E3D Volcano PID numbers

Recommended Posts

I've upgraded my UM2 to use the E3D Volcano hotend. It's wired up and working.

However when I try the PID autotune using Tinkergnome firmware it runs riot and vastly overshoots by upto 30 degrees but comes down ok.

But when I try to print the printer resets itself during the heating up cycle.

If anyone has this setup please suggest PID numbers for me to start at.

 

Thanks

Graeme

Has NO ONE any experience of a Volcano on an Ultimaker 2 !?!

 

The PID Autotune overshoots and shuts down even at a target of 100c yet when I heatup the nozzle to 100c it goes to 140 and then settles down to plus or minus a few degrees.

 

Doing a manual tune following various links doen't work either.

 

Any Ideas on setting or what to do?

 

Regards

    • "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.
