Description of a extruder definition?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Description of a extruder definition?



I try to implement my own extruder definition.

But the test at github claims about a machine_id, which cannot be found.

    "version": 2,
    "name": "Extruder 1",
    "inherits": "fdmextruder",
    "metadata": {
        "machine": "tronxy_base_extruder",
        "position": "0"

    "overrides": {
        "extruder_nr": { "default_value": 0 },
        "machine_nozzle_size": { "default_value": 0.4 },
        "material_diameter": { "default_value": 2.75 }




E AssertionError: The machine ID tronxy_base_extruder is not found.

E assert False




Can anybody explain me this?

    It does not say "machine_id", it says "machine ID". See the line that says "machine": "tronxy_base_extruder". This refers to a file named "tronxy_base_extruder.def.json", which apparently does not exist. It is supposed to be the id of the machine definition (I'm just guessing, "tronxy_base"?).
