      Mark, my printer stops printing after about 20 minutes. R1+ Matter Control Windows 8.1 from a lap top. After I walk away and return and wake the lap top, Matter Control page says in the top left corner printer not communicating. Any thoughts?

      Hi Mark,

      I was hoping to find some information about switching my thermistor to the Type K thermocouple. I can find a lot of information on the pt100 but nothing on the type K. Any info would be appreciated.

      Regarding your post in bed-heater-installing-ssr-pid-control-instructions, "I would expect a MOSFET... to work at least as good as an SSR.", just throwing it out there that if you pulled the lid off those SSRs you're buying there's likely a MOSFET or TRIAC inside. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solid-state_relay#Operation (Would have just posted but Waldo's a little cranky lately on resurrecting old threads.)

      Hi,
      I have 2 robos R1 and I keep on having issues here and there. On one Robo the X axis, when it glides to the left its pretty smooth but for one point on the rods. I think this is the reason a get a shift in my prints. About a few layers after the raft has printed.

      Could it be a bearing problem? I am questionning because it only happens on a certain point on the rods.
      1. mark tomlinson

        Bearing or perhaps a bad rod. Changing the bearing is easier.

      What made you get a Robo C2, just curious.

        Really just wanted an better small/fine detail printer.
        Using the R1+ for that is a pain.

        Make sure the thermistor wires are connected to the RAMPS and not broken. If they are then it is a bad thermistor.

      My Robo 3d R1 1.4.0.5335 wont print STL file created in Punch V9, it downloads into print que, I can see the OBJects downloads the Printer Que, I can see the OBJECTS on the Printer Que Bed, but they don't print, the printer calibrates, then says PRINT FINISHED, print Another.

        I can't help you with MatterControl. Sorry, I do not use it. Perhaps try another program (repetier host or Cura)

      Mark could you look at a post for me and if you don't have any ideas could you suggest someone else to talk with.

      Did you end up printing that tower to make sure it was right? I think that it's 100mm with 10 layers for 10mm per layer, so that's every 50 layers at .2mm

      If you did would you be up to trying to make a resource? I'm hoping we can get that growing. I'll make a category for STL's and Gcode
