Connecting a GTM 32 PRO Control Board on the Geeetech M201

by Bluecrab347

I've purchased the Geeetech Prusa i3 M201 Dual Extruder printer kit, and have assembled it by watching the 31 YouTube videos and working out for myself what they aren't showing well. However, I was surprised to discover that there are no connection instructions for my GTM 32 PRO control board, and that the videos are for another board entirely. Moreover, it seems that the orientation with which I have installed my board won't suit the lengths of the already-loomed Y, Y & Z-stop switch cables. Does anyone have any updated instructions or experience of installing this board and, ideally, a connection diagram? I've seen this image online, and that helps.

Pla vs damprid

by divreig

I have a couple of spools in an airtight container ,. I also keep damprid it in the same container. In order to keep the pla a nice and dry. But unfortunately the roles that were in that container are having issues. All the rules but these prints have missing Leader Heights and overall bad flow. Wondering if there's such a thing as keeping the pla too dry or there's some sort of reaction between the PLA and damprid

Can anyone tell me what I have and help me out?

by hdstonemeister

Ok, so I got what I was told was an Anet A8 from a website, (but one of the printed pieces says Prusa on it). It was taken apart and shipped to me. Not sure if what I have is really an Anet A8. I have gotten it together this far, but I am in need of a bit of help to finish it up.

There are 2 pictures of the progress so far, then the rest are parts that I just simply cannot figure out where they go or where to place them on the part I have already assembled. I can figure out what stepper motor goes to what part of the motherboard. I just can't figure out where the motherboard is supposed to be installed. I cannot figure out where the display is supposed to be mounted either. As for the rest of the pieces, I can't make heads or tails what to do with them either.

Any help, possible pictures or maybe files to print out on one of my other printers so as to provide something for the extra parts to fit on would be great!

Again, thank you for any help that you can provide!

Help with the master thesis - Search for interview partners

by Gamzec

Hello dear community,

I am a student at the Technical University of Darmstadt and in need of your help for my master’s thesis. I am examining the topic of explorative and exploitative behavior in online communities and want to understand your actions on Thingiverse and how they are influenced by your personality traits.

Therefore, I am currently looking for interview partners who are willing to tell me about their experiences on Thingiverse in a 30 to 40-minute interview.

Between the volunteers (approximately 10 participants) a 50€ Amazon voucher will be given away as a small thank you. If you are interested, I can also provide the results of my thesis to you. The interview is possible in English and in German. Your data will of course be treated confidentially and will only be used in connection with this thesis.

If I caught your interest, please sign up with your e-mail address to the following doodle list at your preferred time. Afterward, I will send you an invitation to the Zoom call. The doodle is in Central European Time, but everyone is welcome to participate. It is first come, first serve.

Many thanks in advance!
