Moving issues while printing

Recommended Posts

Posted · Moving issues while printing

Hey guys,

I am facing an absolutely crazy problem.

If I start a print all goes well, until he starts with the first layer.

After some cm of printing, the printhead stops moving and after some time (~1min) it moves ahead. This process is repeating itself all ~5 cm of printhead movement. During this stopping time, filament is coming out and ruining the print.

For me it looks like something is lagging.

The printer itself still reacts normally to the button.

Following attempts were made to find a solution:

- sliced a different model in CURA 2.5

- updated firmware with CURA 2.5

and now I am out of ideas.

Hope you can help me.

Regards,

Klaus

What method of printing (SD card, USB cable, USB stick, wifi, LAN) are you using, and what model machine is it?

Are your printhead shafts aligned and well lubricated? Can you move the head easily by hand?

Try spraying the SD card slot with a little canned air.

Hi,

after my holidays I checked it.

The head can easily be moved - just the resistance of the stepper motors.

I blew in the SD-slot and no change at all.

Any other suggestions?

Have you updated to the latest stable version of the firmware yet?

Please check: System -> Maintenance, then move over the choice "Update firmware". At the bottom you will see the current version, which looks something like:

X.Y.Z.YYYYMMDD
