Hi there everyone. I’ve got an issue with some of my prints where the print head starts making a loud clunking noise while traveling back towards stepper motor, then stops. Meanwhile the extruder is still pumping out the filament and the build plate carries on as if nothing was wrong.
Occasionally the situation is reversed, plate stops and head carries on. Either way, the stopped component’s stepper is off and that component can be easily moved back and forth by hand.
This is intermittent and appears to be only on large parts, but not always.
I’m designing in Fusion and slicing with Cura. I’ve redrawn parts and re sliced multiple times, reoriented on the build plate, printed slower, etc.
Printing a small part now which did the same thing last night and again this morning when sliced on it’s side, but so far is printing fine standing up on end.
Thanks in advance,
