    What printers do you all use?

    Hey Viper16 do you have the diagnostics set up for the TMC2208 or are you using it in Legacy mode? It look like there is an easy way to set up the board for UART diagnostics then you can change between modes easily and set up power usage via G-Codes without having to reflash firmware. I am going...

    What printers do you all use?

    guitarslingerchris The noise would be helped moving to 24V, some. Also SpreadCycle is crappy at low rpms that is why Hybrid mode exists. Viper16 I wanted a Duet Maestro but I already had a MKS SBase and when I decided to dump the TronXY board, I got the SKR from BigTreeTech, then since I already...

    What printers do you all use?

    Viper16 except we are speaking about a specific use case, yes the A4988 are cheap, but they are much better than TMC2208 for an extruder, which tends to run the stepper very hot. Extruder steppers have a very different use profile over axis movement steppers so the requirements are different. I...

    What printers do you all use?

    guitarslingerchris I was pointed to the LV8729 on the RepRap forums when I was researching the TMC2130's. Almost every person who had TMC2130 for X, Y and Z went with something else for the extruder stepper. I was actually very surprised to see that. I have some TMC2208's, LV8729 and A4988...

    What printers do you all use?

    Hmm. some different choices there. I too have a project printer, I print on a Robo 3D R2 and a HercuLien (Ultimaker kinematics). But my project printer is a TronXY X5-400 So far the upgrades include: E3D Titan Aero Clone with Volcano hotend, 0.6mm nozzle and 50W 24V heater cartridge. 40 mm...

    Additional cooling for Prusa MK2?

    You might need to adjust slicer settings to introduce a vertical hop when making moves, S3D = Edit Process > Extruder > Retraction vertical lift Cura = Settings > Travel > Z-hop when retracted Matter Control = Advanced Settings > Filament > Retraction > Z Lift Alternatively, you can find the...

    Additional cooling for Prusa MK2?

    With PEI sheets, you can print PLA with no bed heating, but I generally warm the bed to about 40°C anyway. If your prints stick too well, you can use a release agent. My goto release agent is the dollar store hairspray helps with adhesion but releases completely when cooled. Cooling fans on PLA...

    Additional cooling for Prusa MK2?

    Normally there should have been more information provided to give you an accurate assessment of the issue, like what filament, what bed temp, etc. But typically you would not want parts cooling on the first several layers to insure proper bed adhesion. Also some filaments (ABS for example) do...

    Alphacool Eiskoffer Lucky Draw

    I am a hard tubing fan and have designed and 3D printed custom jigs to get bends that I want in hard tubing. This kit would put all my hard tubing tools in one place. About time I redo my water cooled rig. I already use Alphacool rads, so this would just complete the setup.

    Thousands Of 3D Printers and Files Exposed Online

    Speedier Broadband Standards? Pai’s FCC Says 25Mbps Is Fast Enough

    Someone at the FCC's IT department should create some QOS rules for Ajit that limits him to those specific speeds and slower depending on network traffic then you will see him move on raising those limits. It is always easy for the HAVE's to tell the HAVENOT's to be content with what you already...

    WD 8TB Easystores are Back for 150$

    If you are using the USB3 interface there is very little perceivable difference in speed as opposed to connecting straight to a SATA connector. I wanted to build a self contained media server so I needed all the drives inside my PC case (CM Master Case 5 Pro). Now have 40 TB of storage for all...

    WD 8TB Easystores are Back for 150$

    Not really any need to shuck the drive for just backups. If you do shuck the drive you do have to contend with removing 3.3v from the SATA power connector. It is used to disable the drive for enterprise use and your PC won't recognize it if 3.3V is applied.

    Influence Buying Comes Under Fire

    There were a lot of companies like this on Amazon until they scaled it back with new rules. Some more honest than others. I joined one network that either sold products at a huge discount or gave some away free in excahange for posted reviews. They did require a disclaimer at the beginning of...

    NVIDIA Releases Firmware Update For Displayport 1.3 and 1.4

    This is all the information you get if the update is required. And this is what it says after an update is complete. There are a lot of screen flickers and resolution changes during the update. My monitor which was connected at the time is running off the DisplayPort. I performed the update on...

    What printers do you all use?

    Currently have a heavily modified Robo R1, a custom Marlin firmware based Robo R2, and a cheap Chinese LCD based resin printer. Thinking of getting a delta just to play with, something small like a Monoprice or similar.

    Gigabyte X470 Auros Ultra Gaming, USB 2.0 ports don't initialize.

    I have a similar issue, with a warm boot the USB 2.0 ports seem to be unavailable. A power off and reboot will always initialize the USB 2.0. I do not have this same issue with the USB 3.0 ports.

    Nitro Concepts S300 Gaming Chair Build

    I still think you'll get that build time down to 10 minutes since all these chairs are basically the same frame. Curious how do you like those plastic wheels, I just swapped the wheels on my old chair to roller blade wheels cand couldn't be happier. My current chair is almost as old as the...

    Corsair T1 RACE Gaming Chair Unboxing and Assembly

    If you keep reviewing these chairs you will soon be an expert at assembling them, especially since there is little to no innovation in this market segment. I expect soon these videos will only be 10 minutes in length. It is not bad looking all assembled. But I think I'll stick with my Craigslist...

    Mozilla TALK with Better Butthurt Exclusion Tools

    bigdogchris 100% agree, and that does not apply to sites like this since this is a small dedicated community. Others like it, usually specific to niche topics also generally create a more sharing atmosphere. General news sites allowing all commentators, even moderated tend to drop to the lowest...

    *Warning* Gigabyte x370 Gaming 5 F7

    THUMPer You always take a risk with new BIOS. This issue should have been immediately apparent to Gigabyte and then the release delayed. They had two months to put out this piece of shit, and no one spotted it! If something as simple as this is broken you simply can't know what more complex...

    Bykski has new Threadripper block

    Only thing I find a bit odd about their mounting system is that it appears to be just four screws and not spring loaded. I am sure Kyle will tell us if that causes any issues or is somehow different than how Bykski pictured it.

    Bykski has new Threadripper block

    Yep water cooling has come a long way, you can pretty much mix and match since going to the G1/4 standard fittings. The only thing you have to pay attention to, there are a lot of sizes for hard tubing, both english and metric and differing tube wall thicknesses.

    Fighter Pilot Augmented Reality Technology Melds with the Consumer Cycling World

    I am still a rather avid cyclist, but would be reluctant to invest in this particular device. The press release says it is not their "core business" so be prepared for an abandoned product if it is not initially commercially successful. No pricing was mentioned either and there are at least two...
