Install a Raspberry Pi into a Mega i3 S?

by HeliTom

I am planning to add a Raspberry 3 Pi to my Mega i3s Printer.

Has anyone installed one inside the base, or do they need to be outside?
Thanks in advance,.

Anycubic axis jam inconsistent

by dansleeth


My Anycubic i3 Mega has started to intermitantly jam at the same point along the x axis, but inconsistently.

The carriage is smooth along the start of the x axis (when I manually push it, printer turned off) until about half way and then it hits an invisible wall and becomes hard to push. If you put a fair bit of pressure, it feels a little like it skips, but then it is okay along the rest of the axis.

On some prints it is fine, while on others I can come back and see that the x-axis has not moved for several minutes and there is a massive blob in a line where only the y-axis has been moving.

Could somebody make some suggestions of what it might be and what it definately isn't...

  • Belt doesn't look terrible.
  • Can't see the teeth on the motor and that looks like a pain to get to
  • Stepper motor's internal gears?
  • Can the drivers have a physical affect?
  • Bearings?

Thanks in advance

Green connectors burned

by Metrolan


Both connectors of hotend cable (green) are burned. I'm looking for a replacement cable or at least, a place to buy the connectors.

Searched Amazon, Aliexpress, Banggood and ebay. Only found in ebay.de, but vendor didn't ship to my country (Spain).

Anyone can help?
