Yes, we write it down but I don't think we've seen the issue in a little while. That doesn't mean it won't happen again.

paulette added a comment to T8218: E2 nozzle misses top of calibration cube during auto cal.

While @zachah was able to fix some this way, I have one right now that was adjusted this way and E2 still misses the top of the calibration cube, so there might be another underlying issue.

paulette added a comment to T8068: Pro makes loud clicking noise when homing/auto leveling and x-axis is not level.

yes, and when you rack it the other way where the right side is higher, it will do it's little jig and level itself. The left side makes a seriously loud cracking noise, not normal at all. It also will not lower itself off the switch after it is done, like it will when completing auto-level normally.

Possibly, but we could not see anything getting in the way. It only does it when the x-axis is out of level and the left is higher than the right. In all other cases it homes and triggers properly.

paulette added a comment to T8068: Pro makes loud clicking noise when homing/auto leveling and x-axis is not level.

Yes, it triggers the switch, but instead of softly bouncing up and down to level that side it makes a hard, loud clicking and then stops without coming back down off the switch button. We checked to see if the motor or motor mount was hitting the Z idler anywhere and it wasn't.

@kent I don't know as I don't know what is causing the issue. So far this is the first one we've seen on the line and wanted it documented since it was such a weird issue and a solution wasn't obvious or immediately found, and also to see if anyone else had suggestions to fix and possibly prevent it going forward.

paulette added a comment to T8068: Pro makes loud clicking noise when homing/auto leveling and x-axis is not level.

@zachah and @MikeR came onto the line to help diagnose and these were the things we thought might be causing the issue based on observation and prior experience with a similar issue on the part of the Merpeople. Yes, there were other printers to be calibrated and we probably should not have spent so much time on the line, but as we already had it half apart we thought we'd try it real quick.

paulette added a comment to T7789: When flashing Pro with Cura LE, the touchscreen flashes until you power cycle.

When flashing through Cura, the screen does this weird fade out, where it looks like static on your TV and increases density over the whole screen. When flashing through the terminal, the screen is black during the flashing process. Could this "fuzz" be affecting the way the screen is displaying and causing some sort of residual static/flashing?

@EricNugent Not very many, I think many get caught when someone is going over the Frame Checksheet, but it should still be a process that a station should be responsible for. If it's on the checksheet, it should have been set/checked prior to that at some point.

May 21 2019, 12:19 PM · Quiver
paulette reopened T6760: update belt tensioning on X end left and right as "Open".

There are still no steps added to the OHAI in regards to setting the Z-belt tension. This is a step that should be completed before it gets to calibration. Also, it should be communicated verbally to the assemblers when the change is made, so it is not accidentally skipped over.

Well Greg and Paul have found 8 sticks so far that gave that same USB read error since Friday. They are in a bin here if anyone wants to look at them. Greg mentioned that the failures are happening during burn-in, so i'm wondering if this is a different issue?

So we're still seeing this issue. I had one today that would not read the USB stick on boot up, but it read a different USB on boot up. The one that will not read on boot up will read if you remove it and re-insert it while the machine is on. I put a red tag on the USB stick that did not read on boot up.

paulette added a comment to T6848: qa records for toolhead and filament runout sensor.

Another question regarding the Filament sensor sheets: We received a stack of checksheets filled out and a bag of filament sensors. While the sheets aren't crumpled, there is no way to match the sheet to the sensor that was checked by a certain person or date. That is like saying it doesn't even matter, just take a random sheet! A procedure needs made for these also.

These toolheads came labeled as @oliver mentioned, but the papers were crumpled at the bottom of the boxes. Maybe if when an order is brought over, all papers come in a stack in a bag or sleeve of some sort? Assemblers could then match the numbers on the toolhead to the corresponding sheet? Or something along those lines?

@logan Talking with Levi in packaging, we thought it would be easiest for all of us to make sure the screws for the tube clamps were loosened before sending to be packed, that way they don't have to worry about trying to move the X Axis. This is what we've been doing for the Betas that have been packed so far. Maybe just add that step to the calibration OHAI?

I am running into this issue also. The tube is very curly, and gets caught whenever it goes to the top, regardless of left or right position.
One thought I had is do the tubes need to be so long? I know we don't want to cause any binding due to them being too short, but the excess slack seems to give it room to curl.

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.

@MikeR was unable to replicate at his station. We brought it back to mine (Cahow) and was able to replicate the problem. It only happens when the USB Cable is connected to Cahow. We tried it on Robert's station (Cardinal) and were not able to replicate. While in the middle of running the nozzle auto calibration, we unplugged the USB cable and plugged it into Cahow and it died. I did not have this issue until today, after the Wednesday updates.

It may be worth noting that it will turn off without any contact between the machine and myself, so it's not like I'm shocking it.
