Perplexed by failed print

by Csandra

I tried to print a scaled down Mars globe yesterday (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:408034) and the print stopped at 24 hours with a flat top. I checked my machine this morning and found that I could not raise the Z axis higher than about 3 inches. I have printed 6.5 inch tall models in the past. Has anyone else experienced this? do you have any suggestions about what could be causing this? The machine is printing fine otherwise.

Repetier settings for Reprapguru V2

by Vaeloron

I just had to reload windows on my 3D printing laptop and lost all of my settings for my I3 V2. I am looking at the configuration manual and under printer shape it says to set Home X, Home Y, and Home Z to min however these fields are currently set to zero and I can only put a number in them. I remember having this issue when I first set it up but I forgot what I put in these fields. I am also missing some of the Slic3r settings but I should be able to work those out. If anyone can share their Repetier printer settings it would be greatly appreciated.

Marlin v1.1.5 Upgrade?

by nitdoggx

Has anyone upgraded their RepRapGuru to the latest Marlin v1.1.5 firmware? I was going to give it a shot and start modifying the Configuration.h using values from the old version that came with the printer vs the Folger2020 example values the new v1.1.5 includes. If someone already did this work and was successful, I'd love to clone your repo and try it out. Otherwise, I'll give it a go sometime soon and share my results.

200mm x 300mm bed

by Chaseabun86

Hi, I've seen a few elongated beds on Amazon, eBay, ect. Can I drop this into my i3 v2? Or will I need longer smooth rods and threaded support rods to gain more print surface?

Has anyone other than me had trouble reaching RRG? I placed an order for a power supply a few weeks ago and they aren't answering email or the helpline.

Print cooling Fan

by Nukeballz20

I just bought a print cooling fan but I can't figure out how to configure it. It just keeps on turning on. Should i connect it on D9 slot, and switch spots with the extruder cooler?

2nd issue. My heat bed isn't heating up.

Stepper driver shows half current when the Usb is not plugged in

by Nukeballz20

My LCD only turns on when the USB is plugged in. When i plug out the usb the LCS dies. I changed the RAMps board but the same thing. Also i just realized the multimeter reads half current when the usb is not plugged in. I am getting a new Ramps board. Hopefully that solves the issue.
Edited: I changed the Ramps. I am getting a new Arduino.
