Posted · Z offset changes after every print

Hello, i have

 

Two ender 3v2 modification:

2 z axis

bltouch

upgraded springs

marlin software 

 

One ender 3 s1 (everything original) 

 

And having problem on all printers, after making mesh and setting z offset seems everything ok and prints are perfect, but if i try launch another print z offset already changed and nozzle touch the bed. Z axis perfectly calibrated, bet tight and not moving, x axis stable.

 

Any suggestion?

    The Z-offset is typically a printer firmware thing.  Are you using a plugin in Cura to set the Z-Offset?  Maybe there is something in your startup gcode that affects it?

    Is the actual number value of the Z-offset changing or is the printer simply doing something different (even though the number is the same)?

    Im using cura ant prusa slicer but dont use any z offset settings on it. 

     

    The number of z offset are same but nozzle push plate hard after print. Sometimes even after setting z offset with paper everything ok, i press home and try check one more time and wrong.

    The endstop switches are the same so try swapping the Y endstop switch with the Z endstop switch and see if it makes a difference on at least one machine.

    The Endstop switches aren't very "repeatable".  When you auto-home and level the bed and then the printer sees the "G28" in the StartUp gcode it homes the Z again.  There is no guarantee that the "Z = zero" position is going to be the same location as when you leveled the bed.  It should be OK with ABL but I gave up with my paper leveling and my start gcode has G28 X Y so it leaves the Z where it was during leveling.

    No, don't do that.

    Are you slicing once and then running the same gcode on different machines?

    Do you have a different machine profile for each printer?  I don't think I've ever seen a Z=0 in a gcode file so something is going on to make the nozzle hit the bed.

     

    Load a simple model (a calibration cube will work) and set Cura up to slice.  Use the "File | Save Project" command and post the 3mf file here.

      Maybe something will jump out.

    I think i solved problem: 

    i was using bltouch before every print in gcode, now i calibrate once and leave it alone, now i have ~10 prints on each ender 3v2 and prints are good. 

     

    But i having other issue about ender 3 s1 which firmware i should use? I dont find any similar marlin like i use ender 3v2 (it has good interface for leveling) 

     

    I found this, is this good for ender 3 s1? https://github.com/mriscoc/Ender3V2S1/releases/tag/20221002

    And if this firmware are good i should use UBL or without UBL?

    Save the Z offset: On the Ender 3 V2's new mainboard, the printer automatically stores its onboard memory to the loaded microSD card. Some users have pointed out that the Z offset figures only save to the printer vinyl when the microSD card is plugged in.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
