Marlin going crazy?

Recommended Posts

I experienced something quite odd yesterday, I was printing, and suddenly my printing speed increased to insane. I had to abort the print because it caused the filament drive to grind into the filament. But I wouldn't be surprised if the print was happening at my travel speed of 300mm/s.

I tried starting another print, but it was still going at insane speeds, I had to reset the machine before it worked normal again.

Anyone else ever experienced anything like this? I was printing with RepG with the realtime control window open. I printed the same GCode with no problems after the reset.

was there maybe a gcode m220 in the file...?! that sets the the speed in some marlin versions

I'll check, I did do the print from "Slic3r" before this print. Might be related, so I'll check that GCode.

Ok, more info. It's related to the realtime control feature from RepG. Once I click that panel open it goes all crazy. Not sure if RepG sends a M-code at that point, but it goes crazy, even if I put the speed down to 10% it goes crazy fast. It's only sending F180 at that point, which should be crazy slow.

The strange thing is, the realtime control worked fine before...

Hi All!

I experienced the same behaviour with marlin (9f57cdd and 0ad9779). Every time I open the realtime-panel (RepG25/RepG26alpha, MacOSX) the printer behaves crazy at crazy speeds! I tried this several times and actually I can't use the realtime controls. Also lowering the value to low values (10%) has no effect......

Best regards,

Toni

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
