Is there any manual on the X5SA touch panel commands?

by RoboDLC

I have sorted out most of the screen commands for my TronXY X5SA. But some baffle me. On my firmware, for instance, the "TPAdjust" gives me a blank screen, so I guess that does nothing. But, what does "default" do? I am guessing that it clears all user settings like the Z-point, maybe temperature auto sets. I have replaced my inductive Z sensor with a mechanical switch that emulates the voltages levels for un-triggered and triggered. I'd like to remove any other Z-height settings I have made, I THINK that Default will do that. Is that the consensus, or has anyone managed to pry a real manual from the TronXY people that actually helps?

Many thanks,

Tronxy x5sa keeps pushing the print bed up into the nozzle...

by FFaruq

...and it doesn't stop. I have to switch it off.

I bought this Tronxy x5sa off a friend. Was fully working. I had to replace the hotend which I did. The hardware is all fine. Just something amiss with the software, and as a total noob to 3d printing I can't work it out. Tinkering with the hardware has been easier for me. This is doing my head in.

This 'grinding' of the bed into the nozzle happens either [A] whenever I start printing a gcode I've made in cura (there must be some settings amiss but they seem fine), but [B] also happens when I select Z-offset on the printer controls. Before I can manually adjust the head/nozzle moves right round the 'outside' of the bed, then moves in and raises the bed into the nozzle, till again, I exit or manually stop it. The bed is full of big dents now and I'm pretty fed up with it all.

Hope someone can help. Much appreciated.

G-Code to pause & change filament

by ljbrumfield

Does anyone have some G-code they can copy and paste so I can edit to pause a print to change filament? Like pause.... go home.... (I change the filament) Resume (How would I resume?)... Go somewhere and prime the new color and start printing again. I have an X5S with Marlin firmware SHORT_BUILD_VERSION "1.1.6". I use Slic3r through Repetier Host. Thanks in advance....

CURA 4.6.1 profile/settings for TronXY X5SA?

by 3D_Piper

Does anyone have a good CURA 4.6.1 profile for X5SA?
I saw this post: https://old.reddit.com/r/3Dprinting/comments/eg01yo/tronxy_x5sa_need_help_with_cura_441_setting/
But it looks like there are some new options (see attached). Heated build volume?
