Anyway to adjust E Steps? I've been using the firmware (Fantastic) and just upgraded to a Titan extruder.

Cheers

You change this via code if you wish for now..  I think the easiest way is to write a gcode file and then print it.   So, to do this if you open notepad up and put the following in

G28 ;lets home first so you know its reading
M92 E415 ;sets the new esteps
M500 ;saves the esteps to eeprom
G0 Z50; brings the gantry up to 50mm so you know its finished.

Now.. if you save it as newsteps.gcode  and then copy it over to the SD card and print it.. that will be it :-) jobs done.

Let me know how you get on.  I will be adding a couple of buttons soon to the firmware so you will be able to swap between them in the future but this should get you going.

Could you explain again how I can write gcode to change the E-step value in Firmware v 1.0? I have a bondtech extruder and the value has to be changed to 415. I also have a Mac, and Notepad is PC only as I understand. I use Cura as my slicer. Any help is appreciated.

Hi, just use any text editor and save the file with a .gcode rather than a .txt to a sd card.  Insert that SD card into your printer and choose to print that file.  It will run through the code and make the changes required.  Thats it :-)

my text editor - TextEdit - does not offer the option to save text as gcode. Can you suggest a different Mac application that does?
