    Not usually much chance of success, but check around the screen edges for bits of grit, loose plastic, etc that are registering as a “touch”. Most of those screens can only see one touch at a time,...

    I had a discussion with the administrators a while back.

    Digging around a bit, the main problem with this forum is that the authentication systems (Captchas, that sort of thing) are well out of...

    Can't help with Cura. Haven't used it in ages, but under Prusaslicer, you:

    Z-auto align is a very nice feature. It works very well with UBL too.

    Another thing in Marlin you might like is the ability to speed things up a little bit (change filament, print, etc) by setting...

    It doesn’t intrude into the print volume. Just makes the Bowden shorter.

    If you can use Nylon+Carbon Fibre or Nylon + Glass Fibre, then it actually makes the printing much easier. Those can typically be printed without an enclosure and at reasonable temps (245-260/85).

    If you've got a computer plugged in, or can run and view Gcode through the screen, M119 will show the state of endstops.

    Yeah, there is.
    There should be an option in the menus, usually under "motion" or something similar, which homes all axes.
    The Gcode for that is G28.

    Be careful when you run that command. Make...

    Visual Studio is the IDE/compiler. it's used for all sorts of things, but one thing it's well set up for it compiling Marlin.

    The sapphire plus may include independent z drivers and dual endstops (though that is version dependant). That should make tramming the bed very simple using either g34 and the bltouch, or the...

    Zortrax or Voron would be top of my list. However, most enclosed printers that can get to the right temps (so no ptfe lined hotend) will be pretty similar. The very best would be ones with a bed like...

    It's quite common for these cheaper printers to have the fan terminals reversed. Pop the crimps for the fan's plug out, reverse them and see if that works.

    Nifty.

    Consider buying the rods. Dowel and other materials will likely be quicker and stronger than 3D printed parts. For the dodecahedral balls, I'd usually use a tolerance of 0.05 - 0.075mm for...

    38 watts shouldn’t be a problem. E3d actually switched to 30w so they don’t melt the aluminium heatblock in case of runaway, and they’ll still cruise past 300°C.

    Possibly not too useful, but I did have a printer that had a firmware bug that would screw up the PID if the X and Y axis steps/mm were adjusted.

    It’s definitely in the cura settings. You may have to tell cura your printer has a heated bed before they are visible.
