Printrbot identification

by glennemay

Good Morning all,

I recently picked up a printrbot project.

Now, trying to identify exactly which one I have so I can begin with appropriate repair / modifications. Any help is greatly appreciated.

This is not my first 3d printer, just my first Printrbot. :)

Printrbot through OctoPi

by BigLazyB

Spent the weekend getting OctoPi set up to run my modded Printrbot Jr. If you haven't looked into Octoprint, and you are tired of your computer being tethered to your printer you should check it out. Up until about a month ago I used Repetier all the way -- updates to it, to Slic3r and to Cura had me looking for some better software -- besided I needed an excuse to repurpose some of my Raspberry Pi model B's so I could replace them with the new RPi 2.

I would highly recommend looking into it, even if you have no idea what a Raspberry Pi is -- setup is remarkably easy.

Novel filaments

by BigLazyB

Hi all, I am running what used to be a Printrbot Jr -- rebuilt it so now my build area is about 12" x 10" x 18". I am experimenting with some of the new filaments, currently some PET, carbon fiber reinforced PLA, color fab Brass impregnated PLA as well as some of the wood infused PLA. I've had some unexpected and mixed results. Anyone else try any of these?

Bed centering issues - Printrbot Simple makers edition 1405

by kev626

if I mark where the center of my print-bed is, and print a bed calibration print, it appears to be offset by about 2 cm on both axes.
could anybody help me fix this issue?

BTW, I don't use slic3r, I use Cura. Is there a way to solve this bed offset problem with a quick M*** command?

Has anyone adapted Supernight LED Driver, to power up their Printrbot? If so, could a schematic be shown in how it was done.

LCD Controller Kit Substituted

by Bill_Brown

Since Printrbot has the factory LCD Control Kit on backorder/ wishlist. I want to go ahead and add a different controller. My motherboard on my Simple with headed bed is Revision F. Can someone recommend another controller that works with Printrbot?
