So what is that Marlin?
Marlin is an open source printer firmware developed by a 3D printer enthusiastic community.
What firmware does my printer use?
Anycubic Kossel comes with Marlin FW from factory.
Upgrading it to a newer and better version is a good and a costless upgrade.
Why should I upgrade stock firmware? Anycubic Kossel Linear Plus Firmware Marlin 2.0 offers better performance and more options over the stock Anycubic Kossel FW.Delta calibration works much better then stock bed calibration.You can easily make changes in FW.Configuration files have been created for original Trigorilla board and original drivers which come with the printer. 1. Download Anycubic Kossel Marlin
1. What is it good for? PID regulation is necessary for consistent 3D printing.Bad PID values can cause thermal runaway problems or at least inconstintent flow.If you have upgraded extruder fan, extruder head, heater or hot end, you defininitely should perform PID calibration. This guide will onstruct you how to perform a extuder PID calibration. 2. Connect printer to computer
Correct Kossel calibration is crucial for succesful 3D printing.Printed parts tend to bend or even do not stick to the build plate without it. More about this Marlin G33 command:https://marlinfw.org/docs/gcode/G033.html 1. Check if your FW uses calibration A common mistake of those who have modified their Marlin configuration files is not defining this part: If you use my Marlin, it
1. Preparation 1.1. Heat up the nozzle Start by heating up the nozzle to your printing temperature PLA 190°C, PETG 230°C, ABS/ASA 250°C 1.2. Retract filament Push the extruder calipers and retract filament from bowden with the other hand 1.3. Bowden removal Press the bowden coupler and remove the bowden 1.5. Insert filament Cut the end of filament with pliers
Requirements You will need to buy a Raspberry and get a USB cable to make it work.I recommend buying this set, because it has all you need. ALIEXPRESS CLICK HERE Or you can order just a board and get the ramaining parts elsewhere. ALIEXPRESS CLICK HERE ALIEXPRESS CLICK HERE 1. Download Octoprint First step is installing OctoPi which is a
After extruder calibration you should calibrate material flow.It is possible that without flow calibration you printer will be over extruding and your print quality will be bad.You can easily modify it in your slicer, such as Cura. 1. Download cube stl file Click on the picture and download a 25*25*25 mm cube. 2. Slice it with a vase mode on
Anycubic Kossel Thermal runaway / Heating failed error message means, that your printer was unable to achieve and maintain desired temperature. Each firmware for 3D printers uses a PID regulator for keeping temperature at desired level.As a protection, there is always a margin, usually 5°C. If the temperatures goes below or above this level, heating stops and printer reports error.This
Kossel SKR 1.3 TMC UART is one of the best upgrades you can do.Before ordering anything decide if you want to change your board and use Marlin or you want to try Klipper and keep the original Trigorilla board. SKR provides much higher computing power which is so needed for fast printing with our delta printers. It also uses very
What is a combing mode? Combing is a Cura’s feature that recalculates nozzle travel to eliminate any surface artifacts such as blobbing. The difference between combing off and combing all is clearly visible in the picture below. 1. Combing Mode OFF This mode completely disables Cura combing feature. Nozzle travels through the empty areas almost every layer.This leads to too
