Z axis not working.

Posted · Z axis not working.

We've purchased the 3D Printer from Makeblock and we've built it. We've given it a test go and and it works, but the Z Axis does not move. I've scanned through the code and cannot find much details on why the issue is happening. It is the Marlin code for the 3D Printer and I've given shots at Makeblock and they just havn't been able to help me. This 3D Printer will be going on display at the Toronto Maker Faire on Saturday, along with some other work.

We've ran 2 different sketches, but the object is always appearing at the corder or the edge. Is that just the pronterface program? We tried adding the measurements of the bed and the depth, but the motor are still not stopping when they need to.

I will add a video to this thread tomorrow morning for further details.

Thank you.

Regards,

JPCI - SMR

    This is ultimaker forum, not makeblock. Do you have a question about Cura? We can address that here. Marlin questions unrelated to ultimaker are best addressed with the reprap community.

        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.
