Re: Change DRV8825 to SilentStepStick TMC2208

I've just chaged my stepper drivers, Y and X are smoother than ever but Z will just about go up, but makes bad noises and very slowly moves down, the stepper voltage is set at 1.2 for all 5 i ordered 6 so swapping Z out makes no difference Any ideas?

Re: [FIRMWARE] Latest helloBEEprusa firmware 1.1.1 Final

Got a bit of an odd issue after updating the firmware

When i set off a print, the extruder shows the correct temp, but heats to 10c below this every time i have to turn up the heat with tune, then once heated turn it back down

Any suggestions or just reload firmware?

Coding question turn of heaters

Ok i know nothing about Gcode
I use slicer to process stl files to print i regularly print big ish stuff that takes 12 hours plus so it ends up printing over night

Is there a simple way to turn off the heating to the bed and both extruders once printing is complete

Thanks
