Hello. greetings from Uganda. I bought A gmax 2 pro printer it arrived a few weeks ago. and I am following the manual to assemble it. however there two power box which are not well explained in the manual. there is one which connects to hot bed. does it mean is should also be plugged on wall socket? someone need to explain to me what to do. It seems there two power inputs. is that true?
Webb, I was curious as to how your enclosure is working?
I plan on trying to make something similar to try to trap heat in and keep dust out of the printer area. How did you manage all the cables and bits? And do you have any temperature monitoring/control for the enclosure? I would think the bed couldn't get things too hot but could be wrong. I was curious if it got too warm would the belts crap out while printing
Ms. Lee I thank you for responding to my inquiry, originally concerning a "fan shroud" for my 1.5+, you kindly included a .STL file. However, considering that my "fan shrowd" is destroyed I don't believe I would have too much luck trying to print anything w/o a fan shrowd ?
my hope was that I might be able to source a physical copy of the 1.5+ Fan Shroud ? Best Regards
Hey I have a question re: the forums. Any time I post a comment or thread with more than a few sentences, I get an alert saying that the post is awaiting approval from mods. It eventually just disappears because, let's face it, no mods are ever here anymore.
As someone who just successfully posted a lengthy comment about how disappointing the tech support here is, I just want to know if you run into the same issues?
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
Fairly new to 3D printing, and am currently using Cura. I am trying to align two models for a dual extrusion. YouTube videos all show it easily being done using cura and the Ultimaker. After following the steps in the videos, and assigning each model to a printer head and hit merge, it aligns the two models side by side instead of on top of each other. Has anyone figured this out?
