Hi, everyone. I'm getting a problem in 3d printing a part. When it reaches a certain height, y axis of the printer slips and all the above part above that is misaligned a bit. I'm getting this 3 times, every time, gcode was generated separated, and placed command in pronterface, but the problem persists. If someone have solution to this, please help me in this regard. Pictures are attached.
I just got a BLTouch and I cant seem to get it to do anything. I went into marlin 1.1.5 and enabled the BLTouch option. When I turn on the printer the sensor will light up red go in and out twice and then stop. When I try to deploy or stow the sensor manually or through pronterface nothing happens. I am using a ramps 1.4 and the wiring is correct. Any help would be much appreciated.
Has anyone come up with a bell tension gauge or guide lines on to know if you belts are tight enough? Currently printing near perfect lines on all axis. Was able to print http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1019228 with all the detials. But eventually I assume the belt will stretch. I have seen the printed belt tensioners, and the one that uses the spring from wooden clothes hanger. What is the proper bounce? Is there a sound, like when tuning a string instrument? How much is too much?
After a long print my printer has decided something is wrong, perhaps with the PINDA?
It started with the error message - bed leveling failed sensor disconnected or cable broken
When doing a self test - I get the " Please check: Endstops Wiring Error Z" when it tries to raise the print head. But only when the print head is on the right side of the bed. If I move the print head to the left and redo the self test, it will pass
The PINDA light goes off when a metallic surface is near the tip
When trying to do a first layer calibration or mesh bed leveling I get a "bed leveling failed sensor disconnected or cable broken waiting for reset"
I've tried adjusting the PINDA position to no avail
- I re-flashed the firmware version 3.1
So, I'm suspecting a failed or defective PINDA - is there any chance I can replace it with one from Amazon? I would like to get my printer back on line faster than waiting for the part from Prague.
Here is a video showing the Z calibration process. Note how it 'skips' over 3 right side points out of the 9 and the end just seems to stop with no indication of failure on the screen.
BTW- Has anyone replaced the PINDA with one of the ones found on Amazon, I can get those faster (and cheaper) than one from Prague.
I'm experiencing a very bad issue where my prusa clone stops extruding mid-print and then resumes like normal a couple of layer later.
I'm printing PLA at 210°C and 40mm/s
Can't be with the heater cartridge or thermistor because I have the thermal runaway protection enabled (Marlin 1.1.8)
I replaced the extruder motor but the issue is still present.
Please help :(
After following every single clue I could, I finally figured out that octoprint was skipping a whole layer and try to build up from there on an empty space which caused my prints to break a part.
I don't know the real cause of that, maybe a corrupted micro SD card or a bug but I won't be using it for long prints any more.
