Re: Makergear M2 V3B 24V

Nothing major done. I printed a different cooling fan duct and added led lights to the fan duct (looks good). I added dampeners to the X and Y axis motors so it runs very quietly. I did the Mod to the HBP wires that's listed somewhere here in the forums that takes the stress off of the wires at the ...

Makergear M2 V3B 24V

After years of great performance I have decided to let me trusty M2 go :( I just don't use it enough to justify owning it. It is in excellent shape. Looks like the used market is right around $850 so that is what I will ask. Its been a wonderful adventure everyone! thanks for all the support through...

Re: Not reading SD card

Well, I plugged it into one of my USB 3.0 ports and now it works fine..... not sure that is what fixed it but it is thankfully working now! I am going to print a Saturn rocket to try and make a rocket "lamp" and it is going to be about 4 medium sized prints that will take about 6 hours apiece and I ...

Re: Not reading SD card

the card reader is connected properly. It was working fine before I did my computer reset. I had this issue once before a very long time ago but I don't remember what I did to fix it.

Re: Not reading SD card

no worries! Yes, it prints just fine from USB. I found the Rambo driver on the makergear website, found out I had already installed it.... the wires are all connected correctly. not sure whats up. I don't mind printing from USB but thats where I usually get failed prints because I accidentally shut ...

Not reading SD card

Hey guys, I recently had to do a wipe of my computer and start from scratch and now when I click "Print from SD card" nothing happens. I have tried multiple SD cards, I have the newest version of S3D.... I am assuming a driver issue but when I go to device manager and right click on Rambo and try to...

Re: Examples of your work

You're welcome to borrow Ed-209, just don't feed him after midnight! Also I am printing a scale model of the Mars Curiosity Rover as well.

Re: little help (how do I stop at a specific layer again?)

I figured out that using the cross section view gave me an accurate way to measure exactly what the height of where I wanted to stop the print would be. So i ended up using that method, I just totally forgot about it :) In another note, i am super proud of my M2!!! I have been printing prototypes fo...

Re: little help (how do I stop at a specific layer again?)

Thank you! It isn't for a color change, just need to stop the print but that will work. I can just stop it from there and start the next piece. I am just trying to avoid printing supports on this one spot, I would rather glue on the top piece later than to have the support. Thanks again! Glad to be ...

little help (how do I stop at a specific layer again?)

Hey guys, it has been two months since I have touched my printer (was overseas) and now I have a print job to do! I have to separate it into 3 parts and the middle piece needs to stop at layer 76. I know in S3D I can make it stop at a specific mm height, but how do I get that mm number from the laye...
