It won’t let me add a video or photo because I guess new users can’t use attachments? Kind of difficult to show an issue without uploading a video but I digress.Heres a link to the videos and photos on Facebook.
I got my printer on December 23rd, I put it in the house because we were going on a trip to see family for the holidays put it inside (super excited because it came almost 20 days earlier than what I was told),I returned this morning January 1st and put it together today.
After following the instructions I got to the part where you do the Z alignment and it moves up a little then grinds hard ( did not reach the top) and given a driver error. I reset and tried again still same.
reset the configuration to default settings
Reflashed the firmware
Set tensioner tighter and looser
Manually realigned z-axis thinking it was having issues on the x-axis because the z weren’t aligned.
Went into setting and had the stepper move each axis. z worked fine and x failed grinding trying to move 10mm
Unplugged x-axis stepper and ran zalignment again
Process worked fine. Plugged x stepper in again tried again failed again.
I own a JG maker artist d pro and after almost rebuilding it other than the board case and power supply, I bought this looking at review after review finding just the zrails might need to be manually adjusted out of the box and I was fine with that. But I’m having flash backs of the JG maker, seeing I have either a blown board or stepper motor, or both straight out of the box…
I purchased this machine because of ease of use compared to my other machines and plentiful reviews stating this is a good starting printer if not the best, so I’m not a beginner but I just wanted that ease. Has anyone dealt with this issue? I can’t seem to find anyone else experienceing the same issue.
