Re: RepRap Discount Hexagon Hot End

Nubby~
Thank you! You have ended months of frustration for me. This was exactly the ticket. Cheers!

As for a warping build plate, I just flip mine over occasionally. The sags start going the other way.

Re: [TRICK] Is Your Printer into Swinging? Its Time for Auto

Was the endless cycle in PID Autotune ever resolved? I'm using the most recent firmware, altered only to recognize the E3D thermistor and Autotune just keeps going and going.

Re: How does one re-flash?

Answer: no, the RAMPS board works with the regular connection and no switching of jumpers is needed.

Re: How does one re-flash?

Okay, the instructions on the Support page show how to flash a RUMBA board, but what if I have a RAMPS? Specifically, the power source for the RUMBA board has to be switched from the Type A to the USB from the computer by changing a jumper on the board. Is this true of the RAMPS board? Are there any...

Re: RepRap Discount Hexagon Hot End

I'm giving up on the Hexagon hot ends. I've tried 5 of them with the same results and I have wall prints on my head.

I've just ordered the new E3D v.6 all metal hot end. I'll let you know what happens.

Cheers!

How does one re-flash?

Actually, there are several settings questions here, pertaining to the 2013 Type 1 and Pronterface. First, what are the actual steps involved in re-flashing the RAMPS? Next, how do you adjust a setting like voltage to the extruder stepper motor? I did the PID Tuning as described here http://reprap.o...

Re: RepRap Discount Hexagon Hot End

I'm having exactly these issues with the same settings. I've been poking around in the Troubleshooting forum and am thrilled to see I'm not alone.

Re: Discussing Alternative Hot Ends

This is an excellent conversation, as it seems that MakerGear has quit converting their hot ends to 12 Volts, leaving us out in the cold!

I have the 2013 S1. Is the set up the same for 2013 and 2014? Will all these alternatives work for both?

Re: MakerGear Replacement HotEnd - A+

This is all great, but I just tried to order a new hot end from MakerGear and they told me they don't convert to 12V anymore.
This would be very sad, as I was getting some pretty great results with them, too.
Shall we rise up in protest?
