what are we looking at????
The reason the issue was only arising after homing and raising the build plate. Once the X axis was home and the lead screw knob turned clockwise to raise the plate, an indentation in the makergear logo on the knob was grabbing the left extruder's thermistor wire, stalling the Z motor. When i attempted to replicate the issue manually after canceling the print, and could not, this was due to the x axis no longer being all the way to the left.
