Re: GCODE entry

Sorry about that, I'm preparing an update with example code that sets the M83 so you are doing relative extrusion moves. Are you going to mention that those tasks can be most easily achieved by manually inputting the GCODE into the host? I think it would be good to mention since that's the simplest...

Re: GCODE entry

So I can just send M83 first, and then do my tests? I take it that I should probably set it back to absolute before I go back to printing?

Re: GCODE entry

Ah ha! Yes, I was doing G1 E5 F60, and from what I've read, the G1 command is absolute movement. Ok. I'll have to look further into this! Thanks a lot!

GCODE entry

So, I'm doing a feedrate/flowrate test from @mhackney 's guide for successful prints and I'm profiling a new filament. I know the GCODE to enter to manually extrude at certain feedrate, etc. However, the machine will never take two commands back to back. I'll enter it once, let it do it's thing, cha...

Re: [Solved] Print Warping

Ok, that's good info. I'll see what I can put together. I'm going to upgrade to the HE280 soon, but I have to finish this project I'm working on before I can take the machine down to do the upgrades.

Re: Print Warping

Is your part fan on? It needs to be off (or at a minimal speed) for ABS. Also check that your hotend fan isn't blowing air downwards. I had that issue on my printer, and ended up making a shroud for the hotend fan so that the intake end wasn't flinging air downwards and spoiling one end of the ABS ...

Re: Rostock Max v2 HE280/Accelerometer Upgrade - Summary

Maybe running the I2C and interrupt lines through a ferro core would help eliminate the noise? Just a thought. They're fairly cheap and can usually be snapped around the cable. It would be an easier thing to try first before having to switch out cables. Awesome post though! I'm thinking about upgrad...

Re: New Rostock Troubles

Try printing the attached Gcode on your printer. I tend to run pretty conservative settings within the printer community, but CraftWare estimates your print to complete within 20 minutes. The attached Gcode are set to print the first layer at a height of .2mm, at a speed of 10 mm/s and then 30 mm/s...

Re: New Rostock Troubles

I experimented with a caliper and the gauges and found that the measurement was correct when the gauge had enough resistance that it almost couldn't move. However, what I'm thinking is that I can just use a 0.1mm feeler, since I'm going to offset for it anyway. So I would add the thickness of the fe...

Re: New Rostock Troubles

I've been setting the Z-height by using the controls on the machine, and the above mentioned feeler gauge. Would it be better to use that gauge and then offset the Z-height? The way I usually do it is following the Rostock manual, but using feeler gauges instead of paper.

Yeah, at one point I was using Slic3r and RepetierHost but I wanted to go back to basics while fixing my mechanical problems. I guess I should have just stuck with Slic3r. I've heard good things about KISS though.
