Re: Klipper

I'm looking at this as well. there is also a Pi hat available with SMC2130 drivers on it.

I have a flexion with an all metal E3D and was dying to try out linear advance. Yes please! I have the silver Z motor as well. I would really like t...

No more walk away! M2 Secured!

Hey everyone, I want to share my success story from last night. I’m very pleased with myself for reading the forum and researching inspiration online and finally completed an easy, inexpensive and effective solution for vibration, walk away, and security (because why not). Went to Lowe’s and purchas...

Re: HBP power wire broken

If you're up for a learning experience, get a few feet of red + black fine-strand 14 AWG silicone wire, harvest the connectors from the old cable, fire up your soldering iron, and see what happens. Good wire runs a bit over a buck a foot from Amazon, at least from reputable sellers. You want fine-s...

HBP power wire broken

so my printer must be getting to the age in it's life when stuff starts to wear out. It's a shame because if I had printed the wire support from Thingiverse this might not have happened. One of the red power wires broke near the HBP and it seems wasteful to replace the whole thing but that's all tha...

Re: Do I need to update my Firmware?

Hi Guys, Thanks for your responses. I went ahead and flashed the firmware with the version recommended on the Wiki and it's working great. I haven't noticed any heat on my old silver Z motor but I'll keep an eye on it. It's kind of frustrating because I've asked Makergear about upgrading/replacing t...

Do I need to update my Firmware?

I have an Old Machine (silver Z motor) 24v & v4 hotend. Just updated to the V4 hotend and the instructions don't say anything about updating the firmware but I'm concerned that the Wiki mentions different firmware for the V4 vs. The V3b and I imagine it has to do with the heater/thermistor. Thanks f...
