Need serious help could be software

by redx88

I am a 100% noob when it comes to 3d printers i put together my Tronxy X5SA and thought i could print instantly, but the auto lever keep putting the values in negative numbers no matter how tight or how loose the screws are and that one number stay at 0 no matter what. The extruder went into the hot bed i think because i didn't know if the screws were too loose or what the sensor is working i did the metal test and is aligned well with the extruder i just don't know what to. Please Help!!! If there is a way I can pay you I will. I'm ready to start a hobby.

TronXY XY-3 Endstop for X and Y not working, Z appears to work

by Syarnis

I have a TronXY XY-3 and recently the motherboard decided it needed to go to the big silicon valley in the sky. So I purchased a new one and installed it. Everything seemed fine, until I went to home everything. The hot end presses against the X axis end-stop and begins grinding more than a clubber during a Cardi B song.

I tested each end-stop by pressing it and heard a beep from the X, nothing from the Y and a beep from the Z. When I move each axis and press on the X end stop, the hot end keeps moving. If I press the Y, the bed keeps moving. If I press the Z, the head stops moving. I did use the move function to move the Y axis to the end stop and it grinds there after it presses the little toggle, there was a beep at that time.

I have checked each connection on the motherboard and the wiring to make sure that everything is secure, and it is. I have also made sure the connections are plugged into the proper ports (I did this initially by unplugging each wire and plugging it into the corresponding port on the motherboard).

I am not sure if there needs to be something in the gcode, firmware, or whatnot. In fact, I am not too smart when it comes to these things, but follow directions from various tutorials very well. So, I can learn.

I also updated the firmware today before trying to home the unit.

If you need any information, please tell me what I need to add to this topic and tell me how to get it so I can post it.

CURA 4.6.1 profile/settings for TronXY X5SA?

by 3D_Piper

Does anyone have a good CURA 4.6.1 profile for X5SA?
I saw this post: https://old.reddit.com/r/3Dprinting/comments/eg01yo/tronxy_x5sa_need_help_with_cura_441_setting/
But it looks like there are some new options (see attached). Heated build volume?

Tronxy x5sa keeps pushing the print bed up into the nozzle...

by FFaruq

...and it doesn't stop. I have to switch it off.

I bought this Tronxy x5sa off a friend. Was fully working. I had to replace the hotend which I did. The hardware is all fine. Just something amiss with the software, and as a total noob to 3d printing I can't work it out. Tinkering with the hardware has been easier for me. This is doing my head in.

This 'grinding' of the bed into the nozzle happens either [A] whenever I start printing a gcode I've made in cura (there must be some settings amiss but they seem fine), but [B] also happens when I select Z-offset on the printer controls. Before I can manually adjust the head/nozzle moves right round the 'outside' of the bed, then moves in and raises the bed into the nozzle, till again, I exit or manually stop it. The bed is full of big dents now and I'm pretty fed up with it all.

Hope someone can help. Much appreciated.
