I've finished my Hadron build, except for one little problem

Postby k4mg » Wed Apr 10, 2013 12:12 am

I have correct movement when using Repetier-Host to move my x, y, or z axis, either direction, and can home with no problem. If I load and try to air-extrude the print, the Y axis suddenly only goes in the positive direction. This is totally mystifying me.

I am using the latest versions of Marlin and Repetier-Host and slic3r. I have tried every combination of setting changes, and cannot seem to understand what can be wrong. My endstop wires are twisted. I am using Ramps1.4 from RRD,

Following is a link to my Marlin config in case that is where the problem is:

And here is my Slic3r config:

Any help would be appreciated.

Barry

I could have something to do with limit switches or possibly the X0, Y0 of your printer vs what slicer think you printer looks like.

Do you use limit switches?

Thank you Bart for replying. I have 3 home switches, and I can use them successfully to home the machine. My machine can print 195x205x185, and I have set that in the Marlin Config mentioned above, and also in Repetier-Host to the same numbers.

I have been working on this one issue since the 30th, with no resolution, so any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Try typing

G1 X100 F6000

Then

G1 X50

In the G Code box of the Manual Control tab of Rep Host. It should move over in x then back half way.

After you start an air build and X starts moving, can you stop it by tripping the endstop/limit switch with your finger?

EDIT: I meant Y in the first post, sorry, corrected above and here.

@Bart
Typing:
G1 Y100 F6000 moves the plate forward 100mm
G1 Y50 moves back 50mm

@blah_59
Activating the Y home switch does nothing, Y still goes in the wrong direction for the return of the box.

I have posted my Slic3r config in case it helps:

Post about the first 30 lines of a simple part's gcode from slic3r.

Which RAMPS controller do you have? Arduino+shield? Integrated board?

What kit did you end up with? I'm wondering what belts and pulleys you are running.

Also, type M119 - this will tell you the status of your endstops. Then activate each by hand and re-type the command and make sure the status chances are properly reported.

@Bart
I am printing the hollow_cube.stl file I got with my first 3d printer kit (Prusa Mendel). I printed it a few times before as part of calibrating my Prusa. Here is some g-code:
