newbee trying out the firmware on a (geeetech) g2s pro, and i got some problems.
hey guys and girls.
as said, newbee here. i own. a g2s pro now for a while. usually i'm quite handy but this printer has been tormenting me.. i started with the standard construction and calibration, during which i had some problems.
at the end i thought i was getting there (did a calibration print (temperature calibration) and went for the little boat thingy to calibrate even further. during which the printer went haywire.. top layers of the boat suddenly went not from vertically stacked into horizontally stacked.. so things weren't going right (marlin firmware).
wile i tried to solve this i wanted to try out the 2e print head, things went wrong again and yep. i broke a heat brake.
at that point i was a bit fed up. had exams. so put it away.. and after the exams. i build some nice speakers and amp, which took a long long time.
but now i started to fiddle a bit with some drones... and for this i would really like to get this printed functional.. i upgraded the hot end to two pcs of e3d v.6 clones. and got the to fit nicely.
started to do the calibration again. had some problems with the y-axis pillar but solved it. oh yeah i also changed he linear bearings to plastic once, pretty happy about those...
anyway. when i was nearly finished i found out about repetiers firmware (only knew about host) and saw a json file for the g2s on site.. so downloaded it. used it to mod the standard config a little due to the updated hotends and stuff and uploaded it all on the printer..
my first thought about it was.. is that my printer..? how sooth does it all run... amazing.
but that is where the joy stopped.
i have some problems. probably all to do with calibration (getting a but fedd up with calibrating, i wan to start printing) but anyway. my fault, to try to step over when nearly done. should've done it earlier. and because all is so smooth i'm not thinking about going back (or now)
so the problems..?
1) when i home.. it homes nicely.. but afterwards al the axis drop down afterwards. the z axis till the end switch releases. and the x and y axis drop down even further (9mm lower). the display keeps showing the height i entered (calibrated height under marlin) being 190.1, which it isn't of course as the all dropped down a little. as the x and y did more. it is also not centered anymore. (maybe the cause? )
i tried to move to the 1-2-3-4-and 5 point i setup under repetier host. but then the head crashed into the hotbed (not to happy there, since they are steel nozzles). also i (silly me) tried to start the bed height thing. but the print head went all the way outside of the print bed.. diameter en height.. far over shoot.
anyway. maybe it is one stupid not understood digit input or maybe it is more.
at this moment i'm to exhausted to think clearly so it's bed time.. maybe to morrow i will see the problem, but i kinda doubt it.
i'll post the json file and the config file here. maybe those are of some help.
-> planned to but can't add a file.. please explain to me how and i will post it tomorrow. for now i'll just add the text of the json file at the end. sorry it it will be to much.
--> planned to.. post became to long. really really time for bed..
will be really happy with some help.
thanks in advance.
kind greatings Matthieu
