Text printing mirrored on G2S Pro

I have had an ongoing issue with text printing mirrored on my G2S Pro. If I set "invert X, Y or X*Y" in repetier host, all that does is changes which way the head moves when using the manual direction controls, but it doesn't flip the design around. It previews in Blender correctly. It previews in R...

Re: Auto Bed Leveling (ABL) issues on G2S Pro

Has anyone here tried replacing the ABL probe with an inductive type probe? I ordered a 4mm type and will be attempting to get it installed shortly. The metal springloaded probe was binding up and very unreliable. I am giving up on the stock probe. This new probe requires 12v, so I am wondering whic...

Re: G2S Pro Dual extrusion Z level issues

I could never get the dual extrusion to work well. I would level the heck out of everything. First the stage itself. using dial calipers and precision 10mm spacers under the wingnut areas. Then the homing position set screws, etc. Getting one extruder tip to level usually produced excellent prints, ...

Re: Geeetech mini G2 print out mirrored

I have this same issue that the text characters that I print end up mirrored/reversed. In repetier, setting the "invert x, y or X*Y" doesn't fix the issue. It just changes which way the head moves when I press the manual movement control. Is this a setting that needs to be changed in the firmware/co...

Re: Geetech Delts G2s Build

Check the mechanical home position switch with an ohmmeter. It should open/close the circuit when you manually press it. If the home sensing switch is good, check the wiring to the controller board. Make sure you have it in the correct location on the board. There is an X a Y and a Z. If the printer...

Re: nossle only crashes

You have to adjust the bed height setting very precisely. Mine is around 196.01. The way you do this is to home the print head and then very carefully bring it down using manual movement controls until a piece of paper just barely slides out from the extruder tip. Then look at the height setting and...

Re: Nozzle drops after ~ 1 min

Go to thingiverse, there is a carriage clip you can download that you place on the vertical bars and when the printing is done it will prevent the spider from dropping. The issue is that after a while the controller turns off the stepper motors which are then free to spin and the weight of the spide...
