[Now compatible with 8-lead] Vibration Compensation Beta Firmware for 2.0 Series: Stable Print Quality at Higher Speed

I would love it if this version of the vibration compensation could be integrated into the new version of the normal software, i.e. in one of the versions after 1.17.17.
Then you no longer need to always readjust everything and adjust and can use the function possibly also for the laser and CNC!

The update was announced on 7/10.

A stable version will not be available before the end of the year.

Hi everyone. Sorry, but it’s hard to tell from reading this thread. Is vibration compensation dead in the water?

If that’s true, thats a huge bummer

@acw It’s not as prior or not that easy so:

it’s not ded, they’ve decided to make it happen and release.
But, don’t hesitate to try it now and provide feedback, to accelerate the development.

Tried it on A250 with Dual Extruder, at first it looked like it was working well at 80mm/s for infill, 40mm/s for walls, it sure cuts 5 hours from a 20hr print, but when I actually put it to test where it mattered (long print), it failed miserably as the print shifted left on the X axis, I couldn’t tell from the camera and was away, 14hrs of print time and material wasted. Decided to update back to released firmware, unless if there is a known fix for this behavior I cannot risk any more prints.

The currently released version is known to be incapable of printing successfully, so there is no point in testing it further.

Can’t agree, there are people making successful prints with this firmware. Tim Walters from FB for example.

@Riskey Any news on the Vibration Compensation firmware? We have now started the new year and no update from Snapmaker on this topic since September last year :frowning:

I’m also following this thread for updates but noticed there hasn’t been any other beta firmware releases since June - is this dead in the water? It’d be very disappointing considering the ‘exciting’ introduction it got a year ago.

Hopefully @Riskey will shine some light soon :slight_smile:

Can you compile this firmware with de backlash enable?

Also been waiting for some updates on this, initial beta was very promising. Would appreciate an update @Riskey?

Seems like Riskey havent been online on the forum since September last year , so not sure he will come online and give a response.
@Jade can you come with and update on this matter from Snapmakers side?

Hi everyone,

We apologize for the extended silence regarding the stable and integrated version of the vibration compensation firmware for the 2.0 series machines. Over the past six months, we’ve underestimated the workload of adding the Ray/20W/40W/2W laser module projects and an ongoing upgrade accessory project for the 2.0 Linear Module, along with other ongoing improvement projects (which we can’t reveal at this time due to the extended release timeline). Currently, as the laser projects are entering a stable phase after release, the final development and issue resolution for integrating the vibration suppression firmware into the mainline have been given a high priority. However, it will still take approximately 7 weeks until the next beta version of the firmware is ready. The specific timeline for this task will begin on the first working day after the end of the Chinese New Year holiday. The engineer responsible for this project development & testing will dedicate their full efforts to ensure the next beta version is planned for release in early April.

Since integrating the firmware into the mainline will impact the usage of thousands of Snapmaker 2.0 users, we will not directly release the official version. Instead, we will first release it here on the forum and through newsletter updates to allow more people to install and test it. Once all issues are resolved and we have fixed all known problems, we will then release the official version and push the update online.

Finally, I’d like to mention that Riskey, who was originally help handling this topic and forum feedback, left our team for personal reasons in the end of Oct. 2023. Although Riskey and I still maintain personal contact, she will no longer be involved in addressing forum user feedback and communication. If there is a need to contact an official representative regarding this topic in the future, you can directly tag me or Zoe @Zoe .

Best, Jade

Really appreciate the update, and vey much appreciate to hear that there’s ongoing development for improvements of the 2.0 machines! I guess all those that hailed the end of Snapmaker 2.0 after Artisan publishing should apologize…

Hugely appreciate the update Jade, really looking forward to seeing how this develops. :slight_smile:

Can we receive an update on when this will be released? The version that the beta is built on is old and no code has been upload to github is not updated to include current PRODUCTION releases. I would love to have this vibration compensation
