Excellent. I know the config utility well. Just figured why search through my current firmware for numbers if someone already did it...

Are you actually using Jam detection?

Also, how good are these PID settings? I'm using the same sensors.

No, is that configured in this file?

There are values entered and I don't see a tic to enable it, which probably means anything other than 0 means it's active.

PID settings also look very wrong for the heated bed (assuming you are using the stock heater/glass.

This is from the Marlin firmware - and is pretty good

Code: Select all

#ifdef PIDTEMPBED
//24V 360W silicone heater from NPH on 3mm borosilicate (TAZ 2.2+)
    #define  DEFAULT_bedKp 162
    #define  DEFAULT_bedKi 17
    #define  DEFAULT_bedKd 378

Sorry! False alarm! It gets disabled in the extruder settings.

Great. I can't imagine the QRs jamming! I've had more success with these extruders (now on 4 of my printers and working to print mounts for the remaining 2) than any other. Not a single jam or even close yet. And the Cyclops is a difficult hot end to push filament through.

I'm going for basically the same setup as you for the taz. Minus z probe and I'm buying the hardware kit for the extruders and I'll print my own plastic bits.

What I need is a reliable dual hot end. My research has shown the bondtech extruders are the best, most reliable design.

Did you see my note about your pid settings?

Hmm. I am using the stock heater. I do have a sheet of PEI. I did not retune it but the bed seems stable enough.
