Hi, I just bought a standard MKII printer. The first two
times I turned on the machine the axis calibration process worked fine. After
that it started not working.
When I do the calibration, the Z axis and the Y axis come to
the end and the motors continue to spin making a bad noise.
The same thing happens when I start printing, in the first layer
the nozzle presses against the plate.
Why does this version do not have limit switches?
How can it calibrate properly without switches? Can anyone
tell me how I can solve the problem? Do I have to request assistance from
Thanks so much.
I also have this problem on the x axis at initialisation. It appears to travel to its end point then back about 5mm then makes a horrible coarse vibration which can only be stopped on powering printer off. The claibraion shown here
has not worked.
Thanks for any help.
Happy Chinese New Year.
I am posting this in case it helps others.
The problem is fixed.
The x axis was the one that was vibrating so I only applied the black tape to the motor of the X axis. What I have noticed was that the white axis had also come to its stop.
When I put the tape on both motors the printer correctly initialised.
Heres the helpful video again.
