Sorry If I have contributed to that confusion. #1 I still believe that in most cases, we are at a point you should attempt to update to the latest version to get all the features and improvements with both firmware version (Raisetouch and Marlin).

Re: Problems with vase mode

And yes, please share or provide a link to the STL if you can. This will always help any diagnoses when asking about setting or error in slicing.

Re: Problems with vase mode

I've printed this exact vase with other slicing software on my printer with no problem. However, this is what I get when I run it through ideaMaker: https://i.imgur.com/fkeQ8oI.jpg Any suggestions? I think is potentially related to a thin wall setting bug in Ideamaker. What happens is, for reasons ...

Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

Again, in one way, what you are comparing is kind of a different topic. When Zemlin used SD5984 drivers, it's more akin to a change of simply not using stealthchop or silent mode. The SD5984 is a very good driver- no doubt about it. It's based on proven and well known functionality. Sometimes simple...

Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

Here is the difference between those 2 chips: The SD5984 is next generation of the pretty much 3D printing baseline standard A4988 stepper driver. This is a long proven technology, simple but known stepper translator, improved current control section and lower RDS on MOSFET section (less heat genera...

Re: Raise3D Pro2 initial impression

Thanks for those pictures. They really help folks like me better understand the Pr2 series. Just curious, and I know this is an ask that requires effort you might not be willing, to understand how they mounted the new XYZ stepper drivers in the base as nobody has seen them yet. That might require tu...

Re: Filament runout sensor kills printing

I think you missed this post about printing an alternate cover for the sensor?

For the friction of loading filament, we just developed a new cover based on users' suggestions. If possible, would you like to print it out and give a try?

Re: Gear Slip at Overlapping Solidfill layer print

I hate to ask, but can you attach a sample of gcode that causes this failure? Don't need the entire file, just enough to see this overlap. I know you posted the settings file and I could slice an STL, but want to better understand the exact point of the failure. Also, a picture of that point in a fa...

Re: Ribbon Cable Replacement

The million dollar question, where does that break correspond to as installed in the printer? The other end of the entrance to the cable chain at the back? Going up through the hole in the top lid? under or near a cable tie?

Re: Bondtech Dual set-screw

It's a standard M3 sized setscrew, however, it's extremely short, like 1mm or less. Early versions were sent with too long of a screw and you used a Dremel abrasive cutting wheel to carefully grind it away to not stick out as the gear rotates. I fully admit, the extra short version of the screw is e...

Re: thermal runaway errors but no thermal runaway sensor

so, my printer has started throwing thermal runaway errors and forcing a re-start, even though I haven't changed any firmware or installed the sensor yet. is there an auto update feature that may have downloaded it? how can I fix this?

Re: thermal runaway errors but no thermal runaway sensor

Again, you have options here for testing. You can safely and easily, with very little effort, flash back to Marlin 1.1.1 firmware. This is safe, easy, and a known testing point. We know that firmware has an issue, but for most things, it's not the worst error in the bigger picture. https://www.raise...

Re: thermal runaway errors but no thermal runaway sensor

Just so we are clear, the motion board firmware is what throws the error. You change the LCD raisepack until you are blue in the face, the error message came from Marlin. There are really only about 3 official firmware variants today of the Marlin. You have the previous 1.1.1 firmware- no thermal ru...

Very good wire, we use that for the same flexing reasons on printers with moving X axis stepper motors (Flashforge, Wanhao, Makerbot) and custom builds.
