Why not update FW for M2 printers?

I love MakerGear and printers, but you guys dropped the ball on Firmware updates for M2. Problem 1. Firmware doesn't work with latest Arduino IDE and version 1.5.5 needed. The "fix" for this can be implemented in less than 15 minutes by replacing variable types. I've done it and was able to update F...

Re: Reprinting Filament Drive. What material should I use?

Thanks! :)
Just printed mine out of white PETG, drilled out hole with 2 mm drill bit and it seems to work great so far. Ninjaflex no longer jamming so I'm happy.
I'm ordering some ePC so will probably reprint it later. Thanks for the link to hinged version, I'll check it out!

Reprinting Filament Drive. What material should I use?

I've been struggling with my M2 Rev E printing Ninjaflex. It was just one printer, other one prints it just fine. I think i figured out the issue. 3D printed filament drive has elongated hole where filament goes, almost like two holes joined together. I don't know if my filament wore that out (I've ...

Would PEI with self adhesive stick to bead blasted plate?

I have MIC 6 plate with both sides bead blasted. Would I have any issues attaching PEI sheet to it? I don't see why would I but just wanted to see if anyone done it. I'm using 3M dual sided adhesive sheet...

Printer looses USB connection after PID Tuning

I'm curious if it's a bug of some sorts? Happens on all three M2 REV.E printers I have. When I run PID auto-tune procedure, it always looses USB connection (to Octoprint on RPi3s) at the end of the process. Super easy to replicate. Not a big deal, as I'm able to see values in the log.

Re: Marlin v1.1.6 working, except for bed height

I'm interested, but not sure I could help :)
I was able to flash factory FW using Arduino 1.8.1 instead of recommended ancient 1.5.x (which caused all kind of conflicts with libraries I'm using)...

Re: Weird noise from brand new M2 Rev E

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's not G-Code. Happens on any print I run on this printer, very easy to replicate honking :) I does sound like something resonates, I'll try tightening fan grills, but also sounds like maybe needs oiling. Might put a bit of lithium grease on the railings... Speaking of weird n...
