E3D Volcano PID numbers

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · E3D Volcano PID numbers

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
