Bad leveling ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Bad leveling ?

Hi ! i'm using UM3 and my printed parts are approx 2mm thicker on one side. Looks like a leveling issue but since the active leveling seems to work well i dont know how to correct the problem. Anyone had the same issue ? Thanks

2mm! Wow. Please update your profile and add UM3 to it.

Well a picture would help as maybe you aren't talking about what I think you are.

But autoleveling detects the error and then prints the part thicker in the lower spots. Basically it adjusts the Z axis while printing the bottom layer and then adjusts the Z axis less and less as you go up and by some height (5mm? 1mm?) the Z axis is no longer moving on a given slice and your slices are aligned with the gantry instead of the plate. I didn't think autoleveling would do as much as 2mm! Maybe it does.

Anyway if this describes your problem then you need to do a manual rough leveling. Once. Maybe you should do it once every year just for luck but once ever should be fine.

Those were my thoughts too gr5. We're in contact with mfiset over e-mail. Looks like manual level did the trick for anyone out there with the same issue.
