    Back up and running at last

    I'm back up and running at last. Replaced the original MB with a RAMPS set up, the supplied drivers (A4988) only give 1/16 stepping so I've now ordered some DRV8825's so I can run @ 1/32 but so far so good

    Id say you have some issues on the extruder...those corners...

    I loaded my 'old' Simplify fff settings, plus printing a small cube involves lots of sharp changes in direction which is difficult to handle for most extruders unless your acceleration settings are perfect.

    I'm pretty impressed with the print quality of My RL200 using a RAMPS set up even with only 1/16 stepping, it seems as though the old moire pattern has finally disappeared

    NOw thats weird...I always asumed the moiree effect was related to mechanical effects and not to the electronics...
