Re: What's everyone working on

Hi, Well yesterday, decided to try putting a capacitor across the switch on the filament out sensor on the Ender5. Wow, what a difference. Did a test with the sensor laying over at the side and ran a test print. Near the end of the print and the sensor had not tripped, I checked the voltage again.Th...

Re: What's everyone working on

yeh, that is what I thought until I had a 9 hour print fail 8+hours in because I wasn't paying close attention to it! So my search is ongoing. For the ender, I have finally found the "OctoPrint Enclosure Plugin " that will give good testing results with the switch in the Closed position when filamen...

Having to rebuild the hotend on my Tronxy X5S-400 after a stupid operator error of cross threading the ...

Need help determining existing parameters Please

Hi, OK, have a Tronxy X5s-400 and considering upgrading the control board so I can incorporate some new features in Marlin 2.x and have a better control board. :-P I have a general idea of how to go about it, but want a base set of parameters to incorporate. Sometime in the past, I remember there wa...

Re: OctoPi produces weak prints

Hi, I think you nailed it when you talk about the power issue. I was having the same type of things happening and getting the low voltage warning. In my case, I was using a buck converter rated at 3 amps being fed off my main power supply. Used a short (less than 2") micro usb cable to power the pi....

Re: Creating a stop point in Cura GCODE

Use the Extension that is builtin to Cura and the Post Processing script "Pause at height" and this will do exactly what I think you are requesting.

Re: Tronxy X5S-400 and another problem

Well, it has been several days and we relocated the end stop. It seems to have resolved the problem more than we hoped for. It seems the bed is level when we home it now. So the whole problem revolved on the left Z axis motor setup. It would appear as per GrueMaster/SgaboLab that desynchronization w...

Re: Tronxy X5S-400 and another problem

GrueMaster, YOU da man, thanks for the link as this explains the problem quite well. The machine shown is the junior sized version of what I have but the same construction. I have been toying with the idea of somehow syncing the Z axis screws but didn't think of this being the cause of my problem. I...

Re: Tronxy X5S-400 and another problem

GrueMaster, Its the whole bed that moves and no, the print head is not moving as we recently upgraded the system with a linear rail on the print head gantry to remove that problem. The print head moves in the XY directions and the Bed in the Z. Its a corexy machine. Double checked the mount for the ...

Tronxy X5S-400 and another problem

Hi all, Well, here we are again seeking some ideas. For quite some time, we level the bed and do a print. Then like today after printing yesterday, went to do another print and have to level the bed height again because for some reason the distance between the nozzle and the glass bed becomes nothin...

Re: Tronxy X5S-400 problems solving help needed

Ok, USPS did their thing and the motors arrived. So picked one out of the box and said OH well, lets do it. Took the old motor off and then put the pulley on the new on and put it back on the printer. The new one comes with a 1M cable and flat connector on the end. So pulled the cover off the contro...

Re: Tronxy X5S-400 problems solving help needed

Well after I calmed down a bit, (read libation) and was on my way to refill, stopped by the printer and checked the connection to stepper motor itself(of course all power is off). Then out of habit, tried to rotate the motor by hand and it seemed rather stiff so unplugged the connector and removed t...

Re: 3D printer fan(s)

On my machine, the extruder fan is always on. Therefore, it was wired into the 12v (in my case) power input to the control board.

That is to say there is NO control over this fan. It is always on.
