Micromake D1 - skew/tilted print???

by bfince

Hi folks,
my D1 begin to print objects slightley skewed (i don't know if it is the right expressioni tilted or leaned or smth, as seen on the photos)

No change after all, same stock parts, same stock card, same slicer software, same brand filament

-checked the belt tensions, and adjusted as needed
-check the stepper pulleys if there is a friction
-checked and re-adjusted bed level
-checked first layer adhesion (it is fine, thanks to pei)
-the material is Esun PLA+,
bed temp is 55, extruder temp is 204
-delta arms has dampeners from the beginning so no serious backslash

only things that i found weird is the ball connectors on the carbon arms are loose (due to usage). I ordered new arms just in case but i can not be sure if it is the problem.

help needed

can never get the extrusion right.

by CarsonKT

this problem bothers me a lot.
I set my micro step to 32, steps per mm to 200 and flow rate to 300
the problem is it under extrude a lot, so I calibrate it according to youtube video, I get something at 500ish flow rate.
I run the test again, the situation is like filament doesn't come out quick enough from the nozzle so I can feel the kick back at the gear
the extruder I am using is a mk8 from aliexpress...

does the old v1.2 board has self recovery fuse?

by CarsonKT

I was trying to measure the current to see if the extruder motor has enough current and accidentally short the board I guess.
now only board plugged in use the screen will turn on and I can still flash firmware, but plug into wall outlet gives nothing...
I can see on the board there is a T110 and a T050 fuse, are they recoverable? if so how long it takes to recover?

Micromake D1 upgrades

by bfince


I would like to upgrade the D1 and need your experiences about it, so:

  • the nozzle and hotend is a little wobbly due to the auto level mechanism, got to change the auto leveling with another way (inductive sensor etc) and fix the hot end stable (do you use the standart effector or altered it somehow?)

  • the bed: I have a heated bed ( not genuine hexagon shaped D1 bed but red pcb, a little larger than borosilicate glass) I fix the bed on three spring loaded screws to fine tüne bed leveling and used bull clips to attach the glass on it. Has anybody used flexible printing surfaces? buildtak is perfect but if you stick it on glass, there is no way that you can remove the fine prints without a raft. Any advices?

  • still have some extrusion/retraction problems related to bowden.

So, default Cura gives better print result than Simplify3D?

by CarsonKT

I decide to switch to Simplify3D as it has more configurable options for printing.
somehow the extrusion is a disaster, I change the multiplier from 0.9 to 1 has no improvement at all.
I am printing with speed of 30mm/s for PLA and sometimes even if I lower the speed mul. to 50% and increase the flow mul. to 150% on the printer
the flow is still not consistent.
my printer is set to 32 microsteps and 200 steps per mm, and according to facebook group double the flow rate to 300, but still doesn't print properly in Simplify3D.

this morning I switched back to the default Cura, and WOW, it printing nicely even if I changed the speed mul. to 150% or 200%

interesting, so what I did wrong in Simplify3D? any setting I can tweak for a better extrusion. thanks.
