Magneto X Technical Update - July 2024

Hey there, Magneto X enthusiasts!

Mark is here with some exciting updates for our beloved printer. Let's dive into what's new and improved for July 2024.

【Magneto X 2024 Q2 Upgrade Kit】

Great news! We've just released the Magneto X 2024 Q2 upgrade kit last week. The best part? All our pre-order customers can get this upgrade kit for free. How cool is that?

So, what's in the box? Let me break it down for you:

  • Loadcell with Metal Mounting Frame: We’ve upgraded the loadcell with a new metal mounting frame to improve sensor performance, ensuring more consistent leveling.
  • All-Metal Runout Sensor: For those printing with filaments containing fibers, we’ve got your back. The new all-metal runout sensor offers superior wear resistance. No more worrying about sensor degradation during long fiber filament prints.
  • Magnetic Part Fan Attachment: We’re making your life easier with this one. The side fan now attaches magnetically, making it a breeze to swap out fans or hot ends. Maintenance just got a whole lot simpler!
  • Improved X-axis Cable: Our new X-axis drag chain cable boasts a more durable outer skin and excellent anti-twisting capabilities. You do not need to swap this but have it handy when you need it.

    We're starting to process new orders now. Keep an eye on your inbox – our team will send you an address confirmation email before shipping out your upgrade kit.

    【Firmware Update: magnetox-v1.1.4-dev】

    For those of you who love living on the cutting edge, we're cooking up version 1.4 of our firmware. It's still in development, but if you're eager to try it out, check out our wiki for upgrade instructions here.

    Here's what's new:

    • Updated KlipperScreen interface to the latest version
    • Added CLEAR_PAUSE function to fix that pesky occasional pause malfunction

    【Nozzle Wiping Feature in the Works】

    I'm really excited about this one! We're currently testing a nozzle wiping solution for the Magneto X. Early results are promising, and the best part? It only requires a simple modification to get great wiping results. Stay tuned for more details on this!

    【OrcaSlicer v2.1 Compatibility】

    Last but not least, we've merged the latest Magneto X profiles into OrcaSlicer v2.1. For the best slicing experience, make sure to download the latest release from our wiki here

    That's all for now, folks! As always, we're working hard to make your Magneto X experience even better. Happy printing, and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or feedback. We love hearing from you!

    Cheers,

    Mark

    Does this kit add the filament routing seen in the latest unboxing video? I would purely love to get those sticky clips off the lid of my enclosure!
