    Question What do the beeps mean?

    The Tech 1 makes a number of different beeping sounds during printing, but they are not documented anyplace. Has anyone figured out what the different sounds are for? Some are obvious like extruder temp setpoint reached, but others, especially during printing, happen seemingly without cause. Any ideas?

    I hadn't figured out the midpirnt beeps either. They don't make any sense.

    I think they are still related to the heaters turning on and off.

    lol You mean all the noises that sound like R2D2 ?

    They are actually made by the stepper motors. All they mean is that your printer is working and the motors they are a spinning !
    I really like them - they give 3d printers a unique audible character :-)

    Different beeps. Beeps when you turn it on. Beeps when it gets up to temp. Beeps when it starts printing. Beeps when it is done printing. The beeps in the middle of the print is the weird ones.
