Re: Fill is ramping / pushing / stacking

Thanks for your suggestions. I actually have an AO-100 with all the upgrades. I think I solved it with adjusting my starting bed height a bit. I have been using the level bed with paper method. In this round.. for some reason I am going with the equivalent a thick paper setting. I ended up whipping ...

Re: Fill is ramping / pushing / stacking

Also, that is several layers up. The first layer looked like that but not as bad. That is a .95 fill. I adjusted to a .85 fill and it is better but it is not showing gaps, looks like a solid fill. I am assuming my top layers will bring back the ramping issue. (printing now) ; generated by Slic3r 0.9...

Fill is ramping / pushing / stacking

Pushing or ramping on fill. AO-101 with ABS. You can see the perimeters are nice an clean. Just replaced bushings and tightened all bolts. Noticed this ramping getting a bit worse. Tightened the belts. Belts took in hardly 1/2 tooth. Noticed no difference on the fill after tightening. Also checked f...

Re: Custom TAZ enclosure

I built larger boxes because I have the room and they fit nice with my racks. It is staying a nice 74F withe the extruder and bet up to temp. Eliminated my de-lamination issues with my cold shop. I can flip down the lower hinge and access the bed while not letting all the heat out. Material: acrylic...

Re: Y skip troubleshooting

I wanted to post an update with the problem resolved. After reading on Reprap forums. One suggestion was to cool the board if the stepper chips are getting hot. My stepper chips actually burnt my finger upon touch. Put a small fan on the board. I ave been printing great since the addition. Thanks fo...

Re: Y skip troubleshooting

You can simply reverse the stepper motor connector orientation to compensate for that when testing. Just flip it 180 degrees. Done, it heads the right direction. Then hits the stops and keeps trying to go. Duh, I did not swap the stops. So I swapped the x & y stops on the board. It still tries head...

Re: Y skip troubleshooting

I assume you are using a board with seperate stepper drives then? if so, just swap the X and Y drives and see if the problem follows the drive. I tried this unsuccessfully. I swapped the plugs, but it also reverses the direction movement for each axis. It looks for the stops and tries to throw the ...

Re: Y skip troubleshooting

there are really only 3 ways a stepper motor can skip steps. 1- it is commanded to move too quickly. (try the Mcode linked above to limit the max speed WAY slow). 2.- The belt or pulley slips. ( you seem to have that under control) 3.- There is something faulty in the electrical system (you are che...
