Hello! I’ve had my Mini for two months now and I love every bit of it. I tried learning a few new things and ventured from the provided Cura 21.03 to the latest download Cura 3.x. After installing 3.x, I received a firmware update notification and figured “No problem, I’ll update!” Boy was that a mistake…
I followed the directions and annotated my Z Offset (Z:-1.25) and Extruder Steps (E833.00), conducted the upgrade, and went into the console and sent the commands to place the information back. I confirmed the defaults were set correctly, and went to print. Now, a proper skirt won’t be printed (it’ll print either part or the original size of the object if I scale it), and it feels like it is randomly printing correctly for a minute or two and then lose track and extrude either higher or too little filament (using 3MM PLA inland filament).
I tried cleaning the machine…same results.
I tried using a different filament…same results.
I tried uninstalling Cura 3.x and went back to 21.03…same results.
I tried loading the default firmware…same results.
I tried adding a new machine and removing the old one…same results.
I tried uninstalling Cura and reinstalling completely…same results.
I’m very new to this (obviously) and I’m not sure what else I can try or what settings I can mess with to see where I may be going wrong with this. I appreciate any and all help I can get.
