XL upgrade; adjusting table size?

Postby pkmitton » 2014-Dec-Thu-11-Dec

I recently added the XL upgrade to my 1405, and I went through the Slicer and Repetier congifurations to adjust the table size. Everything that I can find has been updated to match the new size. When I create the g-code, the coordinates in the code show points within the new table size, but when I try to actually print, the machine acts like it hits an invisible wall where the original table ended, and it just prints lines along that "border" without ever crossing it.

If I just try to move the printer beyond that point, it'll go to x=100 and then just sit. I try to move 10 more mm, and the program says it moved, but the actual machine does nothing.

Is this a firmware issue? Do I need to reflash with different firmware? Where would I find it? Or am I actually having a different problem?

Thanks for your help!
