Help! Bed level epic fail!

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have an Ultimaker 2+ X, now a year and a half old. It's running almost constantly and I've had problems, but nothing surprising, except for today.

I re-leveled the bed, because I had a jam earlier and it was time anyway, and I started a print. I had leveled it to be pretty tight to the plate; about 100 micron space, as I always do.

And it started extruding about 6-10 mm ABOVE the build plate, basically in mid-air.

I did the whole thing 2 more times and exactly the same thing happened.

(No new Cura, no new firmware. Cure 15.04.6)

Anybody had the same thing? What can be done?

    • "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.
