I just spent half an hour writing a very detailed post, and then your website crashed and I lost everything I wrote. Gonna summarize it best I can remember, but I might miss a few details.
I just got the chameleon I ordered. It looks great, but I'm having a lot of difficulty understanding what I'm supposed to do, and the documentation is spotty at best. I tried following the youtube tutorial but I couldn't really understand it. The camera was so far back I couldn't see what you were doing, and I also wasn't sure what portion of it applied to the mini or not. I instead opted to try to follow along with the Instructions page on this website which worked slightly better.
I followed the 'Loading and validation checkout' portion of the instructions without much success. I switched to mode 3 successfully, held for 7 vibrations which made it make noise. Not sure exactly what that was supposed to do. I then tried inserting filament into any of the slots but that didn't work. It just wouldn't accept the filament more than like half a centimeter, much less enough for me to shove it through a few feet of PTFE tubes. Sooooo I'm not sure what to do now.
Additionally, the gcode generator needs some explaining. How do I know whether to use mode 2 or 3? According to 'mk3 theory of operation', I would be in mode 1, loader/unloader mode. Except I don't see any 'mode 1 gcode generator.' So I'm following the Instructions page and using mode 3.
I don't understand some of the input values and how to obtain them. How do I measure the button location in mm? Using the printer's built-in Y-axis movement controls, it consistently hit the button and clicked when I moved it to 151, and then it clicked off when I moved it back to 150. So do I just put 151?
What is 'backout distance in seconds'? I assume that's the value we're getting in step 4, "Time the time it takes to move the filament from the Y adapter to the extruder." What does that mean though? How do I time it, or get it to feed when the motor won't let me put filament through it?
'Extruder to hotend in mm' is pretty straightforward, if hard to measure. I'll just input the value I found online for my printer (43mm, rounding down from 43.4mm) and fiddle with it later if I need to.
In the Instructions, it says '4) Insert filament into slot T0 and press the button.' What is 'the button'? I assume this is different than the switch? I can't see any button other than the switch.
Lastly, in that video of you at the 3d printer con, you mentioned the new firmware automatically measures a lot of stuff by sensing vibrations in the filament line. I assume that's the new firmware that isn't out yet? I just want to make sure it's not available somewhere and I totally missed it lol, would save me a ton of measuring and such.
I know it's a lot of questions, I really did try figuring it out on my own, but hours later I'm just stuck and don't know what to do.
