Custom Heated Bed, Incorrect Temp, Max Temp Error & Controller Crash

Posted · Custom Heated Bed, Incorrect Temp, Max Temp Error & Controller Crash

I am in the process of installing a custom heated bed and am having a few problems.

I have installed a 4.7k Ohm resistor in R4, but am getting a MAXTEMP BED error. The temperature is changing, but is reading incorrectly (change is revered, temp goes down from 999 as it is heated).

Also, then I turn off the heated bed, I get some sort of spike in the system and the controller freaks out.

Ideas? I have h

Here is a video of basically what I just said:

 

Here is an extremely similar heated bed suggesting the 4.7k Ohm resistor:

The heated bed I actually got:

    Nope, I sure didn't! I just re-updated it with Cura.

    Googling that now....

    As for the crashing, I have traced that to the relay switch being too close to the controller. No a huge deal as I already have a solid state on the way.

    Easiest way is to look into how to use:

    http://marlinbuilder.robotfuzz.com/

    This will save you the trouble of figuring out what is need to recompile the firmware as the builder will do that part for you. You just need to supply the correct values.

    I'm sure there are many writeups on how to use ginge's builder but I'm sorry I don't have one to provide... Start with the correct template and you will be 98%-100% there...

    Alright... So I have the custom HEX file, but when I try to load it, it times out before loading any data. It leaves the controller in a locked state.

    If I then try the default firmware it loads fine.

    Am I missing something? The firmware is 281k.

      • 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
