Re: best add on control panel

You can install Octoprint on a PC/Mac. but i dont think that is what you are going for here. If your're on a mac, you should be able to simply bring up octopi.local in a browser and get to the interface. But first you'll need to do the password change and the sudo raspi-config and extend the space o...

Re: Strange Wave Patterns

I'm just spit-balling here as I'm new to all of this, but maybe change print speed?
Resonance issue possibly?
Is the printer on a steady surface?

Re: Octoprint No serial port

Did you use the OctoPi image on this page? http://octoprint.org/download/ I did. Also did you have the M2 powered up and connected while you powered up the Pi? I did not on the first try. I had it connected but not powered up. Thinking that might have been the problem, i reflashed the sd card and m...

Re: Good starting mm/s for ABS ?

I used your .26 profile with the same results. I did have a clog last week. I cleared it and reset tension at the same time. I'm not looking at it now, but i think your brim is set to 1 layer 0 offset and 6 outlines. 6 may be a bit much for that piece. i may try reducing it by 2 or 3 and see what ha...

Re: Good starting mm/s for ABS ?

Sorry Insta, I am. I didn't realize that was pertinent. I just figured speed was speed. I guess really what im after is a good baselilne. Some prints come out fine. Others, get wrecked during the print. Mostly when dealing with threads or small parts. For instance thing:21357 is a pcb vise. The 2 ar...
