Re: Z table drops

Okay, if M84 S0 sets the timeout to 0 and disables it, does M84 S60 set it to 60 seconds/60 minutes ?

Z table drops

Apparently there is some sort of timeout for the z height. When I have adjusted the table to do a table level or adjust nozzles, after a certain time the table drops down to the ground position, usually before I'm done. Is there any way to disable this or change the timeout time?

Re: Z motor problems HELP

I went in a cleaned and oiled everything, lithium grease on the z-screw. Had a minor heart attack when none of the motors worked, until discovered that the main power connector in back had come a little lose when I turned the printer to work on it. Everything seems to be working again. I am trying a...

Z motor problems HELP

I just went to use my MakerGear M2 Dual again after it messed up a print last night. It started to raise the build table, made a terrible screaming grinding noise and went back down to the bottom. It sounds like the motor and/or drive gear is stripped. Has anyone else had this problem or has insight...

2nd Nozzle Ripping up build from 1st Nozzle

I have this problem with my Dual Nozzle M2. As I am laying down the first layer, the other nozzle catches on any projection and rips it up, ruining the piece. I've check to make sure both nozzles are at the same height cold. This would appear to be an unavoidable problem which will only get worse wi...

Installing software on Upgraded Dual Extruder M2

I have a MakerGear M2 that I've been very pleased with. A few months ago I bought the dual extruder upgrade. The hardware installation was difficult because the instructions were confusing, but I think I got that finally. Then came the software and I'm lost. I gave up and the printer has sat there w...

Re: Dual Extruder Part Problem

I never looked at the bottom of the belt lock. Apparently some of the nuts got pushed out. Thank you for straightening it out for me :-)

Dual Extruder Part Problem

I got the dual extruder upgrade a month or so ago and finally had time to try to install it. I got as far as page 3 where it says to put the belt clamp on the belt and fasting the mounting plate to the clamp and tighten the bolts. Half of the bolts will not tighten. One of them slides all the way in...
