Ultimaker Original is printing bigger on Z axis

Recommended Posts

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)

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.

 

Control setting:

Accel: 4000

Vxy-jerk: 20

Vz-jerk: +000.40

Ve-jerk: 5

Vmax x: 500

Vmax y: 500

Vmax z: 5

Vmax e: 25

Amax x: 9000

Amax y: 9000

Amax z: 100

Amax e: 10000

A-retract: 3000

Xsteps/mm: +078.74

Ysteps/mm: +078.74

Zsteps/mm: +0400.1

Esteps/mm: +0836.0

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

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