Tricklaser Ball Cup Arm Length Question

I have a question about the arm length on the D300 plus upgrade. It was my understanding that the tricklaser ball cup arms used for the upgrade are 375mm measured from ball center to ball center. However, I noticed that the config file for the 1.19.2 upgrade for the plus on the github is coded for a...

Re: TrickLaser Ball-Cup Arms

Posting this because I saw this in another thread:

Don't forget to change the arm length in your config.g file if you use the 375mm tricklaser arms.

Re: [Solved] Difficulty printing as you get farther away from the center of the bed

Yeah in the end it looks like it was just a sum of a whole bunch of smaller stuff that was slightly wrong. Now I can back to printing the new carriages and effector for the tricklaser arms, hopefully that whole upgrade needs a bit less troubleshooting! Thanks again to both of you.

Re: Difficulty printing as you get farther away from the center of the bed

This photo wouldn't attach for some reason. Pay no attention to the part being cut in half, I did that to get a good height measurement. Interestingly, all of the recent tests parts I've printed have been printing at a correct layer size, but I'm now still having problems with these bumps and other ...

Re: Difficulty printing as you get farther away from the center of the bed

Nozzle is clean and the sock is also free of residue after each print. The following are photos from printing the test part near the z tower. It has a rough surface area on the right side of the print if it doesn't come out too well in the photos. IMG_20170825_192351.jpg IMG_20170825_192345.jpg IMG_...

Re: Difficulty printing as you get farther away from the center of the bed

Still having issues with printing after sanding and cleaning the PEI and rerunning calibration. The extent that the prints are failing is definitely less now, but I'm still noticing that the test disc comes out different if it is printed near the edges compared to the center. Right now all prints th...

Re: Difficulty printing as you get farther away from the center of the bed

I will definitely try cleaning the bed more thoroughly than I usually do and if need be I will try some light sanding on it. I will also try cleaning out the drive gear and paying close attention to the spool while printing. I have a pair of digital calipers that I'm using to determine that the z of...

Re: Alternatives to glass beds when using Polyetherimide (PEI) surface

I would not recommend just using the aluminum with the PEI surface. I suspect that if the bed lacks the glass intermediate material that it would be significantly more prone to warping when heated, resulting in a severely non-uniform bed. The size of the print surface on the d300vs does not help to ...
