Re: HUGE blob

Could you post some photos of the blob? I want to see if the plastic has wrapped around your hotends wiring. In general the resolution to this would be to reheat the toolhead to extrusion temperature and after it had sat at temperature for a little while to very gently try to remove the blob, but if...

Re: Taz 6 - not reading SD Card

I had the same problem today. I have a 64 Gb card around and I tried to use that one to print. "Card Inserted" but then "No SD card". I saw a post where someone said that you could download a software to correctly format SD cards from https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/index.html Tried th...

Re: Saving from Cura to SD Card

Just to confirm, have you tried to load the file from the same SD Card on to each printer and 2 of the 5 give you an error? If so this most likely will relate to those printers rather than the way the files are being saved to the SD Card. What kind of printers are you working with? Are they Taz's, M...

Re: Noise when extruder near the top coming downward

We actually don't recommend using lithium grease on the threaded rods any more as we found it could dissolve the polymer in the drive nut and cause more problems. I would suggest trying to clean the threaded rod with a clean cloth that won't leave behind fibers and make sure there isn't anything cau...

Re: Z stuck, belts grinding, problems everywhere

I have my fingers crossed for you that it is something else, but knowing that since the new board was installed the nozzle was cleaned with a wire brush which is something that we know can damage the RAMBo, and that 2 of your endstops are triggering on the same axis at the same time that is unfortun...

Re: Taz 4 Aerostruder

As long as your Taz 4 has been updated to include the necessary harnessing to run our Hexagon hotend then it will be compatible with the Aerostruder. You will just need to flash it as a Taz 5 which, as long as a PEI was also added along with the wiring changes, for all intents and purposes your prin...

Re: Z stuck, belts grinding, problems everywhere

Thanks for doing that test! Sadly since both your Y-Min and Y-Max are triggering simultaneously most likely the board has been damaged. You could try swapping those endstops for a different set of endstop on your RAMBo like the Y-Min and Y-Max (with the power turned off of course) and see if the pro...

Re: Z stuck, belts grinding, problems everywhere

Thank you for those screenshots of your machine settings! Since you are working with Cura 3.2.27 to check your endstops you will want to start by making sure your printer is connected to Cura and that your toolhead and print bed are centered so none of the endstop switches will be held down. Then cl...

Re: Can the Aerostruder print 1.75mm filament?

The Aerostruder has about the same amount of capability for printing 1.75mm filament as our standard Mini toolhead. Which is to say it isn't really what the toolhead was built for so adjustments need to be made to the settings to get the same quality prints and I always recommend keeping a closer ey...

Re: g-code to restore previos fan speed

The M106 command should be what you need it will just need some additional coding along with it. I am not an expert with GCode by any means but this page might be helpful: http://marlinfw.org/docs/gcode/M106.html

It says that "M106 P<fan> T1 restores the previous fan speed."
