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)

    • "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.
