Monoprice mini v2 - initial x,y offset and layer start

Recommended Posts

Posted · Monoprice mini v2 - initial x,y offset and layer start

New to 3d printing...

I currently have both the offset and layer start x and y set to 0.0

 

On every model at the end of the print the printer tries to put the nozzle into the tower, this also happens if I cancel a print job before it starts printing. 

 

The models are centered on the plate just fine.

 

am i doing something wrong?

,...  it tries to put it really "into" the tower? Is it crashing into the tower?

 

Best regards!

It is trying to move it in the direction of the tower. Makes a chattering noise once it reaches the belt stop and keeps trying to move towards the tower.

 

And thank you for replying.

Issue fixed. I had a friend come in and show me what was happening. He corrected a setting (i don't remember which one now).

Would be interesting to me (and maybe others as well) which setting it was - could you ask him?

I asked and he doesn't remember which of the dozens of changes he made would have fixed the issue.  Apparently I was doing a lot of things wrong, as expected of a newbie to 3d printing, using a printer that has very little documentation.  One of the things he said was that I needed to be using "expert" mode so that I had access to all the settings instead of the few default ones.

The other big change we made was getting a windows laptop connected to it instead of the Mac.
