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

Yes that's why I was asking if you bought the E3D UM2 upgrade kit as opposed to buying just the hot end, as in the first case they would have sent 24v automatically...

Happy you found the issue.
