Z axis stepper motor slip

Recommended Posts

I couldn't adjust my z axis and I believe it is the problem with the stepper motor.

How does it happens?

- A week a ago, when I was trying to print an object overnight, I left a roll of tape under the printing bed ( i know its silly..), and when I came back the other day, I saw the printing bed is stopped by the tape and cannot lower it self. The job could not be finished and there is a big lump of filament stuck on the top of the printing object....

Now my z axis can be lowered when I use the bed leveling wizard, but i can't raise it...

please help... thanks

here is a video of the problem//

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
