Re: M3-ID Rev. 1

I am also very interested in upgrading my M3-ID to add the touch probe. Has anyone done this using the BL Touch?

Octoprint damaged - how do I re-install?

I have an M3ID which came with Octoprint installed on a Raspberry Pi. The Octoprint s/w has become damaged, it no longer functions correctly.

Re: MAKERGEAR M3-ID reviews

I've had an M3 ID for about a week or so now. one of the biggest improvements I see over the M2 (which I had previously) is the cooling fans. For one thing, I find that supports remove much more cleanly. Compared to prints made with the M2 of the same objects, overhanging sections are much cleaner.

Re: LCD Viki 2.0 vs Makergear LCD

Are you satisfied with the way the Makergear LCD works? I'm finding it rather difficult to use. It seems very "doggy" or slow to respond. I also have a Rostock Max V2 and the LCD interface on that is very responsive. This one seems to miss half the button presses. When I tried to use it to manually ...
