Posted (edited) · Bondtech DDG on UM2 Extended

Hello guys, greetings.

So, I am using Tinkergnome V17.10.1 (which I believe is the latest stable version) in a UM2 extended upgraded with a Bondtech DDG (with a adaptation piece found on YouMagine). I'm having two problems:

1)Once in a while my Printer inverts all the axis out from the blue, no clues whatsoever why it is happening, I have to factory reset it, and start all over again (and dialing all the steps again);

2) I am using the stock 0,9º extruder stepper motor, and since I installed the Bondtech extruder, depending on the nozzle temp, I get heavy and frequent losing steps. I have a feeling that I was using lower temps incorrectly (for the PLA brand - Brazil, so it's unlikely you would know it). Once I step temps up it gets on track, although I was not able to notice if it is affecting the print quality (dear strings).

Any ideas?

Is it better to install a newer Tinkergnome software? 

Thank a lot in advance.
