When I go to all I get is a blank page with the words "pageok" at the top left corner.
Is there any way to fix this?

xxHero 101 Printing and then ... not printing

02 Jul, 2017, 18:44:35 PM by Boub | Views: 250 | Comments: 3

Hi All,

I received this hero 101 quite unexpectedly. My step brother had entyered into some buying fever around 3D printers and already has 2 when eventually he received the 101hero, so he gave it to me. Nice gift.. or not.
I assembled the pinter without ruining it, and printed the star, and it worked OK, then I got impatient and wanted to immediatly print something else, like a small din,o for my son.
Of course I did not calibrate nor level... After 10mn I was starting to get a very nice melted-plastic-spaghetti-poo so I... turned it off and move the arms up.... manually (but gently)
I'm total noob in 3d printing and probably very stupid when I get impatient

I then tried to run the star again, the motor test, the back home but nothing moves . The extruder was functionning when I tried the star again. I have a USB connection on the printer but not sure how this works, I haven't seen a soft on the 101 Official website
I also installed Repetitier but can't figure out how to send something to the 101

>my question is : should I throw the printer out now or is there something that can be done ?

Thanks for your help,

xxPrint size less than 150 mm. Can not print a circle with a diameter of 140mm.

Why when printing a circle with a diameter of 150 cm, a 10x10 cm square with rounded edges is printed. The diagonal of the square is 13 cm.

xxRAMPS mount?

For those that have moved to a RAMPS controller, what are you using for a mount?  Where are you placing it?
Any ideas or suggestions?  I also have a Rumba controller, maybe it being flatter than the RAMPS/Arduino I can mount on bottom?

xxAnyone got a spare 101Hero controller to sell?

I fried the Atmel chip on the 101Hero controller last night by plugging in an LCD display incorrectly -  I misaligned the row of pins. heh
The result was a wonky display, a super hot regulator and a crater in the top of the Atmel chip which also gets pretty hot now.

I'll move to something else but would like to keep the original parts working as well.
