Horizontal lines on walls

by DorinDXN

---------8<------------------
Update, added mini (30 minutes) micro (15 minutes) and nano (10 minutes) print variant to ADT, if you want to test to see if the issue is on your CR-10 too, will be of great help to see a perfect print on this made on CR-10, it will bring a hope for cure :)

Hello everyone, just joined , nice to meet you all :)

I have a little problem with some Horizontal lines on walls, I saw it on other than mine prints on Internet as well and tried to address it on my CR-10.

I even designed a test object which exhibits those lines here https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3625305
or you can see the problem in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjmVtYRaEZk
I tried many things with no success in getting rid of them, it seems to depend on geometry of the object rather than temperature, flow rate, infill, so on... My CR-10 is quite in good shape, and I take care to have no play to be clean, lubricated and calibrated as well.

I can use an idea or two, where to investigate further, maybe the video ring a bell to some expert here :)
Much appreciate if she/he does share a thought about this issue.

thanks,
Dorin

CR-10S with Mainboard V2.2 BL Touch

by davehuber312

I have a CR-10S with mainboard V2.2.
I purchased a BLTouch kit which includes various USB programming cables and adapters to fit on a Creality V 1 board.
I'm not getting much assistance from the Ebay seller i purchased from.
Question is, I found a diagram for installing BLTouch on what appears to be a V2 mainboard on a Youtube Video by user First Layer. Should I just install according to the diagram?
Has anyone seen a kit for install on V2 mainboard? What is the difference?
I'm up for a challenge hooking up as in diagram, but want to confirm that will be sufficient.
Procedure for Marlin upgrade appears to be similar for both boards, as far as I can determine.
What experiences should I know about before embarking?
Thanks!
Dave

CR10s Bed leveling after heated and before heated

by WinstonKoo

Hi guys! I got a CR10 S5. I know that having a big print surface means more trouble on bed leveling. But I found I thing on the CR10 that is interesting. When I first got the printer I always leveling the bed when everything is cold. After that I tried to level the bed when the bed is heated. Then I tried to leveling the bed when both bed and hot end is heated, because I found my hot end after heated will expand toward the bed a lot. However, after the I start printing with the measurement of bot bed and hotend heated. the hotend will get too hight. So... I'm wondering is there any setting with the printer or g code that tell the printer get Z higher to overcome the thermal expansion? I really want to disable this setting. BTW I'm using CURA.
