Re: Assembly of the Crane

I had the same issue with the head when I got mine. It was wobbling pretty badly on the X rail.

Re: Frustrating corexy skipping

Are you using a glass sheet, glass fiber sheet, or a sticker on the bed itself? The IR probe is pretty worthless for glass and probably worthless for the glass fiber. It might be OK for a matte black sticker on the bed though.

Re: Frustrating corexy skipping

Not sure I understand the question. The Maestro has to home Y first because, otherwise, the head would likely never hit the X limit switch when ithe Maestro tried to home X. So, if you home only X through the DWC, the Maestro will automatically home Y too.

Re: Release 2.03 Maestro and Macros

I use a Metrol switch on my Z probe. It has an accuracy of +/- 5 microns. Ideally, what I want to do is implement a probe with a Metrol switch that will deploy automatically. It would be handy for bed leveling, but where it would really help is for single-probing on each print to set Z = 0. The Z en...

Re: Release 2.03 Maestro and Macros

I can't answer all your questions, but I can a few: 3. Any time you are disassembling a part of the head where molten filament has been, you should heat up the nozzle to at least 150 to soften any filament that has seeped into the cracks. 4. If you're referring to the ones that require a 1.3mm hex d...

This one is sneakier than most, but still pretty transparent.

Thanks Shep. I've been banning obvious spammers (LOTS of them; looks like I have more to ban), but haven't banned anyone who was posting within the context of this site to the best of my knowledge.

Idea for better bed consistency

Has anyone tried putting a triad of wheels on the corners of the bed, clamped around the Z rails similar to what's done on the Crane? It seems to me that this would smooth out Z movement and make the bed less susceptible to shaking in the x-y plane. The wheels should also have a longer service life ...

Safely updating the Maestro SD card

When updating the SD card contents, make sure you don't blow away your tuning. Tuning parameters are in the /sys/motion.g and /sys/thermal.g files, so make sure you don't overwrite those files! All other files in the /sys folder, as well as all files in the /gcodes, /macros, /menu, and /www folders,...
