32 bit Board Sugestions for a Kossel?

by registeredthing

Last night while upgrading my effector on my Anycubic Kossel Linear Plus I zapped (static) my GLCD (on the metal bezel of all places), and probably also blew some I/O's my Re-ARM which is attached to it. I'm waiting on a replacement display to check it out before I know for sure. I've been using the Re-ARM with RAMPS 1.6 (running Marlin 2.0) for a while and like it for the most part, but the Re-ARM is far from perfect (but it is cheap). If my Re-ARM is blown, I would like to look at other options. The only thing that I think I would really call a need with a 32bit board is Marlin support, and stepstick driver support, any suggestions or experince with em?

Hotend won't heat up.

by Mkvgz

So im just havin an issue with my Kossel Linear Plus where my hotend wont heat-up, not even a degree.

What i've tried and seen:

  1. When putting something to print it shows : 18/200 . So it can read the temperature, so i think that means thermistor rod that goes across the block its fine, right?
  2. I've connected it to pronterface, i can home, send commands but when i set the extruder to high temperature, same, doesn't goes up and the graph on pronterface shows nothing.
  3. Have checked every motherboard connection, no changes.
  4. I have tried to set the temperature without the layer fan, still same. Not a single degree.
  5. Can't adjust PID either.

What could it be? Fried motherboard?

Thanks in advance.

Has anybody tried Igus Igubal joints?

by Splic3dBread

One paper they seem absolutely perfect. Extemely tight tolerences, reasonably priced, don't rely on springs like ball cup arms, and can't fall off like magball arms. Only person who has tried them is David Crocker and he didn't say much about how well they worked for him in his blog. Only thing he said is that they began to wear out rather fast due friction from the tight tolerences but I'm sure that could be fixed with white lithium grease. I'm suprise I haven't seen others using them. Anyone have any experience with them that they could share?
