  1. Welp its that time again, its been a couple of weeks and I'm going to be "that guy" and ask how its going? I'm definitely still interested and I'm sure others are as well. As always, thanks to those who do this!
  2. I second this, I'd be more than happy to help any way I can.
  3. This is why I watch this thread haha. Just waiting for the next better thing while I keep calibrating etc... I'd contribute if I could, but unfortunately besides simple web languages I don't know much when it comes to programming.
  4. Thanks for the updates guys. I look forward to hearing more.
  5. Not to bring a thread back from the dead but my question applies to this. I have the 1.5.4 electronics. I am adding a headed bed to my Ultimaker this weekend and although I don't have an Ulticontroller yet its planned for the near future (birthday coming up . So the question is can I go ahead and install the patch cable while I have the electronics apart and working on them. Will it be ok to use the usb connection even after applying this patch cable? I'd hate to fry something just because I didn't take the time to ask. [edit] I forgot to ask. In the instructions provided in the wiki it states "Virtually any wire that can fit 'through-hole' can be used". Any clarification on this. I realize it says any, but I always feel better with some potential wire gauges to look at. Thanks, Tom
  6. I've uploaded the stls I used to allow the groovemount to fit. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:18983 I'm not to great at providing technical instructions so I understand if it needs clarification.
  7. I'll try and get my solution using the groovemount up on thingiverse tomorrow. If you are still getting the plug it should help. I'll post back in this topic when the file and instructions are uploaded.
  8. As far as I can tell, yes you would need two licenses to have the program on two different computers. However I should have updated this and let everyone know that when I contacted Netfabb they were quick to respond and reset everything. I would assume the same would be true for a reformat/re-installation.
  9. Marlin is definately the firmware to go with. Its far superior in my opinion, and I print 99% of my items with netfabb generated code.
  10. My issue was solved by accident. I had broken my peek while taking apart the hot end to clean everything. I ended up purchasing this http://www.makergear.com/products/groovemounts and making it fit. Since then I haven't had any issues. I even went so far as to make stls of the peices I used so that if others want to try it they won't have to do quite so much sanding.
  11. The filiment drives I am referring to are these: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=277 viewtopic.php?f=6&t=371 It's hard to tell, is the bulging end the side that would have been on the hot end of the printer? Your issues look very similar to my own.
  12. Hey baphi, I feel your pain. I think the test Owen has you doing is your best option at this point. It seems likely that printing at 245c could cause issues if you aren't printing fairly fast as the heat transfers up the plastic. If you are still having issues after this last test, the only other things I can think of that you might try would be to print either geohagens or Scott's alternate filiment drives. Or if it is an issue with the hot end you could try my fix. I'm still testing it but things have been going much smoother. I'd be happy to fill you in on how I made it work since I haven't posted all of the results yet.
  13. This thread has some useful information on available software etc...viewtopic.php?f=11&t=79
