First Printings - My Printer on Drugs

Post by DavidP » Wed Jan 04, 2017 7:38 am

Or maybe just having a psychotic episode ... :-)
The printer seems to working ok ... it prints, all axis move, extruder and controls working ...
BUT !!!
I have no idea what its trying to print ...
Whenever attempting simple forms from Thingiverse or Tinkercad ... premade models or a simple dome shape from Tinkercad ... I get the same pattern ... a series of flattened circles running up the middle of the bed ... right to the edge front & back ...
Has anyone seen a similar pattern??

I guess the motors are not moving properly as they should be...

I had thought the motors were moving well ... both auto homing and manually controlled through the LCD screen control ...
When asked to do a 3D print ... it has no idea how to handle a file for 3D printing ... :-(

This is becoming the worst purchase I've ever made ... and that's saying a lot ... :-(
I had assumed that when the printer was fully assembled ... it would have a basic operating system to get you started ... :-(
It's looking as if I'll end up with a display piece to dust occasionally ... that doesn't work ... :-(
