Help me to calibrate printer..

Post#1 » Wed Nov 02, 2016 12:23 am

Hello
I am trying to tune the printer all day.
I watched the video and searched for setting but i haven't figure out it.
It is hard to know how can i change the setting.
I can little bit understand with Balance and fade but I do not know for others.
Can someone explain me or give me the link that i can read?
Also, can someone check my pics and tell me how do i have to do?
I tried several time but I still do not know why the top part is not printed.
Please help me guys :)

0.15 for Slope is very small, try 0.50. You might also shift the Fade up a bit from -0.1 to 0.0.

Also, there is more information available if you click the "?" and then click the item you have a question on (context sensitive help)

Also, your Z Home in printer settings is set to 10800 ....
The factory spec for the 1.2 machine is 10400
this alone would cause pieces to be heavier....

To check on this , use the question mark and click on the Z home and it will give you a choice of 3 settings for 3 machines. the 1.0, the 1.1 and the 1.2 which I believe to be 10400

Thank you for your infor
but it still failing top part.
as i read from direction.
it says if rear side is faillingm the balance should be adjusted towards the front.
so in my case, i think i need to adjust to negative. is that right?
I am using 1.2, i bought used one but i think it is factory assembly

looks like u need to move the Balance and Fade in the + direction. Start with .2 in the positive. If u have over cure u can back up (move in the negative). I would also increase the MSM by .10.

Do assume the table calibraiton is ok.
