Re: Firmware error every time I start printing on the machine

Well THAT is weird. Nobody else has reported that issue, so you might want to post on the duet3D forum (https://forum.duet3d.com/) and see if one of the wizards over there can help. The author of the firmware is very active there (dc42).

Re: Filament feeding slows down/stop mid print then resumes

That's what is called "filament starvation". That typically happens when the extruder skips. Skipping happens if you're printing too fast for the extrusion temperature. What speed/temp/material are you running? If you've got crud in the gear teeth and you're not running crap filament, you may be run...

Re: Firmware error every time I start printing on the machine

Right after the M666 command, add this: M208 X800 Y800 Z800; Set max limits. The homedelta.g script runs all three axes up to 780mm. The value is purposefully much higher than the actual travel available to make sure the limit switches are hit. Adding that M208 command should prevent the error messa...

What version of the firmware is on your Artemis? Can you post your config.g in a reply? I'm curious to see what the M208 setting is.

Re: Upgrading my V2?

The 0.9 degree stepper motors are and improvement, yes. You get smoother motion - they're twice the "resolution" of the 1.8 degree stepper motors. I don't know if SeeMeCNC still sells the melamine parts needed to mount the 2nd extruder, but you might want to ask. You might also ask to see if they've...

Is the bed powered up during the probing by chance? If not, I'd email [email protected] - I'm out of sane guesses at this point. ;)

Re: Auto Level Issues.

The video is a huge help, thanks! What you're seeing isn't really a "skip" The effector platform is being stopped by the nozzle and it's not detecting the "hit" until the platform is over-driven and it strikes the bed, triggering the sensor. I would carefully clean the nozzle to make sure there's no...

Re: Issues printing geometries correctly

The probing only works if you've got an HE280 hot end with the accel. probe on it.

What style of carriages do you have on the Orion? Are they laser cut Melamine, or injection molded plastic?

Re: Upgrading my V2?

It's a small circuit difference - I'd order the 1.4. The steel balls require a small amount of lube, while the delrin ones don't. You can get a Duet3D from Filastruder I think. They're the US distributor for Duet3D. Here's a link to the Duet2 WiFi: https://www.filastruder.com/collections/electronics...

There's a number of things you can do Jeremy. As with most things, it boils down to how much money you want to spend in the process. :D For a start, you can upgrade to an HE280 hot end. Since it uses a heater cartridge instead of a pair of RTV-packed resistors, it's going to be more consistent and r...

Re: Screen will not display

The F3 fuse controls the extruder heater & fan outputs, F2 controls the electronics. Due to the board design, they can't be tested while installed - you'll get a good result if the fuse is blown.

Re: Cura 4.5 Profiles

The line you identified is there to back the filament out of the Y splitter on dual-extrusion machines. You can comment it out by sticking a ";" in front of it.

Re: Lots of issues with PETG

It could also be a thunk - watch the knob on the EZR to see if it does an uncommanded reverse. The bowden tube will twitch and you'll hear a "bump" sound. I'd also check to see if the gear teeth on the EZR are filled with plastic. If you're using a 0.5 nozzle, slice a cube @ 215C and attach the gcod...

Re: Lots of issues with PETG

Your extruder is either skipping or you've got a partial jam in the nozzle. It might be a bad slicer setting, but I've never seen a slicer setting do that.

For the top image, you've got too few top layers. For a .20 layer height, you want a minimum of 3 to 5 layers. For the bottom image, I suspect you're hearing a "clicking" noise when it prints, right? The "rot" you see is classic underextrusion due to either a blockage (unlikely in this case) or prin...

Re: Bed won't heat

Heating & cooling cycles can cause the compression terminals to loosen over time. That's what cause the terminal block to cook. Checking & tightening these periodically will avoid this. A bootlace crimp connector end can help too.
