Solved Print bed lowers itself WAY too low at start of print

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm having a problem with my first ever print where at the very beginning it auto homes perfectly fine then it will lower the bed significantly, raise it a little bit again and begin attempting to print in mid-air (I have the filament retracted WAY back to stop it going everywhere while testing).

I have the same result whether I print directly from Cura(v 15.04), or if I print from an SD card in my controller.

Here is a video of the problem: Dropbox

And here is the start of the G code.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Maybe you should reload it (UMO+, not UMO in Cura!).

 

Yep, if this is a "fresh assembled" printer - upload the correct firmware with Cura and don't forget a subsequent "Control" -> "Restore failsafe" and "Control" -> "Store memory" (on the UltiController).

This will set the correct values for steps/mm (amongst other things).

Seems like the Restore failsafe and store memory fixed it, now I just need to work out the new problem of why the extruder is grinding against the filament and not feeding through the bowden tube. Thank you very much guys!
