Excellent, I've done just that. Still dislike the all-in-one solution, but at that cost I can live with it.

Re: Replacement Controller - Fried Z Driver

I'm not sure how I would go about hooking up a separate Pololu stepper driver to the RAMBo. I'm sure it's possible, but I'm not in any rush to get back and printing otherwise I would have already gotten a RAMBo replacement.

Re: Replacement Controller - Fried Z Driver

Dang, solid point. I could have sworn it had 2 power inputs. I know the Pro version has 3, so maybe I just got confused. Edit: It appears that it does include a secondary power input that is dedicated for the stepper motors: http://files.panucatt.com/datasheets/x3_v2_wiring.pdf I do have to wonder t...

Re: Replacement Controller - Fried Z Driver

Ya I'm not all that worried about current as the Azteeg drivers and board are rated for 2.5A while the RAMBo is only rated for 2A. Also I can always run the second z stepper in parallel off a separate driver if necessary.

Replacement Controller - Fried Z Driver

Hey All, so I'm the unlucky guy who's heatsink fell off and it managed to touch something it shouldn't have frying the z stepper driver. So now I'm in the market for a new controller. I've done a decent level of research into boards, firmware, etc and have come down to two choices and was hoping to ...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

Ya, I don't have an enclosure and the printer is in a spare bedroom where it's 76F. Also no need to wait for it to cool down. It's definitely fried. I actually heard the noise of it frying a few rooms away. Now I just need to decide if I want to spend $220 on a new RAMBo board or a different board l...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

*sigh* I've got good news and bad news: The Good: Updated the gcode to print entirely at 60mms, was working great. Got K0 and K25 test prints done and was working on a K50 print. The Bad: My TAZ 5 has released the magic smoke and no longer works. =( The Z-Axis driver burnt to a crisp, and I found th...

Is the print speed slowed down due to cooling settings?
Ah, that might be it. I'll turn off cooling speed reduction and have everything print at the same speed and reprint.

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

Hmm, not sure if I did something wrong or the K value isn't needed with the Titan extruder. From left to right (preview rotated bottom to top): Stock, K0, K15, K30 printing now but looking identical to these three. Using Simplify3d, 0.2 layer height, 205 temperature, 50 mm/s print speed, 1.5mm retra...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

Alright, spent the entire weekend fine tuning the slicer and stock firmware settings before jumping into this new firmware. Here's the before results: Pimples from retraction, Z-Wobble, Overhang blobs, but over all one of the best prints I've gotten from my TAZ 5. Tomorrow will be new firmware testi...
