I returned the first one and got a replacement unit, same thing. I switched between 4 different raspberry Pi units. Same thing. Octoprint sees the USB port, but it can't negotiate a connection speed -- cycles through all of them and then fails.
Does anyone have a solution to this?
Well hello all :-) I have a z603s and want to bring it upto 2018 spec :-) because the design is a couple of years old it's missing things like removable bed / filament sensor etc,, enclosure so I thought I would have a go at improving it.
So far I've fitted a removable bed. This is a printinz bed and I've designed up some abs bed holders. Seems to work okay, might need to tweak the front clip a little... Second, I'm halfway through enclosing the printer off for ABS. Some photos below.
And last of all will be autobed leveling :-) got my BL Touch probe on order..
Hi all, I've been working on a few things that might be of interest:
Something really really important: I need to warn you Z-603S owners - the strain relief on the connection to the printing head is insufficient, and the wires will break there over time from the repeated flexing at the connection point on the head. On my head when these wires broke, they took out the stepper driver for the extruder as well, which required me to buy a whole brand new motherboard!
On my printer I added some strain relief to prevent this happening again. I extended all the wires manually, and then added some flexible rods within the cable sleeving to create more flex along the cable length, rather than all the flex occurring at the cable join point. The result is that this transfers the flexing from occuring at the connection point only, to being distributed along the length of cable more evenly.
Cables are designed to flex - just not at the same exact point continuously for hours on end during printing! :)
