    Jan 21, 2019 7:34 PM - AbbyV: Hi... we're new to this forum and to 3D printing... got an R1 Plus for Christmas... printed several things... haven't used for a day or so... today, printed one thing tnough needed a couple restarts... extruder "hit" the bed then went high.. after a reboot was ok; trying a new thing now... but... extruder is "stuck" up in the top of the R1 Plus... way at the top... Matter Control X, Y & Z buttons not bringing it down. Help! (?)
    Jan 21, 2019 7:41 PM - AbbyV: I decided to try to print one more thing tonight... and once the extruder warmed up, it moved even higher, grinding the gears... seems like the printer doesn't recognize where the extruder is... how to "reset" the X Y & Z coordinates?

    Jan 22, 2019 5:20 AM - Geof: thank you!

    Feb 5, 2019 7:31 AM - max longstaff: replaced the r1 extruder with a reprap one do i need to reverse the stepper motor
    Feb 5, 2019 7:57 AM - WheresWaldo: Hey @Geof Ultibots has PLA 1Kg spools for $10 each.
    Feb 5, 2019 7:58 AM - WheresWaldo: They have some PETG too for $10
    Feb 5, 2019 7:59 AM - WheresWaldo: They must be clearing out their filaments.
    Feb 5, 2019 8:01 AM - WheresWaldo: https://www.ultibots.com/filament/
    Feb 5, 2019 8:45 AM - Geof: Hey Waldo! Thanks for the heads up! Will check it out! Man the last time on was on their site was for 5lb spools of ABS years ago :D
    Feb 5, 2019 8:50 AM - WheresWaldo: The email says they are closing shop, so eliminating all stock
    Feb 5, 2019 8:53 AM - Geof: ah gotya. Shows 18 bucks to ship 5 spools...I'm out lol.
    Feb 5, 2019 9:15 AM - WheresWaldo: Still only $13 per spool
    Feb 5, 2019 9:26 AM - Geof: I get PLA at around 9.50 a kg from most places these days :D But I buy quite a bit at a time (free shipping lol)
    Feb 5, 2019 9:40 AM - WheresWaldo: Hey Geof, I got the Tronxy printing, can almost print PETG at 120 mm/s it is too bad the hotend just can't keep up with that speed on larger prints. I have a Titan Aero coming and plan on putting a Volcano hot zone on this thing. except for the crappy proprietary firmware and the very noisy extruder it is about 65 db
    Feb 5, 2019 9:42 AM - WheresWaldo: That is for a completely open printer, even the R2 is much noier than thaty and it is all encased in plastic.
    Feb 5, 2019 11:17 AM - TransBat: Has anyone checked out the upcoming Robo E3 printer: https://robo3d.com/collections/3d-printers/products/robo-e3
    Feb 5, 2019 11:17 AM - TransBat: Randomly hit my Twitter feed this AM -made a quick post in the Off-topic section - was curious if anyone knew more about it?
    Feb 5, 2019 11:24 AM - WheresWaldo: Its a relabeled Flashforge Adventurer
    Feb 5, 2019 11:25 AM - WheresWaldo: http://www.flashforge.com/3d-printer/adventurer-3/
    Feb 5, 2019 11:26 AM - WheresWaldo: Of course the Adventurer 3 is a whole bunch cheaper. At least this one is cheaper than the R2
    Feb 5, 2019 12:17 PM - TransBat: That's what I determined too Flashforge Adventurer 3, which is the same thing Monoprice rebranded as their Voxel. Is this what they've been working on since the R2/C2, posied as a C2 replacement, ot just somethig to help their StemKits initiative.
    Feb 5, 2019 12:29 PM - WheresWaldo: Education market only I beleive.
    Feb 5, 2019 1:40 PM - Geof: Hey Waldo, send me some pics of that beastm.

    Feb 8, 2019 at 8:58 PM - Wells: Hey can someone please assist me?
    Feb 8, 2019 at 8:59 PM - Wells: My robo 3d R1+ goes up when printing, when it should go down. I've tried firmware update and switching the cables on the limit switches
    Feb 9, 2019 at 5:46 PM - Geof: Hi wells-please start a troubleshooting thread, but z goin up is almost always the two z switches being out of place. There is a video in the sticky (top) of troubleshooting that shows the issue and how to fix

    Feb 11, 2019 9:47 AM - toymaker: geof, ive been reading steinmetz =)
    Feb 11, 2019 9:48 AM - Geof: lol glutton for punishment?
    Feb 11, 2019 9:48 AM - toymaker: i get it
    Feb 11, 2019 9:48 AM - toymaker: well mostly
    Feb 11, 2019 9:49 AM - toymaker: dielectric line of force.... duh
    Feb 11, 2019 9:52 AM - toymaker: no wonder the MM experiment was a null... they where looking at only the em aspect without considering measuring the speed of the dielectric only
    Feb 11, 2019 9:57 AM - Geof: well above my knowledge ;) :D

    Feb 18, 2019 4:32 PM - DavidR: speed of dielectric?
    Feb 18, 2019 4:33 PM - DavidR: by MM do you mean Michelson Morley?
    Feb 18, 2019 4:55 PM - DavidR: I'm not certain what you mean by the "speed of the dielectric". The major consequence of that expirement was tangential---they couldn't figure out why they always measured light at the same speed irrespective of their own movement.
