Hello Wanhao D6 people. I have a problem. I'm trying to use wax casting filament. However, it keeps getting mangled in the filament feeding mechanism. Each time it seems to double over and get stuck just past the geared wheel that feeds the filament to the nozzle. Any thoughts and ideas much appreciated. ...

Hey,

For some reason my cooling fans aren't responding to the gcode commands. When I start a print they are on 100% even before the first layer starts. My settings for the prints tell it to turn fans off for the first 2 layers, then 100%.

I sent the M106/107 commands from the terminal in Octopi but nothing happens. Any ideas?

Anyone know why I am getting under extrusion for only about the first 10-15 seconds or so? I set my brim now to about 10 lines to make sure material is coming out. When it starts a print, it does its normal bed raise and lower dance, but when the nozzle starts heading to the start point, it will start the print pattern with no material. This has all been using PLA and a couple different brands. Currently it heats the hotend to 180. ...

I would like to add a plate with a greeting to a friend to a model I have printed already. I would like it to be 18 cm x 18 cm, app 4 mm thick and engraved text perhaps 1-2 mm down in the plate. Any suggestions on how to make this? And how to generate the gcode file from Sketchup where I have a sample?? ...

I was printing tonight just like usual, and suddenly the printer stopped and displayed an error about the heater. I restarted it, and it wouldn't move and only said X or Y wiring error.
I checked all of the wires, reseated them. The error went away. I started another print, it failed due to unrelated reasons and when I corrected it and started it again, the bed nor the extruder will heat up, and I just get "ERROR Stopped - Heater Error" after a few seconds. I checked the wires leading to the bed and to the extruder, and they all seem fine. I feel like since it's affecting both of them, there is something else going on.
When I first turn it on, everything appears to be fine, I hear the relay click, the lights turn one, the display comes on, and I can select options. But nothing moves, the fans don't come on, and if I try anything, I either get the XY error when homing, or the heater error when trying to heat up.
I think it is the relay, but before I went poking around in there, I wanted to check if that is where I should be looking, and what pins should be outputting what voltage to test the relay.

Maybe you guys already know, but here is the Gcode to control the LED's that illuminate the build area.

M42 P8 S255

The S parameter is a number from 0 to 255 which corresponds to a brightness from 0 to 100%

It's just directly toggling the output pin to the LED strip as the stock firmware uses an earlier version of Marlin that doesn't support the M355 gcode command.

Hey guys, I did a couple upgrades on the D6. First was the all metal nozzle. I did a few prints and it worked great! I then installed a new fanduct with the 40x40x20 24v blower fan. The fan works and it starts to print. I had to stop the printer a few times due to abs not sticking. Now all the sudden I am getting the Error- Stopped Heater error. I checked the cable on top and thats set correctly ( with a clip I printed ). I've checked other peoples issues and have only seen that it's normally the ribbon cable..Any help please? ...

Anyone tried the aluminium lever from Micro Swiss? Abit concerned that the metal part will lead more heat to the filament causing it to go soft before entering the heatblock. Extruder motor gets quite hot after a while printing PETG. Any thoughts? ...
