printer totally not worked for 4 days now help needed please
edited February 2017 in Repetier-Server
I have a HicTop hictop prusa i3 aluminum from china printer and was told to update the firmware. ever since then it not printed anything right after reading trough the forums here, i have managed to get it printing but not correctly.
the printer starts off on a test print of a 20mm shape its ok when doing the raft then once it starts to do the shape
the z axis moves up to fast on each slice so i just get a spiral of filament spinning off the raft
and if i do actually get it to do anything near printing when the nozzle lifts up it leaves a string of filament and it all mounts up to a spiky mess.
i am using marlin http://www.3dprintingforum.us/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=298
and was advised to use repetier server so i have bought it and still cant get a solid print from the machine.
i also have auto bed leveling. even that isnt working correctly it does the levling thing and one side is about .5mm out
