Offset Layers During Printing
OK after sorting out my heated bed installation and wiring issues with the extruder requiring a new ATMega, I am moving onto other challenges. Each time I have test printed, my BoXZY initially is printing fine then part way through the print, skips over in X or Y or both and continues on - it is like it loses where home is. At first I thought it was due to my laptop going to sleep interrupting the print - on more than one occasion it paused and I woke the laptop up and it continued. I figured maybe some glitch occurred during that unintended interruption. Now I disabled sleeping on my laptop and it is still having this skip over problem. I suspect noise of some kind. I am just curious if anyone else is seeing this behavior and what has cured it. The linked photo shows the latest attempt still stuck on the bed and previous attempts in my hand.
Also note in case you think it is relevant, this is a MacBook Pro running Windows 7 on top of VMWare Fusion. And yes I am using a USB cable with ferrite chokes on both ends.
Is this a good question?
