Re: first probe problem v3.2

I read through your troubleshooting steps on the Duet site, and I noticed that your SD card is addressed to "0", and that you got it to work. But the macros that you are trying to use access SD card "1". You don't have a SD card "1", so edit your macros to point to SD c...

Re: Orion Prints not coming out square

Check your platform for play. Are you using a printed platform? If so, consider replacing it with a machined or injection molded one. My V2 would print out a 100mm calibration block with the center measuring 10mm, the Z end measuring 10.2mm, and the Y end measuring 9.8mm. Replacing the platform with...

Re: EZR Struders clicking/bowden connectors move slighly

I really don't miss my EZStruder, I yanked mine ages ago. But in the interests of being helpful, would a dab of epoxy keep it in place? I can't recall if you will ever need to pull that apart to work on it, if not then glue it in and forget it. But I would upgrade to a better extruder. I'm testing o...

Re: Max V2 works, but this connector can't be right

You can replace the plug (the burnt part), but I'm sure that the socket was damage as well. I would replace both and you should be good to go. And I gave away my Rambo board after my upgrade to my Duet, so I don't know offhand what this terminal feeds. But I would have to guess that this is the heat...

Re: Filiment stuck at hotend

Or, as in my case, I managed to not notice that I had my fan leads swapped on the Duet board until PLA started getting stuck in the cold end of the hot end. It was pretty obvious what the problem was when I pulled the filament out and saw the it had gobbed up in the cold end. So, check your fan, it ...

SeeMeCNC has their own version of the Smart Effector now, and that may fit your ball and socket arms better. The Duet3D one is designed to be used with magnetic joints. Good to know, thanks!

Re: mesh calibration issues

Observe your hotend as it probes each point. Do you see the hotend sliding horizontally any? Or does it make a quick tap and moves on to the next one? If you see it sliding, then it's your FSR mount causing the problem. 713Maker makes aluminum mounts for the JohnSL FSRs. This is what I use on mine. ...

Re: Cant seem to Calibrate it right.

I had looked for FSR mounts but didn't come up with anything, so I used the three wedges that came with the plate. And I found what was wrong with my "problem child" sensor, I had it mounted too far to one side and not on the center. It might not fix it entirely, but at the very least it's...

Re: Cant seem to Calibrate it right.

Things are worse after trying to adjust my FSRs, which makes me wonder how reliable this system is going to be long-term. I'll probably try new FSRs too, but I can see how one corner sticking will end up making things worse than not calibrating at all.

Re: Cant seem to Calibrate it right.

And another thing that I've noticed with FSRs using the JohnSL FSR controller is that it does its zeroing at powerup. This means that if you remove parts, or just jostle the bed, you might (will, eventually) end up with false triggers or requiring more force than should be necessary. I've reseated m...

Re: Cant seem to Calibrate it right.

I had the same problem. What I do (be it the correct way or not...), is to set my baby steps to .25mm. That's correct for me, yours will certainly be different.

Run yours without filament in the extruder and get it to look just about right, and then add filament.

Re: Cant seem to Calibrate it right.

The important thing with the FSRs is that they trigger with about the same amount of force. You can tell if one of your FSRs is "slow triggering" if you observe that either the bed deflects more on that FSR, or that it takes longer for the FSR to trigger after it touches the bed. Do your b...
