Re: Duet WiFi with E3V6 dragging on plate

Well, I tried the mesh-bed compensation yesterday, that seemed to do the trick! I had never bothered before because it seemed unnecessary, just to get a visual heightmap of the bed. After playing with it, I realized that the g31 affects the mesh compensation results, which affects (after including G...

Re: Duet WiFi with E3V6 dragging on plate

Thank you gene, how about this: "...overridden by the m500 auto-calibration [override] command."

You remind me of a kid in my high school who always wore sweatpants just so he'd never get caught with his fly down. That guy was a genius too.

Re: Duet WiFi with E3V6 dragging on plate

I got my config m665 and m666 from running the auto-calibration and inputting the results. But it shouldn't matter, they get overridden by the m500 auto-calibration command. I just can't get the g31 z adjust to work. I can circumvent the issue by adjusting in my slicer, but I'd prefer it to work the...

Re: Constant jamming with an e3d V6

Sounds to me like you're over retracting... You print the first layer, and it retracts when it starts the next layer. Too much and the melted filament in the block gets stuck in the cooling chamber.

I can never go over 4mm. Try lowering your retraction to 3-4mm, and use wipe and coast.

I retried it again using Z-.4 , which was determined using the S3D workaround. I'm still dragging on the plate. I checked the console, this is what I got:

Re: Keep needing higher and higher temp settings. Max V2

Personally, I had the same issues whenever I retracted more than 4mm...the filament would get clogged inside the v6. I think the reason you had to increase the temp was to melt the filament inside the cooling chamber...I'm surprised you didn't burn your filament. Check your hotend fan to make sure i...

Sorry to hear you're giving up. Did you try lowering the retraction? Try turning it off altogether. Could it be the hotend's not getting hot enough?

In my experience, these are the ways my hotend would jam: 1. if the retraction setting was too high, the filament would solidify thickly at the top of the hotend (like a mushroom) between the ptfe tube and the passage in the hotend 2. The hotend got too hot and burned the filament in the nozzle or i...

It looks like you're over-extruding on some layers. The way it over-extrudes on certain layers tells me it's likely a software issue; if it's not a setting, then mattercontrol itself. If you're desperate to stay with mattercontrol, I'd recommend checking "print outer layers first" (on the ...
