Hello @Sineos or Anyone Else w/ Sound Advice Here,
@Sineos …I read over the link you posted. It is similar to the config portions in the docs. to Klipper if not exact. Anyway, nothing has helped so far.
8mm diameter, w/ 1 start, and 2mm pitch. I put in the value and while trying other values for this cube print to start off, I noticed that I could also change the microsteps once the rotation_distance has been configured.
Anyway, I know it needs to be exact but I did try other values outside of the exact value.
I tried 2 to 16 in increments of 2. Nothing is making the Z-Axis rise…
I altered the height of the gantry for the Z-Axis too. I lowered it. I finally got it to where it would print flat enough on the build surface.
I set up the PROBE, PROBE_CALIBRATE, and performed the offset values also for XYZ.
I had this issue before w/ this specific PrintrBot 1403 w/ a 7mm and/or 1/4" lead screw.
This fellow showed me to use PID values to handle such a lead screw. I cannot reconfigure his steps, i.e. computer crash since then and lost materials (notes and paperwork).
Is there any other ideas you and anyone else has currently to handle lead screws on the 1403?
P.S. I will keep trying, i.e. as I just put a larger bed on this printer to finish off some prints that I wanted to make. Anyway, thank you so far for the advice and knowledge. I had 1.58 for the lead screw of 7mm and/or 1/4" beforehand.
This lead screw is 8mm or roughly 5/16" in diameter w/ an arbitrary value for the start and pitch.
I type arbitrary there b/c my current tools are not equipped to handle the measurements of start and pitch. I have a couple tools to use but all have failed, i.e. calipers and fine tooth mm ruler.
Anyway, thank you for any advice you can give.
