Re: Screaming Demon

If yours was one of the first batches of Artemis (that have the FSR in the base) make sure you have the most current firmware... the original firmware gave all sorts of odd issues.

Re: 5" touch screen for upgraded V3 machine

I would like to reposition the 5" display on my Artemis, are there any extension cables readily available (6 or 12" would work for me... I'd need both cables)

Thanks

Re: First Probe Error and shutdown

Is the printer still attached to the computer with the USB cable?
If so, disconnect the cable from the printer and do the probe strictly wirelessly.

Re: Where are all of the detailed Artemis reviews?

The Artemis is a great printer. I am very impressed with the build quality, feature set, quietness, and the quality of the prints it produces.
I hope the dual extruder option becomes available soon.

Re: Artemis - Build Notes

That's a nice little omega cable clip you've got there. However, I don't recall any Artemis cables that need taming. Am I missing something?

Re: First homing: horrible grinding sounds

First thing I noticed in your video... the USB cable is connected to the Artemis. Is it also connected to the computer? If so, it should not be... that caused grief for me when doing the first probe... it kept timing out. So remove the USB cable entirely once in Duet, then refresh the Duet web page....

Re: The Artemis arrives in NJ

Adarcher, The fix for my fluttering was to replace the 4 wires that extended the extruder's wires to the plug that goes to the board, I don't know why this worked, as the original solder joints looked good, and when I plugged my new stepper into the old extension wires, it too fluttered. Now that I ...

Re: The Artemis arrives in NJ

Considering that I replaced the stock solder joints on the extension cabling with new solder joints, I don't think that's it.
I didn't see anything particularly problematic with the extensions, other than they are pretty thin.

Re: The Artemis arrives in NJ

I never had a moment of doubt that we'd get this up and running (and find out what was going on).
The debugging was a bit tedious, but the printer is outstanding, so worth the additional effort.

Re: The Artemis arrives in NJ

Well, it looks like it is a bad stepper motor. Let's see if a replacement fixes the issue.

Re: The Artemis arrives in NJ

DC42, The hot end is fine... I can turn the extruder knob (when the stepper is disabled) and feed filament through the hot end without incident. However, all of my testing of the extruder problem has been with no filament in the extruder. My most recent test: I just removed the X axis wire connector...

A few shots of my board, perhaps someone can spot a problem with the wiring and suggest a fix or something to try.

At the connector, I measured resistance... across pins 1 and 2 1.5 ohms. The same across pins 3 and 4.

Re: The Artemis arrives in NJ

Here is what I tried next. I swapped the connections for the X and E0 steppers. Then in Duet, I homed the printer, and the extruder motor started turning in a retraction direction. I manually clicked the X axis end stop to stop the extruder, and let the other arms home naturally. After all the arms ...

Re: The Artemis arrives in NJ

Here is what I tried: I disconnected the x-axis stepper and placed the extruder stepper connector onto the x axis terminal I then homed the printer. The stepper motor spun properly, and obviously would continue to spin because there is no endstop being engaged. So, at least we know that the motor ca...

Re: The Artemis arrives in NJ

The manual has been corrected, the instructions now call for the red wire to go on pin 1, so now the text and photos are in sync. The red wire picks up 5v from the expansion connector.

--The build is complete, but it won't extrude . I can manually extrude by turning the knob when the hot end is up to temp, but the extruder motor won't turn... it just "flutters". We checked for continuity across the extruder coils, so that seems fine. Any thoughts are appreciated. --Also ...

Re: The Artemis arrives in NJ

Words I never thought I'd ever post on a public forum:

"I found the lubricant!"

It is packed in with the back of aluminum ball joints, but the lubricant is white in a clear packet, and quite invisible when the bag of ball joints is on top of the white packing list.

Re: The Artemis arrives in NJ

Ah, I see... my bottom plate is held on with screws.
It looks like subsequent builds use the plastic rivets instead.
I will be quite gentle when using the screws... yes, yes, hand tool only!
