Is there a way to calculate the step instant of trial an error ?

As for the extruder, I tested it yesterday, if I extrude 10mm, I got exactly 10mm. But maybe I dont have the right setting (like nozzle size, etc...). I just started it to see if it could work. If you look on the background you'll see the bowden cable got disconnected cause the nozzle was clogged (I had no fan... I guess it's the reason). Do I need to ajust the "speed" of the exturder or it will go slower if needed and it's just a "maximum" ?

the adjustment you need to make for size of parts (once you have your Z correct) is the delta rod length. You can use Rich's M666 command for that. The formula is (measured length/specified length) x delta rod length = new delta rod length

I got your message too by the way. I actually posted a response last night but it's got lost somewhere. I'm away from home this week. I'll work out a price when I'm back.

Sounds like 4 seasons of my amateur racing hobby...except that I was too exhausted to eat after changing tires thee and four times per day in the heat.

When are you going to make the CP IV that fold up and fits in your suitcase????? smiling smiley

Hi Andy
Printer is running well but I'm after a favour smiling smiley
I am wanting to make some changes to the effector and the j-head clamp as i find the mounting holes for the fan and the spring system for the z-probe a bit fragile.
Is it possible to get a copy of your sketch up files for them so i can make some modifications please. I know i can import the stl files into sketch up but its a pain dealing with all the extra facets created that way.

Thanks in advance

Hi Guys

I've been working on a system to negate the need for magnets but still retain the benefits of their anti backlash and quick disconnect properties. I saw a post a while ago where a maker had used strings to hold the effector and the rods together. Heres what I've come up with :-

I chose to use Spectra line (100lb breaking strain) and springs. The springs came in a box of assorted springs from Ebay. I modified my J Head effector and the CP III rod carrier to have 8mm 'cups' to accept some 8mm stainless steel ball bearings I found on Ebay that have a 4mm diameter hole, or socket, drilled in them to a depth of 4mm. The aluminium tube I already use for the magnetic rods on CP III have an ID of 4mm and I sourced some 4mm brass tube to act as connectors between the ball bearing and the rod ends. I secured it all with a dab of CA but as it's all held in tension it's not really required (makes assembly easier though).

Components :-


Assembly :-



I tied a loop of Spectra 130mm long to the end of one of the springs and secured the loop knot with a dab of CA. I also covered the knot with a bit of heat shrink sleeve but it's purely cosmetic. I used a small length of coffee stirrer stick to ensure the loops on each of the three springs were the same size :-




The end effector has a hole in the face between the rod 'cups' through which I passed the end of the loop of Spectra. There is a hole on the under side that accepts a small self tapping screw and the loop just goes around the head to secure the string to the effector. The carriage end of the spring has a small piece of stainless steel wire that passes through the hole in between the rod carriage rod 'cups' and is simply bent, once passed through the hole, flat to form a hook. The wire needs to be quite stiff to hold the tension. I used aircraft locking wire.



Once the effector is 'strung' you can pull against the tension of the spring to insert the rods. Each pair will hold firmly but a single rod will pop out if you let go. It's a bit tricky but once you get the hang of it it goes very smoothly.



The end result is a VERY firmly attached effector :-



I am so pleased with this arrangement that it's going to be my standard method going forwards. All the new parts are drop in replacement for the standard Cherry Pi III so if you want to convert it's really easy.

Is better than the magnet? Seems more complicated to me, but I finds the magnet doesn't seems to have the same force between one and two, so that would eliminate that problems, plus you don't need new magnet if you change the effector.

Quote me on this one instant.

If I understand right, rods and ball need to be the same size, but the wire / spring can vary, as long as it's tight enought to hold everything in place? If yes, it's less complicated that I was thinking smiling smiley

btw, when my printer will be done, I'll be trying to use a 110V heatbed with an SSR from Keenovo ( [www.keenovo.com] ). 40$ for 300W 200mm dia, 3M stick PSA on glass, NTC Thermistor (custom order). I'll give more info on the setup when I'll be there! smiling smiley

The new string-spring plan looks like a good one!
Is the change due to some problem with the magnet plan, or is it more to simplify the design? I haven't quite finished my printer yet, so haven't had a chance to explore the limitations of the magnets.

Also, I see what you've done with the spring-loaded hotend--placing a cross bar to get both springs on there. I've been struggling with a good implementation for mine, and this new idea looks like a good one. Thanks!

Oh, and I like the coffee cup, too. smiling smiley

A thought that occurred to me while I was building my printer was that if the pivot-points for the arms (was magnets, now balls) were located higher up on those carriages, it'd be possible to get some more height for a given frame size. I toyed with the idea of flipping the carriages upside down, but of course the hinge wasn't designed that way.

So my question: is there a reason, other than aesthetic, that the magnets are placed at the bottom of the carriages?

It was actually a bit of both. I've had issues getting a regular supply of 10mm magnets that weren't horrendously expensive. The low quality magnets haven't been quite as strong that has led to a couple of times when the rods have let go when homing (never during a print though) I slowed the homing speed a bit and that cured it but I felt there must be a better way. This way is definitely better, and cheaper and easier to manufacture. Win, win, win :-)

The cup was from my niece. Very bright girl !!!

That's a really good idea. It would give about 40mm more build height. Damn. I can feel Cherry Pi IV coming on. Seriously I'll give it some thought. It would be easier to implement with the magnets. The springs I use are quite powerful and really need the plastic at the back to prevent the sockets breaking loose. There must be a way though.

Hi Lines11

I can't see anything obviously wrong in your config, but I'm not really familiar with that version. I use Rich's v1.4. A couple of your delta values are not configured with decimal points and I think they need to be :-

// Horizontal offset of the universal joints on the end effector.
#define DELTA_EFFECTOR_OFFSET 32 // mm

// Horizontal offset of the universal joints on the carriages.
#define DELTA_CARRIAGE_OFFSET 40 // mm

You could try recompiling with 32.0 and 40.0

The symptoms you describe are usually down to incorrect delta radius, like you I always adjust delta smooth rod offset.

Have you seen this website [minow.blogspot.co.uk] it's the one I normally refer to for calibration issues

Ok, i'll Check this tomorrow.
Thank you for your fast answer.
I saw your last posts, maybe that will solve my
Problem, because I saw that one rod lost conntact with the magnet ball,
When I drive to a position far away from x0,y0, like y80 x30 or something like that.
I think I reassemble a line, but I like to use the magnet balls anyway.
Where are the endstop positions in marlin saved, when I adjust them with m666, sorry for my lot questions and for my english smiling smiley. I can't find the most informations in German.

The endstop positions are saved in EEPROM. Your English is much better than my German !!!!

Hi here are a few pic´s of my cp and the repstrap who made it.
Is it possible to look in eeprom?

Looks good. Love the repstrap. Very substantial!

You can see the values in EEPROM with M501, and if you run Rich Cattell's Marlin with M666 L

Or in Repetier Host, directly in the top Menu, there's a EEPROM option.

Thank you,
i never used reptier till now, i think i have to. i readjusted my cp now with m666 its much easiear and safes a lot time i waste one week, if i have questions i ask you earlier.i print at the moment a cube, it looks like that the extruder make much steps (440) with the cherry pi III extruder. is it right that the disadvantage of eeprom is, when i upload another firmware to my arduino the configuration is lost or is my thinking wrong?

I use Rich Cattell's Marlin from here [github.com]. I you load another configuration from the Arduino IDE the changes to anything in EEPROM won't take effect unless you issue an M502 (load factory defaults) and then save it with M500. This will overwrite all EEPROM values with the values in your new configuration. I run my steppers at 1/16 microstepping and have my extruder set to 640 steps/mm. You can change this with an M92 Ennn.nn command. M500 would save the new value to EEPROM. It's easy to check. Measure from the input on the extruder to 110mm back on your filament. Extrude 25mm four times using Repetier Host or Pronterface. Measure the distance between your mark and the extruder. This will tell you exactly how much was extruded. Using this you can work out what the new M92 Ennn.nn value shouyld be using (target length/actual length) x old M92 Ennn.nn value e,g if you actually extruded 90mm when you told the machine to extrude 100mm the formula is (100/90) x 640 (for me) = 711.1. So M92 E711.1 followed by M500 would set the correct steps per mm for the extruder.

ok,
i now use rich cattel again. Nice to know that eeprom is not changing anithing. At the moment i print a hand from thingiverse looks good. not as good as my repstrap but 4 times faster. i have to google more about eeprom to understand it complete, but the endstop offset and the delta radius offset changes are working well. thank you for this information again. at the moment i pirnt without g29 (auto bed leveling) to test my settings.
