On KT-PR0050NA-0010 the printer is wiping too far to the left. The y-axis is set to the correct distance and the printer is homing just fine.
So I have found the wipe location for the calibration cube and the start gcode are wiping in different locations. This could explain why we are getting different wipes during different tests.
Hey! Please let me know how the new start code works. I have a suspicion it will still be a little to the left and I am working on a fix right now just in case but I don't wanna send it through without a good amount of recent feedback confirming the need. THANK YOU!
QB21 is also wiping too far to the left, bump stop correct, spacing of Y-axis is correct.
@west any other ideas for ways to solve this or things that might cause this to not be consistent? I looked at this machine and couldn't figure out why it is wiping to far to the left.
@MikeR did you ever find a way to solve this issue?
This is the gcode that we are using. It may also be worth noting again that this gcode still wipes in different spots than the automatic nozzle calibration. We are not getting good wipes with that, either.
@MikeR there is new firmware .104 and later that corrects the probe points as some machines were missing the front right corner. This requires new start gcode, which will correct the wipe. I gave @anolen some start gcode that has the wipe corrected, but she also needed to make some edits,so this is in the works
We gave production an updated slice just now. They are testing it out to make sure all of the feedback is included and working well. Once they've printed a few and everything checks out I will push it along with the profile(s), and when the new wipe pattern comes around we can just reslice.
@tutley I know.
To be more specific, is there anything I can incorporate in the slicing settings (CuraLE) that would assist with better circular dimensional accuracy? If not, are there any gcode commands that could (or should) be utilized to ensure that backlash is enabled for the entirety of the print or anything else that may help in that endeavor?
@oliver T6451 was merged here which included incorporating anything that may help with circular dimensional accuracy, which it looks like can be included by adjusting backlash fading distance in cura.
I will provide them with a slice with backlash compensation enabled, and post results in T5891
But thanks for your input
Per Adam, we are flashing to .106, and we are using the latest vernier gcode supplied by Logan (v0.7). So far we have noticed a huge improvement on wiping locations on both the nozzle calibration and the vernier print. I have one printer (QB0022) that the left nozzle hits the wiper mount plastic on the right but during the print with the new start gcode wiped on the pads.
