Re: Printer not connecting

Have you closed ANY other program that can connect to the printer ?
Cura / Slic3r etc will stop you from connecting if they're open.

Re: Leveling Problem what do i wrong

Hi, Without knowing which version of the firmware you're using... When I installed my firmware, I started out with a BL Touch. I used the firmware Marlin-1.1.9_bugfixes_02102019 given by wwysocki... It ran 1st time for me. https://www.geeetech.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=62412#p90623 From memory,...

Re: I3 Pro B Retraction impossible

Hi Bugsia, Without knowing the details - as you've not given us the material you're using, temps or print speed... I'll have a guess at where I'd start looking. 1) I'd look at the nozzle/throat tube interface... Is there a gap between the throat tube and nozzle inside the heater block ? - They shoul...

Re: Problems with configuration of 3DTouch Auto Leveling Sensor

Hi Jose, The menu system allows you to set the 3D Touch Z offset. Scroll down to 'Control' and select. Scroll to 'Motion' and select. The first menu option is the 3D Touch Z offset (It is on my machine ! ) Select and turn the wheel to set the required value. IMPORTANT... The go to 'Control' again, s...

Re: Need advice: Geeetech Prusa i3 Pro B or Creality Ender 3?

Hi Jessy, You're going to have to mess around with the ender 3 to get it working as well ! Printers like this are NOT 'Plug and play' - It's not as simple as printing a word document with an ink-jet printer ! You will have to learn how to tweak all the settings in your slicer program to get good res...

Re: Geeetech I3 ProB, printing in the air??

Hi Juan / Gini So you've checked the bed and it is level... When you 'Home' the printer, it goes to the correct height - ie you check the nozzle/bed position with a piece of paper under the nozzle. The problem arises when you start a print ??? One area could be the gcode ? The first layer of the pri...

Re: Problems with configuration of 3DTouch Auto Leveling Sensor

Hi Jlamador, -7.39 sounds like a high/low number ! I've used a BL Touch since I first built my ProB - It works flawlessly. When I installed the BL Touch, I had to make sure that when extended, the pin was lower than the nozzle tip - but when in the up position, the pin was above the nozzle... I did ...

Re: Plastic tube near the hot end needs replacement — need help

Hi Suvl, Well that looks grim ! I've never had to put any torque at all into the throat tube when changing. I have found that once I've taken it all apart, I can screw the tube up into the extruder just with fingers... I then do the same with the heater block. I check that the nozzle can touch the e...

Re: Plastic tube near the hot end needs replacement — need help

Go on Amazon/Ebay depending on preference... Type 'Throat tube' Get something like this... 40mm will work on your proB https://www.amazon.co.uk/IZOKEE-Extruder-Throat-Nozzle-Print-Makerbot/dp/B06XZ6W61J/ref=sxts_sxwds-bia-wc-p13n2_0?cv_ct_cx=throat+tube&dchild=1&keywords=throat+tube&pd_rd_i=B06XZ6W6...

Re: Réglages Cura avec Geeetech I3 Pro B

Hi Marc, I always print from the SD card as I would hate for a glitch in the computer ruining an 8 hour print just before the end... I always print with no usb connection between the computer and printer. Case in point being that I've just typed a very long answer to your questions here - and then w...
