Re: Arm Length

So i finally got it dialed in. I chased my tail around and around trying to tweak lengths and run calibrations but never got any closer. Finally I read something DC42 posted about setting up a delta. He said, set your d rod length to whatever it actually is. Then using a grid of sorts, adjust the d ...

Carriages falling after print

I have a motor off at the end of my gcode. My carriages will typically descend 5-10mm after it homes and shuts off. In one case though it fell a few inches. I've already tightened the eccentric a little more. Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks, Rob.

Re: Arm Length

It's interesting that the formulas I've seen don't really work. They say to divide measured by intended and then multiply by arm length but then it only gets you part way there. It's like dividing by half each time. Will you ever get there? So I just started poking in numbers. I'm at 375.5 right now...

Re: Bed temp too low?

Ok So this morning I started tweaking the thermistor for the bed. It was reading 10deg low. So I kept tweking the m305 command in the config.g from H-97 all the way around to H15. That got me to .3 deg within room temp. Next I'll set it to 60 and see if that moved the upper end.

Re: Bed temp too low?

My new build is the same way. I have not had any issues. I'll check with a thermocouple and meter this afternoon. My thought would be the bed has more surface area so gets generally cool though. Just now at rest my bed was 11 but hot end was 19. I had to zero my probe on some ice. My plate is readin...

Bed lighting

I created this bracket to mount a small strip of 24v LED lights to the bed area to better see when the print first starts.

In the end the adhesive back isn't enough to keep them attached so a zip tie or wrap of kapton tape works.

Slots are 3mm.

Re: why should i not just get firmware directly from dc42/RepRapFirmware?

OH ok, someone helped me from the duet forum but basically it came down to motion, either with mjpeg streamer or motioneye, can be added to the web control in duet. Turned out to be a new feature in 1.19. So for my d300vs+ I have an RPI with a logitech usb camera. mjpeg streamer uses the motion pack...

Re: Arm Length

ok cool. I'm running my second pass right now. My first test (50mm square) came out at 50.4. So it gave me about at 377 ish arm length. I'll see if the second run is spot on and update.

Thanks, Rob.

Re: why should i not just get firmware directly from dc42/RepRapFirmware?

Thanks for the info, this is good to know it's an option. I hesitated to upgrade to 1.19.2 till I saw it on the ultibots github. I love the ability to stream a camera now as opposed to a jpeg file. Maybe you could just identify the stuff on your github as officially tested and configured. Originally...
