton layer outside that. I have no clue how hot it actually got.

Re: Ideamaker on a delta

I did some work on getting a print to be centered on the N2 to print a leveling circle. because the center of the bed is not the center of the print area. I think I achieved this by moving the object. on a delta, could you oversize the print area to achieve the same result? by extending out the prin...

wish they had documented what they changed in M112. if I knew what it was doing, I could fix this in the 1.2.2 version.

Re: Motion Controller FW Version 1.1.6-rev1?

if we want to get technical. raise3d actually needs to have 1.1.1 be the main firmware posted on GitHub as that is their primary standard firmware. 1.1.6-rev1 needs to be a branch of that. However, I have not looked at the 1.1.6-rev1 firmware but I think that is the one that has been posted for a lo...

Re: how to check Z stepper driver voltage

I was told the fixed state stepper driver in z was set to 1.0. It may have been in the tech support I got when I replaced my steppers long ago. the Z axis is more about holding power then anything else.

I finally started work on getting my printer back online. the nozzles were not touched the bed after I moved the printer, as in moved via a vehicle. since I think the primary hotend is compermized, I took it all apart and I am swapping in the second hotend for the main. the material I use for insula...

1.2.2 is based on official marlin 1.1.0 and has the code for many newer features built into it. including the BL touch. I have not tested the BL touch myself.

lower would be less torque but .55 volts read on the multi meter from the vref test point is equal to 1.1 amps at the stepper motor.

you need to pay attention also to the data sheet as well Manually adjusting current limit: ( For use with standard version) Make sure Vref solder jumper pads is shorted. Peak current can be calculated using formula I = Vref x 2 or Vref = I / 2 [where "I" is the current limit and "Vref...

Re: Turn off unnecessary wipe

the issue is that as long as the hotend is hot, it will continue to ooze all over your print. so to achieve this, you need to find a way to turn off the second extruder when you are finished with it. there would need to be enough final retraction on the hotend so it does not continue to ooze as the ...

Re: RINGING the electromechanical challenge

the N-series is not a RAMPS, it is a RUMBA. also I have looked into switching out the board and it really can't be done due to all the inputs. No one else really makes a board to handle 3 to 4 thermal couples. Though I'm not sure if extruder 3 is on thermal couple or thermistor. Overall, if we have ...

Re: Alternative ON/OFF switch

messing around with the power supply unit is probably something you would want to consult with meanwell onor at least see if there is a manual detailing what you can do. That bridge comes like that stock. installing something else in the bridges place might effect power levels.

It is a matter of wiring the stepper motors into the new motion controller and wiring your heater rod and thermistor into the controller as well.
