after every update I have to reset the stepper value

 

Usually not, the value is saved to EEPROM and stays there - until the next factory reset.

And you can set and save it with two lines of gcode - like explained in the Bondtech FAQ, no need to turn the wheel for an hour... 🙂

 

The build script and the Makefile on GitHub are (out of the box) only suitable for my individual installation (which is also changing now and then...) and mainly there to compile all variants in one go. I admit that it can be pretty hard to modify it to your needs, if you've never done it before.

    Ok! Thanks, again! You're right about the factory reset. I did that. Only because Cura wasn't able to upload the new firmware.
    So, long story short: Never mind! 🙂 I'll leave the compiling to the pros and download it when ready. I'm done here. Have a good weekend!

    Hi guys,

     

    I have an Ultimaker 2 with the latest tinker software.  I just bought a heater mat from Mcmaster (Part #: 35765K482 ), and I bought a solid state-relay from Digikey (Part #CC2108-ND).  Everything works like it is supposed to, but with the "Bang-Bang" setup on the heated bed I am getting a lot of temperature variation, which is causing thermal expansion of my plastic.  During prints the plastic would expand and shrink, which would cause layers to protrude outside the shell in a repeating pattern.  (Please see the attached picture)

     

    I know that it is the heated bed, because as soon as I shut it off completely the shell went back to a perfectly smooth wall.  I have tried many different material, Colorfabb HT, Ultimaker ABS, Ultimaker PLA, and Matter Hackers Pro-series PETG.  All of them have acquired this pattern ever since I changed the heated bed.  

     

    If someone could help me turn on the PID controller for the heated bed, and show me how to use the auto-tune, I would really appreciate it.  

     

    Thanks,

     

    Andy

    PID switch is:

    "Advanced -> Preferences -> Temperature control -> Buildplate"

    (select and click "Buildplate" in the menu to toggle the PID mode)

     

    I never used autotune for the buildplate, i think, autotune doesn't work very well on Marlin (generally) - but perhaps can you use it as a starting point.

    I would pre-heat the buildplate to the target temperature before starting autotune.
