I tried to print a scaled down Mars globe yesterday (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:408034) and the print stopped at 24 hours with a flat top. I checked my machine this morning and found that I could not raise the Z axis higher than about 3 inches. I have printed 6.5 inch tall models in the past. Has anyone else experienced this? do you have any suggestions about what could be causing this? The machine is printing fine otherwise.
I just had to reload windows on my 3D printing laptop and lost all of my settings for my I3 V2. I am looking at the configuration manual and under printer shape it says to set Home X, Home Y, and Home Z to min however these fields are currently set to zero and I can only put a number in them. I remember having this issue when I first set it up but I forgot what I put in these fields. I am also missing some of the Slic3r settings but I should be able to work those out. If anyone can share their Repetier printer settings it would be greatly appreciated.
Has anyone upgraded their RepRapGuru to the latest Marlin v1.1.5 firmware? I was going to give it a shot and start modifying the Configuration.h using values from the old version that came with the printer vs the Folger2020 example values the new v1.1.5 includes. If someone already did this work and was successful, I'd love to clone your repo and try it out. Otherwise, I'll give it a go sometime soon and share my results.
