Re: Building My first 3dprinter: Need some help!

The Z-Axis does not require a lot of torque. Would think that you could use a Nema 14 in place of a Nema 17 if you were to use a lower pitch lead screw. Below are calculations for my 3D Printer using 1.25mm pitch, 2mm pitch 4mm pitch and 8mm pitch lead-screws. // 1.25mm pitch is a standard all threa...

Re: What printer is this?!?

Do you have this Stock filament monitor!

If not then you have a 3DP08

Re: They always say it depends, so i have some dependencies.(What to buy)

I see no problem printing a base inserting the magnet then continuing printing to finish the model. Now I have never done this, I have done similar models where I changed filament at a given height. This is the same only differences is inserting or dropping in the magnets. I would start a bunch of t...

Re: My Firmware

The runout sensor support would only be helpful if it actually sent out a signal via USB when printing from USB (something Octoprint, Cura, etc. could glom onto). This is a great ideal, an should have been incorporated in the original ideal. Though it is never too later to add good ideals into the ...

Re: My Firmware

I decided to upgrade from Marlin 2 alpha to a newer release of Marlin 2.0.3. Now that this newer version of marlin is running on my 3D Printers with a MKS Ramps compatible controller. Of all the new features in Marlin 2.0.3 which would one suggest to enable for a Hictop 3DP11/12 Prusa i3 style 3D-Pr...

Re: My Firmware

I believe that by configuring BOARD_MKS_BASE_14 in place of the original choice of BOARD_MKS_GEN_13 // This allows for #define PS_ON_PIN 2 // X+ or Optional #define SPINDLE_LASER_PWM_PIN 2 // X+ Then this code #include "pins_RAMPS.h" caused my Filament run-out sensor to fail. No matter like it bette...

Re: My Firmware

I uploaded Marlin 2.0.3 to Blu one of my 3D Printers, and the filament run-out sensor does not work. I decided to Change the pins_RAMPS.h to Z-Max changing from pin 2 to pin 19 and it again works. #define FIL_RUNOUT_PIN 19 Will update My Firmware on Google with the my filament run-out on pin 19 Firm...

Re: How to model builtin support structures?

I have always wanted to know how to do this, sometimes it could be best if you can make your own supports.

It has Notes for Original / My Configurations // set to true for SN-04N False for TL-W3MC2. // set to same logic as "Z_MIN_ENDSTOP_INVERTING". Some do not stop the 3D Printer from working correctly are not noted ...

Re: Doubling or Tripling up on inner layers?

Try This

Ultimaker Cura infill settings
In Cura you can print the outer layer at .15mm and you can print the infill at .3mm
The printer will first print the walls for two layers, and then it will print one thicker infill layer.

Re: PNP Capacitive sensor

I wired both my Proximity sensors by plugging them directly into a 5volt source. SN04-N Wiring.jpg IMG_2207.JPG They are both labeled SN04-N 6-36 volts and Omron TL-W3M 10-30 volts. In the three years have used the sensors have never had any problems with them operating at 5volts. This in no way mea...
