Hi all,

Someone was kind enough to give me a rigidbot big to play around with as my first 3d printer. After spending several days assembling the thing, I finally turned it on for the first time, only to have the extruder control cable MELT (see attached).

Has anyone had this happen to them? I don't understand what I could have possibly done wrong. The cables are all unique and can only be plugged in one way, so I can only assume then that one or more parts are fault.

I spent part of my vacation time putting this thing together as a fun project, so I am beyond frustrated right now because I feel I just wasted a whole bunch of time for nothing.

I think I see now why they went out of business...

I keep getting these gaps in the tops of my prints, the sides are okay but the tops and joints are terrible. I tried slowing down the prints and adjusting the E steps. Any suggestions?

Where can i order replacement endstops. 

Hi, I am reworking my wiring to finally use the bye bye board. Does anyone have a decent set of photos that maps the dual bye bye to sainsmart 2 in 1?

Especially interested in thermistor and heater. I used to have the double wire on a thermistor, do I still need that on the bye bye?


I have a rb2 , I'm using simplify3d program , it connects to the rb2 but I can't get the control panel to work with it . Tried changing to different version of Marlin , arduino still nothing . The connection from the computer to rb2 is good . All the test come back good , just can't get the control panel on simplify3d to interact with rb2. Does any know what I'm doing wrong . Is there any suggestions . Help please.

The video shows how to level the bed using Marlin3Dprinter

Has anyone used or seen one of these before, are they any good?
Was thinking one for 2 of my printers
Sadly they are out of stock but I got an email from them saying they are getting more in a few weeks

I have a problem with one of my commercial printers. It literally melted the pump that sprays cleaning solution on the printheads. I can't figure out why it overheated but on the board there looks like a resistor that is broke off. See pics of the bad one and one of my good boards. Think this could be the problem? Where could I find a replacement? Are they easy enough to solder on? Any electronic specialists have any insights?

This morning when I turned on the rigid, it no longer worked. I have the version with a ramp 1.4 v0.3.
What he detected is that he switched on the switch, the led from the power supply and the source, and the power supply cuts off the 24v supply. The plate does not show any signs of a short circuit and does not smell burned. Can someone help me and give me a clue? Thank you
