Re: Can't connect to wifi M3ID - red light on rpi

It may be that there is an issue with the Sd card in the PI.
I suggest, first, you try a factor default reset.
Hold the reset button (just to the left of the front USB port)
for at least 60 seconds. This should put the PI back in AP mode.

Re: X-axis rattle

Doron, Assuming that you cannot find any thing loose, its most likely a bearing rattling. With use they can occasionally get loose. If it is not effecting your prints, I would just ignore it. The other option is to replace the carriage. Again, if your prints aren't failing, I would just continue to ...

Re: Need Flexible Filament advice

Printing flexibles requires a little bit of a different setup.
You are going to want to switch to a .50 nozzle.
Suspend the filament above the printer and "Gravity feed"
Slow down to about 600 mm/min.

Re: Help! Printer will not fully power on!

Rhagnarok- I did a search with your email address and no tickets were open. Did you use a different email than the one for the forum? We certainly do not ever want our customers to have to wait that long for a response. Having said that, sometimes our responses get sent to spam and occasionally they...

Re: Restarting M2; Electronic Board Flash?

When you buy a RAMBo board from us here at MakerGear, it will have the M2 Rev.E firmware already installed.
If you do not have a Rev.E, or are unsure which firmware is correct for your configuration, you can use our
Firmware selector. Give it a try at firmware.makergear.com.

Re: M2 nightmare with soft filiment

For softer filaments (TPU,TPE) I suggest the following setup.

Suspend your filament above the printer and "gravity feed".
Use a .50 nozzle.
Print at about 600 mm/min.

Generally speaking, you should get great results as long as everything is in good working order.

To test your harness try the following: Heat your hotend to print temperature. While watching your temperature plot, move the extruder assembly back and forth by hand. You are looking for large temperature fluctuations. If that happens, then the harness is the most likely culprit for your MINTEMP er...
