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

Did you enable EEPROM_SETTINGS in the Configuration.h file? The default in Marlin is for that to be disabled which wouldn't allow for setting changes / updates via G-Code.

I've since moved to automatic bed-leveling with a BL-Touch, but this to me sounds like what your issue may be.

Re: BLTouch Auto Leveling Sensor

For what it's worth I created a mount for the RevE machines and you can find the file here:

Re: First layer sticking issues

I found buildtak to be too "grippy" and ended up ruining it more times than not because it simply wouldn't release print.

Re: PLA "over adheres" to kapton+hair spray?

My successes is with the various combinations for PLA: - Glass with Kapton tape applied. - Glass with hair spray (Aquanet) applied. - Glass with PEI. You shouldn't have to add hairspray if you're using Kapton or PEI for PLA if your temps are good. (I generally run my bed a little hot at 70C.) I do f...

Feature request / Suggestion

So I've had this PEI sheet for sometime thinking, "I should put this on one of the glass pieces for my M2"... Well after reading all of the love for the PEI on Aluminum I finally decided to do it and I'm in love with PEI as a build surface and that got me to thinking, "MakerGear should sell this as ...
