  1. Hello all, I have a printrbot metal plus... Through Cura, I have been trying to make sure all of the motors move the way I want them to. If I press the home-y button, the y-motor works flawlessly. If I press the home-x button, the x-motor works flawlessly. However, for example, if I press the individual y+ or y- buttons, there is no movement whatsoever. So, why might the home selection work, and not the individual selections?
  2. Thanks so much for all of your insight. I greatly appreciate it. And yeah, you may have convinced me to grab an ultimaker...
  3. Thank you for the insight; this is actually very helpful! Since you are very articulate and helpful, may I bring up one more issue? When I go to move the individual stepper motors for my printrbot, such as x,y, or z, Cura won't recognize the task. However, when I select a home position, such as x-home or y-home, Cura will respond nicely. So, I know I do not have an issue with the motors. I am not sure though why I cannot move a particular motor. For example, if I want to simply move the z-motor, Cura will not respond.
  4. Thank you for the quick reply... I am not too familiar with the process of "rebuilding" Marlin. Are there any good internet resources I should check out pertaining to this?
  5. Hello everyone, I have a printrbot printer, and I want to print material that has a melting point above 300 C. I bought a micron3dp extruder to print at such temperatures, but how do I alter the firmware to accept temperatures higher than 300 C? For instance, when I enter a temperature value above 300 C, the software will immediately revert the entered value back to 300. Any insight?
