Hi, I am extremely new tro 3D printing to begin.
I would consider myself capable of learning the fine art of hobby 3d printing, as I have built and managed
to produce a few failed prints from my k8200.
The build was great, and I am super proud that I managed to assemble and wire the printer correctly first time.
I just have some issues while printing.
The orinter is very temperamental with it’s connection. When connected to Repetier it sometimes responds to commands using the manual controls, and it sometimes doesn’t. I find myself having to re connect, or push the little clicky butrton on top of the circuit board (i assume this clears the commands, or like a reset or something)
I have had some issues with the ABS coming through the extruder, and have been giving it a helping hand at the beginning of prints, then it seems to flow ok. However, the 4 test prints I have done, the prinmter disconnects itself from my PC halfway through prints.
It just aborts the connection, and a com port error appears.
These are my two main issues, along with a few motor issues which I think I can rectify.
If there is anyone that can give me some advice on connections, firmware issues maybe, I would be most appreciative.
I am using Windows 7 64bit and Repetier host V0.95F
