stutter while moving

Hi, looking for anecdotal confirmation here. I'm still working through shifting in my prints (had to put my printer away for a long while and brought it out and the shifting is worse than ever). And one thing I'm looking at is slipping belts or skipped steps. When I hook up mattercontrol (since I'm ...

Re: HE280 with ramps

I've also tried getting a Ramps going with a SeemeCNC Rostock. I halted at needing multiple fan controls. I actually made up a simple on/off fan control board that I'll hook upto the servo pins (+ the 12V pin used for the board fan). I guess people didn't use multiple fans back in the days of using...

Re: Duet Wifi

The first obvious feature in all the duet boards is that they have non-segmented moves, meaning motion is continuously calculated, so you can achieve something much closer to an actual circle (As the motors have distinct steps, it isn't perfect, but it is below human resolution for the most part). ...

I don't remember myself! What do you want to see or know? Just the process--"method to your madness". You did some explaining on how you setup the supports to get good results. I've recently gotten fed up with slicer supports myself and the few times I've tried to make supports on my own ...

I realize I sounded negative there. This really is a cool thing they are doing. I've got some of my own models that could use this in the future... after I fix my sulking baby of a printer--or is that me I'm talking about?

Re: New Slic3r Prusa Edition (rocks)

I continue to use cura because it's much more forgiving on model files that "have errors". I loaded a few into this new version of slic3r and every single one had sections missing--and these sections are not easy to "fix" because of the way the modeler combined objects.

Re: Skin separated from fill.

If you use the new cura (2.4 beta) you can check the extra alternate wall, which alternates an extra perimeter every other layer to help attach the infill. I've found it helps make much stronger parts.

Re: RostockMax V2 Stopper switch malfunction?

Try the eeprom reset like Dale mentioned. I've had the same issue recently because I was trying new firmwares and the eeprom values got corrupted. I don't have the code in front of me now, but if the endstop offset (or other homing distance) is negative, it might be homing and then trying to move to...

Re: First few layers linearly shift

Stepperdrivers can get very hot when they get overcurrent. A sink can help preventing overheat. But in reality, if the steppers on your rambo cannot be touched without burning your finger, you have too much current on the motors. That does not explain however, why only the lower layers would shift....

Re: First few layers linearly shift

OK. I'm going to call this mostly solved. Now only the first layer is only ever-so-slightly off. I was sitting here watching it fail yet again while sitting next to an old ramps board. The steppers have heat sinks on them. My rambo doesn't. It never did. For giggles I stopped the print, added some s...

I haven't fully given up yet. I'm either slipping on the carriage or skipping steps. I took everything apart and looked at the bearings on the Y tower. They all didn't spin as nice as some random left overs I had laying around, so I replaced them. No change. I did notice that my belts are favoring o...

Re: First few layers linearly shift

It does. Try bumping up your steps/mm value by 1% and see what happens. Lol, that got my hopes up. Forgot what that felt like :P It got rid of the zipzag of the probe points, but didn't fix my overall problem. Ah well. My motors look fine. My belts look fine. The carriages have a little dust in the...

Do you know the reasoning behind that? I've got some mech-engineering in me, so I'm curious. I'll try to find the time tonight or tomorrow night to try this.

Nevermind. Still shifts the first few layers in the -X direction but only on the -X side of the model.
