Fast forward to Cura 3.6.0 now. The Rostock Max v3.2 and Artemis printers are included under “Other” printers, but other SeeMeCNC printers, like the RMax v3, have been left out. So sad :<
Once I realised I needed to thread those holes in the Base Assembly, I did the threading BEFORE assemby, placing them flat on the table and working in the 10-32 screws. Did that for all 3 Base Assemblies. It’s a breeze mounting the panels later. Actually, instead of 10-32 machine screws, I think self-tapping screws for wood or plastic would have been more appropriate.
BEWARE! Don’t touch those 10-32 screws after you’ve turned them in or out for a while. Friction/stiction makes them REALLY HOT to the touch.
Is there a reason the End-stop wires are so long? Any harm shortening them?
I replaced the Philips screws with M3-.5 x 10mm Allen head Cap screws (stainless steel type) for securing the heater cartridge. Cap screws will be easier to turn with Allen wrenches (using the L-bend) in this confined space compared to Philips heads, and the head less likely to strip. I also applied a dash of anti-sieze on these screw threads. All this in the name of easier maintenance down the road, if needed.
For the heater rod and thermistor securing screws, would it be adviseable to apply some anti-seize on their threads? Also, how about 'Watlube' over the heater rod?
Errr, what secures the HE fan in place in the long run? Will it slip down and out of the bracket after prolonged usage?
I second that. Actually, many other pictures here could do with 'much closer ups', as the details ARE important :>
Yes, I think it should be ONE lead in each PTFE tube. If both leads went into one tube, the thermistor would essentially be shorted and won't work as a temperature sensor.
I assume the Thermistor is an NTC (Negative Temperature Coefficient) type? Is there a commercial part number (and equivalents) in case it needs replacement? (yes, my kit came with a spare). It's used here as a temperature sensor (yes?), so for step 28, would it be adviseable, or not adviseable, to place some thermal or heatsink paste into the hole before inserting the thermistor, just so it has a good thermal contact with the heater block?
