Problem with z-step after Heated-Bed Kit install...HELP!

Recommended Posts

I am a teacher at a high school in Vermont, USA

We have an UMO that we just installed a heated bed upgrade kit.

All things went well with install and are impressed with the new screw.

We upgraded firmware to the new Marlin and using Cura 2.3.1 we tried to print a bevel gear (previously printed on UMO prior to heat bed upgrade.) (0.1mm z height, 210C, 50mm/s)

Here is link to photo of 3D print.

(original print in yellow PLA, new print in white PLA)

As you can see in the photo there is a problem with z-steps and the new screw.

I can only assume problem is in the the new firmware / g-code set-up. We have NO IDEA how to fix.

can anyone HELP?

      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.
