Offsets when printing circular objects

I'm having trouble, with my i3/M201when printing objects with circular features - I don't get this with objects that are made of only straight line sections. Calibration cubes and things like that, for example: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:45225 print very well - within expected limits in any c...

Re: Firmware for geeetech 3D printers

Hi. Is V1.0.5 going to be made available for the M201 with GTM32 Pro controller soon? As far as I can find, with the Pro controller, V1.0.3 is the latest available, and some of the bug fixes (in particular prints stopping) will be very welcome. This also seems the latest info from the other thread o...

Re: M201 heated build platform gap.

That might help with the edges, but the middle will still be a way out, as will the back.

I'll see what I can do with with some edge clips, and then take some thermal measurements.

Re: M201 heated build platform gap.

Thanks William. The build plate is in fact levelled, and in any case, as the heater and plate are held together at the corners where the mounting holes align, any slant will not actually affect this problem. It will also not affect the issue at the rear where the heater connector causes a gap. Youra.

Re: M201 heated build platform gap.

Three views: This shows the gap at the front - you can see all the way out to the back: 36399704891_2c8a953d94_k.jpg This shows the heater connector actually stopping the plate touching the heater at the back: 36490889626_c1422d86d0_k.jpg And this shows the front left corner, where as with the other...

Re: Z axis won’t move on Geeetech Prusa I3 X

I also had severe assembly problems with one side of the Z Axis - on the side with the X-Axis motor, the carriage went up and down easily, on the other side, very very stiff. After tearing my hair out for a while, I tried turning the linear bearing through 180 degrees (i.e. used the mounting screw h...

M201 heated build platform gap.

I've built up my M201, mostly fine, but one thing still bothers me - there is a large air gap between the PCB heater and the aluminium build plate everywhere except the corner where the screws are - this I'm sure will result in poor heat conduction and bad thermistor readings of the temperature. It ...
