Use my gcode and my pen mount.September 4, 2019 at 10:47 am #112002
thanks but i did use your gcode and pen mount. sd card too. using a rambo programmed with dual endstops purchased from V1 recently.September 4, 2019 at 10:54 am #112003
Do you have another thread about this same thing? I prefer to stay in that thread if this is true.September 4, 2019 at 10:59 am #112004
I think you’re getting this post conflated with Tony DAngelo’s thread(s). Both were/are having issues with the crown getting a bit out of sorts. A quick check of rick’s activity shows that this is his first thread regarding the crown plot.September 4, 2019 at 11:06 am #112005
Okay. I honestly can’t think of a single way this could happen with my code and mount other than too much pen pressure or a very unlevel build.
Other code or mounts is a whole different thing.September 4, 2019 at 11:41 am #112011
thanks for your reply.
the above person had a crown with my issues too –> 1 and 2 don’t match and 3 and 4 are different widths.
I spent a lot of time adjusting pen pressure which is tedious because your gcode tries to go into the bed a tiny bit when it actually starts drawing. so in the end, pen pressure was very light.
with all that said, that leaves a “very unlevel build” – does that mean my bed (where the paper lies) isn’t level or one corner is higher than another? what exactly does that mean? just trying to figure out where i go from here – thanks again for any help!September 4, 2019 at 12:06 pm #112014
here may be another clue?
his crown is my crown but his is on steroids. what happens if my right Y belt (is that “Y2”?) isn’t as tight as my left Y belt?September 4, 2019 at 12:43 pm #112018
So those both had a non working side. Loose pulley and a non working stepper. Have you taken off the belts to verify all are working as they should in the correct direction?September 5, 2019 at 5:20 am #112129
I’ll do that this weekend. will report back – thank you for your help.September 5, 2019 at 7:47 am #112140
Per another thread, are you using a fixed-barrel pen, or a “clicky” pen for your test? The play in pen itself could be causing issues.
