After flashing Marlin firmware onto my Anycubic Mega S, I am unable to get a quality print out using the Octoprint server I set up. When I extrude filament via the interface it appears to extrude a nice solid string. When I set a print to run, the print seems to struggle making a solid string which makes it look lumpy or not even adhere to the bed.
What did you already try to solve it?
I have tried setting the print heat to 180 instead of 200. I have printed with my slicers default settings. I have tried to slow down the print speed. I have adjusted the bed level. I have set an offset on the z axis to account for a possible too close to bed issue.
There is no octoprint firmware for 3D printers - I guess you're mixing something up
It's a software that lets you control your printer via serial connection (USB for example).
The firmware on your printer is probably Marlin.
Does your printer support auto leveling? BL-touch or something else?
The version is 1.1.9 of Marlin, and 1.4.6 of this custom version for Anycubic i3.
And to answer your question, no I do not have any auto-leveling upgrades installed. I've tried a couple things with leveling the bed, and I've tried to get it as close as possible and then to do a z-axis offset that brings it up just slightly to match the layer thickness that I've set. It didn't help at all with this. I must be missing something clearly.
