So far so good. But I think everything is still at the beginning of the test phase with me.
It's not quite as bad as it sounds. A bit of rewiring has to be done, but that is a minimal effort, technical understanding is of course required.vert wrote: ↑Fri Jan 10, 2020 10:46 pmsee alot of people trying to install skr boards many of them without the skills required to do so that seem to hit road blocks every 10 seconds.
it sound be noted a upgrade like this is very involved required rewiring as well as firmware programming and a bunch of trial n error to get it going.
Programming the firmware is also not tragic if you know how to do it.
I am a total novice in the field of 3D printers, the conversion of the circuit board was easy, the basic firmware setup was also not a problem, the finishing touches are a bit more complicated.
Because i'm also having issues with my replacement GT2560 board and I really couldn't be bothered waiting around for yet another replacement. I'd rather just put a SKR 1.3 in
I'm on the SKR groups, failure rate is nowhere even close to 40%. The boards are well regarded and are certainly the best 32 bit board to get right now for the price
I'll happily throw this garbage geeetech board right out the window. I have no problems rewiring and setting up the firmware, just need to know if the SKR can handle the heated bed on a A10M or if I need to add a mosfet
I bought the SKR1.3 with TMC2208 UART steppers for my Geeetech A10M a while ago after my E0 extruder started priming when it should be retracting which had forced me to just stick to using E1 for the last while. I've been using Marlin2 successfully apart from this problem so far but I'm not the sharpest tool in the box so I made a hastey retreat before I started chopping the wiring to hook the board up.
I've just come across this thread and quietly shouted halelujah to myself whilst reading that others have been down this road before me and pointers may be available. Do you have any more advice or pictures you could share on wiring the board up correctly.
I don't want to blow anything up and have been considering buying another Geeetech board as an easy replacement but I'm an adventurous soul and would really like to get the SKR working if I can. I've uploaded the Marlin 2 firmware to it using Atom, got the touch screen working and looked at the stepper voltages etc. I'm okay with soldering and have a loose grasp of Marlin but I'm just not brave enough to start chopping things up yet.
Any help/ advice would be greatly appreciated.
My cheap BMG clone just never was quite right, I went to replace it...
Removing it eventually required drilling out a stripped set screw on my extruder motor.
A $6 metal extruder from Amazon worked okay up until those set screws worked entirely loose.
I fixed that and the Z-rod mount at the top of the printer came completely loose out of nowhere.
I fixed that and the bowden tube worked loose during a print and completely blocked my hot-end with now cooled and expanded PLA blocking the whole throat.
The bed no longer heats safely, it appears to be a broken connection somewhere I can't spot with the naked eye but otherwise the electronics are working fine. Sensorless homing, 3DTouch, etc. on the SKR 1.3 w/ TMC2209s. For the LCD I went with the TFT24 V1.1, also working fine now.
I'm trying to figure out now how to attach another hotend given that I don't have a functioning hotend with which to print a standard V6 mount or anything similar. I can't find any after-market upgrades/replacements for a reasonable price that include all the mounting hardware. It's all assumed you're doing a drop-in replacement and all you need is the part itself, not to mention that everybody wants their own semi-proprietary screw hole placement on the X carriage.
