hi, i have have been using my printer for a while now and mostly without any real big issues.
its a bit of a learning curve because its my first printer.
i have done some minor upgrades (ultrabase and teflon filament guide, and cooling fins on the heatbreak.).
the ultraBase gave me a bit of a hard time because i had some adhesion issues afterwards bit that mostly seems to be fixed now.
now the issue i need some help with is this:
i want to run a print at the highest possible resolution (so i was thinking 0.1 should be no problem)
(trying to print a moon lamp)
and usually my print starts of fine using a raft for added stability.
however after some time i start having extrusion issues and the extruder motor starts skipping.
printing at 210c with 50mm/s
now i have tried printing at various temperatures and the issue doesn't seem to be actual clogging of the nozzle because i can raise the hot-end and feed without issues.
just to be sure i even swapped out the stepper motor with a spare one i got from my supplier.
i also fiddled around with bed leveling and printing speeds (on the printers interface) but the issue seems to persist.
any advise is welcome.
Based on the original config-files that came from Anycubic, I've created new Configuration.h and Configuration_adv.h to make the printer run Marlin 2.0.0.
- download/use the Marlin branch "Marlin-bugfix-2.0.x" from marlinfw.org
- originally stepper motor for right Z-axis is connected to E2 output. To use this Firmware, connect right Z to output Z2. This frees the E2 port for future 2nd extruder
- stepper drivers are configured to be 4988 drivers (same as in original configuration)
- bed levelling is configured for manual mesh (9 points). Do a pre-calibration like suggested in Anycubic manual, make sure the nozzle is slightly above printbed after Z-home. Preheat hotend and start bed levelling from display knob.
- Ultrabase installed
This FW works for me and I'm happy to share. Keep in mind that you use it at your own risk.
Best wishes, Michael
I compiled the Marlin firmware versions up to 1.1.9 for the Anycubic printer and made them available via Github.
Feedback is appreciated :)
I was wondering how to check the installed Marlin Version or Firmware ? How to Update ?
Using the Printer now for 2 days... experimenting with some cura profiles now... first prints were OK... now they are way better.... but still i guess modifying firmware will make it better....
