Feedback During Cura FirstRun Wizard / Checkup


Recommended Posts

Posted · Feedback During Cura FirstRun Wizard / Checkup

Daid,

When I run FirstRun Wizard > Ultimaker Checkup and click the limit switches the only feedback is the prompt to click the next limit switch thus when you click the bottom Z limit switch there is no feedback at all.

Suggestion: An "Limit Switch OK" message after each switch is successfully detected so that the human explicity understands wether or not each of the switches are working.

Thanks, Bill

    I'm reworking the checkup wizard. I'm almost done with it, and it will be a LOT easier to follow, with clear indications what is happening, better logging, and pictures to show which endstops to press.

    can i ask you to double check the text in the endstop calibriation. it told me to check the z top endstop, i pushed it, and nothing happened, then i pushed the lower one, and that worked.

    That does look alot better, I'd also suggest some clarity on what should be done for the steps per E test.

    I made that test very clear by removing it all-together. It's not really needed to get good results, it's a 1% final tweaking thing that doesn't belong there at all.
