Re: What is everyone doing

Between working for a startup as Senior DevOps Engineer and dealing with medical issues (HCM), I rarely get time to do much printing. I mostly monitor this and other forums in the morning between shower and getting dressed for work (air dry). I really need to slow down soon, just haven't figured out...

Re: Bought a used Hictop 3DP17 from a local chap...

I am finally getting around to doing something with my little-hicci (3DP-17). Starting by printing Roberts_Clif cable chain for X axis, and firmware update. Using Big-Hicci (CR-10S) to print the chain parts (it was already loaded & leveled). Lots to do to it to get it up to snuff. I'm printing the X...

Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

You should be able to source them at Ace Hardware or even a car parts store. But I see what you mean. Amazon has them from $4-$140 (in quantity).

Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

For the conduit, I haven't had a problem with it being rough. Standard EMT is usually fairly smooth. If anything, you will want to go over it with steel wool to remove the lettering and shine it up a bit.

Good luck on your build.

Re: Parts Sticking to Blue Tape on Only 1 of 2 Identical Printers!

How are you leveling? It could be simply that your print head is closer on this printer (by 0.015-0.1). It doesn't take much.

I have a bed leveling test, but it was designed for the CR10 300mmx300mm bed. It is very useful for the final tuning.

Re: What is everyone doing

The printer uses ethernet cables to communicate back to the controller. As it turns out, that's a very noisy way to do things. More on that later! I wonder if they are using solid core or stranded wire? You can tell by how stiff the wires are. I read last night in the instructions for my digital da...

As to the CNC, everything I needed to know is in this video. Just need time to build one.

Re: What is everyone doing

I've been too busy this month to print. I sit and read the forum after my morning shower before heading to work, that's about it.

@LePaul, with as many printers as you have worked with over the years, this should only take an hour or two. You're getting slower in your old age. :-P

Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

Would like some Help, I have a question I have Octoprint with Octolapse and Timelapse. I would like to know if I could install a plugin that could be preset to record configurable frames with a record start/stop button. This could record anytime while printing or not printing for the preset configu...

Re: Octopi not showing webcam stream

Actually, if you do an apt-get dist-upgrade, you are already getting the essential core Linux packages. And Octoprint uses the web interface for updates, so the only thing missing is likely a metadata file saying what Octoprint image you are on. As to the camera not working, as I said I had to upgra...

Re: Octopi not showing webcam stream

Before you get too upset with the webcam, I'd check the model with the mjpg-streamer project upstream. They may have added support after the release you have on your pi. That was the problem I had.

Re: CR 10S Extruder Help!

I moved this to the CR-10 forum. It looks like the temp sensor is out of control. Not sure where you got this firmware, but if it is from https://github.com/makerbase-mks/MKS-Robin I personally wouldn't trust it. Looks like it is run by one of the Chinese companies that make modifications to Marlin ...

Re: Hictop Upgrades

A while ago. I show the download date on my system as March 2017 (which sounds about right - I had just bought my 3DP-17 and was asking them almost weekly for it).
