WoodMAXi3 / Prusai3 Troubleshooting Guide

Published on in Series RepRap WoodMAX i3 Build Manual

In this guide we will collect the most commonly known 3d printing issue faced by our customer and their solutions. Heat bed not reaching target temperature This can be due to Due to not enough power, Heat bed requires at least 12V, 500W power supply. Try upgrading it Surrounding environment is too cool, You need to build a heat chamber to keep the printer warm Fan blowing on your heat bed, try lowering the fan speed Hotend not reaching the target temperature Surrounding environment is too cool, You need to build a heat chamber to keep the printer warm Fan blowing on your heat bed, try lowering the fan speed Not enough power, try upgrading your SMPS unit Check the thermistor and heating cartridge What is the extrusion temperature for PLA/ABS?


WoodMAX FAQ

Is there a heated bed included? Yes Size coupler for Z-axis? The coupling is basically a plastic tube - So check for a plastic tube You can also use 5mm/5mm Flexible Aluminum coupler (optional) Plastic tube as coupler should be ok for most cases if you find it not good, you can upgrade it using 5mm/5mm coupler anytime Is the GT2 timing belt of 2 meters sufficient for the build?


Thing to do Before 3D Printing

Published on in Series RepRap WoodMAX i3 Build Manual

So now you kit is assembled, and you are ready to start 3D Printing, but before 3D Printing we need to do some fine tuning. Lets see them here one by one. Preparing Printbed The Printbed is not perfectly flat, so you will need a glass that you can put on top of Printbed. For WoodMAX i3 and Prusa i3 use glass in size of 3 mm thick 21cm x 22 cm


Powering Up WoodMAXi3 3D Printer

Published on in Series RepRap WoodMAX i3 Build Manual

In this guide we will show you how to safely power up your assembled 3D Printer Kit, these steps can be applicable to any models Power Supplies Know your electronics: RAMPS/Arduino board is powered by 3 ways, (refer below connection diagram) USB - via USB cable from Arduino to PC, USB also serves as a communication port SMPS - 11A from Main Power Supply - supplies power to Heatbed SMPS - 5A from Main Power Supply - supplies power to Stepper Motors and all components Turn on the SMPS Disconnect USB cable between PC and Arduino (to avoid wrong connection damaging your PC) Turn ON SMPS If there is no smoke or burn, its a sign of electronics and connections are OK.
