PID Autotune in 5DPrint FW

Hot end tune-up

One of the main things pushing people away from the 5DPrint FW has been the lack of a functioning PID autotune feature for the hot end, so I'm pleased to announce that this feature is now fully functional in the latest .42 revision and is available to download now on BitBucket.

The PID autotune is invoked using the standard M303 command, with full details of the command now updated in the FW wiki.

Please test out the feature and let us know how you get on in the comments below.

In anticipation of the inevitable flurry of comments regarding shipping delays, refunds etc. I fully understand your frustration, however, as much as I sympathise and would like to help you I have no direct influence in any of this at present so am unable to provide any assistance.  In light of this I'd appreciate if you could please try to keep the comments on topic as much as possible.

I understand that you're not involved in shipping, but I think Jon is probably checking.

What is going on?

I don't want a refund, I want a printer.

Me too,

I would like some info on the status of the printers.

The silence is deafening!!! and it's killing me!!! I don't want to give up hope but my son has asked several times now. Since he wanted to learn to use it during the summer break...

Any info would be appreciated...

Im starting to get a bit itchy too, after literally 18 months of waiting, the printer should have been delivered a few days ago, but nothing yet.

Since Jon's video says that have no money, they cannot ship printers or do much of anything else.

What's even worse, they continue to offer printers for sale and no warning to customers that the printer cannot be delivered. Terrible way to treat customer.

Even if they think this can be resolved, they are obligated to warn customers of the situation.
