Flickr Tag Error: Call to display photo '5184086881' failed.

Hello everyone !

After spending days trying to figure out why in the world i was having problems printing small details on objects , but no issues with bigger parts , i had a “eureka” moment last night (or a “facepalm” moment, it depends).

  • It turns out i was silly enough to shut down the steppers between each GCode command line (the commands telling the machine what to do) which of course allowed the filament to slip ! (a stepper without power has no torque, so it simply was letting the plastic filament slip all the time between commands). So i updated my firmware to only shutdown steppers after a timeout : and voila !

Here (and above) is the same gear, before and after the software changes.
