Re: [Solved] Calibration deviation too high

Each of the bed probe heights is telling you how far the nozzle is "pressing" (from a Z0) in order to get the FSR/JohnSL board to show a trigger. Assuming that your bed.g has the center (x0 y0) last, the first oddity is that your underbed FSR's are triggering at a Z height greater than 0. (With unde...

Stepper motor wiring...

I'm posting this in response to someone on the facebook group looking for help with stepper wiring. (FB keeps deleting every reply I make with any URL link...) For information on determining how to wire a stepper to the duet board, take a look here: https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Choosing_and_connec...

duet configuration question

On the D300VS+, the default configuration sets max speeds for X and Y to 20,000 mm/min and the max speed for Z at 8,000 mm/min. M203 X20000 Y20000 Z8000 E20000 Being inexperienced with delta style printers, I'm confused why the Z max speed is so much slower than the others. Can someone enlighten me?...

Re: Current state of cooling

I don't know if it'll help you or not, but sometimes the type of air you're cooling with also has impact. Try blowing a desk fan at the right side of the printer (assuming your part cooling fan feeds from the right side.) Keep in mind that there might be drawbacks to cooling too quickly. On my enclo...

Re: Current state of cooling

Are the models available for your different part cooling fan attempts?

Thanks

PanelDue 7i information

(Posting this here because Facebook is just unreliable for anything worthwhile.) Some of this applies to all the paneldue models. The D300VS+ comes with a PanelDue in a separate box. Within that box you might find a 10 pin ribbon cable and a 4 pin cable. For most installations of the D300VS+, the 10...

Re: new D300VS+ ordered - what to print to prepare?

...For the next person who is wondering the same thing and finds this thread: The only thing I ended up printing (that wasn't included) was a bracket to mount the PSU to one of the vertical extrusions. A PanelDue case was included, though I ended up printing a different one (just for my personal pre...

Re: tapping/clinking noise on z-hop

I think I solved it. I got the noise to stop. (Of course, by posting this I'm cursing myself and the noise will start back up again.) In each top corner, there are two holes that "flanged bearings" go into. One of the holes is cut through the entire plate of metal and ends up closer to the center of...

Re: tapping/clinking noise on z-hop

Okay, it is definitely not an issue of retraction or hitting the plate. I homed the printer, and then manually moved it to X0 Y0 Z1. Then I'm moving the carriages back and forth with "G1 X120" and "G1 X0" (in the console tab.) It makes the tapping noise. Perhaps "cracking" noise is a better descript...
