Operation of machine.

So i build ultimaker 2 clone with third party board (skr 1.4). I'l like to get replay from peopole who own generic ultimaker 2. 

How machine operates when you press arrow up or down on z axis.

Does build plate moves up when arrow up press or it's inverted.

 

I did set it up. so it home to max limit switch at the bottom.  So when i press home it's homing to bottom ( max limit switch) but if i press arrow up my build plate will move down.

if my arrows controls build plate correctly then when trying to home plate moves other direction.

Trying to find out is this ok or i need to do more research.

Thanks in advance.

    Looks great.

     

    Sorry, but can't awnser your question.

     

    I see that you are running an E3D V6. I'm waiting for the parts to do a similar build and was wondering what printerhead mount you have used? I could not find it on thingiverse.

     

    Because I already have a Prusa MK2.5s, Prusa MK3s and a Zaribo 320 MK3 I'm very familiar with Prusa parts and have lots of spares.

    Thats why i like the idea of reusing a Pinda probe. I did order a Trianglelab Dragon Hotend to try on this machine.

     

    You used a coupler on the z-spindle. is that working out ok? I was thinking of mounting the bottom side using a KFL08 and an extra belt to the stepper. Maybe even do a 2:1 gear ratio.

    here is link to hotend mount for e3d: Mounting unit

     

    Z axis couple is fine no issues at all. if you need more resolution on z axis just fit 0.9 stepper.

    @Anthrix Really inspired by your clone build. I'm curious about your MK52 bed plate. Did you create a custom strain relief file for the wiring? Also, was wondering the size of the solid spacers you used?

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
