    Jan 6, 2018 8:04 AM - becca3940: When I print the R2_Test_Print gcode it works perfectly, then when I try to print a project using the same z offset , my print lines are thin and don't stick to the print bed then get hung up on extruder. I am not sure how to get my cura settings the same as the test print, any help would be appreciated
    Jan 6, 2018 8:36 AM - Geof: Hi Becca, can you start a thread in the R2 trouble shooting so we can help you out. Thanks !
    Jan 6, 2018 10:07 AM - becca3940: thanks
    Jan 6, 2018 10:18 AM - becca3940: I just tried to start a thread it says I need 3 posts before I can add a link to prevent spam
    Jan 6, 2018 10:35 AM - Geof: Hi Becca, please do an introduction thread then 2 random posts and state the reason so you can do your links and photos
    Jan 6, 2018 10:35 AM - Geof: The forum does that to help limit spam, you'd be amazed how much there is :)
    Jan 6, 2018 10:37 AM - Geof: Becca just responded to your post
    Jan 6, 2018 5:45 PM - dbvanhorn: hi Setting up a brand new R1+ tonight\

    Jan 7, 2018 6:35 AM - jbigler1986: I need a huge favor from someone. I need 2 y axis pillow blocks printed. I need to change the bearings and mine broke when taking them apart.
    Jan 7, 2018 6:35 AM - jbigler1986: I can paypal some money of needed. PM me if interested
    Jan 7, 2018 6:58 AM - mark tomlinson: I'd do it, but printers are offline for a move. If I can find my spare parts box I may already have some printed. Will look later today. I try to keep some of all of the printable parts on hand.
    Jan 7, 2018 8:30 AM - jbigler1986: Thanks. Yeah I have spare parts but not those. Go figure
    Jan 7, 2018 9:48 AM - jim3Dbot: JB, Printer tore apart now...but sent the Thingaverse link to my son who has a Monoprice V2....waiting for the response back from him...........your money no good here....LOL
    Jan 7, 2018 10:04 AM - jbigler1986: Lol. I will send you a surprise gift in return. So don't put a face return address. Lol
    Jan 7, 2018 10:30 AM - jim3Dbot: JB....He's going to print, he's a newbe but the V2 is printing out of the box excellent....I think he's going to print ABS....
    Jan 7, 2018 10:31 AM - mark tomlinson: :)
    Jan 7, 2018 10:31 AM - mark tomlinson: For that model anything works. Well, not playdoh, but pretty much any filament :)
    Jan 7, 2018 12:07 PM - jim3Dbot: Glad to hear, one is complete in PLA.....the ABS was trouble on this model......and his printer is a V1..........Black Friday.....$130.00 free ship.........such a deal!........I'll shoot a pic soon

    Jan 8, 2018 5:15 AM - WheresWaldo: Morning Geof
    Jan 8, 2018 5:27 AM - Geof: Hey Waldo Good Morning. How goes it.
    Jan 8, 2018 5:31 AM - Geof: Waldo its not HP but its Kodak (again?) lol https://all3dp.com/kodak-celebrates-anniversary-launch-new-3d-printing-ecosystem/
    Jan 8, 2018 5:39 AM - WheresWaldo: Well that was interesting, I am following CES because my daughter wants a 75" TV So I look at that coverage and also PC coverage to see if I can benfit from any PC upgrades.
    Jan 8, 2018 5:42 AM - WheresWaldo: The Kodak is on sale during CES for $1820, list price is $2799. Too much to be a consumer product unless it includes on site support.
    Jan 8, 2018 5:42 AM - WheresWaldo: https://www.kodak.com/science/3d-printing/3d-printers/default.htm
    Jan 8, 2018 5:45 AM - Geof: 1,820?
    Jan 8, 2018 5:45 AM - Geof: thats cheap.
    Jan 8, 2018 5:46 AM - WheresWaldo: It's a big discount, but one week only and its preorder, not shipping until April.
    Jan 8, 2018 5:47 AM - WheresWaldo: I almost have 85 mm/s print speed tuned perfectly for the R2 PLA only
    Jan 8, 2018 5:47 AM - Geof: hell my UM2 was 3k lol :D
    Jan 8, 2018 5:48 AM - Geof: I bought the sigma on release (original gen) and it was 2560.00 and took 6 months to get here ! lol
    Jan 8, 2018 5:48 AM - WheresWaldo: Same build area as the R2 for the Kodak
    Jan 8, 2018 5:48 AM - Geof: I'm curious to see how those stepper smoothers hold up long term.
    Jan 8, 2018 5:48 AM - WheresWaldo: 200 x 200 x 250
    Jan 8, 2018 5:48 AM - Geof: I saw very similar. (R2 is 196 ;) lol)
    Jan 8, 2018 5:48 AM - WheresWaldo: My R2 is 198 x 198 x 260 set a bit smaller on purpose.
    Jan 8, 2018 5:48 AM - Geof: I dig their auto load the 2nd material set up
    Jan 8, 2018 5:49 AM - WheresWaldo: I didn't look careful enough once I saw the pricing.
    Jan 8, 2018 5:49 AM - Geof: mine cant exceed 196 on the X without modification (not worth it to me yet)
    Jan 8, 2018 5:49 AM - Geof: filament run out and when runs out the 2nd spool for extruder 2 is loaded to finish the print
    Jan 8, 2018 5:51 AM - Geof: Waldo your mystery package show up yet? Tracking shows in champaign yesterday so should arrive today.
    Jan 8, 2018 5:51 AM - WheresWaldo: I never got a tracking number so I have no idea.
    Jan 8, 2018 6:07 AM - Geof: from Robo? Spam folder? Search Stamps
    Jan 8, 2018 6:07 AM - WheresWaldo: Nope nothing
    Jan 8, 2018 6:12 AM - Geof: wierd.
    Jan 8, 2018 6:12 AM - Geof: I got ship notification like wednesday last week adn it shipped out Friday 3 day.
    Jan 8, 2018 6:12 AM - Geof: no signature required so its not a machine lol.
    Jan 8, 2018 6:13 AM - WheresWaldo: I got a message from Braydon last week asking for confirmation of my contact information, afterd that nothing.
    Jan 8, 2018 6:14 AM - Geof: wierd. Probably showing up today as well for you. I'd think we are about the same distance from Robo H!
    Jan 8, 2018 6:14 AM - Geof: HQ***
    Jan 8, 2018 6:15 AM - WheresWaldo: MAybe, not holding my breath for several reasons.
    Jan 8, 2018 6:23 AM - WheresWaldo: Printing Deprime in ABS @ 80 mm/s I have never had one print as nice as this, sharp corners and smooth sides.
    Jan 8, 2018 6:23 AM - WheresWaldo: Will post a picture when its done.
    Jan 8, 2018 6:23 AM - Geof: will be interesting to see that.
    Jan 8, 2018 6:24 AM - Geof: whats the actual speed after the underrides and the such (guesstimate)
    Jan 8, 2018 6:24 AM - Kilrah: cool
    Jan 8, 2018 6:25 AM - WheresWaldo: So layer size is 0.14 mm and the actual print time looks to be about 45 minutes.
    Jan 8, 2018 6:26 AM - WheresWaldo: My profiles are High = 0.14, Med = 0.30, Fast = 0.44 because all those have no fractional steps.
    Jan 8, 2018 6:27 AM - WheresWaldo: With the 0.60 nozzle
    Jan 8, 2018 6:48 AM - WheresWaldo: [​IMG]
    Jan 8, 2018 6:49 AM - WheresWaldo: Too hot, there is some stringing
    Jan 8, 2018 6:50 AM - WheresWaldo: There was a stupid setting in the skirt, it was 2 layers so the bottom doesn't look as good.
    Jan 8, 2018 6:58 AM - WheresWaldo: OctoPrint timed it at 43 minutes (but that includes heating time). Printing it now at 90 mm/s
    Jan 8, 2018 7:04 AM - Geof: looks good!
    Jan 8, 2018 7:09 AM - WheresWaldo: No ringing at all
    Jan 8, 2018 7:11 AM - WheresWaldo: So Robo mainboard 2.1.8 is supposed to add a DAC to help with Stepper issues. Not sure how they implemented it but it also requires changes to Marlin, it isn't transparent. We have mainboard 2.1.5
    Jan 8, 2018 7:12 AM - Geof: yea I heard rumor from them about eventually fixing the ringing in the hardware, but have not heard exactly what rev board and I do not believe they are being suupplied.
    Jan 8, 2018 7:13 AM - WheresWaldo: I think they only have samples, this is based on changes made to their GITHUB, no inside knowledge.
    Jan 8, 2018 7:16 AM - Geof: ah gotya. yea last I heard the newest board rev will not relieve the ringing (whats in newly produced machines) but they are working on something due to complaints
    Jan 8, 2018 7:16 AM - WheresWaldo: Would be nice if they just used TMC drivers
    Jan 8, 2018 7:18 AM - Geof: agreed. I asked for the revision to just be replaceable stepper drivers but I think that fell on deaf ears.
    Jan 8, 2018 7:18 AM - Geof: at least then the user could put any damn thing in they want lol.
    Jan 8, 2018 7:19 AM - Geof: what really sucks is they are SMT chips so cant even put headers on the dang board lol. super weak
    Jan 8, 2018 7:29 AM - WheresWaldo: I am pretty sure they think the DAC is the answer, they could have just done a scrubber circuit (like the smoothers) and it would have done what they need without having to change Marlin source at all.
    Jan 8, 2018 7:32 AM - Kilrah: probably going for adjustabilty
    Jan 8, 2018 7:32 AM - Kilrah: and if those smoothers only last X hours it's not fun to support either
    Jan 8, 2018 7:33 AM - WheresWaldo: Anectdotal They have been used for a long time in many other inductive applications. The tech is not new.
    Jan 8, 2018 8:15 AM - WheresWaldo: More reading, the 8 diode ones appear to be better than the 4 diode versions, but it sdcrubs some voltage from the stepper and it cause more heat to be produced by the driver chips so msybe heat failures can account for short lifespans, although I can find no reports of that.
    Jan 8, 2018 1:51 PM - WheresWaldo: Decided to make an adapter cable for the R2 V1 bed, since I found the actual AMP connector I can use one of these AMP 5-103945-7 which is a cable end crimp connector that fits the cable harness plug.

    Jan 9, 2018 at 3:21 PM - Scott Tobin: Any of you use meshmixer for print supports?
    Jan 9, 2018 at 6:00 PM - Geof: No. S3d. What's up ?

    Jan 11, 2018 5:22 AM - WheresWaldo: Geof, I think I figured out a way to add a Titan extruder without modifying any of the R2. That makes it completely reversable.
    Jan 11, 2018 5:22 AM - Geof: but not the V6 ?
    Jan 11, 2018 5:23 AM - WheresWaldo: No way to add a V6 without modifying something.
    Jan 11, 2018 5:24 AM - WheresWaldo: But the extruder is a real upgrade too, compared to what is included.
    Jan 11, 2018 5:26 AM - Geof: I bet so.
    Jan 11, 2018 5:27 AM - Geof: So far I've not had any real extrusion issues (while using the promethius) but will keep it in mind. I've got a couple titans runing around somewhere.
    Jan 11, 2018 5:44 AM - WheresWaldo: I was able to use a 20 mm Nema 17, but I think a 25 - 34 mm would be better.
    Jan 11, 2018 6:10 AM - Geof: I typically use a larger stepper than most with a Titan just to be "sure" if that makes sense.
    Jan 11, 2018 6:36 AM - WheresWaldo: The whole point of the 3:1 gearing is that it amplifies the torque, so you can use a smaller motor. But I think 256 oz/in is about the sweet spot (that is about 25 mm depth).
    Jan 11, 2018 11:43 AM - WheresWaldo: I just spent 5 minutes on Facebook and now my head hurts
    Jan 11, 2018 11:49 AM - Geof: thats facebook for you.
    Jan 11, 2018 12:25 PM - Dan: What's up guys
    Jan 11, 2018 12:35 PM - Geof: hey Dan
    Jan 11, 2018 12:37 PM - Dan: Geof - just emailed you
    Jan 11, 2018 12:37 PM - Dan: tell me what parts you want lol
    Jan 11, 2018 12:58 PM - Geof: hey Dan,
    Jan 11, 2018 12:58 PM - Geof: Just got back to you, thanks buddy! Much appreciated!

    Jan 12, 2018 at 5:07 AM - Geof: Morning Jeff. How goes it ?
    Jan 12, 2018 at 5:07 AM - JeffTheMess: it's goin' Happy Friday
    Jan 12, 2018 at 5:28 AM - WheresWaldo: Geof, the white PEI plate was a disaster. I have some Buildtak in my Amazon wish list, but what is online appears to be 0.5 mm and Robo appears to have used 0.8 mm sheets.
    Jan 12, 2018 at 5:40 AM - jim3Dbot: Hi WW, okay can pop in for a sec........but, as you may already know.....but, in case of.....PEI is prenear transparent to IR, assuming what's under the PEI is flat black......
    Jan 12, 2018 at 5:48 AM - Geof: If its real build tak I'm pretty sure its only one thickness ??? Maybe they have some "build grip" style stuff :D.
    Jan 12, 2018 at 5:54 AM - WheresWaldo: The PEI came from China, so who knows if it is actually PEI and it was solid white. But I did some repeatability tests on the two build plates I have and the black which was upon calibration much better at being consistent than the white. One thing when measured the white sheet triggered 17 mm higher than the black on Robo's IR. neither was perfect the White had a range of alm ost .4 mm and the Black was about .2 mm range between highest and prob
    Jan 12, 2018 at 5:55 AM - WheresWaldo: lowest probe points.
    Jan 12, 2018 at 5:59 AM - WheresWaldo: I can't find anywhere on Buildtak's website where they mention the thickness, you wouldn't happen to know offhand what it is?
    Jan 12, 2018 at 7:02 AM - Geof: not offhand
    Jan 12, 2018 at 7:02 AM - Geof: I dont think I have any spare sheets running around anymore

    Jan 14, 2018 7:43 AM - MaxGause: I have a Robo r3 Plus rinter and was curious to know if any of you may know the max safe extruder temperature.
    Jan 14, 2018 8:36 AM - Geof: So a robo R1+. Can't recall what the shut off I with stock hotend and firmware. I think 250-260 C
    Jan 14, 2018 8:47 AM - WheresWaldo: Actually 280° C or 290° C in the Robo firmware, depending on version.
    Jan 14, 2018 8:48 AM - WheresWaldo: Latest versions, original was as low as Geof says.
    Jan 14, 2018 4:02 PM - Scott Tobin: Any of the XXL lcd users here use autotemp?
    Jan 14, 2018 4:12 PM - Scott Tobin: Also what does the change filiment feature do as far as movement compared to pausing the print, raising the z axis, changing filament, lowering z and resuming? thanks
    Jan 14, 2018 4:29 PM - Geof: Scott, are you using stock firmware ?
    Jan 14, 2018 4:30 PM - Geof: Your best bet is to start a thread with questions :)
    Jan 14, 2018 4:47 PM - Scott Tobin: I modified the original firmware some but otherwise stock, yes. Was just a curiosity question as I can never get autotemp to work but it really isnt something i need. Thanks anyways though :)
    Jan 14, 2018 4:48 PM - Scott Tobin: But how is the 1.7 firmware, is there any noticable difference in print quality from stock firmware to 1.7 or is it just more user control within the firmware?
    Jan 14, 2018 4:54 PM - Geof: I use nm
    Jan 14, 2018 4:54 PM - Geof: Mesh firmware
    Jan 14, 2018 4:55 PM - Geof: Can't really confirm all or any of the upsides other than leveling sequences
    Jan 14, 2018 7:53 PM - WheresWaldo: If you use the Community version of 1.1.7 found here, there are definite print quality improvements. If for no other reason that the motion settings are better for the printer than the stock settings.

    Jan 15, 2018 at 3:05 AM - Kilrah: yay, laser arrived
    Jan 15, 2018 at 4:58 AM - daniel871: Firmware has a lot less to do with print quality than: The settings in your slicer software, quality of filament & quality of machine.
    Jan 15, 2018 at 5:04 AM - WheresWaldo: Dan, of course that is true, since nearly every setting in firmware can be set in Gcode. But why not start with a good base. Let the firmware hardware have a fighting chance to do all the things ist is supposed to do, then you only need minor tweaks specific to filament or model in your slicer.
    Jan 15, 2018 at 5:20 AM - Geof: Happy Monday
    Jan 15, 2018 at 5:23 AM - WheresWaldo: Morning Geof, how was your weekend?
    Jan 15, 2018 at 5:33 AM - Geof: not to shabby. Didn't do much, the lady was sick so only ran the Moai (the others were bugging her migraine :()
    Jan 15, 2018 at 5:34 AM - Geof: How about you?
    Jan 15, 2018 at 5:35 AM - Scott Tobin: Well my Monday sucks because the printer isn’t working again :confused:
    Jan 15, 2018 at 5:36 AM - Scott Tobin: It looks like the x axis is shifting mid print.
    Jan 15, 2018 at 5:43 AM - Geof: R1 series or R2/C2
    Jan 15, 2018 at 5:50 AM - WheresWaldo: Had to get a new keyboard. Spilled Coke on mine, thankl goodness I had insurance so cost was just the difference. Finally got my Cherry MX Brown switch mechanical keyboard.
    Jan 15, 2018 at 5:52 AM - WheresWaldo: Other than that watched some football and spent most of Sunday relaxing. No printing at all.
    Jan 15, 2018 at 6:03 AM - Geof: insurance on a keyboard? Hardcore man lol.
    Jan 15, 2018 at 6:21 AM - WheresWaldo: Yep
    Jan 15, 2018 at 6:21 AM - WheresWaldo: Allowed me to return for price paid and get a new upgrade for the difference.
    Jan 15, 2018 at 6:22 AM - Geof: thats pretty slick. I use a 2 dolla keyboard ;) lol
    Jan 15, 2018 at 6:29 AM - WheresWaldo: Once you switch to a mechanical keyboard, you have one that will last nearly forever. Plus onld people like me that learned to type on IBM selectric typewriters prefer the comforting click they provide, gamers prefer them also.
    Jan 15, 2018 at 6:33 AM - WheresWaldo: I actually have an IBM Model M clone made by Unicomp. It even uses new buckling spring switches and will outlive me. http://www.pckeyboard.com/page/product/UB40P3A
    Jan 15, 2018 at 9:49 AM - Greg Sheets: afternoon all... digging my way out of the holidays and wife's "forced" move of R1(kickstarter) from basement to upstairs office, urgh! Anyway, I'm on 1.1.0RC6. It works with MESH, and I"ve been hesitant on upgrading firmware. Is 1.1.7 or .8 good to load or do they have issues?
    Jan 15, 2018 at 11:20 AM - Geof: unsure, I'm still using an old firmware and have no issues. Big fan of not broke, dont fix it :D
    Jan 15, 2018 at 11:44 AM - mark tomlinson: Someone 'gets' it :)
    Jan 15, 2018 at 11:52 AM - Geof: I'm hovering that line today ;)
    Jan 15, 2018 at 2:08 PM - Scott Tobin: Back to the x axis shift mid print it is on a R1+ new from amzon... returned another one with the same issue... Works good for 100hrs or so printing then does this.
    Jan 15, 2018 at 2:23 PM - Scott Tobin: Dont believe it is the slicer... does it on both cura and matter control

    Jan 16, 2018 at 6:32 AM - Geof: Hey Scott if you wold please start a trouble shooting thread. Axis skips are typically pretty easy to fix and can avoid a return :D
    Jan 16, 2018 at 7:52 AM - daniel871: Based on what I've seen on the Internet, the eventual creation of Skynet is going to be entirely due to the presence of Nazis and Furries.

    Jan 17, 2018 6:07 AM - WheresWaldo: $12 a 1kg spool
    Jan 17, 2018 6:08 AM - WheresWaldo: Plus they have some promotions running too. Never used it before but it is cheap enough to try out.
    Jan 17, 2018 6:09 AM - WheresWaldo: 15% off 2, buy 3 / 1 free, buy 5 / 2 free, buy 7 / 3 free.
    Jan 17, 2018 6:12 AM - WheresWaldo: As low as $8.40 @ for 10 spools. And it is Prime eligible.
    Jan 17, 2018 6:15 AM - daniel871: I think Geof may have tried them the last time they had spools in stock and ran a sale.
    Jan 17, 2018 6:16 AM - WheresWaldo: Just red and green is that cheap
    Jan 17, 2018 9:29 AM - Geof: Waldo, its junk. I bought 10 spools and was able to run 3.
    Jan 17, 2018 9:30 AM - Geof: issues midway through the rolls.
    Jan 17, 2018 9:30 AM - Geof: they replaced the spools and whatnot and I have not had a chance to try (not all 8, just a few)
    Jan 17, 2018 9:30 AM - Geof: they ended up refunding me as well.
    Jan 17, 2018 9:41 AM - WheresWaldo: Good to know
    Jan 17, 2018 4:08 PM - Scott Tobin: There is a brand called Tianse filament on amazon which usually sells for 18 a kg but frequently goes on sale for 15 and I have had great luck with it.
    Jan 17, 2018 4:24 PM - Scott Tobin: Seems to also be on there rebranded as repko filament for 13
    Jan 17, 2018 5:00 PM - Geof: I use a lot of repko. Colors arnt as opaque as I'd like but it runs well
    Jan 17, 2018 5:26 PM - Scott Tobin: I upgraded to that 1.1.7 firmware made by danzca and i seem to have an underextrusion problem now. Im still using the stock hotend. It runs normal ish looking if I set the flow to about 200 but I kinda want to figure out what is up with it.
