Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

I am not really sure what you mean. Do you mean that last bit filament off the spool before it is empty? A bowden driven filament would place the motor on the frame instead of the extruder head. using a tube to feed it from the motor over to the extruder head. once the end of the filament is past t...

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

seeing the dual N2 setup with bowden feed is interesting. makes me wonder how a pure bowden setup would work for the printer. removing all the mass from the extruder.

I do see issues though, losing ability to feed the filament once it passes the motor.

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

DIR pin circled in red
IMG_0437b.JPG

the reason I say this is a better indicator is because of this.

The SD6128 are going to look backwards and people may be temped to use the adjustment socket for alignment of the driver. but the DIR pin is what needs to be aligned for.

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

not all stepper drivers are going to look the same. the DIR pin is labeled on the drivers, that is a better way to make sure you put it in correctly. the DIR pin needs to be in the lower right corner. I was looking at other pin layout when I put it in backwards but DIR is unique and in one corner of...

Re: Swapping out V1 for V2 Extruder - Leave Right One Off?

remove the right one, HOWEVER, you can not remove the thermal couple. I have a damaged thermal couple (still works but don't want to trust it in the hotend). I don't have the heater rod installed but I still need the thermal couple installed. I tried removing it with the newer software but it still ...

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

I just placed an order for 5 of the SD6128 stepper drivers to be installed with the new mainboard I'm going to have air shipped along with a replacement thermal couple. Going to work on a guide for doing putting these in. using what I have now.

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

this is why I am saying we need a guide for this. I installed the new steppers but when i was looking at it later, I found it was wrong. I installed them backwards. due to doing that or some mishaps while trying to adjust the voltage on them, I took out my motion controller board and the touchscreen...

I recommend people not attempt this until we get a guide written for it unless you really know what you are doing.

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

I figured it out, however, this is what I found. Y was set to 1.009 v X was set to 1.024 v What are these supposed to be set too? if I could get an anwser from raise3d staff, that would be awesome. Here is the board with the Y stepper driver removed. IMG_0437.JPG I need to set this to 1/16 which is ...

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

now for the next question, how to check the voltage on these steppers. I'm going to have to remove a cable to do it I think.

Re: abs printing problems (maybe cooling)

you may need to use glue stick to get ABS to stick to the buildtak, I haven't tried it again yet with the new V2 hotend. With the V1, on ABS, i believe you want 100% flowrate. to tell the truth, I had better luck with the air blowing on the print from the side then trying to stop that airflow. I did...

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

I got 2 surestep SD6128 in today. after the print is done, going to look into installing them. Just kinda guessing on this but 1: I need to check the voltage on the current ones so I can set these to that voltage. 2: shutdown the machine 3: remove the current ones, 4: set the microstepping switches ...

Re: Can there be such a thing as TOO MUCH cooling in the heatbreak?

I'd like to note, that everything I tried that was different from Raise3D's original design caused failure of prints. you need the downward print cooling provided on the sides. I was able to insulate my hotend and I reprinted a fan mod based on their design in PLA and I haven't had it melt at all ye...

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

I'm had a few prints that have shifted. both before and after V2 hotend. that has to be something with the XY steppers. noise is not an issue for my printer.

is the SD6128 basicly plug and play? just switch it out and don't have to re-solder anything?

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

I've been working on a mod to monitor the stepper motor heat levels. I put temp probe on the 4 stepper motors I have access too. I found that the ones on extruder were at 48 degrees C. the other two were around 41-46 degrees C when running. I think with the machine sealed up, after a few hours they ...
