Z Axis problem

Post by FugBucker » Sat Aug 29, 2015 10:14 am

Hi, I have fitted a RAMBO 1.1B board and after a lot of copy/paste have got it working on my Acrylic i3. Everything seems to be working correctly except when I manually home the Z axis It only moves down a couple of mms and start grinding and making an awful noise and stops. It moves fine with manual control on all the movement smoothly and quietly. Is there a setting in Marlin for this or could it be binding when the home command is given...?

It seem to be the problem of the endstop. how about swap the endstops?

Turned out to be the current to the steppers. Turned it up in the firmware from 135 to 160 and it's working now. I modified the Z axis fitting two screw threads each side to give better stability but it probably upped the resistance a bit...

Thanks for the reply...

Hi
I have the same problem, i think that the rods are not aligned with the brass nut (piece no. 17). I tried to disassemble and reassemble the X axis but I think that I do wrong procedure.
Can you help me?

Hi
little news, now when I mount Z-axis top mount (no. A8) the motors force and don't move, without the top mount are ok.
Which is the possible cause?

P.S. My printer is Acrylic Prusa I3 Pro-b with GT2560
