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?
