  1. Manually Turn Off Filament Detection (Pro Series) If for some reason the filament detection seems to fail (or in your situation it is not required or wanted), you can disable it manually via the manual control panel in FELIXbuilder. You basically send some gcode commands directly to the printer in the send command textbox.This is the ...
  2. Printer Doesn't Heatup, Stops Heating, Heater Decoupled / DEF / DEC When printer doesn't heatup, it could be that the the printer went in standby mode to save power. Only applicable to FELIX 3.1 and older. To get printer out of standby mode do one of the following. Please press "on/off" button twice in repetier-host interface. or on display unit Press ...
  3. Homing Issues, Printing In The Air, Z Sensor Triggered, Bed Leveling Issues(G32/G33 Leveling Failed) In general the z-sensor circuit is not working properly when you have one of the following issues: Z-axis only moves a few mm downwards when homing. Printing/extruding in the air. Bed leveling not working. (G32/G33 leveling failed) Persistent "Z-sensor triggered" message when idle (only ...
  4. Humming Noise From Heated Bed, TEC 4 The TEC 4, can give a humming noise from the bed heater. Especially when it is near its setpoint temperature and the printer is idle. The temperature controller quickly starts to control the temperature to an as stable as possible temperature. This switching happens at high frequency which is ...
  5. Filament Doesn't Stick To The Bed Distance between hot-end tip and bed too big after homing. This is the most common bed adhesion problem. Tips to solve this. After homing the hot-end should touch the bed. The bed is 0, so when above this the distance is starting to become critical. The filament should get squashed a little ...
  6. Z-Axis Moves Down Slowly When Idle For Pro The FELIX pro has a ballscrew with very low friction to ensure accurate z-axis movement. This in some cases especially with a heavy object can cause the z-axis to move down by itself at a low speed. When you have this behavior there is nothing wrong with the printer, in fact you have an ...
  7. Nozzle(S) Too Close /Too Far To Bed, During First Layer When the nozzle is too close or too far from the bed during the first layer. It can be caused by the following things. Z-homing sensor not properly setup, consult the manual of your printer, to properly calibrate the z-homing height. Z-home sensor not properly working, please ...
  8. The Z Axis Makes A Lot Of Noise When Moving This normally only applies to the FELIX 3 and TEC series. When the z-axis makes a squeeking noise, please apply some grease on the z-axis. Apply a small amount of thick ball bearing grease to ensure smooth motion.
  9. The Extruder Makes A Loud Clicking Noise And No Material Is Being Extruded When during printing you hear a clicking/ticking noise coming from the print-head. It is most likely the sound of the stepper motor stagnating and skipping a motor-step. This is not harmfull to the printer or motor. The most common causes for this. Extruding too fast at to low temperature. ...
  10. Z-Sensor Issues, Leveling Not Working Tec 4 In some cases the Tec 4 can have issues with the leveling and probing function. Most of the times the following steps fix the issues. Double check if the z-screw fixing the spindle to the motor is properly fixed. Check if the nut of the spindle is properly in place. Move the induction ...
