I'm having issues with the Z-axis motor on an almost-3 y/o makergear. When the z-axis rises at a fast speed, it slips and lowers despite the motor attempting to push the plate up. It can't resist the force of gravity of the build plate. I'm looking in to potentially buying another motor or seeing if I can fix one. In the meantime, I've found a temporary solution:
If I change the z axis speed to a lower setting (I used 300mm/s) I do not have the issue with raising the build plate. However, I don't see an option that allows me to change the z axis speed for the homing that occurs at the start of a new print.
I'm guessing I'd need to get deeper into simplify3d or even the firmware. Can someone help with this? I'm used a M2 dual extruder.
The place to discuss your hardware and software/firmware modifications...
