Re: Novice CR10s PRO CURA 4 user - direct print ??

First, check your connection setup. You should be able to go into monitor mode and use the controls to move your printer axis or set temperatures for the bed and the nozzle. If those don't work, your connection isn't setup right. Assuming Windows, check device manager to see if a serial device shows...

Re: A long sad tale...

Not seeing a video. Aside from that, some simple tests: Since X & Y work, try swapping X or Y with Z. After swap, just move the two axis independently. This will eliminate a lot of possible issues (cable, motor, controller, etc). Don't try to do full range motion, just 10 mm or so, away from 0 (so a...

Re: Testing out a new style!

Erm, not seeing the quick reply window here. Nothing has changed on my end. What am I missing? Screenshot from 2019-06-01 01-35-19.png Also, yes I do see that the circle is red when there are unread posts. Just harder to see than the previous icons. And I agree that we need more traffic. I really ha...

Re: Testing out a new style!

I have to agree. Also, there is hardly any indication of which forums have new posts as the forum icon is now an empty circle with a very thin line that changes color.

And what happened to the quick reply form?

Re: Help to chose printer

Not expensive and 3-5 colors. Are you printing multicolor at the same time? Or color change at layer height? Is this for a production run or just prototyping? Lots of questions here. I think the lowest budget you will get is to buy a decent chinese printer (Creality is decent enough), and pair it u...

Re: What is everyone doing

Between working for a startup as Senior DevOps Engineer and dealing with medical issues (HCM), I rarely get time to do much printing. I mostly monitor this and other forums in the morning between shower and getting dressed for work (air dry). I really need to slow down soon, just haven't figured out...

Re: Bought a used Hictop 3DP17 from a local chap...

I am finally getting around to doing something with my little-hicci (3DP-17). Starting by printing Roberts_Clif cable chain for X axis, and firmware update. Using Big-Hicci (CR-10S) to print the chain parts (it was already loaded & leveled). Lots to do to it to get it up to snuff. I'm printing the X...

Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

You should be able to source them at Ace Hardware or even a car parts store. But I see what you mean. Amazon has them from $4-$140 (in quantity).

Re: V1 Engineering's Piper

For the conduit, I haven't had a problem with it being rough. Standard EMT is usually fairly smooth. If anything, you will want to go over it with steel wool to remove the lettering and shine it up a bit.

Good luck on your build.

Re: Parts Sticking to Blue Tape on Only 1 of 2 Identical Printers!

How are you leveling? It could be simply that your print head is closer on this printer (by 0.015-0.1). It doesn't take much.

I have a bed leveling test, but it was designed for the CR10 300mmx300mm bed. It is very useful for the final tuning.

Re: What is everyone doing

The printer uses ethernet cables to communicate back to the controller. As it turns out, that's a very noisy way to do things. More on that later! I wonder if they are using solid core or stranded wire? You can tell by how stiff the wires are. I read last night in the instructions for my digital da...

As to the CNC, everything I needed to know is in this video. Just need time to build one.
