What is causing printer to slowdown in corners

by yashrg

Hi, I have noticed that on my Ender 3, when I am printing something that spans the entire area of the bed, the speed slows down considerably in the corner and the printer makes unusual sounds. What could be causing this to happen? I even experience it on the corner that is lower than the others. So it doesnt seem that it is because the nozzle is scraping against the build plate. Has anyone else experienced something like this?

Here's a link to a short video I filmed. https://www.dropbox.com/s/bk15n7zoob6s2l7/IMG_0520.MOV?dl=0

BLtouch on Ender 3

by falconer85

Hi, Someone who has added BLtouch on Ender 3? I've followed this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocAeZRPVusw&t=7s

but TH3D_UFW_U1.R18 firmware is a bit more different than a TH3D_UFW_U1.R2.6

but I've followed what he shows but I get the following error message when I press "verify"
"sketch \ Configuration_backend.h: 1804: 19: note: in expansion of macro" Y_BED_SIZE '


sketch \ Conditionals_post.h: 39: 23: note: in expansion of macro 'Y_MAX_POS'

What is the little spring for?

by Cathprotech

So, in the box of with my Ender 3 were a few tools, tie-wraps etc, but one thing I don't have a clue what its for.
Its a very small, thin spring about 30mm long with one end straight about 75mm.
Does anyone else have one and does anyone know what its for?

New Creality Ender-3 - Sticky rollers on head movement

by Cathprotech

Hi all,

Had my Ender-3 just under 2 weeks. I followed all instructions for assembly and checked everything ran smooth on the rollers.

After just 2 days, when I was pushing the print head with my finger for levelling the bed, I noticed there are kind of notches in the rollers.

I cannot see them or even feel them with my finger, but when pushing the head along (steppers disabled), there are distinct stops.

I have uploaded a video here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2XEsGmfneZg), this may explain better.

Does anyone have any idea what is causing this and is there a cure.
