Help adjusting Z-axis homing speed

I'm having issues with the Z-axis motor on an almost-3 y/o makergear. When the z-axis rises at a fast speed, it slips and lowers despite the motor attempting to push the plate up. It can't resist the force of gravity of the build plate. I'm looking in to potentially buying another motor or seeing if...

Re: Rambo E0 output fried. Need help to utilize E1 output.

Could you state what I'd need to change in S3D? I've tried that and haven't been able to get it to work.

Rambo E0 output fried. Need help to utilize E1 output.

Hi,

My extruder motor has stopped working. I've somehow fried the E0 output and its no longer sending a proper signal. I am SURE this is my issue (not cable, motor, etc.)

I use simplify3D. Could someone help me to utilize the E1 output on the Rambo board in place of the E0 output?

Thanks,

Re: M2 (less than month old) suddenly printing poorly

My printer is making a strange noise. I thought it was a wire cover scraping against the frame but it is not, seems to be coming from my extruder. Tried to upload it to vid.me and tiny url but neither is working. I've uploaded it here https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2ZcS-iTS_jqZzFTZHRfdzdHWHc/view...

Re: Dual Extruder Upgrade - Limited Availability

Thanks! So the difference between the V4 and V3b is that the V4 will just allow higher temperatures?

Re: Z-axis knob

I posted a while ago that I had spare "rubber feet" but did not know what they were for. I just realized one of these same parts has appeared on the ground under my printer. Not sure where it came from. I'm mid-print with no issues, so I'll let this go and figure out where the part is from after the...

Re: M2 (less than month old) suddenly printing poorly

I have not gotten back to a .35mm nozzle. Need to get some paint stripper for my clogged one, I can't unscrew it. Switched to a .5mm nozzle. Had bridge nylon prints that worked, but weren't as good as the .35mm nozzle prints I had done. May be my uncertainty in which settings to use (used these sett...

Re: Materials printed on M2

I had mentioned in here earlier that a glue stick wasn't helping nylon nor PLA stick. I got a new glue stick (elmers brand), and it works. So don't skimp and get generic! The first glue stick was purple and this new one is white, maybe they are different materials. Neither stick says what it actuall...
