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

Recommended Posts

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.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
