Re: molex part number for rambo bed plug?

for whatever it's worth the plug would be a Molex 39533-7002 euro style with 5.08mm (.200) pin spacing.

molex part number for rambo bed plug?

Somehow, I've managed to fry the bed heater plug on my M2. Does anyone have the molex part number for this plug?

Re: M3/M2 Enclosure

HI Airscapes. I don't have those inches. I built an enclosure for my Sherline 2000 which has worked out wonderfully well. The bench that holds the M2, also has my Granite Surface plate, and the TinyBoy which amazingly I still use for small PLA things. I continue to assume that if I'm just printing P...

Re: M3/M2 Enclosure

Hi Bio.... My shop is very tight which discouraged construction of an enclosure for my M2, so I thought hard about why I needed one. Things I build can sit in hot cars in the afternoon so PLA isn't a good plastic for my work. I looked very hard at ABS which would require and enclosure. I thought abo...

Re: Prusaslicer 2.x

HI Ed, I'd be interested in seeing how you print PETG. I too have switched to it exclusively on the M2. I replaced the glass/kapton print surface with a magnetic sheet system (Wham-Bam-something about concrete rabbits). I had to dial down the bed and extrude temperatures to stop the PETG from bondin...

Re: Initial Z-height in Quick Start

Thanks much.

I cheated, cleaned up the old board which already had the calibration and am using it. I also installed the T-Link switch to the power supply. Octopi is not power through that switch so I can use the CAM to see what'as going on from home as well as monitor octopi via VPN.

Re: Power to heated bed M2

My M2E board quit heating, but thermistor still worked. I found that the HB 24v positive pin in the connector on my plug was badly corroded. Obviously there was power at the plug which could be measured by touching DMM probes to the screw heads atop the connector, but there was no connection at the ...

Initial Z-height in Quick Start

I just replaced the electronics board on my M2E, reloaded the Marlin firmware, found everything running in the correct direction, homing correctly etc, BUT. The Z level reached during the Quick Start exercise is more than an inch beneath the nozzle tip. In the past, this initial level has been more ...
