Heated bed for sale

by redstorm64

Looking to sell a heated bed I purchased from a Kickstarter when I first got my Micro. Unfortunately the Kickstarter project was super delayed (go figure) and by the time I got my bed my printer was no longer working reliably. I used the bed a handful of times when I first got it and it's just sat since then. Link to the kickstarter project is below.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1668748285/the-micro-m3d-compatible-heated-print-bed?ref=user_menu

I was actually pretty happy with the quality of the product. Includes a heated aluminum bed with PEI on top, power module, power adapter, and bed mounts that use the existing holes in printer. I used it with Octoprint and the M33 Fio firmware and Octoprint auto-detected the bed. The Kickstarter creator also created a simple telnet program for controlling the bed temp via PC without Octoprint but I never tried it. I can send the files he provided though if desired. I assume someone could modify it to run off a temp controller if they wanted to as well.

Since it's just been sitting on my desk for so long I figured maybe somebody could put it to better use. I paid around $100 for the package off Kickstarter, would be willing to part with it for $50 + shipping to wherever you may be. Let me know if anybody is interested.

One corner is up to high.

by MockingbirdGamer

I have the M3D Micro Plus printer and towards the end of a print (it was kind of a tall object if that makes a difference) one of the rails (or whatever they're called, sorry I don't know the exact terminology, but one of the things that makes it go up and down), got way higher than the other ones for some reason. I'm afraid if I try doing a calibration test it might break since all the rails move at the same time. So does anyone know how I can move one rail at a time so I can get the one corner even with the rest, I was hoping not to have to take the entire thing apart, but that's looking like something I might have to do. Or any other ideas on how to fix this problem?

Getting (re)started with my Micro and getting an odd error

by nlbrmn

I have a Micro from the Kickstarter campaign. I was able to make some prints on it originally, but it have been a a few years since I last printed. Anticipating that there had been a software update, I've checked M3D's site, found v1.8.1.0, and installed it along with the new mono item. I am able to run the software. It sees my printer and I have been able to load a filament. However...

When I try to open/load an STL model, I get an error that says:
"objc[37299] : Class
FIFinderSyncExtensionHost is implemented in both /S
ystem/Librar y/PrivateFrameworks/FinderKitframewor
k/Versions/A/FinderKit (0x7fff8fd6fcd0) and /Syste

ationFileProviderOverride (0xll4cd5cd8). Ône of the
two will be used. Which one is undefined,/Users/neil/
Downloads A "" ~'*_4_l_l.stl."

Might anyone here know what this message means and, more importantly, how to solve it so I can actually print?
I have tried opening several different STL files, including "Benchy" and models that I had previously printed... all yield the same error.
If it helps to know, I am using a MacBook Pro running OS 10.13.6

Thanks!

Bricked My Machine Please Help :(

by MissyAmerica

I've spent days designing a model for a contest to win the newest M3D machine. It wasn't printing. During a firmware update it disconnected and now I am getting the "invalid firmware" disaster.
Is there anything I can do?
I need to get these printing now if I'm going to enter the contest.
I have the Micro+
I am BRAND NEW to printing and was finally getting the hang of things. This makes me so sad. I've only had the machine since December.

I have tried...
A different computer
uninstalling the software
installing older versions
etc
I am getting bootloader code B007 (whatever that means)

Thanks in advance!
