Move the extruder thermistor to the connector closer to the power plug on the RAMPS board. See Slide 4 of [[D3D_Controller#Wiring]] or the slide that has the thermistor wire detail.

Basics



Safety

Operation

Setting Bed Leveling Probing

  • For D3D 1612 - set the following coordinates:

D3d1612coords.jpg

  • Note that configuration.h in Arduino code does not set bed size, but only the software endstops.
  • Use 3 point probing in OSE Marlin.
  • To modify probing location, go to Arduino IDE->configuration.h ->

Troubleshooting

  • Heaters refversed in Cura. If you set the extruder temperature - and notice that the heatbed temperature is rising instead - then the order of the thermistors has been reversed. Move the extruder thermistor to the connector closer to the power plug on the RAMPS board. See Slide 4 of D3D_Controller#Wiring or the slide that has the thermistor wire detail.
  • X moves freely by hand but are not working when powered using the control panel in Cura. The motors receive power but instead of moving one way or another they are locked in place. - either bad motor or bad cables. Take off the x motor and run it with Cura. Put a piece of tape on the shaft to see that it is running smoothly. Make sure that the order of wires is same on the RAMPS plug as on the motor plug. Some motors have the middle two wires reversed - so reverse those on the RAMPS pin.
  • There is a lot of vibration on the belt of the Z-axis on the side where the peg holds the belt to the carriage. One can also hear a noise. This happens while manually operating the axis using the printer control panel in Cura. The interesting thing is that if I use the bed leveling function from the top menu, the noise and vibration disappear.
