Looks good!

Share some more when you can. It's always fun to see what people are using these printers for.

Re: adarcher's build/troubleshooting

It's actually not the default rate, but the max rate. Again, to get around something dumb that Cura does. g. Yeah, I'm getting fed up with Cura actually. I want something that won't hop around inside the print doing little dots of plastic to fill holes that shouldn't have been there at the start.

Re: Enable strain gauge Z probe?

I'm using those 4 spare probe wires. I don't remember if they came naked or in the connector, but there were bundled up there already in a connector--plugged it in and blam-o, first try worked. Since then, I've only hit the max probe count for a single point once, and it was because I left a failed ...

Re: Enable strain gauge Z probe?

I went ahead and played with this a bit ago. I unplugged the FSR cable Plugged in the "tucked away" probe cable Found some small "washers" to clamp the heat spreader to the metal frame under the bed clips Tightened it up nicely Changed over to the probe config.g settings and adde...

Re: adarcher's build/troubleshooting

The default max speed isn't set for E as far as I know. The only *explicit* default movement rate is set for the Z axis, and that's done in the pre & post gcode because of something dumb that Cura does. g. Since I changed it, I had to go look it up. It's at 30000 in the github repo (both FSR an...

Re: adarcher's build/troubleshooting

Yup, but something else is different in the 1.21 firmware because without changing from stock anything, the XYZ motors create that highpitch noise and don't move--that's what I was talking about, the extruder is what reminded me of what could be the issue. The culprit was the "G0 Z5 F30000;&qu...

Re: Enable strain gauge Z probe?

Any news on this?

I see the repo has the strain gauge set as default now...

I'll start looking at the differences in the construction docs, I know I've already got the wires up at the top, just don't know where to connect them.

Probably need to make harder mounts for the bed as well.

Re: Mods.. (The Good, The Bad, The Ugly)

Why wouldn't you use the Capricorn inside the hot end? Are you having to print slower with the Titan because of the weight from the direct drive. Have you seen the Nimble yet. They're out of stock but I want one for my v3. The ir probe is not nearly as accurate as the fsr. Plus they're a pain to us...

Hah. The universe doesn't want me to be happy with this printer... Got the pulley back on--was a lot easier than I initially feared now that I looked at the printer in proper light. I concede I was much too hasty before on dissing the belt tensioning. Though, I am a bit frustrated with not getting m...

Re: Duet Tuning.

I've got those crimpers too, was finally able to do some 1mm pins at work the other day. Even then, I decided my hands are too shaky now a days and I just buy pre-crimped wires from digikey in bulk if I've got more than just a few to do.

Post your build if you want. It should go together easily. I had one of the first ones and had minor issues, the support is top notch.

Re: adarcher's build/troubleshooting

My eyes were playing with me then. There is a hole under the pulley and when I tried pushing the fully loosened injection molded piece down, it would just pivot over the hole--I guess I'm just not as strong as I thought I was. I'll need a tensioning bolt or something.

Currently have the machine offline again. Was able to squeeze out some prints for the the FB group Eiffel Tower project though.

You could always download the configuration files and the bed configuration file and compare them. I find my calibration results are identical between the FSR probing on the Artemis and my v3 using the Duet board and accelerometer. About .02 sometimes .015. I'd like to move away from the frs becaus...

I tend to see these layer seams disappear when I've got retraction settings setup correctly.

Also, check your coasting settings in cura.

I'll make you a deal - when *I* know how it's done, *you'll* know how it's done. ;) The v1.1 SE300 PCB has the strain gauge on it and the wiring is in the harness, but I haven't had time to chase down the details beyond that.

Saw on the new listing for the V3.2 that it's using the strain gauges now.

Are the Artemis effector's going to have that enabled as well?

Phew, ok. I'm in a "workable" but not "good" state now I think. Deviation is now .1 -- .09 at 60C and .03 -- .02 at room temp. Is that reasonable? I hope not. I'd like it to be better at temp. I'm not sure how to tighten up the FSRs... will need some help. I didn't redo the cork ...
