Ultimaker 2+ extended Z-axis height issue

Posted · Ultimaker 2+ extended Z-axis height issue

Hey everyone.

Did some tinkering with my motherboard and the Z axis dosent go all the way up to nozzle. It instead goes 4 inches below nozzle head and stops there.

All prints is 50% of correct height.

Almost as it belives its a normal ultimaker 2+ and not extended version. How can i correct this?

    UPDATE:

    Its a software problem, it belives it goes up 330mm but in reality it only goes up 165mm. How do i fix this?

     

    Perhaps a side effect of your tinkering with the motherboard. Have you accidentally plugged something to the connector which is labelled '8/16 step' (or similar)?

    i belived so aswell. Bought a new motherboard and installed it but the problems presist. 8/16 steps is open as it should be and nothing is connected to it. I tried closing the connection and it only leveled 1/4 of total distance.

    UPDATE:

    Filament feeder only do half the length to extruder, do not know what are causing this. Tried changing Z mm/sec so it would come up to level but when prints more then 20mm in height i get a warning message "print out of buildplate"..

    How can i erase my existing software completly and then put in tinkergnome without Cura? I belive this is the problem.
