Vertical Axis motor slip
« on: March 16, 2016, 01:44:55 PM »
Hi Support,

My UPBox has just developed a Vertical axis issue.
After a platform level calibration, the bed rises slowly to auto height detect. This all works fine.
I then start a print and the bed rises rapidly, but makes a grinding noise for a short period as the bed rises, the print then starts about 1 to 2 inches short of the print bed.

I haven't looked behind the panel that houses the vertical axis motor, so I don't know how it's driven, but it sounds like a belt slipping.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Adrian Bear
