Creality Endor 5 Pro printer does not print out the openings

by carllyons

Hi. My new Creality Endor 5 Pro printer does not print out the holes in the "disk.stl" file converted to gcode file. This is a cycloid gear that is supposed to have holes.

What printer settings do I need to change?
The designer used a different 3DP than Creality, but since the 3DP prints gcode this should not matter.

It has Marlin firmware.

Thank you.

Layer displacement

by Yacon

I am printing some large pieces, using 0.8mm nozzle. On the first attempt, a layer displacement appeared after 8 hours, so I stopped the printing.
In the second attempt the same displacement appeared, in the same direction, and in the same layer.
I assume that it can't be a temperature issue of the electronics, because it would be too much of a coincidence that it always happens in the same place.
I printed a different model and it also happened to me, at a different layer height, but 9 hours after starting.
What could be the cause?

Ender 3 pro (stock) with bl touch doesn't stop at Z-home

by JvPutte

I just installed a touch 3d sensor (a clone) and flashed my stock 1.1.6 board with the latest official firmware for the bl touch (https://forums.creality3dofficial.com/download/ender-series/ender-3-pro/). When the printer powers up, everything seems fine, the probe lights up, the sensor moves out & in a couple of times. When I then hit "home axes" all seems fine, but the printer doesn't response to the sensor hitting z-home, meaning it will keep on running and running, trying to go through the hotplate.

I have checked the black & white wires, and reversed them, but there is no difference.

I have also tried installing the latest vanilla firmware, it flashes fine, but the printer never boots past the marlin logo for some reason.

I'm an absolute noob when it comes to compiling marlin firmware, so I have no clue how to move forward from here/trouble shoot the issue.

So am looking for some expert help fixing this issue, if there is any additional information i should post to be able to fix this issue, let me know!

4.2.7/bltouch - auto home ends at probe offset location

by lenabanana

Desperate for some help. I actually have an ender5 but this group is more active. I recently upgraded to a 4.2.7 board after frying my 1.1.5 silent board.
Now when I auto home, it moves to X 0, Y 0, then when it goes to do Z, it moves the nozzle to exactly what my nozzle offset is before homing Z. My BL touch is set as my Z min switch.

When I try and probe the 3x3 grid, the probe ends up off the bed for the most left probe point.

Does anyone know why it homes to 0,0 then moves away for Z?
It’s almost like it thinks the probe is on the OTHER side of the nozzle, but if I try reversing the probe offset values from
negative to positive, it won’t home Z at all and instead gives me a “probe off bed” message.

I did reverse the axes, so I have a feeling it’s related to that and the probe offset... but I can’t seem to figure out how to resolve it. Can anyone help?

BLtouch probed 3 points and then turned off

by Meteor_Strike

Hello!
I am trying to install a knockoff 3d touch https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MTF1Q5T/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 on my ender 3 standard using a BigTreeTech SKR Mini E3 V2 https://www.amazon.com/BIGTREETECH-Upgrade-Control-TMC2209-Creality/dp/B0882QGFZR/ref=pd_nav_hcs_rp_2?pd_rd_w=uj4PL&pf_rd_p=b90f7456-95ee-4d98-80f8-00c4e91c331c&pf_rd_r=GHN58P5XY43EY2YMPAFH&pd_rd_r=ffeaba0b-c97f-4269-a851-faf1cc08434b&pd_rd_wg=X3SBC&pd_rd_i=B0882QGFZR&psc=1.

I plugged all 5 pins into the y-probe connector with the JST plugs. I got it working and it lit up and everything. The firmware was set up correctly. I went into config>bltouch>self test and it all worked fine and lit up. Anyways, I go to movement>auto bed level and it starts fine and probes the first 3 points just fine, and then shuts off.
I have checked the wires and tried replacements and neither seem to be broken. One possible cause i see is that the 5v+ pin is not putting out voltage. I held a multimeter to the 5v pin and both left and right ground pins and got a reading of zero for both.
Mabye could someone who has a SKR Mini E3 V2 do the same and tell me if theirs gets voltage? Any info whatsoever would be greatly appreciated

Thanks
