Hey, so having received some great advice on my fan adapter thread I though I’d look to get my sonic pad setup and tuned a bit before taking on anything bigger and so far its going well.
With a Calibration Cube print I’m getting +/- 0.05mm average between last 3 tries at x = 20.07mm, y = 20.03mm and z = 20.03mm which from what I’m reading seems to be good results and I’m pretty happy with the corner and wall print quality so all is good… except a blob!
I seem to be getting a blob where the print is finishing so I’m not sure if its related to the nozzle staying at that point for too long after the print or not retracting enough?
I think you’ve pointed me in the right place, I’ve copied the recommended end g-code as provided in the profiles for the Sonic Pad but some of it doesn’t copy right and in a few places it pasted in over two lines which split some of the commands and initially caused issues in the printing as it was seeing them as bad instructions.
I’ve just taken another look and there is a line:
G1 Z0.2 E2 F2400
which should be
G1 Z0.2 E-2 F2400
so I’m presuming that E-2 is tell it to retract -2 and the way I have it is its extruding 2 instead and giving me an extra blob of unwanted filament on the top. Looks like it just didnt copy the minus from the PDF correctly. The whole end g-code as it stands is so I’m thinking its just a case of updating to include the minus on the E2 and it will be happy.
