Extruder constantly clicking during printing

by cembellines

Hi All,

I have started using this printer 3 days ago. I am still to finish any print, it always runs out of filament. II am attaching some pics of the benchis. The extruder makes a constant noise like it is skipping but I cant see any skipping. I think that is the issue, it finally runs out of filament due to this struggle. I have tried so many settings I am convinced settings are not the issue. I had a A6 for a year so I am not a total newbie. I have a video showing the clicking in the link below. Do you guys have the same noise? Any ideas are welcome thanks.

y carriage plate (h plate)

by marbro

I dont have an anet e12, but i was wondering if anyone knew where the h plate could be found in the states. The only thing ive found is slovakian website/ ebay reseller.
Basically my project is doing an anet a8 to am8 and upgrading the bed size using the e12 bed. I cant seem to find a schematic for the h-plate or even a place that sells it (other than the slovakian place).
If i have to mock up a schematic and take it to a local place, i guess thats what i will have to do, but i was hoping someone might be able to help here.

ANET E12 problem with Z axis

by jejemorg

Hello,
I'm now using an ANET E12 since 6 months.
I have installed a carriage plate ligther and less flexible than the original one, changed the fans and installed a real BL-Touch.
I've experienced differents problems and always solved.
But my last problem is when my 3D print is finished, I always ahve a gap between the two Z axis, the left one is always lower than the right about 1 cm.
I have checked all nuts on both Z motors.
Something I sucpect strange is when motors just after a move should be unereleasable, the Z ones can be forced...

Thanks for your help.

Bed leveling issues?

by deegan

Hi guys, I have a E12 and for the life of me, I can't level the bed at all. I replaced the H brace with a 1/8" aluminum plate hoping that will fix it but it has not. Anyone else have issue getting a level bed? I checked the hot plate and its not warped. With the printer homed, I used digital calipers to make sure the z axis is level to the frame. I'm at my whits end as the most I can get level is barely three corners and not the fourth corner. I am in the process of upgrading to a BLtouch.

My plan is to purchase a regular Anet A8 V 1.0 RAMPS 1.4 board and flash it to the latest Marlin 1.1.8. to get auto leveling as I don't want to try flashing my current board in case it gets bricked and there are no sources for the V2 boards that I can find. Just wanted to see if anyone else is having issues or if I'm just the lucky one.
