Y Axis Wandering
I am new here, but not to 3D printing. I have been using 3D printers for years at my work. I decided to build one for myself and made a huge mistake buying a Chinese crap... Now, I have tons of problems. I am not really sure if this is a good place to ask.
I am using Repetier Host and the Firmware on my i3 clone. Here are two major problems I am facing now:
1. SD card does not read. It detects the card, but shows no files in there. I tried with 6 different cards and formatted them with FAT32. I used gco extension with 8 characters max. No luck.
2. When the printer prints, it wanders off to right side (Y axis) evertime it hits 30+ layer. Somehow, motor does not want to pull the extruder back. It keeps going to right until it hits the end or I hit Reset button. It makes that every time. I could not get any finished object so far. I tried different USB cables on different USB port combinations, result is the same.
I appreciate for any lead.
