[SOLVED]Nothing happens when i press the extrude button?!

  • Hello,

    I am trying to get my extruder to extrude. I have it set up on the E0 stepper, and everything is up to temp. When i press extrude, nothing happens. This is a problem for me.

    When i look at the "machine settings" section of the websever, it says that the endstop for the extruder is active (i think that might have something to do with it not extruding) but i can't figure out how to get rid of that issue?

    I tried:

    M574 X2 Y2 Z2 E0 S1 //E for extruder, and 0 for no endstop


    M574 X2 Y2 Z2 S1 E S0 // S0 to switch the extruder endstop from Active High to Active Low (no dice)

    Ignore the extruder endstop status, it's not relevant.

    Assuming you are using the web interface to command extrusion, if you go to the GCode Console page, are there any error messages there?

  • May be my sgusstion it is too easy, but you have heated up the hotend ?
    From my knowledge it releases extruding via webinterface above 160 degrees.

  • hello,

    thanks for the quick replies. Nothing shows up in the terminal (i am using the web interface). I am up to temp (220c).

  • Your M92 in the config file: M92 E0:492.45
    Means that your E0 stepper is 0 steps per mm and E1 is 492.45 per mm
    I believe what you want is M92 E492.45

  • Thanks, colons always cause a stink 😄

    almost time to print all the things!
