use spare smart phone as IP Webcam

I was going to buy a IP webcam to keep an eye the printer, the one I had was not sharp enough. In my search I came across a post mentioning 'IP webcam' app. I tried many apps a year ago and nothing was very good, but this one WOW, I really like it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.p...

Re: Gcode for prime line not working after upgrading to 1.19

the prime lines works, but it shooting blanks right after and takes a moment before filament starts coming out . watching it, I see the extruder is rewinding before printing the process.

[Solved] Re: FSRs too sensitive

I spoke with Brad, had a nice chat, we discussed some troubleshooting and I'm pretty sure the problem is found!
I had the middle FSR wire tied up with the stepper motors wires, the noise from the motors are interfering with the FSR.

Re: Macro Extruder speed & slip

Ok! I redid the Aero Titan, it was binding, even though it looked like the pinion gear was flush with the big gear, it must of been still rubbing.
I lowered it a hair and big difference being able to turn that big gear from the outside.

[SOLVED] Macro Extruder speed & slip

So I just finished building my printer that has an Aero Titan and had trouble extruding, I loosen up the bolts on the heatsink and it's working but I might have to loosen it more or maybe my stepper motor is weak. I don't know, I am still trying to figure out what it needs. Anyone using the macros? ...
