In First Print
Proforge 2s with DSE. Got a successful print going with help from the settings in https://www.makertech3d.com/forum/first-print/settings-to-improve-the-printing. I think my heated bed is bowed (arrived that way) so it doesn't contact the bed plate correctly, so the higher temps help. I'll get it replaced soon. I had lots of issues with head oozing, so I added retraction (used cura defaults - 7.5mm I believe), and Z retract between layers a couple of mm, as clumps of ooze kept destroying the first layer. I think also initial issues with adhesion wasn't helping. I need to calibrate the DSE X/Y and figure out how to change filaments/heads (guide?) next. Now, my only outstanding issue is I can't use the provided SD card and touchscreen to print. Direct with Cura works fine (blue) but with the SD reader (red) it stops part way either parking the head or just stopping (mid print). The touch screen continues counting, but progress of course stops. I can cancel the print etc using the touch screen. I tried the left and right shrouds separately to see if it changed anything but nope. Weird. All in all, mostly happy.

In Dual Switching Hotend v1
Update: Looks like dodgy thermistors, something wrong with the connection at the black shrink wrap near the head end. Now that the guides/firmware are up for this I've given a bash at getting it going, but after going through the firmware install/setup the 2nd hothead is allegedly at -15 degrees on the touchscreen. I've: - Re-uploaded the Proforge 2s Dual firmware with fresh download - Verified I chose the Mega2560 board/CPU - Tested both thermistors which at the time both read 130.2kohm IIRC - Reseated the thermistor connections I've checked in the serial console and it sees the -15c too, so it's not a arduino -> lcd issue. echo:Marlin 1.1.9 echo: Last Updated: 2018-08-01 | Author: (Makertech 3D) echo:Compiled: Apr 12 2019 echo: Free Memory: 5185 PlannerBufferBytes: 1232 echo:Hardcoded Default Settings Loaded echo: G21 ; (mm) echo:Filament settings: Disabled echo: M200 D1.75 echo: M200 T1 D1.75 echo: M200 D0 echo:Steps per unit: echo: M92 X80.00 Y80.00 Z400.00 E98.00 echo:Maximum feedrates (units/s): echo: M203 X300.00 Y300.00 Z5.00 E50.00 echo:Maximum Acceleration (units/s2): echo: M201 X1000 Y2000 Z100 E10000 echo:Acceleration (units/s2): P<print_accel> R<retract_accel> T<travel_accel> echo: M204 P2000.00 R5000.00 T2000.00 echo:Advanced: Q<min_segment_time_us> S<min_feedrate> T<min_travel_feedrate> X<max_x_jerk> Y<max_y_jerk> Z<max_z_jerk> E<max_e_jerk> echo: M205 Q20000 S0.00 T0.00 X3.00 Y3.00 Z0.30 E10.00 echo:Home offset: echo: M206 X0.00 Y0.00 Z0.00 echo:Hotend offsets: echo: M218 T1 X0.00 Y-19.00 Z0.00 echo:Auto Bed Leveling: echo: M420 S0 Z0.00 echo:PID settings: echo: M301 P18.48 I1.13 D75.30 echo:Z-Probe Offset (mm): echo: M851 Z-3.00 ok T:22.97 /0.00 B:22.50 /0.00 T0:22.97 /0.00 T1:-15.00 /0.00 @:0 B@:0 @0:0 @1:0 I've had a look in Configuration.h and it all looks good so I'm somewhat stumped.
