Re: M3 Probes Breaking

Did I see correctly that the m3 uses a bl touch? Oh man how I despise those things. One of the projects on my list is to convert my z-probe-less M2 to accept a piezo disk so the nozzle will act as the probe. I did a piezo conversion on my other printer and have to say that it’s the best z probe I h...

Re: M3 ID V0 Probe upgrade install

Weird. Bltouch documentation lists that. Check with makergear support, maybe it’s something custom It's working as intended. Makergear support says they decided to change G28 so it does an auto-level each time. I wish they hadn't, seems like it should be an option, or that people could just update ...

Re: M3 ID V0 Probe upgrade install

G28 actually does home. G29 is what does auto leveling. Nope. Not on my printer. "G28 Z" will "home" the bed by probing the center position only. "G28" with no arguments homes X & Y, then probes at least 6 points. I've done this several times. Perhaps it's a bug but that's what it does right now. W...

Re: M3 ID V0 Probe upgrade install

One side effect of the upgrade seems to be a shift in the Y axis of some 20 mm. Anyone else notice this? Also, G28 now does a multi-point probing of the entire bed, every time. I find this really annoying, it takes a long time, and I doubt the bed is going to go out of level all that quickly. I can...

Re: M2 rev.E - black z motor leadscrew pitch?

Hey thanks for that great idea. I actually had a noctua fan that was the exact right size for the psu laying around. I just put it in and the psu is at least 1000 times less noisy than it used to be. Awesome! edit: ill upload the z spring when I upload the parts for adapting to the duet very nice. ...

Re: M2 rev.E - black z motor leadscrew pitch?

Yep, thinking of getting the duet ethernet board to try out. This is the fan I used https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009NQMESS/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 60mmx25mm. Only red and black wires are used. Just splice to existing connector. Fan fits right in and barely hear it. Also PSU ...

Re: M2 rev.E - black z motor leadscrew pitch?

Thank you. I didn't work with duet before but it seems doable.

Btw you can replace PSU fan. I replaced mine with Noctua and its much quieter now.

what is the blue 3d part for?
