RE: 3d printers for making stuff for the RV

the lidar only works with their slicer... I wish them luck. I don't have a need for another printer at this point.

RE: 3d printers for making stuff for the RV

ASA print belowThat's some nice work. My Prusa wouldn't print any better than that unless it was set at 0.15 with a 0.25 nozzle. That'll slow ya down. thats was a .4 at .16 layer

RE: 3d printers for making stuff for the RV

yea i saw that came out. Everyone thinks the price point is actually too low. They don't feel its going to last long term, also everything including the slicer is closed source and cloud based. That alone would stop me from buying it, especially if they go under in a year etc.... I have spoke to the voron groups, those that own voron's and enders, and they themselves said the quality is not better, just faster. So I am going by what they said. I have seen stuff come off voron's looks no different then mine. and my ender is pretty much stock. Wish you luck on whatever path you choose. Voron's don't make ROI sense for me, when you can by 10 enders for 1 voron. If I was printing huge stuff all the time I would, I actually considered a 0.1 vs a 2.4 since most of my stuff fits in that build size.

RE: 3d printers for making stuff for the RV

Ha, I didn't recognize where that was. I don't know what we would buy if we were in the market today. There is a lot more available on the market today and the technology has grown since I was shopping around in 2015. I see it as a tool, DW sees it as a hobby toy, so it would come down to whatever she says. I'll keep my Prusa and she can have the new toy. I think this Prusa will last me a long time. I saw Ender has a small flexible enclosure for $60. That's not a had deal if it works Prusa's, are still considered the best option for an out of the box experience, and after talking to voron people, the voron's don't print better then the ender's just faster. I only got a second printer, because I started selling, and stuff comes in waves. I am not going to complain about the Ender, my original is rolling up on 1500 hours, and I don't even watch the first layer anymore, turn it on go to bed, get part in the morning etc. and print quality is not really going to be beat, at least not from what I have seen from other printers. ASA print below, no enclosure. https://i.imgur.com/YfOf3nW.png width=500

RE: 3d printers for making stuff for the RV

Man,I like your counter top. Did you make that? Did you get another Ender? No, Thats the factory bottom for the overcab, with all the cushioning removed. I picked up another e3v2. I was strongly looking at doing a voron, but the ROI doesn't pencil out for me.

RE: 3d printers for making stuff for the RV

been doing some 3d stuff, nothing hugely worth noting, did make some boxes to cover conduit to deal with a wiring issue in my rv, terrible photo, all the white squares and corner piece are 3d printed. picked up another printer as well, but nothing interesting there. Mostly trying to get ASA printing to be reliable,(tried a g10 print bed, failed) and I think I got there today, will see soon. https://i.imgur.com/XkcfqOh.png width=500

RE: Replaced WFCO with PD

i have a 9145, with the wizard pendant. it simply allows you to pick what stage you want to be in manually. most will just push it once (light goes solid) and it drops into boost mode. to rush charge the battery, otherwise, you generally don't need to touch it. based on the led's on it though, you can determine what stage its currently running in.

RE: Poly Glow.

My Zep finish is has been going strong for more than 5 years. If you want some details, I posted about it recently in the Truck Camper forum, the thread about Bigfood black streaks. I don't know if Poly Glow is similar, but for Zep, surface prep is very important. You must remove old waxes, oxidation, dirt and then apply several thin coats of Zep. what did you use to remove all the dirt, wax, oxidation? my rig is fiberglass.

RE: Upgrading converter

"The PD might do 14.4 at first depending on what it "sees" but you can use the Charge Wizard to make it kick up to the 14.4 and it stays there for four hours. That works too but you can't pick other voltages." You absolutely can change to whatever stage you want on the PD with a wizard.

RE: Upgrading converter

I apologize for hijacking this thread. I am interested in a possible converter upgrade as well. First, I have a WFCO WF-8935 - 30AMP, not 55AMP. Trying to decide if I have a battery charging problem or battery problem. I have 2 2year old 6V Duracell batteries. When I put them on an external charger, they charge right up, but aren't holding the charge for long. Using the installed WFCO charger, they never seem to get to full charge status. This is a new problem as I just installed the batteries after winter storage a couple weeks ago. We are getting ready for memorial day weekend and turns out I booked the wrong site with no power or water, not sure how I missed that. But, we have a generator and can top off the batteries, just don't want to do that every day or even try to get away without using the gen if I can. Question 1. How do I test to see if the converter is working correctly and charging the batteries? I feel like I'm not putting my leads in the right place, only ever getting a little over 12v DC. Question 2 if I replace the converter, what is a good substitute? Will the PD 4635WV slide right in? Is there a case to go larger? 45 or 55 AMP? If so, what else do you need to change? Any other suggestions? Not a newby to RV's but have never had to mess with the electrical system other than switching to 6v and finding a disconnected ground which caused my electrical system to not work... Thanks in advance for any advice. Just an FYI, not switching to LiIon, Not adding solar... etc. What I have works when it's working. We only boondock 3-4 times a year and the gen works fine to recharge the batteries when it works. We try to camp away from other people when we can. Make a new thread, hijacking helps no one including you.

RE: Renogy Battery Monitor vs Trimetric UPDATE- Camping Test

I still have not figured out the right way to reset the AH counter once I get the batts to known Full. I would like to push whatever buttons and then drop the charger to Float voltage and walk away. The video says hit the Up button? At the moment, I have the battery picture on the left showing 200AH as Full (but 199 as soon as I drop to Float for some reason). Not sure how I got that to show 200 after some random button pushing. Anyway after a few up and downs it does hit 200 going up, but I would like to know how to make it do that every time I want it to--namely right after I get the batts to Full. Thanks for any help. you hold the ok button down to set parameters. the AH resets once it reaches high voltage, which is adjustable.

RE: Renogy Battery Monitor vs Trimetric UPDATE- Camping Test

you can turn off the led backlight. not sure why wattage or time left is useless to you, but to each their own.

RE: no charge at batteries

it sounds more like your battery's are disconnected from the charger. even if the batteries are dead. which they aren't you should see the voltage climb with the converter connected. if the voltage is not increasing you have a disconnect or a bad wire inline
