Need some advice on a suction device

Hey guys, I'm setting up a ventilation system using this pool hose . What would you guys suggest I use as the suction device? I was thinking of lining up a couple computer fans, or using a hairdryer without the heat coils :D, but I was just wondering if there were other options that you guys think w...

Re: Move Z-Endstop to the bottom

Kind of got it I followed this thingiverse thing's instructions: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1645866 It does everything normal, but a second after it wipes the nozzle on the bed, it makes a loud squeaky noise and the bed drops to the bottom. After that it continues printing like nothing happene...

Move Z-Endstop to the bottom

Hey guys, I'm trying to move the z-endstop to the bottom using makergear's bottom z endstop mount (https://github.com/MakerGear/M2/blob/master/Experimental%20Parts/Z%20Probe%20for%20auto-level/Bottom_Z_Endstop_Mount.STL), but I'm having trouble due to lack of information. I saw that Rick asked every...

Re: What's wrong with this print?

Thanks!! I finally got it now! I ended up putting my extrusion multiplier to 115%.
Hmmmm, just noticed your post 13brv3. I'll see if it helps at all, and I'll reply back if it does.

Re: What's wrong with this print?

TONS better, but it still has some problems. Tried printing a bigger piece because the cubes were looking promising, but I don't think the layers adhered very well to each other. I attached some pictures. I'm thinking increasing the extrusion multiplier will help but the only time I'm able to duplic...

Re: What's wrong with this print?

Thanks! I can definitely tell it helped, but it still does the same thing, just not as bad. Before I waste anymore plastic, any ideas on what else I should change? Thanks a lot!
P.S. here's some pictures of one of the parts I attempted to print. It breaks apart with very little effort

Re: What's wrong with this print?

Sorry :? - I'm printing hatchbox's black pla at 215 degrees - I have a .35mm nozzle on a v4 extruder, and I have the primary layer height set to .3mm - Extrusion width is on auto, and I changed the extrusion multiplier throughout the print from around 50 to 150% but I couldn't get it to print proper...

Need help setting M80 and M81

I just got my relay from the store and I built everything here http://www.instructables.com/id/Converting-12v24v-power-supply-to-remote-G-code-sw/?ALLSTEPS except for the last part where it says to plug it in to the ramps board. I scrolled all the way to the bottom and it showed me how to connect it...
