UM3E - Automatic Levelling fails but insists on repeating the print cycle

Recommended Posts

(I had versions of this problem last week)


This morning, I started a new print. Automatic Leveling activated and decided the print cores were not alighed. Before I took any further steps, it tried to start the print again, going into automatic leveling, with the same result. Even when I switched the machine off and on again, it immeidately tried to start printing with the same Leveling failure. I must have had five levelling failures in a row without my being able to pause things to assess what to do next.


In between all this, I cleaned the print bed and the tip of the print cores and it eventually decided to print. The point about this is that the machine/software takes on a mind of its own.


I downloaded the relevant coding dump. How do I get that to you?

    • "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.
