Issues with custom delta printer / RRF 2.05.01
June 08, 2022 09:25AM
I am experiencing very strange issue with one delta printer – based on Kossel design. It was working fine with RRF 2.05, until the bearings of the belt idler wheels got damaged. I changed the wheels as well as updated the firmware to RRF 2.05.1, but the calibration currently provides not repeatable results. It seems the diagonal length with every calibration increases ?

Calibration of the diagonal rod lengths only works well if you can probe well outside the normal print radius. I suggest you change to 8 factor calibration.

Incorrect tower steps/mm, which can be caused by loose belts or pulleys, can cause calibration to adjust the diagonal rod length.
