Got my 20 tooth pulley upgrades and adjustable idler upgrades in. Recompiled firmware for new steps and am doing first print with them.

+Peter Stoneham For your v2 upgrade, I note that you say:
"If you haven't already you will need to upgrade to 16 or 20 tooth pulleys for both X and Y axis to use the Dual Mount."

Are there instructions on this somewhere and why?

Also, is there a good photoset or more drawings of installation of the v2 mount? Before I take apart my working (using the term loosely as the stock hot end blows) printer, I want to fully understand my work to be done and order of operations to do it.

I updated my firmware to RBCE 1.02 (from https://github.com/guysoft/Marlin/releases/tag/RBCEv1.0.2 ) last night and then swapped the extruder settings in config.h to work around a burned out stepper driver.

One thing that I've noticed with RBCE 1.02 is that while it detects when I plug in a USB flash drive, when I try to go to it to print, it says one isn't present. I've seen others have mentioned this problem with RBCE and default Marlin in the past. Does anyone have an easy fix?

For people replacing the default board with a SainSmart 2-in-1 3D Printer Mainboard, how are you mounting it to the frame of the printer? +Peter Stoneham, I'm thinking of doing that, along with building your v2 extruder kit now that I have it.

Hmm. Guess it is time to rebuild. Went to print today (and my printer has been working fine for over a year) and the extruder motor would kind of bob back and forth rather than spinning. Can't jog it reliably in either direction.

Swapped out it's connection for the one for my x axis to trouble shoot. If x axis motor has extruder connection, it moves back and forth fine. If extruder motor is plugged into x axis, it still does the bobbing back and forth. So, either a bad 4 wire connection to the motor or, more likely I think, the motor got damaged.

Anyone got any good links for plug and play nema 17 motors of the same specs from ebay or amazon or ?? I need to get another one anyway as I have +Peter Stoneham 's v2 dual mk8 extruder build to do so I was going to have to rip off all of this crap for the extruder anyway.

Also, what is the best easy replacement control board people are using these days? I might rip that out if I'm stripping this whole thing down anyway.

I assume we all saw the news that Invent-a-part has just sold all things Rigidbot to Rigidbot, LLC, owned by a single investor, and IAP is out of the Rigidbot business now.

Can anyone recommend a translucent PLA that doesn't suck or have severe issues?

For people using Hatchbox PLA, what temperatures are you using with it?

I'm curious if I'm the only one that has a bump in the middle of his build plate from the set screw (?) used to screw it down. It's like "Gee, thanks for putting this .1 mm bump in the middle of my build platform."

Do people have preferred brands of PLA from the stock available through Amazon?
