Re: Calibrating Z height always WAY TO HIGH

Calibrating Z height always WAY TO HIGH

I'm at my wits end with this. I have followed the build manual and it seems no matter how high I set my end stop screws it doesn't lower the height of the nozzle nearly enough. I'm talking about being at least am 1/8 inch off the glass. I have researched the forum and tried calibrating it with the g...

Re: PID autotune fail: temp to high

Hello friends. I seem to have forgotten the first rule of troubleshooting when dealing with anything electronic. Turn if off and turn it back on. I ran the PID auto tune this morning and it worked perfectly on the first try. On to calibrating the Z height.

PID autotune fail: temp to high

I finished my build this evening and when I attempted to run the PID autotune for the hot end it climbed up to 220 and then bailed out saying the temp was too high.

Re: Looking for a good book on delta printers

Being a noob to this I also have been looking for information. Have you tried your library? I am fortunate enough to have access to a Cartesian 3D printer at mine. I am going to attend a workshop on Monday.
