Uneven board
« on: March 19, 2013, 10:23:46 PM »
Got my printer (3D up mini) last week and have been having a bit of fun.
Finally got some software that I am happy with, openSCAD.

I have an issue with the plate.
I can do the folder over paper test in the centre, but if I move the print head to the left, there is ample room under the head.
When I move the print head to the right, it crashes on the plate.

This means bigger prints won't grip on the left side leading to lift and no plastic is printed on the right due to lack of room.

Are there some screw/settings/hacks I can do to try to fix this problem?
I've tried lifting corners of the box to see if it is twisted but it is a sturdy built box.
Probably getting a variance of .4mm from left to right.

Hi Russell,

Have you done the platform calibration? (see section 6.8.a of the manual)

Of course. Must have been a little hasty when first reading through the manual.
Hope I've done it right now.

Hi Russel,

Did the platform calibration solve the problems you were having?
