Repetier-Firmware Settings

Here are the settings I used for my setup.

Code: Select all
#define ENDSTOP_PULLUP_X_MIN true
#define ENDSTOP_PULLUP_Y_MIN true
#define ENDSTOP_PULLUP_Z_MIN true
#define ENDSTOP_PULLUP_X_MAX true
#define ENDSTOP_PULLUP_Y_MAX true
#define ENDSTOP_PULLUP_Z_MAX true
#define ENDSTOP_X_MIN_INVERTING false
#define ENDSTOP_Y_MIN_INVERTING false
#define ENDSTOP_Z_MIN_INVERTING false
#define ENDSTOP_X_MAX_INVERTING false
#define ENDSTOP_Y_MAX_INVERTING false
#define ENDSTOP_Z_MAX_INVERTING false
#define MIN_HARDWARE_ENDSTOP_X true
#define MIN_HARDWARE_ENDSTOP_Y true
#define MIN_HARDWARE_ENDSTOP_Z true
#define MAX_HARDWARE_ENDSTOP_X false
#define MAX_HARDWARE_ENDSTOP_Y false
#define MAX_HARDWARE_ENDSTOP_Z false
#define INVERT_X_DIR true
#define INVERT_Y_DIR true
#define INVERT_Z_DIR true
#define X_HOME_DIR -1
#define Y_HOME_DIR -1
#define Z_HOME_DIR -1
#define min_software_endstop_x false
#define min_software_endstop_y false
#define min_software_endstop_z false
#define max_software_endstop_x false
#define max_software_endstop_y false
#define max_software_endstop_z false
#define ENDSTOP_X_BACK_MOVE 5
#define ENDSTOP_Y_BACK_MOVE 5
#define ENDSTOP_Z_BACK_MOVE 5
#define ENDSTOP_X_RETEST_REDUCTION_FACTOR 2
#define ENDSTOP_Y_RETEST_REDUCTION_FACTOR 2
#define ENDSTOP_Z_RETEST_REDUCTION_FACTOR 2
#define ALWAYS_CHECK_ENDSTOPS true
#define X_MAX_LENGTH 3000
#define Y_MAX_LENGTH 3000
#define Z_MAX_LENGTH 3000
#define X_MIN_POS -3000
#define Y_MIN_POS -3000
#define Z_MIN_POS -3000
#define MAX_INACTIVE_TIME 0
#define MAX_FEEDRATE_X 200
#define MAX_FEEDRATE_Y 200
#define MAX_FEEDRATE_Z 200
#define HOMING_FEEDRATE_X 80
#define HOMING_FEEDRATE_Y 80
#define HOMING_FEEDRATE_Z 80
#define MAX_ACCELERATION_UNITS_PER_SQ_SECOND_X 400
#define MAX_ACCELERATION_UNITS_PER_SQ_SECOND_Y 400
#define MAX_ACCELERATION_UNITS_PER_SQ_SECOND_Z 400
#define MAX_TRAVEL_ACCELERATION_UNITS_PER_SQ_SECOND_X 400
#define MAX_TRAVEL_ACCELERATION_UNITS_PER_SQ_SECOND_Y 400
#define MAX_TRAVEL_ACCELERATION_UNITS_PER_SQ_SECOND_Z 400
#define MAX_JERK 20.0
#define MAX_ZJERK 20.0
#define EEPROM_MODE 1


Depending on your setup some of these values may need to be changed. In actuality I tweak the stepper direction until all the arms contract when you increase the position.

Steps per mm

Postby Guizmo » Thu Feb 13, 2014 9:39 pm

I just got an important question. How many steps per mm should we set and where? I don't see that in the table.

Thanks

You need to calibrate them. Give them placeholder values. Find the real and virtual distance between two positions. From there I adjust the placeholder steps/mm by multiplying by (virtual/real). I will try to remember to get the values I have when I get home. However, after we put in calibration data for each arm this will cease to be as important.

The number I came up with is 123.622 for X and Z and 121.260 steps/mm for Y. I have not seen Nicholas' number but apparently they are very similar. I can almost touch the bed at (133,133,133) while I see in his Segmentize positions list that he is very close at (133.2,133.2,133.1). So, while every machine could have a diferent number, this will put you in the ballpark.

@Nicholas

Can you please tell us your slicer settings please?

I've been having a lot of issues and I believe they're related to the slicing settings. I got to follow an example that works until I find my onw best settings.

Thanks

I use the default settings for the most part.

.4mm nozzle
195C hot end temp
70 bed temp
Set middle of the build area to 0,0
.2mm layer height
~.25 infill
retraction depends on the drag in the bowden tube~ Mine is at 1.5-2mm

If I touch anything else it is to slow down the speeds. During testing, I often set all the speed categories down to 30mm/s.
