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)

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
