problem in the extruder motor control and temperature

Recommended Posts

Posted · problem in the extruder motor control and temperature

I have some question.

-Is normal that, in the replicator g control panel, al the axes can be conrolled with precision except for the extruder motor?

If i give him some order, there is a big delay waiting for the answer, and most of the time it just don't respond.

I use replicator g 025 with the arduino mega shield 1.5.x and the Built 1 Standard Relase firmware.

-When we generate gcode to print a normal cube, if i use my computer the extruder stepper don't work, if is done by a friend of mine, it does.

What are the important option to check?

-The ultimaker can't mantain the temperature during the print, and we have to say 260° to have 230°.

Thank you all.

1) Yes. The extrude button from RepG is kind of a hack job.

2) Most likely cause is the "dimension" plugin is off in Skeinforge.

3) That's odd. But upgrading to Marlin might help in this case.

Or, upgrade to SkeinPyPy:

Which will upgrade you to Marlin v1, is known to work with all default settings. And has a better printing interface (PrintRun) where the extrude buttons work instantly.

    • "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.
