Muchmore CTX-W warmers fix

Just thought I'd share a simple fix for a problem I've seen on two different Muchmore CTX-W warmers. Mine failed at the start of qualifying for an event, so it was *very* inconvenient. A friend had,...

It's going to be a bit more work, but grabcad.com has some examples that might be worth looking at. They're not always intended for printing, but I've sometimes found them a great starting point....

I have two FDM printers (Geetech i3 Pro B & Ender-3), which are pretty good workhorses. Sometimes split multipart jobs between them. They both have ABL (auto bed levelling) sensors fitted and I...

Have you tried a different sensor cable?

In the end though, if there's evidence of water damage or corrosion...

If the mechanics are sound, then there's quite a few good cheap mainboards out there and although there are alternatives, Marlin is very flexible and pretty easy to configure.

I can certainly...

Do you have specific light bars in mind? I've got an existing module that could likely be programmed to do what you want, it's good for up to 300mA as-is.
