Re: Heightmapping fun... NOT!

It happens sometimes: http://forum.seemecnc.com/viewtopic.php?f=111&t=11316#p101555 MHackney's theory is that if the probe points are directly across from the FSR mounts, it can make it teeter or something which causes crazy results. If you look at that thread, he describes his new mounting syst...

Re: Please help us test RRF 1.17 and DWC 1.14 release candidates

I assume if I add a G29 S1 to the end of my config.g file, it will load the bed height map file at start up? FWIW I had issues upgrading the web interface, (The firmware uploaded fine on the first try), when uploading the web interface, it appeared to upload the files, but I continued to run 1.11, ...

Re: Please help us test RRF 1.17 and DWC 1.14 release candidates

That's an interesting observation. I have my FSRs mounted half way between each tower and that point does appear to be exactly across from the FSR mounted between my x and y towers (if I'm reading that graph correctly).

Re: Please help us test RRF 1.17 and DWC 1.14 release candidates

I was unable to reproduce the problem. It happened the first three times I ran the grid compensation, but this time it did not. It may have just been as simple as power cycling the printer.

Re: Please help us test RRF 1.17 and DWC 1.14 release candidates

I'm on a Rostock max V2 with an FSR setup. Every point seemed to trigger and none of them missed the bed. The probe offsets are set to 0. I thought maybe I was missing a command prior to homing my system because I got another error about moving the head before homing. I'll run the test again to find...

Hi there. I finally got everything up and running, but I have an odd bug with my height map. Any clue what could be causing this huge trough?

Hi there. I just decided to try out the RRF 1.17rc3 after a long hiatus. After hitting the update button I lost my connection to my duet. I now think I may have to go about recommissioning the entire duet. Is it possible to reinstall everything from my SD card, or do I need to start over? I think it...

Re: Mattercontrol 13 point calibration

I'm 99% sure it applies the correction to imported gcode. I used to have the 13 point calibration and use Kisslicer. If it wasn't applying a correction to my gcode, the head would have crashed into the bed at several points.

Re: Auto Calibration Standard Deviation

The dialogue that pops up after mine runs says that it flattens it out to about .05, although I've seen it up in the 7's as well.

Auto Calibration Standard Deviation

I'm curious to see what everyone else gets for standard deviation after auto calibration, especially those of you who can print their entire beds. I finally got my auto cal working today. Although it is better than the 0.10-0.12 I was getting with a feeler gauge, it is only 0.08. I was hoping for so...

Re: Duet setup - instructions in progress

Jim,
Try the following:

3. If you print with hot end temperatures above 260C then you will need to add a M143 command in config.g, for example M143 S280 will increase the temperature limit to 280C.

Re: Duet Mount

I just installed this today, and it fits great. Thanks for the great design.

I thought I'd point out that you have to take off the bottom of the printer to remove the melamine bracket feet and install the plastic rails. At least, I couldn't see any other way to do it.

Hey Nebbian. I just looked at your link to Thingiverse. It looks like you are using the exact same extruder that I am, but that you added some sort of filament guide to it. I see something black that looks to be screwed below the hobbed gear and bearing. Is that something you designed? If so, would ...

Your assembly manual wouldn't say where the motors came from. You'd have to look at the motors. There is a sticker on the back that should let you know. I had overheating issues on my extruder motor until I read this thread:

Re: Strange sizing in x and y directions

I'm working on changing out a few parts to see if it gets fixed. I have adjusted the extrusion width previously, but I think that it should not vary in the x and y directions unless it is moving at a different speed due to thinking it is moving a longer or shorter distance than it is moving.

I'm definitely getting better adhesion with ABS at 60C than I ever got with 90C and glue stick or hair spray. It still doesn't appear to be quite enough to hold down larger prints.
