AliExpress Nema17 stepper motors on Prusa = Bad idea :(

by Linuxglobal

Just a heads up for people looking into aftermarket prusa mk2 steppers for replacement or upgrade. They look the same, same wiring, etc but the Z axis really show their weakness.

Stay away from the off brands. I got a replacement set on the way from Prusa direct (from chat convo).

I got mine refunded, but they were super weak torque wise.

Anyone have similar experiences ?

Temperature cycling

by Portalmini


I noticed in my recents prints that the hotend temperature cycle from 212 to 218°C when set to 215°C.
Is that acceptable ?
I feel like it's the case since I change the heater cartridge (for a basic one buyed on amazon). Could the cartridge be the suspect ?
Or is there a calibration needed ?

Thanks for you advices.

Prusa i3 MK2S USB gone dead


Yesterday, late, after cleaning the heatbed, suddenly the usb stopt working.
Tried another usb port, another pc, octoprint, ... no response.
So i think the usb port on the rambo is down.
I've checked prusa shop and did not find any replacement electronics.
Where do i get a replacement electronics for my i3 MK2S (if possible with software loaded)

I can print from the SD card, but on my last print i had a layer shift,
so i think replacing the electronics is the best solution.
