print failure

Recommended Posts

I was printing a bracelet and after a few layers the printhead moved to a different part of the bed and started printing there. The bracelet wasn't finished yet. It started to give me messages like:

<echo endstops hit: X 81.41

<echo endstops hit: X 81.51

<echo endstops hit: X 81.86

and so on.....

I printed the bracelet in cura 14.01 with no problem.

I'm printing with usb.

Can someone please tell me what's going on.

The first layer in Cura 14.03 is horrible bye the way.

Are you sure? It sounds like a loose pulley. Did it move in only one axis such as only X or only Y? If so one of the 6 pulleys on that particular axis has a set screw that isn't tight enough. You can just tighten all 6 or just the 2 on the short belt as that one is most likely the problem or you can use a permanent marker and mark each pulley and shaft so if it moves again you can see which one isn't tight enough.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
