Finished with my Lego Man! He looks amazing. And the surface finish came out awesome. He is roughly 7 inches tall. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:170076

Made a friend that has an original Rigidbot 1 that he says isn’t working well. I’m going to see if I can help him get it working and potentially upgrade some components using the stuff on ReliaBuild3D.com. What are some common problems any of you may have experienced with the original design? What should I be looking out for as I try to get this guy up and running?

Some PID help anyone ;-)

I'm having this weird situation where one of the extruders (stock) just won't settle at 230 C, it reaches there without problem during a PID autotune or if I set the temp manually to say 250 or 240, but as soon as I set it again to 230 it would go to the 222 C neighborhood and stay there.. no idea what's going on.

I see that it tends to stabilize to 8 C degrees less than whatever I set it to :-(

Current PID settings are: P 11.20 I 0.54 D 58.38



Is it possible make this screw on thermistor work with the e3d heater block?

This is the "The Rook", a little bracket for those printing out of a filament dry-box or looking for a way to tidy-up the cables going into the extruder PCB.

Single / Dual extruder , with or without the 'rook' tower versions are also available on the same thingiverse page.

While I’m waiting for a blue spool of filament to arrive (to finish my Lego guy), I decided to print a pink bunny for Easter. My daughter will love this.

I work from home and my printer sits right next to me. This isn’t normally a problem but I designed a part for my Toyota Tacoma that a bunch of people want so my printer has been running a ton! We keep our house fairly cool so this made printing ABS a little tricky unless I ran a space heater in that room alone.

Anyways, I had cardboard taped to the frame to control drafts and try to maintain temps but that just looked terrible. Today I whipped up a partial enclosure that leaves a gap open for the Z to rise. I might completely enclose it some day but this is actually working great as is! Temps are holding very nicely!

I need to upgrade the firmware on my RB1 and am looking at the wiki below. I'm not sure which I should go with and have one modification I think I need to take into account. I am using the stock controller board and have the LCD. I did upgrade to +Peter Stoneham's MK8 single mount kit and had upgraded to a 20 tooth pulleys. I also have the proximity sensor and am wondering us auto bed leveling was ever completed?

Today I finally installed the filement protector box I built in December but never had the time to install. I will put some silica gel inside.
It was built with a hat box from Amazon and some 3dprinted parts.
