Re: Some PID Tuning Quirkiness

DC42 covered your PID tuning ^

I run a retract length of 3.2mm on a stock SE300 hot end. I wouldn't go much over that. Maybe as high as 3.5, but even that's pushing it on a retract heavy print.

Re: PCB Board Rev 6a

The probe pin locations are not used.

The LED pins are always on hooked to the main power for the hot end (nom 12v always on).

The three part fans are wired in parallel with each other.

The Heatsink fan is wired to the hot end main power (always on)

Re: Some PID Tuning Quirkiness

After you run a PID tune, it shuts off the heater. You have to manually turn it back on (or restart the printer) before it'll send power to it again. The Reprap firmware PID tune is mostly for the initial heatup and making sure it doesn't overshoot too far when it's coming up to temperature. Running...

Re: Where are all of the detailed Artemis reviews?

I'll chime in on flexibles. We printed all the flexible cable covers that ship on the Artemis with the Artemis we've got in the office. We've printed a bunch of stuff with the Sainsmart TPU with no problem. Production is still ramping up and the 4 week lead time still scares off some sales, but so f...

Re: Delta Calibration Wizard now online

The "Calculate new values" box is a javascript link. It won't work unless you've filled in all the boxes properly. Also, make sure you don't have an add or script blocker installed on your browser that's preventing the javascript from running.

Re: Auto calibration g29 sometimes crashing into bed

Depends on where in your starting gcode it is. You can't run either of the heaters when you're using the probe as the pwm signals interfere with it a lot. I'm guessing at least one of the heaters is active when you're probing. Can you post your starting gcode?

Re: Hot or Cold Auto-Calibration

I'm late to the party with this answer, but I did a bunch of testing and didn't find any significant amount of difference between hot and cold calibration.

Re: Calibration Tower Probe Crash

What version of the firmware (what date, actually) are you running? If you're not running the latest, I'd clear the EEProm and update before anything else. Assuming that doesn't fix it or you're already on the latest version, can you post the log from the terminal when it's doing this?

Re: Octopi Changing to my second extruder on a single color print

On a 32 bit board you won't be running Repetier. Running DC42's Reprap on a Duet has no problem doing dual extrusion.

Afraid not - there's just not enough memory on an 8 bit board to do all the things Repetier is doing.

Re: End stop adjustment?

Yup. It gets to do a bunch of math. If your first layer is looking good, stop there. If you've got high/low spots you want to iron out, you can make it go away with some more math, just follow the instructions here: https://www.seemecnc.com/pages/delta-calibration-wizard

Re: End stop adjustment?

If you've got a V3, you don't need to adjust the endstop screws - the automatic calibration takes care of all that. It'll tell you if they are too far out of whack and needs to be manually adjusted.

Re: Ros tock V3 heated bed not getting hot enough

Brian,

You can safely crank that voltage up to 14V. That'll give the bed more power to play with and might get you up to 100 degrees. I'd try that before anything else.

First batch of Artemis is out the door.

We just finished shipping the first batch of Artemis, including the first RTP! Now we get to build up the parts and pieces to go for the next round. Guess I'd better finish the setup manual today before everyone starts building... it doesn't take much time to slap one together.
