Re: adjusting for dimensional accuracy?

That's how I found the .7mm discrepancy.

Printing calibration tests now.

Re: adjusting for dimensional accuracy?

M92 will just set the steps/unit though. Can I do partial steps? Also, what does the M92 line look like for X and Y?

adjusting for dimensional accuracy?

hictop i3 on 1.6.1

I'm losing about .7mm per 100mm on a print (both x and y), is the best method to resolve this to change the default axis steps per unit? currently set at x 80 and y 80. 80x1.007 is 80.56 so it looks like I can be ~.07 under, or ~.06 over.

...or is there another way?

I'm running through the bed leveling routine using a piece of paper as the guage. setting it just above where the paper grabs. This is how I've been manually leveling printers fo...

manual MESH_BED_LEVELING howto?

I'm trying to enable mesh bed leveling via #define MESH_BED_LEVELING in marlin 1.6.1. I've hot a hictop i3 with an aluminum plate bed that is warping just enough to blow my prints and make manual leveling impossible. When I go to prepare>bed leveling, the printer performs the auto-home sequence, hit...

Re: Firmware Marlin-1.1.0-RC6 - My Latest Version

I've set reverse endstops to true which resolved that. I'm trying to enable mesh bed leveling (manual) which is just doing the auto-home routine. I'll start a new thread for that.

Re: Firmware Marlin-1.1.0-RC6 - My Latest Version

sorry for the delayed response.

firmware flashed, screen is working. homing of all axis is backward though. steps are correct, ie x+1 moves gantry right, z+1 raises it.

Usually SD card, but there is a print running on the hictop right now so I have to wait it out.
