I'd consider it! I'll have to see after I pay this ticket I've gotten myself. I've got a Rev D. that has not been converted. You mention ambitious folks, but how ambitious are you entailing?

Re: Time for a new sheet of glass? Which thickness?

I was at a glass shop to get a window pane, so I asked about getting a piece of borosilicate glass as a backup. The owner was not familiar with borosilicate, but did have tempered glass on hand. After I did my online research, I decided against using tempered glass, and I would definitely NOT use r...

Time for a new sheet of glass? Which thickness?

Hi guys, this is a minor bit and I'm really looking for a little confirmation. When leveling my bed, it's kinda like my glass is warped. I could believe it, as I've thrown it in the freezer after a print to hurry the cooling process. While mostly safe from shattering/breaking, I couldn't say anythin...

Re: I've managed to cause the extruder motor to not turn

After reading through this whole thread, I'm inclined to think that this is a firmware issue, that the machine was purchased with non-stock options set in the firmware and some unusual wiring on the board. Flashing a stock firmware then causes bad things to happen. I wouldn't necessarily say that s...

Re: I've managed to cause the extruder motor to not turn

You might want to start a ticket with MakerGear support: http://www.makergear.com/pages/support Thank you, I'll give it a shot. I bought it used so no warranty for me. Now, if I can get a good firmware I'd have a starting place. I still don't know if my extruder motor wasn't working due to hardware...

Re: I've managed to cause the extruder motor to not turn

Nowhere near the board, no worries. The other end of those wires plugs into the RAMBo… that's where the damage happens. MOSFETs tend to fail shorted: should you discover you can't turn the fan off, now you know what happened. I see. I'm not sure what to start testing as I haven't had a good base to...

Re: I've managed to cause the extruder motor to not turn

Only looked like a spark between the two wires. Public Service Announcement ALWAYS TURN THE POWER OFF BEFORE WORKING ON THE ELECTRONICS That "spark between the two wires" came from a short between the MOSFET controlling the fan and the power supply. MOSFETs are reasonably rugged, but power supply s...

Re: I've managed to cause the extruder motor to not turn

If you have a single, that Mosfet (Extruder Heat 1) is left empty. (That is where you plug in the second extruder for a dual.) The E1 slot at the front is also reserved for the dual , as is the T1 slot for the thermistor. Looks like you need to shift your wiring over to the E0 slot. (Please keep in...

Re: I've managed to cause the extruder motor to not turn

Everyone's first few posts are moderated...it cuts down on SPAM. :) I had imagined. Though my first post, even moderated, wasn't quite stellar :lol: I've relooked at the wiring since discovering BOTH extruder and extruder fan do not work. I haven't changed the stock wiring to my knowlege but I foun...

I've managed to cause the extruder motor to not turn

Hi guys. When asked to extruder, the motor doesn't. It doesn't vibrate, buzz, or show any signs of an electrical current reaching the motor. Attempted to install a BLTouch. Had to mess with the electronics box, and found that those wires are extremely well connected. I've since made sure no connecti...
