PidTune Ultimaker 2 with e3d v6

Recommended Posts

Hi all, i'm installed an e3d v6 on my UM2.

Now i must to do the PidTune, because the heater cartridge is to 40W. But i've so much problem;

If I connect the printer to my macbook with pronterface, I send the M303 command after a few second pronterface say me:


 >>> M303SENDING:M303PID Autotune startPID Autotune failed! Temperature too high


What can I do?

Tkanks a lot ;)

Are you doing this with warm hot-end?

Marlin gives this message when you overshoot the target temperature by 20°C. Since you don't specify a target temp it is 150°C by default so if you start with a hot-end warmer than 170°C it will abort.

Anyway, you should do PID tuning at the temperature you usually use -- if you typically print at 215°C, use:


M303 S215

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
