Calibration Error Marlin Ultimaker Original Plus


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Calibration Error Marlin Ultimaker Original Plus


I have this problem, that makes a real pain in the arrssss to calibrate the esteps of my second ultimaker plus.

The think it's that. When you change the esteps, save, push filament, it pusshes or retracts a random amount of filament. After the initial mistake it works, but also it makes really absurd the process of esteps calibration.


How to repeat the error:

Change esteps value

Tell the printer to push X filament

Retract that amount

The filament didn't go back to the original position.

Also, I only got this on video, but sometimes it retracts instead of pushing forward. So after the esteps, save, push, if that initial push forward it's of, lets say 5mm, then it retracts X amount random of filament. So it's a real pain in the arrrrssss.

Tested this with amedee firmware builder, official firmware and lastest cura firmware. All do the same. But sometimes it just works, and sometimes it just fails

So... Any fix anytime soon? (I know ultimaker it's focused on their precious white printers, but some love to our wooden machines could be awesome).

BTW, the way to avoid this ugly bug, it's to use Printrun and use gcodes to move filament, but using G1 E(amount) F(speed) after a M302 to allow cold extrusions.

Using this gcodes this bug didn't show to me on 3 machines. But also, it doesn't make freaking sense...

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • 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 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.
