Re: Bed Adhesion/Surface Treatments (Is My Bed Attached to the Heat Spreader?)

That's pretty strange. I should've snapped a pic I guess. I appreciate you looking in to it.

So that second layer of film was there by mistake? Haha! Vindication! Thanks Gene, I appreciate it.

Re: Bed Adhesion/Surface Treatments (Is My Bed Attached to the Heat Spreader?)

I'll pick one up, but I'm not sure I'm going to be able to get that under the glass any better than my print-prying tool. I did manage to slip the blade under the glass, but it's not lifting up at all. And I managed to catch and mess up the decal, so I'm not sure I should push it in any further. Edi...

Re: Bed Adhesion/Surface Treatments (Is My Bed Attached to the Heat Spreader?)

I don't have any popsicle sticks but I do have some cuticle sticks, which are like little sharpened dowels with a pointed end and a flat bias-cut end. Didn't budge it in the least, and I'm pretty sure I put enough force on it to break a popsicle stick. It's a mystery. :(

Re: Bed Adhesion/Surface Treatments (Is My Bed Attached to the Heat Spreader?)

Ah... well I tried to get my print-prying tool under there and all I got was glass-on-metal scratching noises. I will see if I can find something like a popsicle stick. At the very least it won't make that unpleasant noise. Thanks for the tip.

Re: Bed Adhesion/Surface Treatments (Is My Bed Attached to the Heat Spreader?)

Gene, do you know anything about the assembly process, specifically re: application of the vinyl decal to the heat spreader? The (possibly unlikely) scenario I am envisioning is that the vinyl decal is manufactured with some sort of film backing on the top face which is not heat-safe, that this film...

Re: Bed Adhesion/Surface Treatments (Is My Bed Attached to the Heat Spreader?)

Would it be safe to use something to lever it up? If I grab it with my fingernails, the whole heat spreader assembly moves with it. When I really yank on it, the whole machine comes with it. I'm a little worried that I'm going to damage whatever is holding the heat spreader to the body. I've only tr...

Re: Bed Adhesion/Surface Treatments (Is My Bed Attached to the Heat Spreader?)

Interesting. I might be mistaken, but I think my bed has been glued on or fused to the heat spreader somehow. Could the decal underneath be sticking them together? Seems strange. There's a kind of telltale mark of some sort of adhesive running around the perimeter of the bed. The picture doesn't sho...

Re: Bed Adhesion/Surface Treatments (Is My Bed Attached to the Heat Spreader?)

Yeah. In hindsight I am at least like 80% sure the problem was with my hot end. The Teflon tube had sloppy cut ends.

Re: Bed Adhesion/Surface Treatments (Is My Bed Attached to the Heat Spreader?)

I got that PLA back in 2014 shortly after I got my Orion. I don't remember the brand, but I do have it packed away somewhere, as I was going to try putting it through a dryer. I'm pretty sure I got it from SeeMeCNC, so I don't think it was a quality issue, but I can't rule it out. There were some pr...

Bed Adhesion/Surface Treatments (Is My Bed Attached to the Heat Spreader?)

So, I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere, and it doesn't seem like it is necessarily a problem but... is my glass bed supposed to be adhered to the aluminum heat spreader? I went to take the glass off to wash it like I do the plates for my Orion but even with the clips turned aside, when I lift it...

Yes, thanks again! The power supply was set to the wrong mains voltage after all. I meant to email you about closing the ticket but was a little distracted last night.

Re: Hot End Chattering/Bouncing Against Bed, Not Much Extruded (Bad config.g?)

So after reading about adarcher's grinding problem I was inspired to swap my tower connections to see if one stepper in particular was skipping. I swapped my stepper and endstop connectors from X to Y, Y to Z, and Z to X, effectively rotating my prints 120 degrees counterclockwise. The chattering/st...

Re: First homing: horrible grinding sounds

adarcher, how did you manage to get the pins out of your KK connectors? I've managed to get pins out of and back in to other Molex connectors but these ones have me stumped.
Thanks,

Re: Hot End Chattering/Bouncing Against Bed, Not Much Extruded (Bad config.g?)

I ran the test print Ryan provided several more times last night and didn't manage to complete any of them. The file definitely includes Z lift though. Not sure what to do next - as per adarcher's thread, I'm thinking about taking apart the KK connectors on my steppers and maybe replacing the pins. ...

Re: Artemis - Build Notes

Aha, yeah I can see how that might yield some pretty strange results. Glad you got it working, thanks for sharing your build. After reading this I was inspired to do the same, but after I unpacked my box I got too excited and just barreled ahead. :)

Re: Artemis - Build Notes

I have a question about your Cura settings. Did you have it set to Repetier and you changed it to RepRap, as per the image in the instructions in the SeeMeCNC guides? Or did you change it to Repetier from some other setting, and that's what solved your problem? Thanks for chiming in on my thread - I...

Re: Hot End Chattering/Bouncing Against Bed, Not Much Extruded (Bad config.g?)

The travel settings in Cura were not visible so I had to go in to the preferences and enable them. Once visible, "Z Hop When Retracted" appears to be enabled by default, "Z Hop Only Over Printed Parts" is disabled, and "Z Hop Height" is set to 1mm. So I'm pretty sure my...

Re: Hot End Chattering/Bouncing Against Bed, Not Much Extruded (Bad config.g?)

Is that a problem in the config files provided for Cura? I haven't used it in a while so it could take me a minute to find the relevant setting. As far as I can tell both the files I sliced and the ones Ryan provided to me have Z lifts over the gaps. I'll look and see what's in there. I think I am a...

Re: Hot End Chattering/Bouncing Against Bed, Not Much Extruded (Bad config.g?)

Each stepper had continuity from red to blue and green to black, about 1.3-2 ohms but I didn't wait long for the number to settle. The extruder seemed to hover a few tenths of an ohm higher, which I guess makes sense given the finer gauge wiring. Any suggestions? Going to do some more reading now. T...

Thanks! I remember reading of some similar problems in your thread - I've been meaning to re-read it. Here's some photos of the Benchy print that Ryan sliced for me. I guess I'll put together an Artemis profile in MatterControl and get ready to try that next.

Re: Hot End Chattering/Bouncing Against Bed, Not Much Extruded (Bad config.g?)

I got in there and pulled all the stepper connections one by one. None of the pins felt loose (I tried to pull them free) and all the tabs were engaged in the windows of the KK connectors. Is that what you meant when you wrote "A fully seated connector will have the metal just below the edge of...

Re: Hot End Chattering/Bouncing Against Bed, Not Much Extruded (Bad config.g?)

I tried changing the P2 to P5, Repetier flavor - my reasoning being that the comments seemed to think that's what it should be, so perhaps whoever generated that file meant for it to be that way. The result was pretty much identical to my first try - the loops at the beginning went OK but then it se...

Re: Hot End Chattering/Bouncing Against Bed, Not Much Extruded (Bad config.g?)

Second try yielded different results. Started the print and it homed as normal. As the hotend descended, at about 100mm above the bed, the motion began to stutter violently. The Z movement stopped around 20mm above the bed before the hotend appeared to start tracing a perimeter, but the movement was...

So I'm trying my first test print and because I don't have any good PLA on hand, I can't use the provided first print file.
