Re: tapping/clinking noise on z-hop

Still getting the tapping... Oddly enough, I'm not sure anymore if it's coming from the hotend/extruder. It's almost as-if it's coming from near the top of the printer - somewhere around the top of the X or Z tower. Is such a thing even possible? Could one of the pulleys be making a tapping sound? T...

Re: tapping/clinking noise on z-hop

I sliced a "stringing" test (two pillars a couple cm apart) and turned off z-hop in S3D when slicing it, but left 0.8mm retractions. I still had the tapping noise. :( (However, I had ZERO stringing, which was nice to see.) Pulled off the part cooling fan and there was a very tiny bit of play in the ...

New purchase - first impressions

Now that I've had my D300VS+ working (more or less) for a few days, I wanted to leave a post on my overall impressions, and perhaps some suggestions for further improvement. When reading this, please consider that my previous experience with Delta style printers is nil. In fact, my entire experience...

Re: tapping/clinking noise on z-hop

My retracts are at 50mm/sec with ~1mm z-hop. The last time I had the part cooling fan off, the big black plastic gear didn't seem to have any excess play in it (which is what I thought caused backlash.) I just purchased a table for the printer, so once I've assembled that and moved the printer, I'll...

tapping/clinking noise on z-hop

I'm not familiar with Delta's, using "Z-hop" while printing, or even using e3d hot ends, so this might be a Stupid Question: With Z-Hop turned on, I'm hearing a tapping or clinking noise at each Z-hop. It sounds like what I'd expect if the nozzle was hitting a glass bed gently. However, I have a PEI...

Re: We're back

Thank you very much for getting everything back up. I noticed that some post attachments are gone. For example, the attachment on this post: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=377 Can those also be recovered?

Thank you

Re: new D300VS+ ordered - what to print to prepare?

That reminds me - please don't bother sending a replacement for that LED strip that was soldered backwards. I'm _not_ going to put LED's at the top of the frame. I've decided to instead just cut down one of the good strips to a few inches and mount it on the bottom, facing in towards the build plate...

Re: new D300VS+ ordered - what to print to prepare?

I have to tell you, Brad, that I'm really happy with the printer so far. I'm VERY thankful that you sent it before getting the borofloat plate in, as it's allowed me to assemble, tinker, and play. This thing is FAST (compared to my flashforge creator pro.) My typical "test print" is a flexi-rex mode...

Re: new D300VS+ ordered - what to print to prepare?

It's a conspiracy! :lol: The "plus" section of the forum was gone until the day AFTER I finished my D300VS+ build. Well, at least now I can go back and see if I did things correctly. ;)

new D300VS+ ordered - what to print to prepare?

I have a D300VS+ kit with 7" PanelDue on order. While waiting, I thought I could prepare a bit by printing any parts that I might need on another printer. For example, I've seen some suggest a bracket to mount the PSU on the printer frame. Are there any other suggested items that don't come with the...
