Re: Orion Calibration Issues in Two Towers

After running the wizard and LCD Calibration I got a good print on the bare glass (no hairspray) there was still a bit of loose filament around the back but with no extra help it seemed acceptable. I hit the bare glass with some hairspray and did another print, this time it was as close to perfect a...

Re: Orion Calibration Issues in Two Towers

After running the Calibration routine from the LCD it is much better but not quite perfect.

I'll run the wizard again and calibration from lcd again and see if it fixes the last bit of leveling.

Re: Orion Calibration Issues in Two Towers

Thanks for the link I didn't know it even existed until you mentioned it. That said. I tried the suggested fixed and it made things 100x worse! Now it crashes into the back then rises slightly towards the left like it's on a tilted bed. Whatever the fix was it seems like it somehow multiplied it. Fr...

Orion Calibration Issues in Two Towers

I ran the calibration from LCD menu, it ran fine without any overly aggressive acceleration issues. The round bed leveling file printed and stuck well near the front (lcd) but the back towers the filament did not stick well to the bed. Since it is using the calibration and leveling itself I'm not su...

Isn't that what the LCD Menu "Set Z Height" does? I tried that a few times to no avail.

Re: Orion will not home

I'm having this issue right now and it was because I accidentally pressed on the "Set Z Height" menu item. I have tried, what I thought would correct it, but it still only goes DOWN when I press Home. I would expect it to go UP when I ask it to home until it hits each of the switches. What...

Carefully with a sharp scraper. See my V3 thread or blog about the tools I use and how I modify the SeeMeCNC scraper. Sharpen the edge as I show and then slowly and carefully scrape.

Try it using the g-code script and not through the front panel. g. I do have the g-code script and even the modified version mhackney posted to turn off the HE and that works great. But the new firmware (currently in dev) is supposed, AFAIK, to have better calibration. I've also seen PDaddy saying ...

Re: FABLAM !!

How do you remove single layer print fails on the FABLAM surface if you can't use a scraper?

Or areas that only have bits and pieces of material from a build that are stubborn and not easily removed without some force?
