Rod replacements?

by sharky25k


I got an anycubic Kossel Linear Plus last year and no matter how much I tried I never managed to level it correctly and be level on the entire surface of the bed.

Currently I have the printer on an SKR 1.4 turbo board with TMC2209 and it kinda works OK, but I have some issue, that the size of the prints are a little bit off in the left side (they seem slightly smaller not too much but maybe 0.5 mm). I noticed that the effector carriage is moving a little bit so I would like to change the rods for the printer. Unfortunately I don't find any good genuine source for the rods, and I am also not really savy to make them by myself. I saw some designs for magnetic rods here on thingiverse, but the issue is that I don't have another printer to print the components, and I don't want to use this printer as it seems that it has some dimension issues. And for this parts the sizes are critical...

I would think to order something like this https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32808866275.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.12746007adzYyS&algo_pvid=4ae758db-57cc-438a-aae4-5696fcbe0ed5&algo_expid=4ae758db-57cc-438a-aae4-5696fcbe0ed5-3&btsid=0ab6d59515939707120333096e74b9&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_

I am pretty sure that the magnetic carriages will fit my printer, but I don't know if the effector module would do the trick... Mainly because I don't see how you would put on that the fan for part cooling. As well as the rods are 300 mm.

Does anybody know a place from where you can get some rods the size of this printer? Most sales which I see are for 200 250 or 300 mm carbon rods and as far as I know, the rods on the linear plus are 267 mm...

I don't really need magnetic rods, but I want something which will definitely not wiggle.

Any suggestions are very welcome. Also if you would have a list of parts that would be great.

Thank you in advance,

Extruder unfeeding all of the filament mid print.

by ignasp

While printing the print just stops and unfeeds all of the filament, then tries to feed it back in before unpausing. tried reflashing the firmware but that did nothing, don't know if it's a slicer issue or a firmware issue.

Anycubic I3 Mega DOMED center of the build plate

by CmdrDelmonte

Hi All :-)

I have the I3 Mega with the ultra base.

I can level it all the way around the edges and 4 corners and its spot on
However, the centre is 'High', the filament is just smeared at the middle point, to get around this, for now, I have set the edges to 1.5mm (Using a gauge)
and that puts the centre around 0.5mm and set Simplify 3D to extruded extra filament. It works but it's not right.

I have had the bed apart and checked the guide rods rotate freely in their mounts, At first, they were solid but sorted thats now,

Wondered if anyone has had the same, or even a solution maybe

Thank you :-)

Changing nozzle heater from heater0 to heater1

by jabonet

My port heater0 seems to be malfunctioning. It stays ON all the time, flashed the memory upgraded the firmware nothing works, it simple shoots up to 275C and then gives me a maxtemp error.
Is there a way to switch the cables to Port D45 (heater1) where in Merlin 2 do I have to change this?

Pronterface Connection Issues

by davisn4

So seemingly out of no where I can not connect to pronterface using Marlin 1.1.9. Clicking the connect button I am met with a never ending "Connecting..." attempt. When pronterface says "Connecting..." if I unplug either side of the cable it throws an error(expected). I am also still able to upload new Arduino files and the Kossel acts normal by restarting after the upload is complete. I also have tried resetting pronterface and connecting several times with no success. The last piece of troubleshooting I tried was turning it off, walking away for a few hours, and coming back. That didn't work lol! I have another Trigorilla board I could swap in but that seems slightly extreme.

Anyone else have similar issues?
