You will not need to sacrifice the bowden tube setup. Both the E3D v6 and the Bondtech extruder are designed to work with bowden tubes.We have a guide on installing the E3D v6 hot end on the Rostock MAX. We do not have a guide on installing the Bondtech, but we do sell a mount and the process is fairly straightforward.
The link you provided features nozzles that are not compatible with the Orion. The ends look similar, but are not the same.The nozzles available for the Orion (and Rostock) can only be purchased through SeeMeCNC: http://www.seemecnc.com/collections/parts-accessor...
There is no need to make it a macro. You can load .gcode files into the queue the same as an .stl.There is a project called IceSL, which is an integrated modeler and hardware accelerated slicer. Theoretically, this should allow it to generate G2/G3 commands directly from the model geometry. I haven't tried it myself, and I can't find any documentation saying it actually does this, though.
Stock retract setting was 7mm changed it to 2.5mm and it seems to work much better now. Was also able to remove the E3D hotend, clean the dust that had accumulated on the cooling fins, checked to make sure the nozzle was tight against the heat break. All these together seemed to solve the problem. Thanks for the help,
Hey guys,I wanted to just add a little clarity from the engines perspective. Ryan has described the correct way to calibrate the printer, and even a little pressure on the paper can result in printer being at a true zero. But to be clear, if you could calibrate the printer perfectly, zero is zero. Just exactly touching the bed with no pressure at all.Where is zero on a perfectly calibrated printer?The nozzle just exactly touching the bedNo pressure down, no gab between them.The print leveling actually subtracts out the paper width to try and get this exact calibration.
