Hi all and thanks for my admission to these forums. I am exploring the realm of 3D printing starting with a little M3D and now upgrading to my Lultzbot Mini. I was hoping to get some help with an issue which is this:
When my Lulzbot Mini calibrates before a print, the cable hangs on the back of the bed causing it to not reach the back sensors. The print head crashes right into the bed and ten calibrates to that level, throwing off the print. In fact, it starts printing about a 1/4 inch off the bed and therefore, not at all. I have to hold the cable while the print head aligns with the sensors and even after the print starts, the cable still catches on the bed frequently, although not in any way that interfere’s with the print. Is this common or is something wrong with my machine. This issue doesn’t appear in any reviews I read before choosing the Mini so I feel something may be wrong with my machine. I’m wondering if I secure a plastic bar across the back frame under the cable, it will stop it from catching on the bed.
