Ok, so this night i figured i would try to do my biggest and longest(time wise) print this far by doing the “Snapmaker Accessories Storage Box (v1.1_updated)”. Fired the print up an hour or so before i went to bed and the last time i checked in on it before hitting the bunk it had just began with the 3-4 outer wall layer and all seemed to go smooth.
But today when i got up for work i couldn’t here any printing noises, so i checked up on the printer and it had stopped mid-layer. The nozzle still on the surface of the print, extruder and bed were @ room temp and the progress were at 0h 0min. My first thought was that i have had a power outage or something, so i went down stairs to check out my oven and microwave who’s clock reset to 00:00 with only a ms of power outage. BUT they were still on the right time, and i haven’t gotten an SMS from my power company of any registered problems on my grid either.
So i went back up to check out the printer some more, went in to “Jog-Mode” to get the print head out of the way, and then i saw that all the axes only wanted to go in the “+” direction from where the print have stopped?
If i tried to move them farther in the “-” they would just stop, like they have reached the end of travel, but in "+"
they would “overextend” and bottom out, still trying to move farther.
I pried of the failed print, and tried to toggle the printer on/off and then tried to move the axes again, now they responded and i made it “return to home”…
So well, what the f**k can have happened here? Anyone else here had a similar problem? =/ I really don’t want to try another 19+ hour print and have it fail at 40-ish%
I have some pictures i took to, but since i’m @ work now i can’t upload them to easy.
