Endstop and Extrusion issues. Please Help!

by emiljermann

I am completely new to 3d printing and got the Tevo Tarantula as my first printer. I set it up successfully and I have managed to load Marlin onto it. Here is where I run into issues.
When I start a print the y-axis motor has trouble going backwards and grinds. It goes forward perfectly fine but when it tries to go backward it grinds backward and doesn't move as far as it did when it went forward.
Another problem I am having is that the X-endstop will push against the frame but the x-motor still tries to go left for a few more seconds before it starts to move forward. This causes a loud grinding noise from the extruder plate trying to force itself through the metal supports.
The last problem I am having (as of yet) is that when it starts to extrude the extruded plastic looks uneven and blotchy and after a few seconds the extruder almost forgets where it started and starts to do a second layer over nothing.
I have had so many problems getting this thing to work. In every tutorial I have looked at they just plug it in and it runs smoothly.

Thanks for any help!

MKS Base v1.4 pinout

by Denis56

Hi all,

I am looking for the complete pinout (and if possible a schematic) of the MKS Base v1.4 sold with my Tarantula, and I cannot find it. I specifically want to locate pins 4 and 44, for a few mods I'd like to try, but no joy so far. Attached is a picture of the board. Thanks for your help.

Case for power source, screen and motherboard?

by Roichu

Hi guys!

The next week I’ll buy a Tarantula (large bed, autolevel, and probably double extrusor, not sure about it, do you recomend it?)(it’s also my first printer haha) and I have seen on this web a couple of cases to install the motherboard, power source and the lcd screen, but those models where adapted to carry a raspberry pi. I would like to know if someone here has the files in order to print one to place only the stock electronics.
Thanks in advance!

Here is one of the projects that I refer to:
