Re: Control board connector issue

For a short fix and for info, you don't really need the heat bed for printing anyway.

Re: Power supply cable problem - GT2560 a+ nearly burned !

my connector has just burnt. checked it after printer lost power during print and its completely burnt out!

Re: Some of my prints on the Pro W

im using cura for slicing.
profiles and settings will change depending on the model and the material being used and also individual printers so copying settings and profiles dont really work.

Re: Power supply cable problem - GT2560 a+ nearly burned !

i have been keeping an eye on my molex after i saw this and its started to do the same thing!
WTF geeetech!?!?!?!

only thing ive been doing different is running the bed at 70 instead of 50.
I am no longer using this printer as it is not safe!

Re: CuraEngine Configurations

just use cura, its free and better than repetier in my opinion
also using other peoples configs might not work for yours, as they are configured for the individuals printer.
