I seem to be having a issue when printing taller prints. The stl file looks fine in Cura but when printing the printer moves off the original start point and print creeps off line. Any idea what is going wrong?

    Labern,

    Thanks of the guide load of stuff there!

    Checked all the belts and pulleys but looks like is issue with the stepper motors overheating and shutting down to cool while printing, have looked that up and seems to be a common problem. Trying to see if adjusting the current to the motor works if not will try to install some fan cooling or heatsink addition.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
