Print Head Getting Stuck on Scaffolding

Recommended Posts

Posted · Print Head Getting Stuck on Scaffolding

Hi forum...


I am having issues where my print head will get stuck at arbitrary positions when printing the scaffolding of an object (as per the attached image). 


I am not sure if there is a setting within Cura that I can change, or whether this is more of an hardware / setup issue. 


Any help / suggestions will be gratefully received.


Kind Regards,

Harold Clements


The printer is an AnyCubic Mega S with the supplied 1.75mm filament.

    I don't know your printer, so this is guessing. To me this looks like a hardware issue. Maybe some connectors that are not seated well or are oxidated? Or electromagnetic noise on the power line or environment? Motors starting or stopping causing pulses, or sparks you get in cold dry winter weather? Or a cell phone going off nearby? This sort of things can easily lock up electronics. (Cell phone often locks up my USB-keyboard and mouse.)
