Can't seem to get either the hotend or the bed thermistors to respond. Hot end reads positive 26 degrees. It heats up but the display stays at 26 - seems it would keep heating until it burned down my flat... heat bed shows -26, doesn't heat up at all. Using the firmware uploaded by shawdreamer. Changed the thermistor tables to 11 as I'm using 3950 1% thermistors. Checked the resistance of the thermistors and its normal. If I disconnect the thermistors, I then get a min temp error on the lcd. Can anyone help?
I've been reading up a bit about bridging techniques and building supports. I've also seen that building something greater than 45 degrees in angle without supports is tricky without proper cooling. My question is I want to use something that I don't have to solder or add a new motherboard for. I'm using a Colido diy 3d printer. I've seen that I can use a 12v blower fan with a printable mount near the extruder that looks promising. Another option is to use a 40mm fan with a different mount but then I have to adjust the mobo or do some soldering with adding resistors. Has anyone done this and are there suggestions for the 50x15 blower since that seems to be a better option? My wife does cosplay so I have been building her materials to mold with silicone or just to use outright. This will help me greatly increase my print quality along with any new items I couldn't do before bridging and using supports with bridging. Thank you for any answers!
Ok guys, I'm completely new to this. I downloaded the Repetier software from the website for the DIY printer, LED is flashing and Repetier says it is connected, but I cannot get the printer to do anything, I connect, the printer doesn't move. Trying to calibrate and set Home, etc. It says Unknown Firmware at the bottom. I cannot find any screens or help for a MacBook, so I'm lost. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I notice that the x-axis belt is robing on something I don't know what , but I also notice a cracked, and it made my printer not useable, I just keep getting failed print, and I also don't have another 3d printer so I cant print a fix, do you guys have any ideas on a fast fix to at least be able to print the new x-axis
there's a picture.
I'm having troubles with my CoLiDo printer and after looking on this forum I decide to go for the ramps 1.4 upgrade; but i don't have any idea where to start, any ramps kit that you can recommend to buy? Can I follow the installation videos intended for other printers (aka prusa)? I know that I'm asking a lot but as you can read this is going to be my first try to upgrade my printer and even a small comment will be really helpful.
