Upgade to 2+

Recommended Posts

Have just upgraded to 2+ and installed firmware. Now Y axis limit switch not working. It was working fine before upgrade. Could this be a firmware glitch?

Hi and welcome,

I don't think so, please check that the switches are still activated when moving the head by hand. They are activated by the rods, so maybe you didn't put the rods back in place.

If you have an error message (X/y switch broken) then usually a factory reset helps (be aware that you should remove the filament (maybe by hand) because the wizard will go through the first run thing

I can not do a reset as it is locked into the first start wizard and won't allow me anything other than work through the wizard until  it hits the ER07 error. How can I skip the wizard and do the factory reset?

Thank you for the suggestions but I solved the problem. The X-Axis switch was not fully activated due to the fan ducting on the print head was wider than the original and was fouling on the printer casing not allowing the limit to fully trip. I repositioned the switch so it tripped before the print head contacted the case.

PROBLEM SOLVED!

    • 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.
