Problem Solved - I noticed that when looking at the "Machine Properties/Z Probe" section that the Trigger Height was on 0.7mm even my G31 was set to Z-0.2.
I removed the G31 fron the config.g and manually typed it back in and it all works now!
@PUGCanada I have an Ender 3 Pro also with a Maestro also.
it may not sag but it might be out of align with the other side.
I have to measure between the top of the leg and the X gantry on the left and compare with the right.
The right hand side might feel that it has no play, but please check the height.
I have found a difference of 5 - 10mm either too high or low and requires the occaisional 'tweak'!
My guide wheels are tight too, but the occaisional headcrash, me not watching what I am doing, i just check it as a sanity check!
Phaedrux, thanks for the reply! I made all the changes you've mentioned besides pressure advance as im saving that for a bit later. I have a tevo tornado with a geared extruder. My bowden tube is around 400mm. I am testing a print right now and my extruder is flying! might have to turn acceleration down on that lol
While my other printers (not CoreXY) have the homing position and the 0,0 origin at the back/right of the printer...front left works for me too, kinda the same thing if you rotate the whole printer 180 degrees.
Following the directions from the link that you gave me determined that my motors were swapped.
Homing now positions the carriage at the rear/left or X0, Y300 which is where it needs to be for Home, sending the carriage to the origin at 0,0 places it at the Front / Left where it needs to be!
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction and helping me sort this out.
I don't think so but it's been a while since I've looked at that guide. The p9 mode also simplified how the deployment and retraction of the probe pin worked. So if you are manually deploying and retracting the pin in your homing files you no longer need to do that, because it's handled by the firmware now automatically when G30 or G29 is issued.
@nightreaver said in Z offset issue:
@57buick Hey if you want to lift the nozzle after calibration, your trigger height must become smaller, not bigger.
So maybe try something like Z1.65 or 1.61
OMG! @Nightreaver I feel like an idiot, you were right I needed to go more negative. Everything I read on how to setup the bltouch and configuring the offset seemed to indicate I needed to go positive to move the nozzle up and also on the job status page on the web interface I had to click "positive" up in .05 increments until filament could come out so it was very misleading. Thanks for your help, my first print is running now we will see how it comes out
Checked what you said and it solved my problem.
For some reason the cables on the endstops were ALL wired incorrectly (and all were different in the way they were connected) so I checked everything with a multi meter and everything is no correct.
Also i needed to set them to normally open instead of normally closed.
Everything is now homing perfectly as it should. On to the next bump!
Thank you for your help!
@kmhudgins Well the Hero Me printed successfully, but I managed to choose the wrong part to print. There are over a dozen to choose from. I printed the dual blower mount instead of the single blower mount.
@paulhew said in My first PET-G Carbon print - setting suggestions please.:
Is it possible to change the PA whilst it is printing?
Yes. That's one of the advantages of RepRap firmware - one can change pretty much anything "on the fly". Speeds, accelerations, PA, firmware retraction parameters, etc etc...
Edit - If you aren't already doing so, I would advise you to use firmware retraction just for the ability to tune it "on the fly". You can always resort back to slicer generated retraction using the settings you derive from using firmware retraction (but why bother?).
@bondus said in Warning: Heater 1 appears to be over-powered:
The thing heats up really fast,
This is also why it can reach that insane max temperature.
The risk is if the power mosfet will fail and become a short. The CPU will not be table to turn it off unless it can shutdown the power supply.
@t3p3tony said in Caution when configuring/wiring multiple hot end heaters:
@deckingman sorry at least we have sorted it in Duet3/RRF3
No worries. I knew better but just forgot. It caused a brief sanity check but no long term mental health issues Oh and no damage to the Duet boards in any way.
For those interested in changing post processor for Vcarve. I got this instant reply from Vectric
You cannot use " marks in the list of commands as these are used to tell the software that this is where a line begins or ends.
On Page 28 of the Post Processor editing guide this is described in more detail.
For example the line:
M291 P"Have you set work coordinates ?" S3.
is replaced with
"M291 PHave you set work coordinates ? S3."
Thanks Vectric for that.
Looks like your connection to Duet3D was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
