Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

Sorry for driving this off the 2130 solution and towards the 2208 solution. https://www.trinamic.com/fileadmin/assets/Products/Eval_Drawings/SilentStepStick-TMC2208_v11.pdf According to this, just set MS1 and MS2 on the mainboard to ON. That sets it in the matching 1/16th mode and set the current on...

Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

Sadly, my favorite local vendor Filastruder doesn't yet have these TMC2208s. Hopefully I can put a bug in his ear and get him to carry some based on this new info. I mean heck, he already carries the others (TMC2100s, TMC2130s, shoddy DRV8825s, and classic A4988s).

Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

Great work ABH and thanks, Trinamic, for weighing in. I have what might be a stupid question. Are the silentstepsticks that Trinamic linked drop-in replacements for the existing Raise3D stepper drivers? According to what I just checked out, drop in from Digikey https://www.digikey.com/product-detai...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

You can use 30 or 40 watt heaters, just PID tune after installing (you should do that anyway since you changed the entire hotend).
30 watt has less margin for higher than 245C temps, but insulated, and properly PID tuned, both should be well capable of 250+ setpoints stable.

Re: not sure what happened here

It's covered in grease from the factory greasing of the rods and then the general sliding movement of the system every print. Since the homing sequence slides down the rod towards it every time you print, it tends to push the grease down the rod toward the ends (far ends of travel) and since this is...

Re: not sure what happened here

Also, hint, move the head left to right to make that shaft rotate. Even though the rod is in line and slides for Y axis, it's the rotating part for X axis.

Re: not sure what happened here

Again, to make this adjustment or fix, you may want to lower the bed as far as possible using the LCD jog menu. This way you can get to it both from the top view you have now and maybe if required from the bottom up. If the bed is too close, that blocks your bottom up access. Then like I said, befor...

Re: not sure what happened here

You will notice as it rotates, it has a pair of setscrews that lock it to the shaft in that position. DSC05016.JPG Further, the actual linear bearing pressed into the block should look like this. The black dots are graphite puck inserts that provide the lubrication. 4pcs-Ultimaker-2-Graphite-Bushing...

Re: not sure what happened here

Further review shows that your collar appears to be loose on the shaft and has moved towards the middle. That just means the setscrews are loose. Notice mine here first very near the pulley again this is the right side front of the printer. My right side locking collar.JPG Now your picture shot show...

Re: not sure what happened here

Took me a second to get the orientation, that's the right hand side of the printer and that's NOT a bearing. it appears that one of the rings that was inside the guide on the right rail of my N2 plus came loose. That is the shaft stop collar locked to the shaft to prevent over travel. Again, that &q...

Re: Z Banding on N1 with V2 Hot End

Also, I feel like we now solved the Z banding, this is now a different issue. The Z axis is not causing the patter you are seeing now, this is an extrusion volume compared to XY movement from what I know, but until I run your file, see if my machine does the same thing or if I can tune things to mak...

Re: Z Banding on N1 with V2 Hot End

I'm right in the middle of a 20 hour print on my N1. Can you do me a favor and share the exact gcode files you printed for those 2 test objects? I want to see if I can reproduce and then tell you what to tune. Also, details on your printer: I assume stock feeder since you just asked about changing o...
