SOLVED Line skips. Cr 10-s5

    Printer down 😳🤔

    I have a serious modified cr10-s5 im running duet wifi 2.. having an issue finding answers on how to set up the M350 and M906 steppers current and proper mode... set at a default of 16 on all 4 steppers.. M906 is set at 500 for all motors.
    I believe this to be wrong based on the fact i have 3 diferant sizes of steppers for x y and z
    Z being the smalest 42-34
    X being 42-40mm the lagest (not marked i beleive is 42-60.) For the y axes. Y skips badly causing line shifts. Can someons clue me in on what and how to dial in my stepers and what current to set my y axes to alleviate the line shifts. Are there also any other setting that sould be checkd or changed ?? Does the 500 number represent milliamps or is it just a random number for reference???
    My printer has been idle for over 2weeks. Looking for the right info. Have exausted you tube. And duet would be greatly appreciated

  • This is what I have on my Ender 3(dis-regard the extruder motor since I have a bondtech with the E3D .9degree pancake stepper motor)

    M906 X950.00 Y950.00 Z850.00 E900.00 I30

  • Thanks will give this a try

  • Can you tell le where to set M350 what mode were set at 16 across the board

  • It's under the "Drives" section....this is my entire drives section but do take it as gospel since I have changed some things on my Ender 3 like the direct drive bondtech extruder

    ; Drives
    M569 P0 S1 ; Drive 0 goes forwards
    M569 P1 S1 ; Drive 1 goes forwards
    M569 P2 S0 ; Drive 2 goes backwards
    M569 P3 S0 ; Drive 3 goes forwards(changed to backwards)
    M350 X16 Y16 Z16 E16 I1 ; Configure microstepping with interpolation
    M92 X80.00 Y80.00 Z400.00 E408.30 ; Set steps per mm (gregs wade was 604 steps)
    M566 X500.00 Y500.00 Z30.00 E600.00 ; Set maximum instantaneous speed changes (mm/min)
    M203 X10800.00 Y9000.00 Z300.00 E3000.00 ; Set maximum speeds (mm/min)
    M201 X1000.00 Y1000.00 Z500.00 E3000.00 ; Set accelerations (mm/s^2)
    M906 X950.00 Y950.00 Z850.00 E900.00 I30 ; Set motor currents (mA) and motor idle factor in per cent
    M84 S30 ; Set idle timeout

  • In M906 i typed M906 Y:950 enter and it changed the y to 0 instead of 950. Any idea what i did wrong???

  • @ziggymanpopo
    And thanks for the info gettting a claerer pickture every day. 😁

  • Does the entire string of M-code need to be typed when changing current on one steper and why cant i now chainge it back to what it was at 500. I think im missing how to make the enty?????

  • After you changed it in the config file did you save it and the duet reboot?


  • Well that make me ask this do i make my changes in the config file or thru the gcode console ive ben using the g code console

  • In the config.g file if you want them to stay permanent. If you do it just on the top in the command line it will only be temporary until you turn the unit off or it reboots/resets. Doing changes up top is nice if you want to change something on the fly/mid print or just try something first but it's only temporary.

  • Awsome i think you pionted me on the right direction. I am wondering why it wont chainge it in a terminal environmental?? Or does it. Ill let you know shortly 😊👍

  • James. I thank you for For taking the time to teach me
    I now understand how to make the changes and it worked. Only thing left is to sy thank you and run a test print 👍😊 i have some other small issues ill post later but this gets me up

  • Good luck and take your time.
