Re: Kinda-sorta enclosed build area for ABS

Just get a cheap IKEA cabinet and IKEA LED light setup and be done with it. Easy and looks nice.

Re: E3Dv6, jimc's extruder and excessive cooling

Attempted a PID autotune with the fan on, and here are the results.... hhehehe, the poor heater can even get to 215 degrees in the first place! So it means either a 40W upgrade or play with the fan duct.

Re: E3Dv6, jimc's extruder and excessive cooling

I am starting to think this is nothing to do with PID's and purely that the 25W heater (sorry I originally wrote 24W in my original description) just doesn't have enough power to cope with the cooling from the fan duct. I see some other complaints over on the E3D forum. Guess it's time for a 40W upg...

E3Dv6, jimc's extruder and excessive cooling

Hey all, Not sure if anyone else is having this issue, but I found that when printing PLA with my E3Dv6 and jimc's extruder setup, I get excessive cooling on the hotend. So much so that the heater on the E3Dv6 can't heat up the block any further. This is during the first few layers. Once the head ha...

Re: Viki 2.0 gives you small pox :(

Print came out well. But I will keep testing as this wasn't a particularly difficult print. Just a standalone case for the Viki 2.0

Re: Viki 2.0 gives you small pox :(

Thanks jsc,

I have put the code in (it was identical) and adjusted the LCD_UPDATE_INTERVAL from 100 to 300. Running a test print now and will report back on how it goes.

Re: Viki 2.0 gives you small pox :(

I compiled the Viki2.0 firmware as per Josh's instructions, using Arduino 1.6.5. But it looks like the dreaded XY shifting issue is back :(

Re: Viki 2.0 gives you small pox :(

I wasn't sure what kind of units LCD_UPDATE_INTERVAL was in ? I mean a 100 what? 100Hz, 100ms, 100 seconds, what? But looking at the code it looks like its 100 milliseconds by default. So the LCD is refreshed at 10Hz. So I will bump up that figure to 500 or 1000 and see what happens. By the way, is ...

Re: Viki 2.0 gives you small pox :(

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY! Thank you Josh !!!!! I have a working Viki 2. :D :D :D I will play with the firmware and see how it goes, and will report back with any findings. My M2 is not a prod machine, so any problems is no big deal. By the way, you dont need LiquidTWI2 to compile for the Viki2.0, only u8...
