Z Axis rising issue (Printrbot)

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just bought a "Simple Metal with Heated Bed" DIY kit and assembled it. When I tried to print, the z axis always do slight movements (up and down) but after finishing a layer it does not rise to next layer. It tries to print on the same layer, so z axis never moves up while printing. The printing goes on but since z axis does not move, it pushes away the layer it printed before and goes on.

If you can help I can start my 3D printing journey.

You might have better luck finding help over at the Printrbot forums/support. Almost all the users here are Ultimaker users. You're of course welcome here, just don't be surprised if it takes a while for someone to come along that is able to help.

I'll edit your thread title to include "Printrbot", maybe that will help attract other Simple Metal owners :)

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
