Re: BLTouch issues

Thanks guys I finally got it working. I followed boucha18's instructions to #define INVERT_Z_DIR false //v001 9/24/2015 // For MakerGear M2, black Z motor, leave "false"; for older black and silver Z motor, set to "true" Set your home direction to -1 if you want it to home to the top. Should be: #de...

Re: BLTouch issues

Anyone have any ideas at all? Even a thought? I'm really frustrated because I believe the sensor is working correctly, but it seems that the printer 'ignores' the bltouch's signal. I feel as if it's just one thing that I'm missing in the settings, but I don't know what it is. Anything is appreciated

BLTouch issues

Hey guys, I've been trying to get my bltouch sensor to work for quite a awhile now, but I just can't seem to get it. I have a problem similar to jfjohnny5 I then ran another G28 command. The bed raises, hits the probe, and instead of going up, it now rapidly descends until it hits the bottom. At tha...

Need some advice on a suction device

Hey guys, I'm setting up a ventilation system using this pool hose . What would you guys suggest I use as the suction device? I was thinking of lining up a couple computer fans, or using a hairdryer without the heat coils :D, but I was just wondering if there were other options that you guys think w...

Re: Move Z-Endstop to the bottom

Kind of got it I followed this thingiverse thing's instructions: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1645866 It does everything normal, but a second after it wipes the nozzle on the bed, it makes a loud squeaky noise and the bed drops to the bottom. After that it continues printing like nothing happene...

Move Z-Endstop to the bottom

Hey guys, I'm trying to move the z-endstop to the bottom using makergear's bottom z endstop mount (https://github.com/MakerGear/M2/blob/master/Experimental%20Parts/Z%20Probe%20for%20auto-level/Bottom_Z_Endstop_Mount.STL), but I'm having trouble due to lack of information. I saw that Rick asked every...

Re: What's wrong with this print?

Thanks!! I finally got it now! I ended up putting my extrusion multiplier to 115%.
Hmmmm, just noticed your post 13brv3. I'll see if it helps at all, and I'll reply back if it does.

Re: What's wrong with this print?

TONS better, but it still has some problems. Tried printing a bigger piece because the cubes were looking promising, but I don't think the layers adhered very well to each other. I attached some pictures. I'm thinking increasing the extrusion multiplier will help but the only time I'm able to duplic...

Re: What's wrong with this print?

Thanks! I can definitely tell it helped, but it still does the same thing, just not as bad. Before I waste anymore plastic, any ideas on what else I should change? Thanks a lot!
P.S. here's some pictures of one of the parts I attempted to print. It breaks apart with very little effort

Re: What's wrong with this print?

Sorry :? - I'm printing hatchbox's black pla at 215 degrees - I have a .35mm nozzle on a v4 extruder, and I have the primary layer height set to .3mm - Extrusion width is on auto, and I changed the extrusion multiplier throughout the print from around 50 to 150% but I couldn't get it to print proper...
