Print starts, then groans, then skips to a new location, groans...etc
I start my print (a snail) and it lays down 5 loops and begins the print. It goes fine for about 30 seconds, then makes this groaning noise, skips half the length of the Y axis and tries to resume (sort of as though it has a new home point). Next, it groans again and proceeds to the maximum Y axis location. Then I kill the print.
The groaning noise worries me, and the location skip really isn't helpful. I had this problem first yesterday. After the failed print, I tried it again but instead of failing in the same fashion, it printed normally except it treated each curves as a series of small straight line segments and vibrated loudly (jerk, attempt line movement, slow down, change direction, repeat as fast as possible). Today I reset my EEPROM X and Y acceleration values from 100 to 80 per recommendations I saw around the site, and tried to print again. No more jerk vibrating curves, but 30 seconds into the print the skipping and groaning happened again.
Has anyone had this problem? Is there a solution? Thanks ahead of time.
Is this a good question?
