level issue

  • Howdy!

    I think I'm encountering issues with the auto level.
    It appears that my print head has too much give, and the head digs in quite a bit before the sensor acknowledges that it has leveled.
    I have tried tightening all the rollers and the x axis, but no change.

    Here is a video of the issue: https://youtu.be/_is76LLBk1A

    Does any one else's printers have the same amount of give? I didn't record it, but I can easily wobble the whole carriage by hand.

  • @Yanray I had the same issue and have a thread here as well. Try tightening the bottom wheel on the carriage (use the wrench that came with the printer). There shouldn't be any give. You don't need it to be tight, just snug. You shouldn't see any flex when it auto levels. This fixed my issue completely. Try it out!

    Here is a full video of it auto levelling
    You can see the issue when it is levelling the far right of the bed.

    I attempted to adjust the variable resistor for the sensor, but it did help, just not fix it.
