Re: Anyone using Octoprint to control smoothie?

I sure am, its printing right now. I have disabled lcd panel and ethernet on the smoothie because its all handled by the pi. I have no issues using its terminal to run your fw.

Re: Sloppy FINE Prints, 0.1mm Layer Height

its going to be trial and error at .1 layer heights, slow your printer down a bit and tweak the nozzle temps

Re: Drag knife.

Yes, that can work with straight lines, the problem is with curves. Just like on a vehicle the rear wheels never QUITE follow the front wheels on curves, they always "short track". The tighter the curve the more pronounced the effect. With long trailers you drive the trailer more than you...

Re: Drag knife.

if you are worried about drag offsets with software, im sure you can manually drag the lines past the intersection of issue and do a seperate lead in/out for each line segment.

doesnt seem like this guy is having any need or issues with.

Re: Help with Power Supply Wire Cutting

yellow is 12v, red is 5v, orange is 3.3v all in DC. if you only need 2 yellow/black i would cut them from 4 in your first picture, and leave the remaining wires safely insulated in the connector.

Re: Powering Raspberry Pi 2 with existing modular Power supp

Also with the PI and a resource called wiringPi you can control the power of the 12vdc by connecting the green wire to a GPIO and sending it to ground. I have a relay looked to some GPIO and thats how i control my 24vdc bed supply so it turns on using event hooks (albeit with octoprint not astro but...

Re: Question.

so long as the print is still stuck to the bed, s3d handles this well. just measure the height of the print... or use its own features to figure out what layer to start at.. then adjust your "process" to adjust start height.

Re: Heuristic (AI) calibration for delta printers on Smoothi

I was talking to dc42, author of the Duet fork with delta calibration, a few months back. He noted that my firmware uses the mean (average) of all deviations as the evaluation metric, whereas his uses RMS (root mean squared) as the eval metric. I decided to give Smoothie the ability to switch betwe...

Re: Need help with Octoprint

back in the day when i was running RAMBo, i think i had to drop connection down to 9600 first, then work my way up. you want to ensure that all your main components are at least working together at first (who cares about speed at this point). Start back at square one, direct connect your printer to ...
