Hello, anyone who have managed to create a working marlin firmware for z360 printers?

If i skip through bed leveling prosses, it works. if i level it it won't.

New feeder on my Jennyprinter Z360

by jim2print

i have a Z360 printer (1.75mm version with dual feeder but i just use one) for about 10 month.
I printed a lot of pieces really different without big problems; i have a really awesome quality comparing with my old geetech G2s...
Now i wanted to update the feeder which make sometimes weak infill.
So i bought a geared feeder on ali (see photo)
I put it on my jennyprinter, inverted 2 wires of the motor to change rotation and i sended gcode to modify Esteps,
[Before modification:M92 X160.00 Y160.00 Z200.00 E514]
[After modification (gear ratio is 3:1)M92 X160.00 Y160.00 Z200.00 E1542, M500]
And my problem is during retractions; when my filament do retraction it goes really very sloooowly (about 5s for my 4.6mm retract)
In simplify 3D i adjusted my retract speed to 40mm/s (as before modifying my feeder)

Thoses slow retraction cause problems because plastic is flowing during this....

For info, i didn't chage any setings in Simplify3d after my feeder replacment.
When i try to extrude manualy with the maintenance menu all is good; plastic goes out when turning knob.

I can't understand my problem.... If you have an idea ??
Do i need to set the Edriver current or other thing ?

print bed not raising during print

by James2858

Hello everyone. I have a Ultimaker 2 clone that I built about a year ago based off of this build guide : https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1178406

Im running it with an arduino Mega 2650 and a Ramps 1.4 board. I was having some weird bugs with the firmware recently so I decided to install the latest version of Marlin today. It went smoothly and everything is working great when I test the printer using manual controls. The problem is that when I start a print the print bed stays in the lowest position instead of raising up to the extruder nozzle. My Z endstop is at the bottom, so essentially the print is starting at 0 on the Z-axis instead of the Zmax. I figure this must be an easy fix but Ive been playing with it for a while and I haven't been able to get it working. I have attached my configuration file. Let me know if you have any ideas.

Machine settings

by drweir

Any recommendations on machine settings in Cura? Ultimaker 2+ extended, or something else? And what about start and end gcodes?
