Filament Change - Problem

by JoJo800


im using Simplify + the latest TinyMachine Firmware. Pause at Layer xy and changing the Filament works fine, while connected via USB (using the Resume Print Button in Simplify) but the same Gcode on the SD Card don't work. The Printer pause the print correctly and move to the pause-position but there is no "Resume the Print" Button??!!
So i cannot resume and nothing works...

Can anyone help me to solve the problem?

Kind Regards

Auto Level Homing Failed

by bigo93

So I upgraded my capacitive sensor to an inductive sensor.

However now my printer ends up with a homing failed error message during the autolevel measuring setup.

It does the first two points fine, but come the 3rd one, the sensor's light comes on, but it continues to move the nozzle down.
It actually crashes it into the bed and digs it in! before moving back up and giving the homing error.

It has manages to complete the level a couple times.
I am testing the printer before I make any irreversible changes which will invalidate my warranty.
So with each change I redo the bed level

It doesnt make sense, why is doing that?
If it is a fault sensor, then why does it work for the first 2 spots, or the previous times when it completed properly?

Any ideas?

Replacing Inductive Sensor with Limit Switch

by JGecik

Is it possible to replace the inductive sensor on the Z axis with a regular limit switch? This thing is driving me nuts and I feel like I'd be better off with a hard limit switch and just monkeying with the adjustment screws and offsets.

I have tried to print from micro SDd and I can do that for the testfiles which came olong with the machine.
But nothing else. Why?

Z-axis sensor repeatability poor

by kayakingphotos

Are others having issues with the repeatability of the z-axis? Its pretty much a guarantee that I'll have to manually adjust the offset for every print I do. I've tried with both the original build surface (which was not the flattest...) and a glass mirror. Even when I leave the printer on between prints it will not be very accurate.
