[Sticky] What are we working on?
Here is a list of tasks, in priority order, that we at BigBrain3D are actively working on:
- Add calibration instructions to manual
- Add Creality instruction images to manual
- Replace instruction placeholder text with actual instructions in manual
- Reply to support inquiries
- Finish the video instructions
Basically we need to make some big changes to the manual and most of the support tickets/posts need this information for us to answer them.
Please subscribe to this post and that way you will get emailed when we update it with our progress.
- add fan wire step was updated here
- palette WA servo optional note added
- The firmware and octoprint mismatch have been resolved, there are new versions of each on github
- there was another bug related to the bore alignment that was fixed which caused an error about type mismatch
- We determined that the swap requires a new step for increased compatibility with octoprint and we suggest that you don't print until the 'locking height step' change is fully tested by us. We are working on this now.
Completed "Implement locking height step into firmware". moving on to octoprint implementation, Timing the printer extrude with the servo actuation during the step.
Octoprint/Firmware still in progress. We are working on it. It's almost done.
- Octoprint Load and Unload insert code is complete.
- Some work is still needed in Octoprint to handle Tool change commands during prints. This is what we are working on now.
When do you plan on updating the manual to include the calibration of the Swapper3D? Will this be after the firmware is done?
Yes, because the calibration includes screens and settings in Octoprint.
@extrudercat That will be a good test 🙂
The plugin is almost ready. Still working on the swap process and testing.
@bigbrain3d Any ETA's on when that plugin will be done? I am super eager to try out my Swapper!
@nightlyh The plugin is nearly complete. Tool changes are working during prints, and manual Swapping is also supported. Palette and MMU specific settings have been added. We are testing the plugin dynamically with actual printing and working out the final little bugs. We will publish a new release soon, possibly during this weekend. If you wish to see more specific and frequent updates you could subscribe to our repo on Github here.
@bigbrain3d I see you released new versions of the plugin and firmware on GitHub. Are these now ready for regular use?
