Have a look on that: https://github.com/spigotx/Moodlite/wiki/First-setup-of-Moodlite

I did read that, thank you for making that. However I didn't read anything about what kind of cable I need to plug the controller to my computer, or maybe I'm making it more complicated than it is?
Do I only need to provide it power from the PSU as CdRsKuLL shows in the wiring diagram and then I upload the sketch to it over Wifi?


Depending what board you are using it will be either a micro or mini to usb cable, nothing special at all :-)

I always give the bed a wipe with alcohol before each print. Sticks great then. :-)

Awesome.. is that going to be your finished shape / design ?

I have an A5 :-) Done loads of prints and its still working great.  You just need to be-careful of that bed, make sure you don't scratch it.. otherwise mines been a solid printer. Leaves a nice pattern on the moodlite tops too.

What temp are you using for the Ziro and your MK3? I got a roll off of Amazon and it is a stringy mess on my MK3.


I'm just using the standard Prusa PLA setting, think its 210 / 60 in Prusa Slic3r. Are you using the same software?

Just wondering.. bit of a long shot but you have added the correct number of LED's, just thinking if it's slightly over then you might get a pause effect.

moodlite Design / New moodlite Designs Release - Help required
« on: February 04, 2019, 10:22:05 AM »
Hey moodliter's,


I want to put together a new release of the designs and need your help :-)


Any modified files that you would like to become part of this package can you please post the STL / Step files if you have them below. It's designs that can be used by others really..


So, for example I know we have anew power module STL that allows you to use both types of NodeMCU's.. etc.


I think it's just a good way to keep all new files in one place for others to download.  A readme will be created with credits to designers too. :-)


Thanks,


Steve

Sorry, the com port communication screen..


:-)


Let me know how you get on. I'm printing with the 7 X mesh bed now.. only problem is it takes 49 reading..

Hi,




When you do the calibration routine watch on the comms screen and you will see something like...


xyzcal_find_bed_induction_sensor_point_xy x=1200 y=700 z=2000   <-- These coords are taken from the mesh_bed-calibration.cpp
Then on the line underneath are taken from the XYZCalc.cpp


13:06:33.086 : point=0 x=1200 y=700 z=2000
13:06:33.086 : xyzcal_meassure_enter
13:06:33.090 : xyzcal_searchZ x=1200 y=700 z=2000


After it's done its first scan it then see if the match is over 66.. if it is, then it probes the point
13:07:42.989 : max_c=10 max_r=9 max_match=82


I needed to lower that match value to make sure it found the point every time. I set it to 30.. (details in notes)
So it will do the scan 4 times and take an average. It's this figure that needs to near the calibration points mentioned above. Mine were off which is why it kept failing.  So.. Start a calibration off watch for the first point and see if it's close to your stored firmware point.. if not, then alter and repeat.


13:07:57.416 : x0=1201
13:07:57.416 : y0=710




So.. my first point was x1201, y710   ..




Originally this point was at 1200, 600... so I altered the point in the firmware to 1200 , 700.. and it worked :-)  I just did the same for the other 3 points.


In the firmware you have mk25 board coords so I'm guessing you just need to do the same.












These are my Notes..
Code: [Select]




Set new motor current 
Configuration_Prusa to - {30, 30, 55, 30}
TMC2130 to - uint8_t tmc2130_current_r_home[4] = {30, 30, 30, 18};




In XYZCalc.cpp
Change co-ords for bed.. (these are my new coords)
const int16_t xyzcal_point_xcoords[4] PROGMEM = {1200, 21700, 21700, 1200};
const int16_t xyzcal_point_ycoords[4] PROGMEM = {700, 700, 19900, 19900};




When it runs the calibration, reduce the pass rate down to 30 from 66...
if (xyzcal_find_pattern_12x12_in_32x32(pixels, pattern, &c, &r) > 30) //total pixels=144, corner=12 (1/2 = 66)




In mesh_bed-calibration.cpp you also need to change the coords for the bed to match above.
const float bed_ref_points_4[] PROGMEM = {
  37.f - BED_PRINT_ZERO_REF_X - X_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER - SHEET_PRINT_ZERO_REF_X,
  19.f - BED_PRINT_ZERO_REF_Y - Y_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER - SHEET_PRINT_ZERO_REF_Y,




  242.f - BED_PRINT_ZERO_REF_X - X_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER  - SHEET_PRINT_ZERO_REF_X,
  19.f - BED_PRINT_ZERO_REF_Y - Y_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER - SHEET_PRINT_ZERO_REF_Y,




  242.f - BED_PRINT_ZERO_REF_X - X_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER  - SHEET_PRINT_ZERO_REF_X,
  212.f - BED_PRINT_ZERO_REF_Y - Y_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER - SHEET_PRINT_ZERO_REF_Y,




  37.f - BED_PRINT_ZERO_REF_X - X_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER  - SHEET_PRINT_ZERO_REF_X,
  212.f - BED_PRINT_ZERO_REF_Y - Y_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER - SHEET_PRINT_ZERO_REF_Y
};




Change the Lang mode to zero
In config.h
#define LANG_MODE              0




Let me know how you get on :-)




Also, I've just downloaded a 7 x 7 point probe 3.5.1 firmware that I've made my changes too, just to see if it prints a better first layer.

Been printing yep :-)  I ordered a textured bed which came today off eBay.  Thought I would give it a go. I think I just need to lower my Z a little but I'm happy to say it's printing just as good as my original. :-)


Yeah, I'm guessing this cheap bed uses thinner copper etc.. and the calibration points were slightly off which is why I've been pulling my hair out for the last few days.. lol  Still, got there in the end.. lol

Love tinkering :-)


So.. good news I've finally managed to get it to calibrate :-)


I needed to alter the sensor coordinators in two places in the firmware so they then ties up with each other. This then allowed the xyzcalibration to pass and move on...  phew, 3 days it took to work out what I needed to do.


It seems this clone bed had slightly different positions, either that or my steppers are slightly under calibrated.


I've just got a temperamental pinda probe it seems now, sometimes it does the 9 probe fine before a print, other times it fails with a beep. 


I might have to invest in a proper pinda  :-)


I've also got an annoying vibration I think from one of the bearings.. think a bit of grease should sort that out.


Now, just a couple more to build.. lol

Glad it worked but it will not have altered the extruder current I would of thought, unless you changed that in your current tmc settings page.


I'm still struggling getting mine to even calibrate at the moment. Having a proper nightmare.. lol been at it three days now. I've had to walk away a few times before I jumped up and down on it..  much easier just bloody buying one.. !! 


Still, I'm learning and playing...  fingers crossed I'll crack it today.

Are you sure it's not showing an old SSID ?  Have you tried connecting to it.

14
can you post the text on your debug window?


If it's creating the access point moodlite then it's failed to connect to your home wifi. Double check the settings you have added.

15
Did you set to erase eeprom etc.. but not commented it back out once done?  I did this and wondered why it wasn't saving any details.
