Re: X Axis not working

Hi Skdo, Good to hear the motor works on the Y axis... As for the board carefully check with a multi meter across the two pins as shown. With power on you should get a reading around 400 millivolt (mV). If its much higher than this try turning down the trim pot (on the opposite side)... If you see n...

Re: X Axis not working

Hi Skdo, The grinding noise is (usually) when the motor reaches its torque limit... Double check the extruder assembly moves freely along the entire X Axis, and that the belt tension does not change over the travel (and is not excessively tight). Check the motor is not over heating, it should only b...

Re: Ooze Control Dual Head + Simplify

Hi Seaton, Beta, I targeted three primary areas to combat ooze. Retract speed, extruder thermal break efficiency, and filament moisture content. In my observations the control for ooze is primary moisture content of the filament, so I employ a 50~60 degree C heated chamber for filament drying 24 hrs...

Re: Common problems/Tips and tricks

Try insulating the bottom surface of the bed. Various solutions have been used, ranging from cardboard, ironing board pad, etc, etc. Personally I would be cautious using cardboard, and opted for aluminium foil tape instead as these are typically rated for 120 or more degrees Celsius (with the added ...

Re: 5v or 12v power output for pi zero

Hello, See attached links for 5V output on the Felix board. Just take note which version of board you have, as discussion in the links centres primarily around version 2.0 and 2.1 boards. http://www.felixprinters.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1793&p=8437#p8437 http://www.felixprinters.com/forum/vie...

Re: Looking for OPT1/OPT2 documentation and free Pins

I have already (successfully) attempted to use the thermistor port, although in this case for extr1 (pin 15). Interestingly I observed temperature error in the order of 17 degrees even before turning on the heater element. The PT100 circuit requires a steady 5 volt, and although my voltage is steady...

Re: Looking for OPT1/OPT2 documentation and free Pins

Hi Dreide, Sadly I had drawn the similar conclusions. No harm in asking though... Various circuits on the board appeared restrictive and was considering soldering in a bypass over the resistor. The prospect of using the PT100 was appealing (yes sensor type 13) in that it opened up the capacity to ex...

Re: Looking for OPT1/OPT2 documentation and free Pins

Having experienced excellent and trouble free prints using a dual E3D-V6 extruder set up I am now moving onto further development. Currently fitting the copper/nickel plated V6 heater blocks, and also attempting to fit a PT100 temperature sensor complete with amplifier to increase extruding temperat...

Re: changing the position of the heated bed at the end of a print

Although you have not specified your slicer (just your host), they are all fairly generic in terms of settings. For example assuming you are using Slic3r you would go to your printer settings (see attached images) and amend the default G-code line with your new preferred position. Note this command ...

Re: changing the position of the heated bed at the end of a print

Hi Printyant,

Can be easily changed in the G-Code manually or alternatively automatically when you generate print paths in the software... What software are you using? In most slicing software you can define optimal defaults for offsets, park positions, etc, avoiding errors.

Cheers,
