I will try this first, I also have a precision piezo that I might design a mount to go under the nimble, im a big fan of the zesty nimble.
Just wanted to see if this was "do-able" my next task is to get the smart effector to talk to the LC-1 Tool board !!! and see if I can use multiple duet IR sensor boards purely as end stops.
I can get the IR sensor to detect the heads of an Allen bolt so I dont see how it cant be made to work.
finally i mange to flash the smart effector with the hex file provided by dc42. but i am still having problem. the green light does not light up at all. also the probe function is not working.
what else can i check?
I suggest you use your multimeter to measure the resistance between H+ and D1 (should be 750 ohms), between the other side of D1 and D9 (0 ohms), between the other side of D9 and D7 (0 ohms), and between the other side of D7 and H- (0 ohms).
Take a look through these
I run G32 and G29 S1 to enable mesh levelling which is not always need if your bed is in good shape and level I dont run G29 everytime as it stores the heightmap
I run G29 if something has change ...nozzle, effector but only then
Yes you need to make sure the nozzle is clean as it cant account for plastic on the nozzle.
You can run G30 S-1 to do a single probe as a minimum for G29 S1 to be effective
Hope this helps
I can't see anything obvious on that smart effector. Since this particular smart effector is still within warranty and we can't see any obvious damage we will authorize a replacement. Please contact your seller and initiate a warranty exchange.
@CoolioX said in Smart effector flashes 7 times repeatedly.:
@Phaedrux -- I have recently purchased a few smart effectors and without fail I have 3 of these that are flashing 7 times. I do have one that does work, so I'm pretty sure it's not anything having to do with the external set ups, but it seems strange to me that a bunch of them would have the same issue?
For reference, where are the strain gauge traces?
Hi, please create a new thread with your issue for the sake of clarity.
Hey all I looked over my config and realized I'm an idiot. I was pulling specs off a site and they were way off. I lowered it and was able to get the probe to work properly and just need to wait until I'm off work to load some filament in and get started. thanks again guys!!
Yes I am using e3d hotends, v6 (0.4mm nozzles and smaller) and volcano (nozzle larger than 0.4mm.
Having a own smart effector for every nozzle might be a little overkill, not to mention that it would be a little expensive. The ultimaker-printcore way would be perfect, but I am afraid I would have to design it myself for the smart effector. Probably it might become a little bulky.
But the option with the pigtail connector seems quite nice. I will give it a try.
Start with 1mm of retraction and see if there is an improvement.
You can use firmware retraction so that you can modify it on the fly during a print. This is useful for the tuning phase since you don't have to rely on the slicer and reslice the whole file again to change the retraction.
These macros may help in your tuning.
@Elvis0z said in Smart effector hotend fault 315c:
@dc42 Just put another sensor in to see what happened and I get this error
M305 P1 x200
Failed to initialise RTD bad response from the sensor.
If you change the sensor to a thermistor you'll need to change the configuration as well. M305 P1 x200 is for a PT100.
@bearer - Well yeah maybe, but that's also the reason for asking, the Smart Effector's central probing angle would make it much less likely to suffer effector tilt. Like.. people with dual nozzles still need to probe their beds one way or another.
This only matters when probing anyhow, "triggering" when printing wont do anything.
a little late to the party; in theory motion in the x/y plane might let the magnets induce a voltage in the strain gauge which is a coil in that respect. motion in the z axis will have a much less effect.
so if you suspect inaccuracies as a result of the magnets, then just probe slower (which will hep with accuracy in itself regardless of magnets and theoretical coils)
