G2 board

by sscharnell

I kind of feel like someone on an island throwing a bottle in the water with a note hoping someone finds it but here goes.
I wanted to upgrade my hot end to a ubis 13S so I also purchased the G2 board. I admit I did not pay attention to the statement "for the brave tinkerer".
So long story short here is my problem I can't get it to work. I have tried Cura, Octoprint and Repetier. I can manually move the nozzle and get it to heat up and extrude. What I can't do is get it to home or print. When I try to home it does not stop just grinds the belt. I am confident there are people out there that have done this successfully. Any help, guidance or direction would be great. If I can't get this to run my only alternative is to tell my wife that I failed and need to buy a different board. That would not be an enjoyable conversation. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

Warping despite heated bed

by thenumenorean

Hi, im having some trouble with my plus. All my prints are warping badly at the corners. This is despite using the heated bed, and occurs regardless of using the stock kapton tape or blue painters tape. Printing with hatchbox pla at 210, bed 80, pre-print cleaning with ipa. I am trying to avoid using a raft.
Unfortunately the solution to warping appears to be "get a heated bed" so i am at a loss. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

issue with underextrusion

by Arikoth

Hoping one of you might know whats going on with my printrbot plus, been fighting this issue and I'm just about out of ideas. It's less than two months old and I'm having underextrusion issues. It has the Alu V2 new extuder on it, tried about 4 different rolls of filament (Hatchbox), replaced the tip, re-flashed the firmware, disassmebled and cleaned both the extruder and hot end (no change) and tried using Cura and Repetier and getting the exact same issue. My boss has one of these printers and I love how his does no idea why mine is being so difficult!

Using Octoprint and a Raspberry PI

by sscharnell

Has anyone modded their printer with a Raspberry PI 3 and octoprint? I am building an enclosure for my printer and figured this would be the best time to install a PI with a touch screen. I am not sure what size screen to get. any one have any suggestions?
