This definitely needs some 3D printed parts. So I decided to repair the Geeetech printer.
- I rebuilt the Raspberry PI, Ubuntu, Octoprint set using the newest versions.
- Replaced the Bulldog motor with a higher torque one.
- Replaced the TI driver for a new one. Just to be sure if it works correctly. Set the motor current to 1.2A (the max is 1.5A)
I still hear the clicking noise from the extruder. It looks like it doesn't loose steps as the filament is coming out from the hotend as expected. I don't know what it is. I can't do anything about it right now.
So I've a working 3D printer. Or not?
