(SOLVED) Hotend goes into standby

  • Hi and Happy New Year.

    I am hoping that someone can maybe help me with these problems I am having.

    I am setting up my printer and when I try to print, the bed and hotend heat up then probe the bed but will only probe the right hand half of the bed having finished this it moves on to printing but as soon as it does it switches the hotend into stanby and fails because the temperature goes low.0_1546285135426_config.g

    Here is the beginning of the gcode I was trying to print0_1546285780396_gcodecube.txt .

    It has been a slow path rebuilding my A8 but hopefully if I can get past these problems. I will be on the home straight.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    It would seem that the T0 at the end there is toggling your hotend to standby. Do you have simplify adding that T0 somewhere in its gcode fields?

    Also, your config.g is selecting T1 at startup.

    The tool count starts at 0. So I suggest that you modify the tool section of your config to define tool 0 instead of tool 1, select tool 0 at startup, and then simplify should be configured to work with tool 0 where appropriate.

    ; Tools
    M563 P1 S"Hotend" D0 H1                ; Define tool 1
    G10 P1 X0 Y0 Z0                          ; Set tool 1 axis offsets
    G10 P1 R0 S0                             ; Set initial tool 1 active and standby temperatures to 0C

    So P1 would become P0, and then

    T1                                       ; Select first tool

    T1 would become T0

  • Thanks for that I am giving it a try will let you know.

  • I found the problem in simplify3d in the extruder temperature settings. It was as you said. Thanks a lot for your help with that.

    One more step closer.

    Incidently how do you manage to display files in the manner you do, I looked when making my post but couldn't find how?

    Thanks again
