Printer will not move manually on z axis
My K200 delta printer is not able to move the z axis manually. It moves great on the x/y but whenever i try to move the z nothing happens. Does anyone know the reason this might be happening? Thank you in advance!
Any hints in log? Homed before moving? Which firmware?
No hints in log. I never calibrated it because I was never able to yet. Reprap firmware .
That is not very logical. How can you move xy - it uses all motors and also check endstops. You need to home which is also a z move, so does that work?
Have you checked eeprom for wrong values. These can often prevent moves. Like z length 0.
Home works for me. I don't know how to check eeprom values. How do you do that?
Use repetier host or server and select eeprom editor.
ok how do i know if the values are wrong in eeprom
They have a meaning and 0 or NaN or in most cases wrong, especially for z length or steps per mm.
ok thank you! ill try that!
Hello to all!! Please help )) I did not get the right shape of result( the top side is moved to one side with about 15mm and continued to print... the result is like this one
yes in eeprom the z length is 0.0000 what do i do? or what do i change it to?
Your z length = max. Print height of the printer would be in that variable.
ok that fixed it thank you!
