Weird stopping issues

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Weird stopping issues

Hey guys! New printer here. Today i noticed a weird problem. I am making four bed clips, and an lcd knob. The clips have no issue printing but the knob i get the issue. When the printer is working on the clips it is fine. Now when it moves to the knob it works a little bit and then stops. I noticed when it stops i feel and here a click. (Now i am new, so i cant give exact names.) Its the motor where the long threaded bar is. (Stepper motor?) What is going on? Looking at the bed straight on i see the clips are clean. The knobs initial layer/s had some stuff on top. (The knob print looks okay though.) Whats going on? Is it that i am sharing a gcode with two different projects? Also i have this printer next to my staircase, and my cats sometimes jump to that table. Is the bed off? The first layer/s looked good. Thank you in advance.

With power off try pushing the X and Y axes around and see if there is higher friction somewhere.

 

Is the printer rebooting when this happens?  Does it go back to the same screen as if you unplugged and plugged in the printer?  You may be overloading your power supply.

 

Also there is a bug/feature in cura that it can move extremely slow on extruder retractions.  You may have "discovered" this feature in cura but I would expect it to happen on every clip.  But the solution is to change retraction speed in cura from 0 to 40.

If none of this helps then please show a 10 second video of what you describe.  Put the video on youtube or similar and provide a link to the video.
