Hotend completes autotune but errors on cold heat up
I just upgraded my delta from an azteeg x5 mini to a Duet WiFi on 3.2.2 Stable. Running a 24v power supply. Everything works great but the hotend keeps throwing an error when I try to start a print or set the temp manually.
Heater 1 fault: temperature rising much more slowly than the expected 2.2°C/sec
I've tuned the hotend 3 times and it completes within 10 cycles without a hitch. The block, heater and thermistor are volcano clone from TriangleLabs. I set the thermistor according to their recommendations and it matches what my IR thermometer reads. I can get it to print by resetting a few times and once it gets over 100C the error doesn't trigger any more.
I tune close to the bed to account for deflection of the part cooling fans on the large volcano heater block, which has a silicone sleeve on it to minimize the interference from the 2 x 4010 radial fans that kick in from layer 2 on. I print PLA mainly so my fans are 100%.
Here are the heater models in my config.g (I have the same M307 lines in config-override.g and M501 initiated in config.g):
; Heaters M308 S0 P"bedtemp" Y"thermistor" T100000 B4092 ; configure sensor 0 as thermistor on pin bedtemp M950 H0 C"bedheat" T0 ; create bed heater output on bedheat and map it to sensor 0 M307 H0 R0.378 C464.142:464.142 D6.18 S1.00 V24.0 B0 ; set PID for bed heater 0 M140 H0 ; map heated bed to heater 0 M143 H0 S120 ; set temperature limit for heater 0 to 120C M308 S1 P"e0temp" Y"thermistor" T100000 B4725 C7.06e-8 ; configure sensor 1 as thermistor on pin e0temp M950 H1 C"e0heat" T1 ; create nozzle heater output on e0heat and map it to sensor 1 M307 H1 R1.869 C225.363:121.113 D6.25 S1.00 V23.9 B0 ; disable bang-bang mode for heater and set PWM limit M570 H1 P12 ; time in seconds before tripping heater fault for hotend M143 H1 S285 ; set temperature limit for heater 1 to 285C
Is there anything in there that doesn't look right?
I should have mentioned that I've been printing with this machine for 3 years on smoothie with zero issues but Duet and RRF is so much better.
M307 H1 Heater 1 model: heating rate 1.869, cooling time constant 225.4/121.1, dead time 6.25, max PWM 1.00, calibration voltage 23.9, mode PID Computed PID parameters: setpoint change: P15.3, I0.407, D66.9, load change: P15.3, I0.957, D66.9

Sounds similar to my issue
Yes looks the same. I think the new heater model is too paranoid. Maybe a new parameter to relax the heating rate checks could help fix this? I'm down for beta testing if someone can make a fork.
Did you tune with M303 T0 S200? The T0 tunes it as a tool rather than just a heater.
What does the heater graph look like during the tuning process?
@Phaedrux Yeah I tuned it as a tool using M303 T0 S210 so that it can account for the fan in the last phase.
The heater graph looks perfectly normal during tuning, it rises to ~215 and falls to ~205 consistently.
Thanks. There will be some changes coming to the tuning algorithm that should help with this error.

Thanks Phaedrux. What's the most recent version that uses the old tuning method?
