Re: Filament runout sensor kills printing -- fixed

Wow! You have had a bad time with this. I haven't tried clear filament, so thanks for the heads up. I have a Palette+ for sale that I never used except to set it up. I was going to use it to print support and then I realized I can use the same filament I am printing my object with to do support. Dop...

Re: Filament runout sensor kills printing -- fixed

John, The path was enlarged as well as chamfered using the tool you had mentioned. Some filaments go though fine, but the stiff ones come off the reel with curvature and do not go through the long restrictive path of the sensor. Enlarging, not chamfer, is what helped the most for me, but still not ...

Re: Filament runout sensor kills printing -- fixed

AJM, Did you chamfer the entrance to the filament hole? Enlarging it will not help. Any 1.75 filament I put through mine slides easily without more than a very small -- insignificant -- friction. Secondly, I would not put bent filament through my machine. That is just asking for trouble at various s...

Re: Build plate lowering on stop

Awesome! Thank you JetGuy. I tried the new, ah, position setting method of entering length to move (needs a name if it hasn't got one). I like that a lot.

Build plate lowering on stop

Is there a way to keep the build plate from lowering so far on a stop command from RaiseTouch? This is a relatively new addition to the stop actions, and drives me a bit crazy when I realize that I have done something wrong just as the print is starting. I understand it needs to go through the compl...

Re: LIN_ADVANCE = better extrusion control

I tried to install the 1.1.9ABH for N2 dual and the message, "Updating Firmware" does not go away. On reboot, an error happens but I can get to the Safe Boot option. I'll use that to revert firmware.

Re: LIN_ADVANCE = better extrusion control

Very cool and thank you. Unfortunately, I have not learned how to use the programming and compiling environment. If you have the time, would you compile the files?

Hi ABH. No, I saw it with 1.1.8ABH, but not the factory files.

Re: LIN_ADVANCE = better extrusion control

I am a little confused on the sequence. I'll start at the beginning to show what I'm thinking: 1) Install the 1.1.9ABH 2) Run PID tuning 3) Run a small "print job" to send M500 to write changed byte to EEPROM 4) Run a print job, but no need to send any M5?? codes. No need to PID tune again...

Re: LIN_ADVANCE = better extrusion control

I get it. That explains the situation. Thank you JetGuy. So what I need to do is simply re-tune the PID setting and store to EEPROM with M502. Then, on load, evoke M500 to load settings from EEPROM.

Re: LIN_ADVANCE = better extrusion control

Thank you firesped. The senario you cover fits the description of my problem well enough to suspect that you have nailed the problem. I will reconfigure the PID. However, one sticking point is this: by restoring the factory firmware the error code does not come back. Have you any explanation for that?

Re: LIN_ADVANCE = better extrusion control

I will do this when I load the latest version -- if it happens with it. I would typically see the error randomly. In other words I could do whole print, and then set up the next print without rebooting and the error shows. Occasionally it shows up when first starting up after setting the temperature...

Re: Filament Run-out Sensor Install Problem

As I wrote before. This is how to fix it. I want to put paid to having to print a new filament cover. It doesn't fix the source of the problem. The source of the problem is simply that the holes that the filament enters are not chamfered. That's it. The edges are so sharp there that the filament ha...

Re: LIN_ADVANCE = better extrusion control

ABH, a quick check on this please. Ever since I installed the last version of your firmware mods for my N2 dual, I had been getting the following error code below. I don't get it at all with the factory firmware. (I run the filament runout sensor version.) Does your latest version fix the problem? I...

Re: Grease ?

Before JetGuy told us not to use grease or oil on the graphite bearings, I was using grease and that did not cause any noises - just a sticky carriage. I put about 2 drops of 10w on those rods and that may have helped dissolve some grease that was still in the graphite bearings. The z-axis screws ru...
