Re: I wrote a bloat-free STL viewer

I'll probably look at a QT solution as that is what I am familiar with. I am the current owner of Win32DiskImager (although admittedly I haven't had time to do the next major round of updates in 2 years - time flies). Need to reinstall my Windows Development SSD in it's NUC so I have a Windows devel...

Re: I wrote a bloat-free STL viewer

@Krishty Also, did you ever get permission to release the source? I'll understand if that is not an option, but if it is, I'd like to examine it and see if I can make a native Linux version (wine can be tedious, even for the more experienced).

You should post your mods to the upstream tree and have it included there.

Re: Thingiverse is still soooo slow

Not sure where Thingiverse is but I have no problems. @GrueMaster do you have any problem with Thingiverse It really depends on the time of day and the traffic to the site. I usually check it every morning while waiting for coffee (same time I check the board here). Some days it is fairly instantan...

Re: Shifted Layers

"Better" in this case means the design has improved enough to make a mold for mass production, thus saving costs. Better for the revenue stream.

While I admire your efforts, it would be easier to just get a replacement board.

Re: Print issues: stringing

Sounds like you need to level the bed better. Could also be that the glass is warped (common issue). As I'm sure you've read/heard, to level, you have to first home the printer, then (recommended) move the print head to within 10mm of each corner, drop the print head (Z-axis) to zero, and raise the ...

Re: Power Supply Power Fused Cable

The only fuse my 3DP-17 had was one I added when the stock power switch (rated for AC only) burned out. I think I have a 15amp now. Will have to take the covers off to check.

Re: Cura stuck at 0% infill

Infill Density looks like 100%, not 0%. Try hitting the arrow (next to the box) to reset to default value.

Re: Printer missing parts

What is your layer height set to? Looks pretty high. Try 0.2 or 0.15.

Re: Print issues: stringing

You may also need to do this test on a variety of different filaments. Most basic filaments from the same brand (different colors from Hatchbox for example) will use the same or close to the same settings, but other filaments (like Hatchbox wood filament) will need very different settings. I recentl...

Re: A4982SLPT compatable A4988 Driver

You are heading into uncharted territory here. Not sure who all here is even at this level of system mods.

I found this article on how to choose. Not sure it is helpful for you. You could also search on Digikey and see if you can find one that matches the specs you are looking for.

Re: Shifted Layers

First thing I would look at is loose bed or loose belt on the Y axis. I once had a print going on my 3DP-17 that started looking like that 5 layers into the print. Discovered all of the wing nuts for the bed on the table below the printer.
