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

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. I appreciate the quick turnover. That problem seems completely resolved; I've run several files including your cylinder, Ryan's Benc...

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. :)
Cheers,

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...

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

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. Everything seems normal - I followed the directions for hotend tuning and bed calibration. When I started printing, the first few loops went down fine, but then the hotend seem...

Re: Can I get an opinion on some perimeter attachment issues?

Somehow my hotend ground came loose. I was afraid I'd sheared it off or something. Back to normal now. Ran a print and watched the pulleys again. They didn't seem to be loose. I took some high-speed video on my phone. Looked good in slo-mo too. So what's next? It seems like a common answer for align...

Re: Can I get an opinion on some perimeter attachment issues?

The towers do appear to be fully seated at the bottom. It seems like this version of the Orion does not have screws on the top, though. As for the pulleys, they seem to be tight. I ran some test prints last night with kind of sloppy marks, and didn't see any drift but wasn't entirely sure. Today I f...

Re: Can I get an opinion on some perimeter attachment issues?

Ah gotcha. I'll open it up in a bit and have a look.

In other news, the towers aren't square. The two in the front skew pretty significantly. I'm not sure how I didn't notice sooner. Is there a way to adjust that in place or am I going to have to tear it down? o.o

Thanks again,

Re: Can I get an opinion on some perimeter attachment issues?

Thanks Gene. The hot end came pre-assembled and feels quire solid. When I poke at it, the only looseness I feel seems to be coming from the motion of the arms/platform. I grabbed the top of the hot end and tried to wiggle it - no motion apparent except in the arms. Then I took a metal probe and push...

Thanks for the reply. Sorry not to get back sooner, I've been getting over a bout of tonsillitis. I played with the Infill Overlap and it did fill the gaps but did not solve the wobble in the printhead. While raising it filled the gaps, it also resulted in quite a bit of slop on the top layer, so I ...

Exactly. I poked at it for a while this afternoon and it seems the empty commented lines may have been the problem.

Re: Updated to Firmware 0.91, can't contine/pause prints

Oh? That's pretty inconvenient but I'll take it under consideration. Do you know why that is? Does the new firmware have problems parsing newlines/carriage returns?

Could you give more of a description of the problem you had? Did it result in the printer not entering the printing/paused modes?

Re: Updated to Firmware 0.91, can't contine/pause prints

All of the files I've tried start with a G28 (with some comments before) and it never gets to homing, but I'll make a new one and try it as described to be sure. Thanks.
