any chance the ultratronics pro v1.0 ethernet port is gonna be added in the dev version of the config tool?
This is a library for Arduino adding support for ENC424J600 chip
there are also links to the library's but i'm new to all of this and i don't know how to implement the modules or combining them to get it all work with the firmware download that i got using the configuration tool (1.9.2 dev).
It would be nice (for a next upgrade) to implement a choice in the config tool to use the ethernet port (just a thought).
As for the fact that you don't have a ultratronics board to test on? would it be helpfull that i donate you one in the near future? It would have to wait untill december because i just bought my second DIY delta.
Have a nice weekend Repetier :-)
all the diagonal rods were adjusted to the same length, 198.5mm horizontal radius is 164 and printable radius 105, all the offsets are measured and on the mega2560 and rumba board with marlin firmware everything worked fine. i even accomplished a bed levelling of 0.02mm with manual calibration and a micrometer clock installed instead of a print head. So you can see how i'm about getting a slight head pain out of this, lol. I really don't know what i am doing wrong. I also don't use the automatic bed levelling because it just failed to much in the past, i already spend a reasonable amount of time in mechanical perfecting the bed levelling to get it mechanically levelled.
At least you are showing interest in the whole matter, for the marlin fw i had to figure out everything on my own, i needed over a week just to figure out how to compile the damn thing, lol
Thanks for quick responses
All the measurements are from centerpoint to centerpoint.
As i noticed, the Z steps per mm are the only ones showing when connecting through repetier protocol in repetier host. The repetier host i am using is the latest one. and i have the repetier-server pro 0.86.2 running too.
I'll continue the measurements during next week and i will keep you informed.
Great that you contacted the ultratronics guys, i hope you can get a board from them, would be a huge advantage when you can actually test it yourself.
Solved the radius issue on my ultratronics-repetier build, when i set the slider and carriage parameters with - values like -20 then i have full and accurate movement on all axes.
Next problem, the bed center on the arm movents results in a higher position then moving away from center so i get bed touching around 50mm moving x or y but in the middle it is at + 0.5mm.
Where or which parameters need to be adjusted?
Thanks again for all the help
Printing a 20x20x20 testcube right now to see how much the movements are off
aaah ok that way, thanks, this helps me a lot.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction :-)
i suppose the variable you are talking about is calculated somewhere in the driver.h file? but i try first the way of changing diagonal and hor radius.
I think it was in Marlin that they actually calculated the variable in config.h
with this line
// Horizontal distance bridged by diagonal push rods when effector is centered.#define DELTA_RADIUS (DELTA_SMOOTH_ROD_OFFSET-DELTA_EFFECTOR_OFFSET-DELTA_CARRIAGE_OFFSET+1)
At the end of the line "+1" is adjustable to compensate the dig/dive error
Yes i worked with Marlin before but for some reason i can't compile it to work on the Ultratronics board. That is why i switched to Repetier in the first place.
Thanks again Repetier, finally got the axes levelled out as the should be.
Slight adjustment is still needed but now it got it from 4mm to 0.2mm on the entire surface, so i guess for just manual levelling it is coming all together a bit at a time, instead of working before the decimal point i can start again after it.
Thanks again for all your time and patience.
