Simplify3D - Attempting to extrude with no tool selected.

  • Hi! i need help - this is my 1st s3d setup and im not able to figure out what is wrong…
    attached gcode file is 101010 cube...

    header is below. it does have T0.... what i'm missing???

    full file is available here!AhtLyZEPcjv9gdEdvirP8HBIY08fEg
    my duetWiFi delta goes crazy… however it prints other models that i make in slic3r

    please help to make it working ...

    M106 S0
    ; Raise bed temp to profile requested bed temp
    M140 S60 ; Raise bed temp to profile requested
    M104 S105 ; Raise hot-end temp to 105C for G32 auto-calibration
    G32 ; Autocalibrate
    M104 S205 ; Raise extruder temp to profile requested
    G21 ; set units to millimeters
    G90 ; use absolute coordinates
    M82 ; use absolute distances for extrusion
    G92 E0
    G1 X0 Y0 Z10 F8000 ; centre nozzle 10mm above bed
    M572 D0 S0.25 ; Pressure Advance
    ; end of my start code

  • Your T0 needs to be before any extruder moves. Move the T0 up to just after the M82.

    Your T0 needs to be before any extruder moves. Move the T0 up to just after the M82.

    I have manually added T0 to gscode startup script.

    it did not help "( could it be relative \ absolute coordinates somewhere ?
    what printer does- it goes to the corner of the bed and does something that is way tooo far from square….

  • Do have the Machine Definition set up correctly in S3D?

  • @number40fan:

    Do have the Machine Definition set up correctly in S3D?

    i found 2 places for machine definition
    (1) G-code tab of Process setting. there i have checked "update machine definition" and selected delta
    (2) tools-options- machine . selected delta.

    (i have delta )

    Is your first (or only) tool numbered zero i.e. P0 in the M563 command in config.g?

  • this is my M563
    [c]M563 P1 D0 H1 F0 [/c]

    i was thinking about T0 … T1 (i have only one extruder).... and checked slic3r generated gcode (that prints well) . it has only T0 inside.

  • It should say M563 P0 D0 H1 F0

  • changed M563… error disappeared, thanks!

    but still printer does not want to print cube. my guess it is something with coordinate system...

  • ok, issue resolved. i misconfigured slicer in terms of bed size.

    Simplify3d (S3D) on round beds… here is a solution

    XY build dimensions as the largest square that would fit inside of the circular print bed (in other words X and Y dimensions should be 0.707*diameter of your bed). Then the X and Y origin offsets should typically be exactly half of the X and Y dimensions of the print bed. That will place the origin directly in the center of your bed (you can verify that in the 3D view in S3D).

    i guess firmware should check that you are not printing out of the physical border…

    You can configure S3D for circular beds. In the GCode tab set Machine Type to Delta.
