Ultimaker Original is printing bigger on Z axis

Posted · Ultimaker Original is printing bigger on Z axis

I have some printing problems after upgrading.

Last week I bought an “Ulticontroller” and “Heatedbed” upgrade kit for my Ultimaker Original.

now I am printing with cura 15.04.6 because Cura 2.1.2 is not working very well with my Ultimaker.

After upgrading my Ultimaker Z axis scale is bigger.

15 mm box

I  checked  the jumpers on the Z stepper driver area. The first 2 jumpers installed and the 3rd jumper is not used.

My print is better scaled with all jumpers on.  

(ON-ON-OFF = scale +/- 300% Z)

(ON-ON-ON = scale +/- 200% Z)

Is somebody who can help me?

Thank you!!

Have you updated your firmware to match your upgrade and performed a factory reset?

Yes, in Cura I added a new machine, upgrade firmware and checked/reset all settings .

Go to Control -> Motion and change the z steps to 400. A factory reset removes the adjustments you could do or had on the machine and re-reads the info of the firmware.

(What is a factory reset?) I did : calibration, bed levelling, fine-tuning.

Maybe you can see some mistakes or errors in my settings (ulticontroller)

You have a 'save settings' on Control -> Store memory

Also there you have an option called 'restore failsafe' that I think it does what @IRobertI suggested. I never used it so I'm not sure if does that :D
