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?
I did upgrade my GMax1.0 to Gcreate 1.5/1.5+ but the Y-Axis always made a noise when it hit Y-end stop. It looked like Y-axis still wanted to go further.
I did check the belt tension, it's fine.
Can you help to solve this issue please?
