Re: Breathing new life into an original i3 (Monoprice Maker Select IIIP)

The Cii cooler part is confusing. Are you running the part cooling fan while doing the PID tuning? Or do you just mean it won't run with the hotend fan on? Naturally if that's the case you'll want to see if it'll run without the fans (remove filament first) to determine that's the problem. I had an ...

Re: Marlin with: MKS GEN 1.4 + TMC2130

Yeah, the LCD and board gets powered by the USB cable when it's connected even if the power supply is turned off.

I'm using the same board and LCD, so just to confirm, here's my marlin settings:

Re: Quesion: MKS GEN 1.4 Wiring

That's mostly correct. The "Drivers temperature sensor" is where the heatbed temperature sensor should be plugged in. As far as I know most printers don't bother with a temperature sensor on the drivers. It shows the case fan and hotend fan as being wired together on a single pair of pins, but all t...

Re: fuel and oil resistance.

Yeah it seems nylon is the way to go. HDPE, the material that is used in gas cans, does exist as filament but apparently warps really bad and is too hard to print to be viable.

Re: Printer is printing inverted - Problems configuring Marlin

Assuming the problem is that you wanted to print that cube in the center of the bed, there's some issue with where the printer and/or slicer think 0,0 is located. After you home all axes, move the printer to 0,0 and see if it's in the corner of the bed or the center (or somewhere else entirely). The...

Re: Aluminum parts?

The parts are designed for plastic, including needing to be able to flex in certain spots, namely where the linear bearings are installed. Screw holes would also be a mess as you're often tapping them with a screw, which is easy enough to do with printed parts. Everything would need a redesign with ...

Re: Printer is printing inverted - Problems configuring Marlin

Did you physically change the endstop plug on the board? That first setting is to tell the firmware which plug to look to for the endstop signal, sounds like maybe it's still plugged in where it was so it's lighting up because it has power, but not reacting because the firmware is looking for a sign...
