As most of you might have noticed we are getting tons or Ramps issues, 5V regulators, drivers with wandering voltages, random issues. The back end issues that you don’t is me always scrambling to find a good supply of ramps stacks. When I do find good ones I but lots and lots of them but eventually the quality slips and they will not or can not get the other boards. I have to build, flash, set drivers, test it all, double check the drivers. In doing that I lose a ton of “mega’s”, ramps, drivers, and LCD’s. This is why my Ramps stacks cost so much more than amazon or ebay, I have tested them. I have a new batch with heat sink tape that actually seems to melt at anything above room temp…WTF.
So I am not going to carry any more import ramps stacks after this small batch I have here.
Here is the problem. The mini-rambo doesn’t have enough drivers to run the new Dual endstop firmware and I think it is pretty valuable and would prefer all the users have the option to run it once they have gained some experience with the basics of the machine. The full sized rambo has enough drivers but costs more (Pretty sure it will be $40 over the cost of the mini-rambo). On top of that the Archim is the exact same price…but the 32 bit version of marlin is lagging behind and I am not sure I have the skills to be able to fix all the issues. I am not bitching about prices I absolutely love the ultimachine products but it is hard for some people to come up with the extra expense.
1-In your opinion is a cheap board from me necessary? (Offer a bundle with no board and you buy whatever you want?)
2-Full sized Rambo or Archim? (I might carry both but these orders are in the 5 digit price so I don’t want to just sit on the inventory).
