Re: Electrical wires melting

When you test the heated bed and get hot wiring, is the heated bed also heating up? As for the heated bed resistance that you measured, most low cost multimeters are fairly inaccurate when measuring resistances under ~5 ohms, so the ~1.4 ohms that you measured may or may not be right. As you are luc...

Re: Configuring 3DTouch bed leveller

Just in case it takes a while to get an answer from Jim Brown, you could try a work around as a temporary fix. Jim Brown will be able to confirm, but I suspect that this is a Marlin Bug in this version - unless you've edited another files besides configuration.h........ So as a work-around temporary...

Re: Configuring 3DTouch bed leveller

For that Marlin compile error, I'd post a question/possible bug report on Jim Brown Marlin github page. Jim should be able to answer that question with far more expertise in Marlin firmware than myself.

So that might help you. And if...

Re: Configuring 3DTouch bed leveller

Q. How many servos does a standard Tevo Tarantula have ? A. Your Tarantula has an MKSBase 1.4, or possibly in newer model Tarantulas, you will have an MKSBase 1.5 main board. The answer is three (3) connectors that can be used to control a servo. The servos used as the same as those electronic serv...

Re: Configuring 3DTouch bed leveller

Greetings. My experience is only with the genuine Antclabs BLTouch. So, I'm unsure how exactly the 3DTouch copies the BLTouch. I'm assuming that the 3DTouch is a reasonably close copy, so maybe the installation and calibration instructions included on the Antclabs website (https://www.antclabs.com/)...

Re: Fresh setup but further ???

In your slicer, make sure that you have the correct filament diameter set. Many slicers default to 3mm filament, and when used on a Tevo that will cause gross underextrusion as you're getting. Tevo filament is 1.75mm. And when printing from SDcard, just scroll thru the printer's manu to find "Print ...
