auto level question

by techevil

hiya guys, im sure im not the first person to be disappointed with the rather flawed design of the auto level system on the tarantula. while I have a wonderful solution for it in the works that ill post the stl files for, I ran across one more issue. I attempted to use the magnetic print bed I bought online, but the stock autolevel apparently is looking for the metal base. has anyone found a decent proximity sensor that responds to any surface that will work with the tarantula? if so please let me know, im open to all suggestions.

Weird corners on small areas

by Adam_French

I have been tuning in my settings for a while and have nearly all settings correct, but a new problem has just appeared. When I printed a benchy, everything was okay, up to the windows and door area. Some edges seem to have 'rolled' into the part and melted. I don't know if this is a problem due to speed, overheating, or cooling. There are no articles I could find online about it, so I hope someone on here might know what s causing it. Thanks so much in advance.

Anyone know Tevo Titan direct extruder step size?

by Sndgjaytr

can someone please tell me what's the step size for the Tevo Titan extruder direct drive? I have mine calibrated for Bowden setup but I forgot to recalibrate again when I switched to direct drive. Other than removing the nozzle.. Im hoping that someone can give me their numbers so I can start from there.

Thanks!
