robert added a comment to T8617: E1 harness prevents X axis from reaching bump stop.

@cmerot @tutley @Steven So theres really not much of a change. The first printer I grabbed this morning ran into the wires. I didn't even bother trying to mess with it cause the whole point of this fix was for calibration to not have to mess with it. The second machine I grabbed right after that didn't have the retention clips installed and I could see that possibly during use that it would start interfering also, but Christian told me to not even mess with it right now since the first one was such a mess. Both of these toolheads have the new stuff installed on them, except the second one just doesn't have the retention clips.
First machine with retention clips and wires are just a bundled up mess with no improvement of function

I just wanted to post something in this one again cause we found some bed corners(PP-GP0396) that were way over-squished and caused the bed to sit so low that when you torqued the bed leveling washer down the spacer was holding the washer up off the bed wasn't making contact. @david.hall I got with @EricNugent and he confirmed that were too squished so can you get with the cluster techs and make sure they are keeping an eye out for it? The 2 I showed @EricNugent that I pulled off my machine had a 1mm difference in height.

@west Dylan said they will try to move it over more but then it kinda becomes an issue where you can only move it over so much because of how thick the wires are at the loom part and it wont fit into the groove in the housing.

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

@tutley Ive also seen retainer clips installed backwards on that side and it will make it home deeper than it should cause it leaves like a 1.5mm gap inside the double bearing holder for the x bump stop to go into the bearing holder, but that has been extremely rare.

Jul 3 2019, 2:03 PM · Quiver
robert added a comment to T8218: E2 nozzle misses top of calibration cube during auto cal.

@tutley Yes, the wire routing on the E1 motor has been an issue. I commented yesterday in the ticket about the wire retainer clips and that still being an issue where the wires causes interference. I wanna say Paulette emailed toolheads with pics of the wire routing and asked for them to be routed a little more neat but I can't verify that right now since shes out. But personally on my machines Im very vigilant with making sure it homes the X all the way but it can very much be an issue if not looked out for.

Jul 3 2019, 2:01 PM · Quiver
robert added a comment to T8218: E2 nozzle misses top of calibration cube during auto cal.

@marcio I agree that the 297 is probably what should be used cause on most printers the 298 places the nozzle really close to the plastic of the wiper mount at the start of the wipe.

Jul 3 2019, 12:58 PM · Quiver
robert added a comment to T8218: E2 nozzle misses top of calibration cube during auto cal.

@marcio , so when you say the printer should be adjusted you mean position the Y axis to where it lines up? Cause right now each machine gets the Y axis set with a set of jigs. One that sets the alignment from the left of the frame and one that sets the Y axis from the back of the frame and then we check and make sure its square to the frame. So as of right now we can't adjust each machine independently, we have to do it by the process thats it place by using the jigs. So that would be up to someone else if each machine can be adjusted to a custom dimension rather than using the jigs to set each machine the same as the last.

Jul 3 2019, 8:50 AM · Quiver
robert added a comment to T8218: E2 nozzle misses top of calibration cube during auto cal.

@karrad @marcio @DaniAO @tutley It seems like the clean nozzle function through the LCD places the E2 at an X position of 293mm while the start gcode places E2 in a range of 298-295mm. So when you start a print it doesn't seem to have too many problems and the wiper pad contains it inside the mount but when you just use the clean nozzle function its placing it outside the wiper mount at the 293mm position.

robert added a comment to T7383: E2 cable gets caught behind motor causing bad probes.

So as an update on this being used in production for about a week now the clip definitely helps with the E2 wires, but as far as the E1 side theres not much change. It doesn't hurt it but doesn't really help. The connector on the E1 motor has the wires coming straight out and sometimes the they pop out of the loom and cause interference with X homing. But sometimes its difficult for whatever reason to get the motor wires to stay where they need to be on the E1 side.

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

@tutley so @zachah was able to get the E2 nozzle to wipe on the pad by pivoting the E2 hot end . Its not center, but its on the pad and not scraping the plastic anywhere so this one will be passable. But a wider wiper pad sounds like something that would help us out tremendously!

Jul 2 2019, 9:56 AM · Quiver
robert added a comment to T8218: E2 nozzle misses top of calibration cube during auto cal.

So as of right now we have 3 machines doing this. The one I had this morning, Greg just got one and now the one I just started is doing it. E1 wipes fine, or at least would be passable, but E2 wipes right on the plastic of the wiper mount on the left side or misses it too far left all together. Does this need to become a separate ticket?

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

@tutley Its kind of a weird issue in my opinion. I had @zachah look at a machine this morning cause E1 would would wipe in the middle, maybe a smidge to the right on some passes, but E2 would miss the whole thing to the left. The x min bump stop gets checked on every machine and so do the Y axis jigs and its checked with the square and the extruder wires are ziptied out of the way. It seems like more often then not @zachah fixes the issue but pivoting the nozzles so it seems like that may be the issue more than anything else but thats not always a fix unless we just get multiple toolheads one after another with nozzles that are positioned where theyre needed. @tutley lets say everything is where it needs to be but the nozzle position is whats causing it to not wipe in the center wouldn't the auto-cal offset fix that? Cause the wiper pad is where it needs to be by setting everything with the jigs and it never seems to make a difference on the machines that have this issue.

Jul 2 2019, 8:41 AM · Quiver
robert added a comment to T8218: E2 nozzle misses top of calibration cube during auto cal.

So it helps with the E2 nozzle hitting the cube. But there must've been some confusion cause over the last couple weeks we've been having machines where for example E1 will wipe in the center but E2 will miss the pad all together and we we're hanging on just doing the best we could to get machines to wipe properly cause as we understood the firmware would do something to fix this since wiping issues we're first mention in the opening description of this ticket.

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

I too have seen this issue. I currently have a machine doing the same thing but when it goes back to do the 2nd more precise probes on the cube it seems to be hitting the cube better and not missing the tip of the nozzle. But I ran the autocal a second time with the new nozzle offsets and it still missed the second nozzle the first time so even with the correct nozzle offsets it still misses the first time.

After showing Dani the problem we discussed it and depending on the severity of the flickering we'll use a judgment call on whether or not we should send it.
