Head Will Not Move After Level Bed & Crashes If Auto Homed

Postby jmbneaf » Mon Aug 21, 2017 2:27 pm

Hey all,

On our gMax v1.5 XT+, the print head will not move in the Z Axis after leveling the bed, and will crash into the bed it if auto homed.

After Auto Home (G28), and after Level Bed (G29) - we get garble, "- *.,(" to be exact, for the Z Axis position (see attached image).

Any ideas what causes this? If we power off and restart, we'll get a "Good" level 1 out of every 4 try's.

Thanks,
~J

I am having the same problem. The only difference for my printer is that it crashes every time after leveling then performing auto home. My printer also crashes if I try to print after leveling. I have tried to print an object of my own and object supplied with printer.
