  1. Anyone tried Klipper on a Makerfarm i3v yet

    Looks like this has a great potential for creating better prints faster and making the machine quieter. I have a Makerfarm i3v 10" with a Rambo board and have started going thru the configuration...

    Here you go. If you figure out how to convert them into some useful format like DXF, I would like to have a copy of them. Attachments are a little funny on this site & I can't tell whether it added...

    I should have mentioned I did order a heat sink also. That has not arrived yet.

    I tried the hair spray & used that for the 1st year, but occasionally something would lift up on a corner. I do...

    I am thinking of replacing the relay on my Makerfarm i3v 10" with a solid state relay & adding one to my FolgerTech Delta, but wanted to know how to hook it up before ordering a couple. I found...

    If it is a moisture problem rather than putting it in the oven, you might try heating your 3d printer heat bed to 50 to 70C & placing the roll on the heatbed for a half hour on each side to pull the...

    I am just printing PETG at 230 with no heatbed on painters tape & elmer's gluestick on Mirror from Lowes.

    I have finally resolved where the problem was coming from & just finished a 2hour 47 minute print. I had not gotten past 1 hour 30 minutes before. While doing a 40 minute print this morning I heard...

    I tried just changing the stepper drivers to start with. When that failed, I changed all the whole arduino Mega+Ramps. I am at a loss as to what this problem is now. The print stopped about 40...

    I updated the firmware to the RCBugFix & that seems to have fixed my scale problem. Should be able to tell in a couple of hours whether the DRV8825 drivers fixed my stopping problem.

    I able to print a part that takes up to about an hour and a half before it stops, so am thinking this might be a heat related problem of some sort. I am trying to swap the A4988 drivers with...
  14. Last time I tried that, I could not get it to...

    Last time I tried that, I could not get it to compile, but worked this time. Must have missed something before. Is there a standard Configuration.h file I should start with or should I do a compare...
  15. It should not be a Windows driver problem since...

    It should not be a Windows driver problem since printing it from the SD card or from octoprint caused the same problem. I went thru & took all the connections apart & back together. I had not...

    I had not thought about using a wireless SD card. That is an interesting way to print. Thanks.

    What I do not understand is how I have been using it successfully for 1.5 years without this problem & all of a sudden I have a problem. If the fact that USB does not support real time protocol...

    I found this ethernet shield http://www.banggood.com/Ethernet-Shield-W5100-R3-Support-PoE-For-Arduino-UNO-Mega-2560-Nano-p-907969.html Is it possible to use this instead of USB?

    Using Octoprint from Raspberry Pi or connected directly to my computer using USB will give me a communication error after a short time & the printer stops. Printing directly from the SD card does...

    Looks like it is the USB connection. I printed 2 prints with the SD card that were 45 minutes & 30 minutes long. I tried a 2 hour print from proterface again to see if taking all the parts off &...

    I asked Colin this question also & he suggested printing from the SD card also, but thinks it might be the P/S as he has seen this similar problem before. Printing from the SD card 1st sounds like a...
  22. Replacing A4988 Drivers with DRV8825 on Arduino Mega 2560 + Ramps

    I have been having a problem with my printer stopping in the middle of a print. The message I am getting with pronterface is that it has lost its connection. The heatbed & Hotend still stay at the...

    There was a guy that printed the front axis for the 8" in ABS & had some problems with it cracking. Take a look at halber_mensch comments from Feb 4 & more recent here:...

    I am using BuildTak on top of a Mirror. I use 230c for PETG & bed temp from 40 to 60. For PLA I am using 210c. I sometimes struggle with getting the part off the buildtak, especially really flat...

    I do not know for sure, but would be easy to test. Set it to something really low like 50mm to test it. That way you do not have to raise your x-axis up very high to test it.
