My tornado has temperature and overall glitches

by Swayle

Hi,
It's been a few months since i have my Tevo Tornado and it worked really well but a couple days ago, i had a huge problem.
The temperature display isn't right and its showing approximative temperature, constantly changing making it unable to print because it can't stay on a steady temperature.
Plus, the home axis button and overall axis controls don't do what they should do and act strangely
On the display, the X, Y and Z are alternating between "0" and "?"
I'm putting some photos so you can see what i'm talking about(actually its between 18 and 20 degrees celcius in the room)
Sorry for my bad english it's not my main language

Octolapse Settings for Tevo Tornado 2018

by 3DWelshman

Hey there,

I am wondering if anybody has settings for the Tornado that work with Octolapse.
While I am able to manage to get timelapses, I cannot seem to get the timing of the extruder head and when the camera takes a snapshot down. This of course leaves us with a timelapse that gives you a headache because the bed is moving back and forth the entire time. I just want a fixed shot .

If anybody has been successful, please post your printer profile settings here and how long of a delay you set your camera to. Also, if you needed to add to your start gcode.
Much appreciate.

Marlin v 1.1.9 upgrade

by Lightpainter

Marlin v 1.1.9 upgrade. I've had my TEVO TORNADO for the last week.

The first thing I did was to replace the 512ng SD Card with as SanDisk Ultra 32gig SD Card.

Next I ordered 3 Trinamac TMC2808 and one LV8729. To replace the stock Stepper Drivers. Possably I should have ordered TMC2130's but the ones that I ordered should work fine.

I would like to upgrade the firmware in my Green Grimlin to Marlin v 1.1.9. What came in my printer was Marlin v 1.1.

I was told that I could find the marlin v 1.1.9 in either the facebook "TEVO TORNADO OWNERS GROUP", or from Tevo.

In the owners group, files section, I did find a a firmware upgrade file, but upon opening it in arduano, I can find nothing that says the version, or if it has been modified to the TEVO TORNADO.

I have already d/l the firmware upgrade from Marlin, but I do not know what I have to change, to make it work.

If anyone knows what is needed, I would appreciate the help very much.

Thank You.

Pauses halfway into the print

by Rulo360

Recently my printer pauses and turns off the hotend temperature randomly, this occurs at about 30min to 3 hrs into the print. Printer screen displays the message "Click to Resume Print". It also pauses at a different layer height each time, hard to pinpoint something directly on the Gcode...

Anyone having the same issue?
