    How to accurately calibrate your 3D Printer

    Hi, thanks for the reply.The changes took in Repetier. Meaning "took hold" just a shortened way to say it.To expound. After inputting values, they showed as excepted in the g-code in Reptier.I didn't see you had to also save it the values by typing in M500, my bad there.I thought since they showed they were saved in Repetier g-code window that was it...So once I tried moving it, the two different settings were obviously conflicting and the stepper motor went nuts, whining loudly. Freaking out... and me with it. lol.Ok try again using M500 to save it to the printer chip. See what happens... though I'm nervous about it I will admit. The suggested way by Geeetech is to open the firmware in Aurdino(sp?), make the change, upload the new firmware with changes to the printer.

The suggested way by Geeetech is to open the firmware in Aurdino(sp?), make the change, upload the new firmware with changes to the printer. That saves it.Your way is much easier. I'm just hoping it works for mine, the way it does for yours.- chase -

    How to accurately calibrate your 3D Printer

    Hi, No actually I didn't type in M500.I tried just moving one of the axis after changing everything. (Minus M500 to save) and my printer freaked out. I had to hit emergency stop to shut it down. Which freaked me out... =-O!The stepper motor was screaming like it was running at high speed.Once I rebooted, it was fine again. I did try one more time and it did the same thing.I don't want to ruin my printer or burn out a motor before I even get going. I'm sure you understand.The changes took in Repetier, but apparently, not the firmware. Which I take it there was a conflict between the firmware and Repetier settings which caused it to freak out.A little hesitant to try it again. As stated, I don't want to ruin my printer.

    How to accurately calibrate your 3D Printer

    When I type in M501 in Repetier, it states it's loaded all defaults, which resets all the calibration changes back to default. If I type M503 after entering them into the G-Code, it does show the change has been made.Geeetech i3 Pro BWhy is yours different? Mine uses Marlin v1

    Thanks for that update about using M503 to get the parameters to display. I had the same issue when trying it as instructed. (Geeetech i3 Pro B)

  • Coming from Pro grade 3D modeling apps to 123D or MeshMaker, there's no comparison. And anyone saying otherwise hadn't used pro grade.3D apps extensively.Despite that, people do use them. Personally, I walked away from them after a very short time because quite honestly, they lack quite a bit, and are a pain in the butt to model with.

    It's funny to see this because as it happens I found two 358 cal bullet shells on the street with a gold/silver polished finish. I picked them up and saved them, I guess I like shiny things. I was wondering what I could use them for since I didn't use use them for my first idea. (thumb pads on an RC LP controller)
