Hey Josh I read your post concerning the changing of nozzles on the E3D hot end. I recently changed out my original 1.5+ extruder to a E3D. Since then I have developed an issue causing a hot-end nose dive EVERY-TIME that I attempt to 3D print anything. I did replace the mounting bracket for the BL-Touch sensor yet, but with it grinding into the bed surface, I don't know where to begin. Thank you.
Good day Josh, I was hoping you could help me. I recently upgraded my gMax 1.5+ from a single J-Head to a dual E3D, and I had to roll back my version of Marlin to 1.1.1 to facilitate the upgrade. I'm told I could be running Marlin 2, and I'm just wondering if there is a guide on installation and configuration of a newer version of Marlin that encompasses the dual extruder upgrade? I need Babystep Z and Purge options.
Hello Joshua, I was wondering where I could get a copy of Marlin 1.1.9 for my gMax2. I'm changing to the TMC-2208 stepper drivers. I figure it will be a lot easier to configure using The gMax 2 stock firmware rather than a stock marlin.
The heat sinks that came on my printer were attached with foam tape! The drivers actually worked better with the heat sinks removed. The foam tape actually insulates the driver keeping it warmer. I ordered new heat sinks and after installing everything is great. If you press on the heat sink and can see it get closer to the board you probably have foam tape.
Hi Joshua, I read you're the guy to talk to about printer issues. I am having troubles in that a couple of my designs won't print. The printer is moving along the design as it should, but the drive gear that pushes the filament through the hotend is not turning. When I try to print an older design it works great, just the 2 designs I did today won't allow for the gear to turn. I assume it is something with the file.
I am looking to replace my E3D nozzle with a larger one for quicker printing times, but I see conflicting information on the website. What is the largest I can go with my 1.5xt+ printer? Thank you
