Z-Stage won't stay. Drops .635 cm very quick.

Posted · Z-Stage won't stay. Drops .635 cm very quick.

I just finished assembling the UM+ and I am having trouble with the Z-Stage.

Every time I try to calibrate the Z-switch, the print bed immediately drops approximately .635 cm (1/4 inch) and then stops. It's not a slow drop either. It's immediate.

I've raised the print bed several times, and found this happens all the way down the lead screw. However, the speed and distance of the drop height decreases dramatically if I only raise it to just below the X-motor.

Problem solved. Heater cable was too tight and was dragging the z-stage down.
