Z axis won't move on anything but demo gcodes

Recommended Posts

Posted · Z axis won't move on anything but demo gcodes

Hi, totally new to 3D printing.  I just got one of the cheapest printers on the market, labists mini 3d (AKA Easythreed X1), to get my feet wet. I am trying to use Cura v. 4.6.1. I  have also used the slicer that came with the printer. Neither of them print correctly. The x and y axis are fine, it's the z axis that won't move, and eventually the nozzle just starts plowing through the design. It prints correctly when I use one of the demo gcodes that came with the machine, so I know it's not the machine itself.  Is there something I need to flip in the code, or insert, to get the z axis to move?

Thanks for the file, I sliced it and the gcode looks fine.

 

Could you please attach one of the demo gcodes that prints OK to this thread?
