    Visual Studio is the IDE/compiler. it's used for all sorts of things, but one thing it's well set up for it compiling Marlin.

    If you haven't compiled Marlin before I wouldn't start with this...

    The sapphire plus may include independent z drivers and dual endstops (though that is version dependant). That should make tramming the bed very simple using either g34 and the bltouch, or the...

    Zortrax or Voron would be top of my list. However, most enclosed printers that can get to the right temps (so no ptfe lined hotend) will be pretty similar. The very best would be ones with a bed like...

    I've heard of something similar with another Tron. Incorrect pins on fans is pretty common, but usually switching them around is the simple fix. I wonder if the Tron boards are missing some form of...

    It's quite common for these cheaper printers to have the fan terminals reversed. Pop the crimps for the fan's plug out, reverse them and see if that works.

    Nifty.

    Consider buying the rods. Dowel and other materials will likely be quicker and stronger than 3D printed parts. For the dodecahedral balls, I'd usually use a tolerance of 0.05 - 0.075mm for...

    Two things to do. Check the PTFE tube inside the nozzle. It may be getting cooked and worn out. Then check that the extruder fan is running (at full speed) while printing. I didn't think this was...

    Hard to tell, but looks like high spots on the bed. Maybe back off from the bed a touch.

    38 watts shouldn’t be a problem. E3d actually switched to 30w so they don’t melt the aluminium heatblock in case of runaway, and they’ll still cruise past 300°C.

    What happens if you run the...

    Possibly not too useful, but I did have a printer that had a firmware bug that would screw up the PID if the X and Y axis steps/mm were adjusted.

    This may be similar, where the wrong variables are...

    Ok. May have an idea which can get this type of file printable. The issue with the file is non-manifold surfaces embedded within walls, underground, etc. However, the land/feature surface of the file...

    It’s definitely in the cura settings. You may have to tell cura your printer has a heated bed before they are visible.

    The way to do that would be to adapt something like the Pat9125 from Prusa. The code already exists, and you don't need an encoder wheel. Just place a bearing against the filament and read the...

    I actually designed a simple filament sensor that will trigger on oversized filament (or kinked ends of filament as commonly found one sun spools). May be worth a shot if the smart filament sensor...

    Easiest way to mount a direct extruder so you don't lose any space is to stick the motor and extruder up high, above mounting plate, with a short length of PTFE to get to the hotend.

    The hotend is hard up against a mounting plate. Most direct mount extruders need a bit more space, so you lose a bit of space, typically in the Y-direction. Mine loses around 12mm in the Y-direction....

    I have a feeling that it's already turned on in firmware. Usually you'd want it off so you can control it with the slicer.
