My UM2  displays the following error message Z screw stuck

However the bill played moves freely by hand but the Um2 is not able to lower the built played even when requested through the advanced menu when I pressed the lower button it just brings the bill plate further up

Can you move it by turning the screw by hand (with printer shut down)?

If yes lift it up by hand and check if the z switch can be actived (you can find it inside the printer underneath the build plate (when it sits at the bottom). At the backside, there is a hole.

The build plate has a screw underneath that goes in that hole to activate the z switch.

You can try to click it with a screw driver

Maybe some plastic is stuck in there

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
