Color change command

by SubaruB4RSK

I understand M600 is the command to change filament however is M600 all I need to do? What's different about it printing from USB vs SD card? I'm getting frustrated I'm wasted half a 1 KG spool of red PLA and it keeps doing something stupuid in S3D like when it should just start from where the last layer is it goes well above 230 mm on my A8 and grinds..

At this point I don't know if I should try to do it from the SD card and put in the M600 command someplace?

Help Bed Levelling

by ukdjteezer

Hi all, having trouble levelling my bed. I do it the normal way as I've always done bit of a4 just slightly snagging on the bed, so then i press "auto home"
disable steppers and just give it a quick check and it's all out again. Can anyone help me with this problem as I'm at a loss as to why this is happening and what to do to fix it. Is it a firmware problem,

specs are a standard anet a8 with most of the upgrades, the printer is screwed to a sheet of ply for stability, checked all screws for tightness.

Any ideas ?

Running a 10k thermistor on the heat bed input?

by Revamped_Outdoors

I'm working on a project where I need a waterproof thermistor. It seems in the US for a reasonable price (waterproof) all I can source is a 10K thermistor. I know I should know this, but for some reason it slips my mind. Is there any issues with running a 10K on the heat bed input? I would flash to the newest version of Marlin on the board and I noticed that it says no go on the 10K says not for the hot end, but what about the heated bed connection? I'm sure I'm missing something. I'm sure there's somebody that will set me straight in a few minutes.

File edit

by SubaruB4RSK

I’m trying to print a flag which has 4 colors but the last color has to be gold I was wondering how or if it’s possible to edit the file so it would be one of the last parts to print? I’m not sure if this is in the right place
