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?

Weak prints all of a sudden

by frierson22

I've had my Tronxy for over a year now. I've learned a lot thru trial and error and have gotten some really good prints. I use Repetier slicer. A couple of days ago I started having problems with prints falling apart. I have tried changing filament, changing setting, changing temperature, changing models. I triple checked the bed level. When none of that worked I changed the nozzle thinking for sure that it was clogged. Still no luck. I can print flat on the bed OK, (see the green broom holder pic) but anything with any kind of wall or feature that builds up off the bed doesn't stick together. My last test was to try a desk top organizer that I printed successfully with the exact same settings and temp just a couple of weeks ago and it also failed. (see gray stringy pic). I don't know what is wrong. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks

New X5SA-500-2E owner.. upgrades? tweaks?

by 3D_Piper

I just finished building my X5SA-500-2E.
Several cables were too short (I have ordered extensions) and there are no filament runout sensors with cables (are those sensors generic?).
The bowden tubes were coiled so tight I can't get them to nicely arc over the drag chain. Can you straighten Bowden tubes, or is there another way to deal with that?
While I am waiting for these simple fixes, is there anything else I need to tweak from people who have already gone through all this?
I hope to get a wham bam flexible build plate.

Z offset on tronxy D01- "enable level comensation first"- Error

by Fluxxcomp

Brand new D01. When adding the glass plate the Z end stop is too high, so the nozzle touches the bed and I cannot tighten the level srews down far enough. How can I define Z offset? when choosing the menu "Z-offset" Display shows "enable level compensation first". How to do that?

Anybody here using a D01?

Thanks, Thomas

tronxy xy2 pro bed levelling sensor

by enery8

I have a problem in that I dismantled the hot end without marking the position of the bed levelling sensor. Can anyone please provide advise on how to retrieve the situation and reset the sensor so that it works. Thanks
