Run bed levelling wizard issue


Recommended Posts

Posted · Run bed levelling wizard issue


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.

    Thanks for your reply, i've already tried to move each axe alone and it seems to be ok.

    I'll check the screws when I am at the lab.

    In fact, the head doesn't abut the corners in each step of the " Run bed levelling wizard" process.

    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?

    so i just purchased the anet a3 and i had a successful print once from the stick that comes with the device. Now it seems to be printing about an inch to 2 inches at times from the base. How do i fix this problem?

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
