NEW Endstop Offset EEPROM Options

I was poking around the new firmware code and came across this new (new to me at least) Endstop offset option. The option let you ADD electronically (i.e. the value can not be negative) offset to the mechanical zero point of your screw end. Accessible from = EEPROM menu Units of increment = Steps 80...

DIY Onyx Bed Leveling Option

From day one I have always had some issues trying to get my Onyx bed to be level. The great bunch of people at Seemecnc even sent me a new one to try because of my issues. Unfortunately I could never get it just right. No mater what when my bed would heat up the center would rise almost 1mm which wh...

Re: Offer - Botfeeder Filament Review

So how did it print for you? I ordered a roll of silver from botfeeder.ca. I was very happy with boxing and shipping. My average diameter was very tight. I measure the same spot twice, 90° out to each other incase the filament is oval. My roll proved to be very round. Unfortunately my prints have b...

I am in bridging HELL…… LOL

I have tried various settings to get bridging to work on my max and for the most part it has, but my settings have one very annoying result. The perimeters on a bridge are way too fast. The inner extrusions obey the bridge speed setting but the perimeter of the same bridge uses the normal perimeter ...

Re: Do I have a defective build plate?

I just wanted to give you all an update, I spoke with john at SeeMeCNC and they are sending out a replacement plate at no cost. I must say it is nice to deal with a company who is so available to its customers. Happy New Year everyone!

Re: Do I have a defective build plate?

I see what you all are saying about large prints and contractions, but most of my prints are small. In this case the print was less than 4" long.

Is there a seemecnc rep on the forum I should contact about this?

I did measure the filament however, when I did the thin wall test the filament was coming out a bit too much.

Do you think I should double check the filament size and test again?

Re: Strange Print Behavior After Firmware Update

I just wanted to mention the first "better" print was done before I dialed in my extrusion multiplier by doing the thin wall cube test.
After that test I had changed my multiplier to .95.
Also I am still using the .5mm stock nozzle.

I am trying to print a longer filament spool rod since I now need to accommodate a wider roll.
