Z-Stage Problems

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Two years ago i bought the original heated build plate for the Ultimaker original from ultimaker. Now a couple of weeks ago i was able to come back to 3D printing and install the new Z-Stage but now i have a Problem.

The first try to Print was horrible, the part was 10mm high in the design but the print was nearly 30mm high. Then i checked the Z movement by a sliding caliper and it was totally wrong.

I Tried to figger out the correct steps/mm value but i think i'm not 100% correct. Currently is it to +200,6 but when I print designers higher the approximately 30mm the the bond of the layers go worse.

So could please give me somebody the information of the correct steps/mm setting an also oft he jumpering of the Z-Motor drive?

Im not quite sure what is wrong the value or the jumpering.

Thanks.

Ragards

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
