Stepper Calibration


Recommended Posts

Posted · Stepper Calibration

I have a Tronxy XY 3SE and I would like to print a puzzle box. Up to this point my prints have not needed the precision required of a puzzle box. So I am now I have the need to calibrate the stepper motors. I have read I need to first obtain printer settings by sending the printer an M503. Can this be accomplished using Cura 4.12.1?

    You will need to get Printrun/Pronterface in order to see the response from the printer.  You can send a command from Cura but you cannot see the response.

    On most printers the XYZ are really close to exact from the factory.  The Extruder often needs to be calibrated but the other three don't.

        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.
