Went over all the settings several times. Like I said it worked great when it worked. I suspect most of the issues are with auto level which I don’t use on my MPCNC and I believe you don’t use on your printers…but on my printer I rely on because the bed shifts far too often ( working on some mechanical upgrades to solve that though.) Most of the issues I had were with the new UBL which I have to say really doesn’t seem to be release ready. But even with the older leveling code things were just not right.
The way it would sometimes skip the first layer and sometimes not from the same gcode really scares me. I can’t think of any setting that should cause that kind of thing to happen.
There does seem to be a lot of improvement on the basic movement stuff. But there were enough rough edges that I’m stepping back from 1.1 for now.
And yeah…RC6 is pretty old…but it’s a case of “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” RC7 had too many issues and it scared me from trying RC8. The printer works and is reliable on RC6 and after a week of fighting with 1.1.x variants and getting fed up it was just a matter of going back to what was working fine before so I can finish printing the parts I need to rebuild my Y axis.
Once that’s done I’ll probably dig back in on 1.1.x…but watching the development the past week or so I’m a bit wary now. There doesn’t seem to be much vetting on new code before it gets pushed into the main branch. The way they kept adding new features to RC’s I’m not surprised that the “stable” release isn’t that stable. They really need to get better about respecting the RC’s and doing feature freezes to get stable releases.
