Run bed levelling wizard issue

Recommended Posts


I need help... after a displacement, our Ultimaker doesn't work well anymore. Indeed, when I launch the Run bed levelling wizard process under Cura, the head won't move in each corner : the head is poorly moving or the head moves diagonally (the 2 stepper motors work together ...)

I've tried several things but nothing works...

- Grease the axles

- Repeat the parallelism of axes

- Tighten the belts

- Try different firmwares

- Check the jumpers

With best regards,

Skip the wizards (hit cancel) in cura.

Click on "prepare icon" which slices the robot (you must do this to get to the next step).

Click on the "print" icon. This will open a new window.

In the print window, go to the tab that controls movement.

Move the X servo alone. Move the Y servo alone. Only move 10mm at a time. Move the Z servo alone. Try to isolate the problem.

Did you check all 5 set screws on each axis? The x axis belts have 5 setscrews (not 4!). Make sure all 5 are very very tight.

Post more details.

I've never tried the cura bed leveling wizard so I'm not sure exactly what it does.

I'm not sure if the head goes completely in the corners or just near the 4 corners.

"abut" means next to, right?

    • "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.
