Need help identifying this plug!

by larrynotlawrence

Hi everyone.
I'm needing some help with the name and/or part number on the male & female end of this 4 wire plug.
This is the one that comes from the power supply into the gt2560 board. I need to replace both ends
So if anyone has any tips on replacing the one on the board that would be great.
Thank you all.

Thermocouple and Heating Element Loose

by bjeromin

So a while back my thermocouple fell out mid-print and the entire insulation caught fire but i managed to put everything back together and get it working again. I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas of a kind of way to keep them in without falling out again and ruining something on my printer or burn down my entire house if I let it print overnight

My printer is the i3 Pro b with all stock parts

Layer shifts on the Y axis

by leobaillard


I have a Geeetech i3 Pro B and it works great. I've recently tried to print bigger parts (a Space X Falcon 9 for instance) and I'm experiencing layer shifts on the Y axis.

I can't figure out where the problem is coming from. Things I've tried/found:

  • the Y axis motor axle pulley that holds the belt is tight
  • the Y axis belt is firmly tightened as well
  • i've added extra clips on the glass bed in case the glass was moving

One other thing to not is that the Y motor runs hotter than the X or Z motors. Could that be an issued? If so, should I try reducing the current going to the motor using the potentiometer on the driver? Should I try adjusting acceleration and jerk value?

I've joined a picture of the results with layer shifting.

Thanks to anyone who can help or suggest ideas!
