Hi 

I have been trying to print the calibration code but the second head wont print the bondtechs slip,,, I decided to up the heat from 210 to to 220 and it worked BUT I think the temp display is all over when its target was 210 it was up to 218 and the led lights are flickering, if I leave it as per the code the second head wont print (clicking grinding from extruder) I have done an auto pid tune but it don't seem to help.. the first head is fine when it primes it runs freely when second head primes its not so free.....

 

Any help appreciated.....

    There are so many things that can go wrong it's hard to list them all.

     

    First and foremost seems to be temperature.  If the printer has been off for an hour do both temp sensors read the same thing?  If you heat up both at the same time do they both go roughly (very roughly) at the same speed?  If the second nozzle suddenly jumps by more than 3 degrees in less than 1 second then you have a bad temp sensor or a loose temp sensor wire.

     

    If you heat both nozzles to 140C and put a drop of water on the nozzle does it boil at about the same ferocity?

     

    Next - test the feeder - put the filament half way down the bowden, do "move material" to energize your bondtech and then pull down hard on the filament.  A bondtech can hold 15 to 20 pounds of force (10kg).  Even 10 pounds (5kg) is good enough for decent prints.

     

    If temp passes and motor passes, next are extrusion issues...

    thank you for replying, I am running the code for the Mark 2 calibration,  Heater 1 no problems temp ramps up and over takes heater 2 at about 170 heater 2 is my problem,  material wont stick to bed basic stuff like that when I up the temp to 216 it sticks but the temp fluctuates I don't know what the printing temp should be with that code but temp swings from 206 (stable print) to 216 then drops,,, Im using the Matchles blocks I got from 3dsolex along with his 35 w heater,,, All new

     

    I have done pid auto tune and I also went into the power budget and dropped extruder 1 down to 30w and uped extruder 2 to 40w to see if there was any change (answer no) temp 2 seems to wonder...

     

    thanks

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
