Measure the M907 code force with a scale issues with G code

Hey :)

I was trying to proove the fact that the M907 command does not work,.. or will it maybe? and how far will it work,..

ok, I thought around a test bench, to measure the force of the extruder ,.. or simply to place a scale on the bed, position the extruder without the nozzle (olsson block makes it possible) over the scale and extrude...

things go wrong at the code,..

I tried around with several codes, and I can send around the head, but I cant feed the filament,.. it ignores my commands in the gcode file?! is the a safety issue in the firmware that provides filament feeding under a point of temperature?

my gcode..

G90 ; use absolute coordinates

M82 ; set e codes absolute

M106 S0 ; fans target

M140 S25 ; Bed target temp

M190 S25 ; Wait for bed current temp to reach target temp.

M104 S25 T0 ; extruder target temp

M109 S25 T0 ; Wait for extruder current temp to reach target temp.

M907 E1400 ; increase extruder current

G28 ; home all axes

G1 X100 Y100 F3000 ; bring extruder to front

G92 E0 ; zero the extruded length

G1 Z100 ; lower

G1 E19 F200 ; purge nozzle quickly

G1 E26 F60 ; purge nozzle slowly

G92 E0 ; zero the extruded length again

G1 E-5.5 F400 ; retract

M84 ; disable motors

I tried to remove the commands for heating bed and nozzle ect,.. no effect,.. the head goes where I want him to go, but it does not feed material ?!

material settings are also changed,... no effect 25° on both

anyone an idea?

    is the a safety issue in the firmware that provides filament feeding under a point of temperature?

     

    *sigh*

    https://github.com/Ultimaker/Ultimaker2Marlin/blob/master/Marlin/Configuration.h#L266

     

    #define EXTRUDE_MINTEMP 170

     

    M302: Allow cold extrudes

    You're talking about an Ultimaker2, right? M907 changes the motor current, but AFAIK there is no linearly dependency between torque and current.

    What are you trying to prove....and why...? (just curious)

    good morning :)

    thanks for the answer :)... M302 solved the problem (Y)

    first of all, I would like to compare the force of the extruder with other people, and proove that my nema looses steps more often the older it gets, now I have 500h on it, and I feel the problem gets bigger,.. I know nema's are made for a lot more than 500h :)but something is hapening there,...

    then I want to know how effective it is to turn the current up, do a diagram force on current, and proove that it does not take a big advantage see what the heat does on it,.. ect.

    next step is a design with a gearbox for the extruder, it drives me nuts to go 25mm/s...

    Thanks for the explanation, and keep in mind that the chance to loose steps increases with an overheated stepper driver...

    Don't forget to make some additional printing tests with _lower_ current.

    Good luck!

    I gave it a try this morning, and compared with other guys my results are very poor!

    #1 2.200g

    #2 1.900g

    #3 1.700g

    so every step missing the force decreases :/

    on a cold nema,.. thats bad! no filament slip - I have seen guys lifting 10kg with their original feeders!

    Maybe some of you would be able to do the same test,.. to get some comparable data,..

    olsson block required,...

    remove the nozzle, cool it down

    customize the code to position the the head over a kitchen scale scale

    use this code as reference

     

    G90 ; use absolute coordinates

    M82 ; set e codes absolute

    M106 S0 ; fans target

    M140 S25 ; Bed target temp

    M190 S25 ; Wait for bed current temp to reach target temp.

    M104 S25 T0 ; extruder target temp

    M109 S25 T0 ; Wait for extruder current temp to reach target temp.

    M907 E1400 ; increase extruder current

    G28 ; home all axes

    G1 X100 Y100 F3000 ; bring extruder over the scale

    G92 E0 ; zero the extruded length

    G1 Z100 ; lower

    G1 E19 F200 ; purge nozzle quickly

    G1 E26 F60 ; purge nozzle slowly

    G92 E0 ; zero the extruded length again

    G1 E-5.5 F400 ; retract

    M84 ; disable motors

    now watch the scale ;)

    after the test, about 10mm of filament should stuck out of the head, cut it for the next test, to make sure that the feeder does not mill the filament on the same position again...

    and please show your results

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
