I am plugging the pi in to the type B USB port and i keep getting the following error:

Error: Failed to autodetect serial port, please set it manually.

The pi is fine, it worked onthe previous melzi board, but now it wont connect to the MKS board. Is there some setting I am missing here? Any help appreciated.

Lulzbot AO 101 and Simplify3d

by Leftyhokum

Just wanted to throw a thread here that made it apparent using the Simplifi3d - LulzbotTaz 3 settings for older model Lulzbot printers works well. The only things I had to do was set the platform dimension to the smaller size of the AO 101 and add a script to make sure the fan is running. I had been messing with these settings for awhile and finally broke down and bought Simplify3d. Man am glad I did because even though this is an old ass machine it works like a dream.

Printer acting weird

by superryan14

For the past month or so my printer has been running fine. But a problem I had about 2 or 3 months ago started happening again. My Z axis on my ramps 1.4 AM8 started making a shaking/grinding noise and one side of the axis skips around a bit and lags behind the other stepper motor I have a video of it on youtube here


It will randomly get back to normal movement but then the Z axis is uneven.

I'm not sure if it means my stepper motor is dying or maybe the stepper driver but i'm not too sure what it means. any help would be great.
