Re: Z stuck, belts grinding, problems everywhere

If you blow your mini rambo with a wire brush like I assume I did, would the extruder need replaced too? Would it be giving me all these auto leveling problems?

Re: Z stuck, belts grinding, problems everywhere

I've already bought and replaced my mini rambo. I am currently using cura lulzbot edition 3.2.27. Heres a picture of my gcode.

Re: Z stuck, belts grinding, problems everywhere

Success! sort of... I updated the firmware (didn't even think of doing that) and it actually pulls the extruder up like normal and goes through the process. It still has problems with boundaries though. When it gets to the apex of it's run to reposition itself to start, you hear what sounds like bel...

Re: Z stuck, belts grinding, problems everywhere

Here's a quick 2 or 3 second video of where it's at and what it sounds like when I try to manually move the print head up from the bed.

Z stuck, belts grinding, problems everywhere

A while back I had a problem that seemed to come out of nowhere. The printer used to lightly touch the contact plates in the corner. After a while it was jamming them down hard. I cleaned the head with a wire brush and then it really started to go crazy. Soon the print head was going off the edge of...

Re: Bed extends too far and belts grind

How did you clean the head? Did you by any chance use a wire brush while the heater was on? I did actually. I saw someone say to clean the head with damp cotton cloth when the head was at printing temp. The stuff wasn't coming off so I used a small wire brush that came with a 3d printer repair kit....

Bed extends too far and belts grind

I finally got the part printed that I needed and everything installed OK. I've had problems with the probes being dirty so I gave the head and the probes a good cleaning. I go to reprint and the bend extends well beyond where it should be and doesn't stop. The belt starts to grind and when it finall...
