tutley updated subscribers of T5787: Frame Assembly: Trouble attaching the Z-lowers to frame assembly.

@oliver @kent Taz 6 z lowers are installed in the frame before the z motors. We may need to change the assembly flow for quiver if assemblers are going to be damaging the motors like this

@kent we have to have the cables where they are to pass conducted emissions. We had them toward the front of the case before and we failed emissions.

tutley added a comment to T5624: SL/Dual E2 Misses wiper pad entirely .

i dont have a measurement, but your machine has a properly seated, and correct length beta xmin bump stop. if yours is wiping 2 or so mm to the left, then the jig should be made an additional 2mm or so longer. (2mm may be too much)

tutley added a comment to T5624: SL/Dual E2 Misses wiper pad entirely .

@logan the only difference between yours and @marcio's machine that i can see now is the xmin bump stop. You have the beta part, and he has the alpha part. We may want to just adjust the beta y spacer jig so that firmware and start gcode wont need adjusted, and that way both alphas and betas will work with the same firmware versions

tutley updated subscribers of T5624: SL/Dual E2 Misses wiper pad entirely .

@logan well the alphas all have the older style xmin bump stops that are hard to get fully seated. So @anolen had me look at hers since they were all wiping too far to the right. All the xmin bump stops werent quite seated (about 2-3mm off) and i seated them properly and hers are all wiping correctly now.

tutley added a comment to T5624: SL/Dual E2 Misses wiper pad entirely .

@logan i inspected the x min bump stop and it was printed with a ton of oversquish. it measures about 39.5 off the rod, and was measuring just under 38mm when installed. I replaced the xmin bumpstop with one that measures 40mm. Also i compared the y axis position to @marcio's machine and yours was slightly to the right, so I shifted your y axis 1mm to the left. After these two changes, the machine has no probem wiping or probing. I will bring the machine back to you now.

tutley added a comment to T5624: SL/Dual E2 Misses wiper pad entirely .

@logan is your x min bump stop fully seated and the correct length? should measure 40mm. mine is measuring about 39.5 when installed

ok, yea this is a strange one. it seems the steps/unit are off at first glance, but you mentioned both the 10 and 20mm prints came in about .5 shy of the target. So i do not think it is steps/unit

@logan does this scale to larger prints? i.e. would a circle 100mm in diameter come in at 95mm or so?

@Steven @matth I received the tool head (it was disassembled when I got it) and reassembled everything. I found no mechanical issues, no binding, etc.
I installed the tool head on my machine running Marlin .81 and ran through a few calibrations making note of the offsets.

tutley added a comment to T5491: A few issues when replacing thermistors.

@oliver

  • you do not actually need to remove the blower shroud. you can remove the thermistor if the toolhead is in the up position.
  • breakage in the thermistor connector?
  • we remove the screws to install ground lugs on all other motors, which is necessary for EMI compliance. Doing this to the toolhead motors as well shouldnt be an issue, and it allows us to clean up the cabling
  • the thermistor wires (32 gauge leads) shouldnt be moving when the toolhead actuates if the cable routing is correct. The thermistor wires should be tucked above the heater cartridge wires and then the cable guard holds the molex connector. Any wire movement is on the back side of the motor on the 24 gauge thermisor harness wires.

tutley added a comment to T5183: LCD frozen, printer kept heating.

@DaniAO i saw this when the USB would cause the firmware to hang/freeze. If the extruders where heating while the firmware freezes or hangs, it seems there is a 50/50 shot that the PID loop gets stuck hammering power to the heaters and causes them to have a thermal runaway. Since Marlin is in a non functional state when this happens, it never notices the thermal runaway and never calls the kill() function.
