So I’ve had my mini for a couple of months and have been printing pretty successfully up until today.
I started a print for a small pin for a hinge and the print ended up failing, at some point in this process the abs filament got caught around the spool holder, preventing it from feeding. When I tried to restart the print the filament quickly reached it’s end point and ended up being yanked out of the print head.
I stopped everything, fixed the spool, fed the filament back into the extruder and extruded a few inches to make sure everything was ok. The problem is that when I went to start printing again the print head crashes into the bed at the start of the wiping process. I have no idea what may have been damaged or gotten out of alignment to cause this. I’m using default Cura profiles, I’ve reset the machine and my computer so I’m fairly sure it’s not a software issue. I was contemplating flashing the firmware, but I feel like it’s a mechanical issue. Any ideas for what could be happening?
EDIT: I’ve discovered this might be the bed? It’s currently set all the way forward and I cannot move it in cura in either direction. I get an expected endstop if i try to move it towards me, but if I move it away I get:
< echo:endstops hit: Y:0.00 [expected]
< echo:endstops hit: Y:-0.51
< echo:endstops hit: Y:-0.52
< echo:endstops hit: Y:-0.53
< echo:endstops hit: Y:-0.54
< echo:endstops hit: Y:-0.55
Even though it hasn’t moved at all. I tried turn it off, manually moving the bed all the way in then turning it back on again, and have discovered that I can move the bed towards me without a problem, but it will not move forwards (towards the back of the machine) at all, it just says it hits an endstop.
