Re: Lots of issues with PETG

I wish I could help you out, but I've never printed with PETG before. I have heard that it can be quite stringy. You might want to check into the SeeMeCNC Facebook group (yech!) as there might be someone there that can help out with PETG.

Re: How do I do dual extrusion??? (Artemis 300)

Not all Artemis 300s were shipped with the Y adapter. The 2nd extruder used to be an option. I'm not sure when it became the default.

Re: Max V2 - Printing Above Bed

The v3.2 profiles are for duet-equipped machines, so you'll likely have some tweaking to do. Pay close attention to the start & end gcode in the profile, it will probably do things you don't want. (like over-retract or feed the filament)

Now try with 4.6. You don't know which fixed the issue. ;) (My bet is on the bed surface. :D )

Re: Max V2 - Printing Above Bed

If you can, upgrade to a Duet3D and an SE300 or a Duet Smart Effector. It'll blow your mind. ;)

Re: How do I do dual extrusion??? (Artemis 300)

The filament load script knows to stop short of the split feeder on load. In order for it to properly feed when a print begins, you need to use the current dual extrusion configuration for Cura that's on the SeeMeCNC git repository.

Re: Max V2 - Printing Above Bed

If you're trying to use MatterControl's "calibration" feature, that's probably your issue. I've never known an instance of it working for deltas. I'd give Cura a shot. An HE280 wouldn't be a bad upgrade either.

Re: Print Head falls down when off

Make sure that the end gcode in Cura (or whatever slicer you're using) isn't issuing an M84 command. That powers off the motors.

What brand of PETG are you using? Is it old?

You have no problems with PLA on the same machine?

Re: Max V2 - Printing Above Bed

Is the gap universally low around the perimeter? If so, your horizontal radius might be off and the hot end is moving in a convex arc.

Re: Enable Auto-Sleep parks print head on part

"sleep" turns off the motors. When the motors are turned off in a well tuned delta, the weight of the effector platform can cause it to slide to the bottom of the machine because the motors are no longer locked. Did you add a "sleep.g" file to your configuration? As far as I know, the Duet3D depends...

Re: infill and walls not connecting

It's not an arm length issue - that would result in an overall dimension problem. The first thing I notice is that you may be printing too hot - knock it back by 5C or so and see if you get a better result. It won't fix the perimeter/infill issue, but you'll end up with a less "melted" looking part....

Re: Stuck at configuration in V4 build. Anybody done this before?

Make sure you're talking to the right COM port in YAT. With YAT, "connected" basically means that it can talk to the selected port, not that it's connected to something VIA that serial port. Note that if you're trying this on a "work" network, the IT folks may have it configured to not permit unknow...

You can use epoxy if you're very careful to keep it straight and keep it out of the threads.

Re: Stuck at configuration in V4 build. Anybody done this before?

I wonder if YAT isn't actually talking to the Duet. Try sending "M20". That command should list all the files that are in the root directory of the SD card.

Re: Stuck at configuration in V4 build. Anybody done this before?

So basically it's telling you that it can't "hear" a WiFi network. Can you move the machine a bit farther away from the access point? (I know, sounds weird, but might work.) What brand/type of access point do you have? Is it configured to broadcast its SSID?
