Z Axis Over Stepping After HBK Upgrade

Recommended Posts

As the tittle says, after completing the heated bed upgrade on my UMO, the Z axis is moving way too much. If I move the Z axis about 70mm, it's at the bottom of the machine. I followed the instructions to the dot, but there was nothing in the manual about changing the steps per mm (the value I'm assuming is at fault), all it asked me to do was create a new machine in Cura with the heated bed. Does anyone know what's going on? Thanks!

The steps/mm for the z-axis have to be changed from 533.33 to 200.0

UltiController: "Control -> Motion ->Z-steps/mm" and "Store memory"

or make an addtion to the start gcode:

M92 Z200

 

Okay, thank you!

Edit: That appears to have been the issue. I've completed one small print already and have begun a slightly larger one and the Z axis is working perfectly.
