Re: Malyan M180 3D Desktop printer ?

Well i've posted the changelog on the main topic.
the 7.8 is stable with better temperature handling, usb print are stable, even doing something else on the PC.
All is functionnal is a good to go.

I will post my setting for Makerware print , i got a pretty good result now.
My next hardware mod will be a more thicker glass bed, because the one in the package is too thin, and so doens't present a good level on the whole surface.
the Z probe need to be shimmed, if not the level spring are too much compressed and bend the heated bed.

A tip for the Malyan M180 ... Set/adjust the level of the print plate when the maximum plate set temperature is reached.

;)
The chinese instructions were less clearer than that ;), i spent an hour retrying all the procedure ;))


I just got the mainboard plan here, and there is an external fan port on the main board. a 12v one .
I might be the spare connector stuck on the right interior side of the printer.
I will relaease the upgraded glass clamp & the fan support when i get back from holidays, i'm now in the mountainnnnn !

Salut !
The OSX driver are i bit touchy.
See there http://wiki.malyansys.com/wiki.php?id=macosx

Osx Pkg : http://www.malyansys.com/downloads/Maly ... MACOSX.pkg

si tu es Mac OSX 10.10 (Yosemite) need enable developer mode:
Terminal :
sudo chown -R root:wheel usb.kext
sudo chmod -R 755 usb.kext
sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"

Pour tester que ca fonctionne .
sudo kextutil usb.kext

ensuite telecharge la derniere version de makerware sur le site de makerbot, puis remplace les fichiers avec le patch present dans le recap.
