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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
