So I first got my ender 3v2 and did my first test print after doing alignments and checks. Printed a Benchy flawlessly, no stringing, overhangs were beautiful..layers were smooth as can be.
Tl;dr I messed up and my z axis wouldn't level now.
After this first print which went flawless less..I made a mistake.. a huge one.
I disabled the steppers and moved the extruder on the z axis up halfway to clear up some debris on the nozzle head.. I then thought of moving it up using the stepper and set it to 150 height without first bringing it to home.. as you can imagine, the whole unit moved up beyond the 150 mark and into the top part of the frame and attempted to move up further past that.. causing the whole unit to vibrate and click until I turned it off.. I only realized my mistake too late... Then I switched it back on and attempted to check to see if there was any error with the axis and the level... I attempted to print the x y z cube for calibration and I found out how much I've messed up
Now my prints wouldn't complete.. something is off... I read up about z axis sticking and did the calibration with the rods, the coupler and also spacers.. I checked the rod and it is straight..
My prints all come up to a point and seems to skip upwards and causing the layers at about a 1.5 cm mark to not adhere to each other.. I'm talking about
2mm skip at a certain point..
After much fiddling, finally I got it to print and the z axis towards the bottom looks good.. suddenly it skipped a whole layer again and the extrusion nozzle went up... Fortunately about a few layers of printing in air, the filament managed to find it's way to the print and continued which ended up with this... My question is this... Have I stripped the z axis thread? What am I doing wrong or what can I do to rectify this matter?
Thank you in advance...
