Device unplugged while connected to port

Hey guys, I've been getting this in the last week: "Device unplugged while connected to port" It's like the USB port goes away. Any ideas?

Re: Dual Extruders and Retraction

As I said, even when it's predictable, I end up with odd results by retracting the "idle" extruder first. For example, Simpify doesn't know that I've done that so it doesn't extrude an equivalent distance. Again this is just for the first layer.

Dual Extruders and Retraction

Hey guys, I've been working to get my dual extruder (Chimera) working and operational and I always seem to hit this one snag. The snag is that in the starting gcode both of my nozzles are primed and ready to go, but the software doesn't have a built in way to recognize this and start with a retract ...

Why GCode do you guys use for dual extruders on purging/wiping?

Re: Heated Bed isn't working

I thought maybe it was the red connectors and I got rid of them temporarily. I get 12v (when it's on) at the heater until I connect it up and then it's 0v...I'm pretty sure it's not wiring. I will check the automotive fuse though. Visually it looks fine, but maybe there's something wrong with it. -Lon

Heated Bed isn't working

So my friends heated bed stopped working the other day...I went through a bunch of tests, and I thought that the actual heater was bad. So we bought a new one, wired it all back up and it still doesn't work. Without the heater connected, I see 12v. The moment the bed is connected it drops to 0v. Any...

Re: Second Extruder Motor not working

So I think I've just proven that it's not my Rambo (and by extension the firmware). I connected the motor that was originally on E0 to the E1 wiring and it worked. Which would mean that the driver is doing the right thing. The only thing this leaves is the wiring itself (a brand new harness). I thin...
