I never got that thing printing very well, it was a pain to configure and use that config file, and the modified config, all the m-codes to do everything. I'm back to running Repetier server on my Banana Pro, I'll see how it goes! Hot end and heated bed all calibrated. no more bouncing bed due to the poorly tuned PID, its dialed in such that it takes ~30 seconds to settle after a 3-4 minute warm up to 90C.
So far layers are stacking up nicely and laying down nicely. I was getting symptoms of loose belts and all kinds of other things bugging me. Now its all running quite nice. DRV8825's on 32 microsteps make very little noise! I have some RAPS128 drivers coming, 128 microsteps are supposed to make it dead quiet - now to quiet down my power supply fan and I'll be happy!
What were your PID settings afterwards? I can't seem to figure mine out. It's worse with the aluminium heat spreader on and never settles back down.
I even cut a new snowflake hoping that would help with more mounting holes (plus mine was warped). No go on that.
room temp to 100c = .005" lift at the center.
